Blade II

Other mistake: Towards the end of the film, after Snipes beats the crap out of a lot of vampires, Whistler throws Blade's sunglasses to him. They show him throw them in one shot, then in the next shot they show Snipes catching them. But look in the background at Whistler, he doesn't have the glasses, but is moving his arm like he is throwing them. The glasses must have been computer animated, and bad editing contributed to this mistake. (01:37:34)

Continuity mistake: Just after Scud gets blown up, Reinhardt's face has no blood on it. Yet when he walks out of the room with Whistler, his face is covered in blood.

Migster

Revealing mistake: When Damoscinos is dying, just after being bitten, he stumbles to the ground. As he does so, you can see the tube feeding the green "blood" to his neck on the ground behind him.

Trivia: At the end of the film, Rush is killed by Blade, who is hiding behind the curtain at a peep-show booth. In the 1996 film "The Crow: City of Angels", the lead character Ashe surprises a villain in the same manner. Both films were written by David S. Goyer. Goyer had disowned "The Crow: City of Angels" however, due to studio-enforced edits, and decided to re-use the scene in this film.

Trivia: According to series star Wesley Snipes, the scene in which Reinhardt snidely asks Blade "Can you blush?" is based on an actual incident from his life.

Trivia: Whenever you see Scud, he's wearing a t-shirt with the logo of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence (B.P.R.D.). The B.P.R.D. is the agency that Hellboy, another comic book character, works for. Hellboy is the next movie to be directed by Guillermo del Toro, Blade II's director.

Question: Why aren't Nyssa and the other vampire fried by the big UV grenade? Sure, they dove underwater, but light doesn't diffuse THAT much underwater. I'm using the logic from an entry's correction that the UV light bounced around the corners is still enough to kill reapers, so it ought to kill them too.

Answer: In Blade I we saw that with sunscreen and the avoidance of direct exposure Deacon Frost and his lackeys could go out by day. The reapers are probably two or three times more sensitive than normal vampires so the exposure was probably not long or direct enough to kill the regular vampires.

Question: Has Marco Beltrami's score for this film ever been released as a CD? I have looked around quite a bit, but have never found it.

Answer: Yes. It's been released in the USA (Varese Sarabande 302 066 365 2) and in Germany (VSD 6365).
