Underworld: Evolution Reviews

November 27, 2006
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.

The plot is so convoluted that missing even five minutes at a stretch won't make any difference in your comprehension of the story.

I can't even begin to divulge the storyline because it's mostly unfathomable.
January 26, 2006
I dare anyone to follow the plot, which manages, like some ill-baked meringue, to be both too light on the surface and too densely clotted underneath.
January 26, 2006
A monster chiller sequel that is visually spectacular but rather overburdened with story.

There's nothing new under the sun -- or out of it -- as vampire movies go.

... the series never expands on the promise of its one innovation.

There's no guiding power at work here; it's Evolution without a shred of intelligent design.
January 24, 2006
... despite an admirable attempt to test the boundaries of the genre, the continuing saga about the war between the vampires and the werewolves is humorless, too confusing and not particularly fun to watch.

Underworld: Evolution is representative of the 'modern' vampire movie -- loud, violent, and raucous.

January 24, 2006
... this Underworld sequel has only piled on the things that made its predecessor annoying: Heavy-handed backstory and aimless, affectless mayhem.

As far as gratuitous follow-ups go, it is neither evolution nor devolution. A more appropriate title is Underworld: Stagnation.

With leads who strain to manage one facial expression between them, and a cinematographer shooting everything through the same steel-blue filter, Underworld: Evolution is a monotonous barrage of computer-generated fur and fangs.

Director Len Wiseman, formerly of the music-video world, is still stuck on music-video logic: Throw in awesome-looking stuff, throw in more awesome-looking stuff, don't worry so much about connecting anything.

... a movie that beats you over the head until you -- along with all the fanged and furry beasts of the future -- are senseless.

As with Underworld: Evolution's 2003 predecessor, you leave the theatre feeling as if the filmmakers are still back there, with PowerPoint flow charts, explaining the flashback-intensive plotline ...
January 24, 2006
The script ... isn't particularly interesting ...

Pic should please a fan base that has grown during original's international theatrical and homevid roll-out.
January 20, 2006
... there's little wit or genuine suspense to elevate the proceedings above the level of a cheesy comic book.
January 20, 2006
... Underworld: Evolution registers visually but isn't alive enough to cast a reflection or shadow.
