Underworld: Evolution

Underworld: Evolution was a bit different from the first movie. This film was able to delve deeper into a more complex story. Whereas, the first Underworld had to introduce all the characters so the story couldn’t be as deep.

I had my doubts as to how the second movie would hold up against something as new and fresh as the first one. But I wasn’t disappointed. The action was even more intense, the scenes a little a more gory. The special effects were great (especially, on such a small budget), with bigger, badder monsters this time around. We get more of a back-story on the original vampire and werewolf. And we get to see Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and Michael’s (Scott Speedman) relationship develop further. Though there wasn’t a lot of talking in the movie other than Selene’s narration, the acting was exceptional as well. Specifically, Marcus, played by Tony Curran, was a wonderfully, complex tortured-soul. I love when you can somewhat sympathize with the villains. It makes them much more believable than just soulless monsters.

This movie was quite a bit darker, but just as fun as the original.

One thought on “Underworld: Evolution”

  1. Not a perfect movie by any means, still a lot of things unexplained, but the action was great and I loved the whole ‘colour’ of the movie, the stark ultraviolet sort of hue. Of course, it was good to look at Kate in her leather outfit again and wish i could look that good! 🙂
