7/10: A superb sequel for fans - others should avoid
Saturday, January 21, 2006

Underworld Evolution is a film for fans of the genre - if you like it, prepare for two hours of undiluted pleasure or, if not, then I suppose all the epithets along the lines of 'boring, derivative, banal, underwhelming tosh' are fully justified. Read on: if you are put off by the description that follows, maybe this film is not for you and I've done my job. If you enjoyed the first film in the series, or (as one of the uninitiated) these tantalising glimpses of high-tech goth makes it appeal, then read on - for the more you know about the mythology first the better (since the film itself wastes little time explaining itself).Underworld is a dark domain where age-old enmity between Vampires and Lycans (werewolves) is played out with terrifying fury. Normal people are fairly peripheral to the plot (vampires have emergency blood transfusion type supplies to save the need to attack humans). Both sides are...

1/10: Do yourself a favor and read the review! You can't get the 105 mins back nor your money

So very disappointing.Even with the various amounts of eye candy. Scott...delish. Kate... a tall drink of water. But even those lovely accouterments can not save this tragedy called a movie. Lord deliver us from terrible producers who can't recognize good writing and story development even if it hit them with a Mack Truck.Plot what plot. I couldn't even find an outline.U:E picks up right where the 1st one leaves off. Selene is struggling with the weight of the murder of an elder on her shoulders and Michael. However Michael is a weight we know she will carry gladly. However the hot, steamy, sexiness, is not enough to justify seeing this movie. With obvious, pathetic, and cliché plot twists and worse; cliff hangers with no meaning or use; this movie if you can call it that falls flat on its face and then gags its self when its too stupid to realize that you...

8/10: This is how you make a sequel
Friday, January 20, 2006

Feel free to dismiss any reviewer that immediately admits to disliking Underworld and then claims that Underworld: Evolution is "just as bad" as the original. Does it really surprise anybody that this is a movie for people who enjoyed the original? Didn't like the first one? Then why subject yourself to a follow-up that you expect to equally loathe? You have no one to blame but yourself if you spend your time or money on it. That being said...This is how you make a sequel! I'll gladly admit it - I'm a fan of Underworld. I own it on DVD. Yes, Kate Beckinsale in leather has a lot to do with it. If she were at the local library decked out in leather and reading from the phone book then I'd gladly pay $8 to attend. But the movie has more going for it than just the hot babe factor. The style, story, and stunts...

1/10: This movie was extremely LAME
Sunday, January 22, 2006

This movie was lame and very laughable. I went to see it with a bunch of my friends, all of who are fans of the original one. There are so many reasons that this movie sucked that I forget more than half of them. I forget most of the plot holes, inconsistencies to the first movie, and random crap that was randomly put into this movie just to try to give some importance to everything but was too important but some how forgot to be mentioned in the first movie.First of all, the sex scene? That was random, stupid and I almost burst out laughing. Not only was it a random and unneeded scene, used just to make little teenies be like "OOH NAKED!!", but in addition to that...The positioning of their bodys?? Do they really expect us to believe that he's having sex with her?? Well, not unless he's having sex with her bellybutton! Speaking...

1/10: A big disappointment for a fan of the first movie
Thursday, January 26, 2006

As a fan of the first movie, this was a absolute and utter disappointment. I was skeptical when I first heard about a sequel, and now it seems that when Kevin Grevioux disappeared from the project without any form of explanation, so went all the chances it had of being good. I truly wanted to enjoy this movie, and envy those who can, but there were just too many faults here for me to look past. The plot is first of all much too rushed, and if you haven't watched the first movie, it is hard to grasp, despite all the flash backs, that are quite clumsily conveyed here. The characterization of Selene takes a 180 degree turn, and not for the better. When she in the first movie was portrayed as a cold and efficient warrior, she here seems more like a female version of Lethal Weapon's Martin Riggs. She is also in the true spirit of...
