The plot remains a rambling nonsense of ancient evil, clan rivalries, and hidden history.

While it is still plagued by many of the same problems of the first film, Underworld: Evolution is generally an improvement over the original and an entertaining diversion.

Yes, I'll admit, it's better than the first film, but really not by much.

Nudity and excessive exposition accompany gore-infused visual f/x in this splashy modern Goth extravaganza.
January 16, 2009
Overall, Underworld: Evolution is a vast improvement over its predecessor Underworld (2003), even if it generally suffers from the twin evils of stupidity and seriousness.

It never lives up to the potential of its premise about a centuries-old war between rival clans of vampires and werewolves.
November 21, 2008
...the series continues to squander its undeniably irresistible premise of vampires and werewolves duking it out...
August 7, 2008
This is one of the more maddening franchises going right now, because so much potential is being wasted by director Len Wiseman, who can't seem to get the formula right.

I'm thinking about hair color after just having seen an action-horror movie; that's a bad sign.

Underworld films are a highly specialized taste, and those who've acquired it know who they are. Everyone else should give this one a wide berth.

Not a lot to recommend this sequel.
October 9, 2006
The movie is intermittently entertaining and often gory but rarely exciting.
October 7, 2006
The plot is so convoluted that missing even five minutes at a stretch won't make any difference in your comprehension of the story.

The digital critters look much better than in the first film, it's fun seeing Derek Jacobi and Bill Nighy vamp it up, and the sight of Kate in that suit makes it worth squinting through all the murk.

It's interesting and very telling that in the credits the actors are named last. It's Wiseman's way of acknowledging his films are not about performances but special effects.
June 24, 2006
I can't even begin to divulge the storyline because it's mostly unfathomable.
May 26, 2006
Takes itself way too seriously and relies way too heavily on its "multi-generational gothic soap opera" exposition volleys that crop up whenever someone's *** is not being kicked.
April 1, 2006
Evolution's action sequences are as horribly bungled as its plot, resulting in a string of repetitive confrontations that feel toothless even by the last movie's standards.
March 29, 2006
There isn't much that is new or fresh about Underworld Evolution . . .
