I'm not sure what is that makes me such a glutton for punishment that I would hunt down Boll's second Bloodrayne effort, but glutton I am, and so I went ahead and wasted a Netflix slot on Bloodrayne 2: Deliverance.

It's the late 1800s, and Rayne has since relocated from Romania to the frontiers of western American, still on the hunt for vampires. Which is good news for the people of the small town of Deliverance, which is about to be put on the map as the railroad is coming through, connecting it to the rest of the country. You see the infamous Billy the Kid, who's actually an incredibly powerful vampire, sees this as the perfect opportunity to build a vampire army. So he takes the children of Deliverance hostage to keep the townsfolk under control, and patiently waits for the completion of the railroad. However, two of the kids he snatched were friends of Rayne, and now her vampire hunting has taking a turn for the personal. Still, Billy is far too strong for Rayne to handle herself, so she rustles herself up some allies and prepares to paint the town red.

Once again, Boll shows without a doubt that he doesn't have the foggiest clue what makes Rayne such a popular character. She's a confident, sexual badass, yet Boll just absolutely refuses to portray her as such. Never mind the fact that Rayne has been fighting vampires for the better part of a hundred years, she's still extremely unsure of herself and incredibly weak, easily overcome and captured by a group of baby vampires. The sexual aspect is missing too, which is actually a step backwards as he got it right in the last movie. There's no sexuality at all in this movie, not even wanton nudity which is one thing Boll usually gets right. Even Natassia Malthe's body is lacking some serious figure after ogling Loken for ninety minutes. You can't just ignore such an integral part of the character.

Ruining an established character aside, this is just not a good movie. Zack Ward, as Billy the Kid, is an absolutely worthless villain, and was not intimidating in the slightest. The plot is paper thin, and just serves to move us along to the next shitty action scene. The whole vampire aspect is basically skipped over in place of standard shootouts. Yes, in this movie, vampires can be dropped with a single bullet. Adding even further insult to injury is the sheer number of unfunny, unwitty little one-liners floating around. For example, at the end of the film, one character comes out with, "Life is like a penis. When it's hard you get screwed, when it's soft you can't beat it." It's not relevant to the situation, nor was it a reply to anything. He just says it. I can just picture Boll stumbling across that little gem on the internet and getting all giddy, unable to wait to throw that in his next disaster of a film.

Now, as awful as this movie is, in a lot of ways, it's lot better than the last one. First of all, with such a simplistic plot, the story feels a lot less incoherent than the first. Granted, that's not so much a compliment to part two but just one more insult to part one. Secondly, we've actually got some fun characters this go around. John Novak eats up every one of his scenes as the lynch-loving sheriff, complete with his first and only love, his gun, Sadie. As entertaining as he was, he was completely overshadowed by Michael Eklund's Preacher. A fan of guns, cursing, money and women, he's far from a pious man of God, but he had a smile on my face whenever he was on screen. Eklund could probably make a career based on that slimy, shit-eating grin alone if he wanted to. Finally, the biggest factor that helped Deliverance was the feel of the movie. It has the tone of a B-movie, whereas the first movie felt more like a high dollar production. Just from that small change, the viewer subliminally takes on a more lenient attitude towards the movie's flaw. Of course, that doesn't make it the movie any better, just makes the lower expectations a bit more acceptable.

So it's got some points that place it ahead of Bloodrayne, but what's that old saying about getting kicked in the shins instead of the balls? Typical Uwe Boll waste of time. 2/10.
