Blade II Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Allow me to cut right to the chase. Blade II's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer doesn't look as good as Blade's first-class high definition presentation. And, for the most part, that's okay. So take a breath, resist jumping the "DNR" gun, and let's examine the film on its shortcomings and merits. Most of the criticisms people will levy against the encode actually trace back to del Toro and cinematographer Gabriel Beristain's very specific intentions. There are, however, a few issues that do not: glaring edge halos plague many a scene, crush drains the life out of several shots, and unwieldy noise barges in without an invitation. None of it is terribly distracting, mind you, but each nuisance suggests a newly minted master might have improved image quality. The film is also relatively soft on the whole, although I doubt overzealous noise reduction or any other poorly implemented filtering technique is the chief culprit. Despite a pronounced, fearless palette, Blade II is a darker, grittier, grainier and, yes, softer sequel, as Beristain slathers most every scene in piercing blues, bold yellows and insatiable shadows. Understanding del Toro's endgame -- to make the movie look as much like a heavily inked, richly colored, Mignola-inspired comicbook as possible -- is crucial to separating intention and filmic softness from legitimate causes for concern. And as far as I can tell, he succeeded. Primaries are stunning, black levels are bottomless, detail is inconsistent but earns a pass, many a closeup makes a greater impression, delineation is in keeping with del Toro and Beristain's style, and grain is intact. Moreover, significant artifacting, banding, aliasing and other compression and encoding irregularities aren't at play, and print blemishes, though present, are few and far between.

I'm sure some will dismiss Blade II's presentation entirely. It doesn't look as good as 'Blade' did! Warner screwed up the transfer! DNR! DNR! And that's a shame. The encode isn't perfect, and even I suspect it could be better. Much better? I just don't think so. Sometimes soft is just soft. Dark is just dark. Obscured detail is just obscured detail. Most of all, intention is often just intention, no matter how you slice it. Del Toro wasn't interested in making a slick, polished, razor-sharp actioner. He wanted to make an in-the-shadows, down-in-the-sewer horror film; a grim, gritty horror film with shots ripped straight out of the panels of a grim, gritty comicbook. I, for one, am pleased with Warner's treatment and encode. Not ecstatic. Not thrilled. Just pleased. Regardless, only one thing really matters: nothing about the transfer prevented me from eagerly feeding on Blade II and drinking down every last drop.


Blade II Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Ready to wake the dead? Blade II hacks its way through Reaper after Reaper with a pair of sternum-cracking DTS-HD Master Audio surround tracks. Dialogue is gruff, rough and grumbly, just as it should be in a action-oriented horror flick that features an ongoing rivalry between Wesley Snipes and Ron Perlman. It isn't all huffs and tough-guy puffs, though. Every voice -- whether it belongs to a young vampire princess, a Blood Pack warrior or an ancient creature of the night -- is crisp, clear and perfectly grounded and prioritized in the world del Toro has created. And the rear speakers expand that world exponentially. Sewers are vast and ominous, vampire lairs are cold and sinister, Blade's base of operations is open and spacious, and night clubs and tunnels packed with Reapers sound as terrifying as they look. Directional effects are precise and involving, pans are smooth, and the entire film, minus a few scenes that are, for whatever reason, a bit too front-heavy, is as immersive as action/horror hybrids come. The LFE channel packs plenty of punch too, amping up every shootout and duels to the death, throwing its full support behind the sequel's hip hop/electronica soundtrack, and grabbing hold of explosions, gunfire, motorcycle crashes, ninja battles and whatever else Blade II has on tap. Never mind the fact that the film is ten years old. Age has no bearing here.
