Tough-as-nails vampire hunter Derek Bliss (Jon Bon Jovi) is on the hunt for "suckers" in the heart of Mexico when he receives a new assignment from a mysterious client. Thrown together with a group of slayers, including sexy Zoey (Natasha Gregson Wagner), who may or may not be one of the undead, Derek and company are up against a growing number of fast-moving, bloodthirsty vampires and their elusive and powerful leader, who has plans of her own for the slayers.
The sequel to the over-all great first part doesn't completely reach it's origin's quality. Nevertheless it has all the trademarks from the previous film: the lonesome and hardened hunter (Jon Bon Jovi does a good job here, although James Woods was the cooler guy), a great - female - main-villain and several gory scenes. And they often make references to the first part. Not perfect, but good entertainment anyways!
