Bloodrayne 2: Deliverance

Rayne has left Europe to travel to the US where she keeps fighting vampires of all types. When she arrives in the little town of Deliverance, she finds out that a vampire called Billy the Kid is terrorising the locals and wants to create an army of vampires and use the railroad that’s supposed to arrive pretty soon as a means to spread his power over the entire nation. It’s up to Rayne to stop him but with the locals being terrified, there’s little help to be expected. Until Pat Garrett arrives that is…

Sound and Vision:
The image quality isn’t bad but overall the movie is quite dark and lacks a bit of detail here and there. The sound does what it’s supposed to but nothing more.

Extras:
– Audio commentary by Uwe Boll
– Extended and deleted scenes
– Making Of including interviews with director & cast

The Making Of is hilarious! The cast seem to have the idea they’re in some sort of mega-production, Natassia Malthe truly believes Kristanna Loken couldn’t make it for this movie due to her schedule and Zack Ward has no clue about movies (he compares Bloodrayne 2 with Bram Stoker’s Dracula meets “The Unforgiven” … someone should maybe tell him it’s “Unforgiven”) and even says he kicks Ben Kingsley’s ass in Bloodrayne. This and much more to laugh with in the “Making Of”!

Conclusion:
Where Bloodrayne was Uwe Boll’s interpretation of the original videogame from Majesco and Terminal Reality, this time Boll adds a whole lot of Sergio Leone to the mix. Gone are the medieval times, it’s the Wild West now with even legendary figures like Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid joining the show! And it still sucks monkeyballs! It gets even worse than it already was!

Boll clearly was inspired by Leone’s “The Good, The Bad & The Ugly” as about half the shots in the movie are clear copies but unfortunately the addition of vampires doesn’t do the storyline any good. Add to that ridiculously bad acting from mainly Zack Ward as Billy the Kid and the fact that half the scenes during daytime seem to have been recorded with a handycam and you can imagine this isn’t a piece of art.

Unless you would love to see the cast make a fool out of themselves in the “Making Of” I would suggest to pass on this release from Splendid Film (oh the irony!)
