1/7/2017: A very good sequel! Tons of action and a good story. Beckinsale in all leather doesn't hurt either.

Underworld: Evolution tried to built a plot where there really is no space for one. It gets very convoluted and heavy which makes it pretty unenjoyable.

amazing story, beastly action, everything connects with the overall story, great music, more details about how they go about doing what they do in the human world (about 6 viewings)

Looking at Underworld Evolution as a mindless action adventure, it's not all that bad. It doesn't take itself too seriously, there are some well-directed action sequences, and the characters are far more realized than they were the first time around.

Let's just be honest, the first Underworld is garbage. There's no two ways about it. The dialogue is horrible, the performances are over the top, and the visual effects are dated. But with the three years in between the first and the second, something must have clicked within the writer's room. Evolution is about 30 minutes shorter and much less convoluted than the first entry. When there are exposition-heavy scenes, they add to the story, instead of making things more confusing. I've already spent a couple hours with Selene & company, so I was prepared with the lore and character history. Plus, wasn't it nice getting Kraven out of the way early on in the film? Horrible character.

Len Wiseman isn't the most talented director in Hollywood, or the smartest (considering he wants to make a Die Hard prequel), but I think he knows what people want out of these movies. Kate Beckinsale and some cool vampire-werewolf action are the primary reason these movies make money. While the main villains are set up nicely through flashbacks in the opening scene, they end up having little differences to Bill Nighy's first film villain.

Part of the appeal of this particular Underworld entry is that it's in many ways, a fantasy-horror-western. Sure, it doesn't take place in the wild west, but the way the story is set up is very much similar to that of typical westerns. Selene and Michael spend the entire film on the run and in search of a mystical artifact linked to the past of their species. At the same time, this film suffers from the same problems as most vampire flicks do, the untouchable nature of vampires contributes to a less visceral experience if you know they will ultimately survive whenever they die. In all, it's hard to think I would ever watch this film again, but it's entertaining enough for me to give it a positive review.

+Solid action

+Characters are more realized


-Villains are weak

-So.. are they untouchable?

3/5. While it won't blow your mind, Underworld: Evolution is a fun little sequel to a great movie.

Good = 3/5

While not exactly holding up to it's predecessor by any means, Evolution is still a fun, (while sometimes overly ridiculous, and containing a jumbled plot) action packed, vampire/werewolf filled film. There's still a lot to like here if you're a fan of the genre.

PVC, latex, rubber--skin tight outfit for the horndog nerd gamer audience, not that there's anything wrong with that.

So much politics, and a river in a cave.

Its one of the few sequels that actually compliments the movies that came beforehand. The movie is good do largely to the great acting job of Tony Curran who played the antagonist Marcus. He made the movie good because he's one of those villains that can strike fear into the audience. This movie is all about the villain. If you like a good villain this is the movie to see.

Kate Beckinsale vuelve a interpretar a la guerrera vampira y Scott Speedman a su amante, mitad vampiro mitad Lycan (Hombre Lobo). Esta vez, los dos se enfrentan a un poderoso vampiro llamado Curan, quien intenta liberar a su hermano de...¡Bah! ¿a quién le importa?

good follow up from the first movie and to show how it all began with flashback so call scene here and there.

Fun hold up very well I love the atmosphere

The first one was boring, but easy to follow. This one was boring and incomprehensible.

Of course will not be considered a classic critically, but this movie just looks immaculate. The actors simply look awesome, effects and gore are tremendous but there is more to this movie thatn just that. Well paced, the right length, awesome on the big screen and a great night in too. The best modern Horror/Super hero movie I can think of.

More Kate Beckinsale, more okay plot lines.

In this movie they do battle with the oldest of the vampires and werewolves.
