'Bloodrayne 2 - Deliverance'
(Natassia Malthe, Michael Paré, Zack Ward, et al / 2-Disc DVD / NR / 2007 / Toucan Cove)
Overview: It's a hundred years later, and the vampire Rayne has arrived in the town of Deliverance, Montana where a group of vampire cowboys have emerged. Led by Billy the Kid, hell bent on creating his own kingdom, he slaughters townspeople and rounds up children. He spares the life of Chicago Chronicle reporter Newton Pyles. Rayne aligns herself with Pat Garret, a member of the long-thought dead Brimstone society, a dishonest preacher, and a low life named Franson, to stop Billy the Kid and show the world how the West was really won.
DVD Verdict: Some things never change! The master of error, Uwe Boll (who has previously adapted other video games to the screen with magical results like House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, and the first BloodRayne) returns to direct this sequel (the second in an alleged trilogy) which finds the sexy, half human/half vamp Rayne (Natassia Malthe, replacing Kristanna Loken who wisely chose not to reprise her role) years after the events of the first film and in the middle of the wild west!<>
She teams up with lawman Pat Garret (Michael Pare) against the vampiric Billy the Kid (Zack Ward, soon to be seen in Boll's Postal) and his clan of blood suckers. As you can expect from anything that has Boll's name attached to it, 'BloodRayne 2' features atrocious acting, laughable action scenes, and ungodly direction that could be done better by most amateur film students.
Malthe looks quite good in tight leather with red hair, but her physical appearance alone can't save this turkey. All in all, if you thought the first film was bad, be prepared; because 'BloodRayne 2' makes the first film look like Citizen Kane!
