Underworld: Evolution continues the saga of war between the vampires and the Lycans. The film goes back to the beginnings of the ancient feud between the two tribes as Selene, the beautiful vampire heroine, and Michael, the lycan hybrid, try to unlock the secrets of their bloodlines. This will be a modern tale of action, intrigue and forbidden love, which takes them into the battle to end all wars as the immortals must finally face their retribution.Written by
In Underworld (2003) Victor says that the elders began their sleep rotation cycle fourteen centuries before the present day. Yet in the opening battle sequence for this film, all three elders, Victor, Marcus and Amelia, are awake even though the subtitle places the scene in the year 1202. See more »
(at around 35 mins) When Michael tears the paint cans to throw them at the windows, so that sunlight would not enter and damage Selene, you can clearly see his hands full of paint, but in the next shot, his hands are clean. See more »
Over all, I'm still very much immersed in the world set up by the writers and director Len Wiseman. The characters are very interesting, but we get around the same run time to develop the characters and so I somewhat lose interest. Michael Corvin still isn't that great of a character but he has more to do in this one and he comes off as okay. The awesome Kate Beckinsale is back and continues play the role quite well. Markus (Tony Curran) has a great look to him and he's a great antagonist although I can't say he has the presence of the great Bill Nighy. His brother is a great looking werewolf but he's a mindless monster so his threat is somewhat limited from my perspective. The decision makes him a lackluster villain who spills plenty of blood but nothing else.
The score by Marco Beltrami is a damn good one, loving his works. The action in Hollywood fashion is intense and enjoyable. The vivid sex scenes are merely eye candy but I'm sure most won't complain. I highly recommend the movie but the first one is still the greatest by far.
