If your only response after seeing 2011's medieval siege-and-slaughter opus
The "Blood" ostensibly refers to family turmoil on both sides: The marauders are avenging their leader's murdered son, while the castle's wounded leader sends his first born (Tom Rhys Harries) to find a mercenary cousin, Guy (a manscaped Tom Austen) — veteran of the first movie's fighting — to help defend their keep. But literal overcomes figurative here, as the title's promise of violence is dutifully met in gory, sonically squishy close-quarter melees shot in Confuse-o-vision, as if the camera had been strapped to a whirring blender before the footage was edited with the puree button.
Character work in slapped-together action sops like this is typically defined by the cheap measuring stick of pained stares, which makes the wasted use of "Game of Thrones" alum
