Product Description

Thriller sequel starring Kate Beckinsale. In the Underworld, Vampires are a secret clan of modern aristocratic sophisticates whose mortal enemies are the Lycans (werewolves), a shrewd gang of street thugs who prowl the city's underbelly. No one knows the origin of their bitter blood feud, but the balance of power between them turns even bloodier when a beautiful young Vampire warrior and a newly-turned Lycan with a mysterious past fall in love.

From Amazon.co.uk

Better action, a bit of sex, and gorier R-rated violence make Underworld: Evolution a reasonably satisfying sequel to 2003's surprise hit Underworld. Looking stunning as ever in her black leather battle gear, Kate Beckinsale is every goth guy's fantasy as Selene, the vampire "death dealer" who's now fighting to stop the release of the original "Lycan" werewolf, William (Brian Steele) from the prison that's held him for centuries. As we learn from the film's action-packed prologue, William and his brother Marcus (Tony Curran) began the bloodline of vampires and werewolves, and after witnessing centuries of warfare between them, their immortal father Corvinus (Derek Jacobi) now seeks Selene and the human vampire/lycan hybrid Michael (Scott Speedman) to put an end to the war perpetuated by Victor (Bill Nighy), the vampire warrior whose betrayal of Selene turns Underworld: Evolution into an epic tale of familial revenge. This ambitious attempt at Shakespearean horror is compromised by a script (by Danny McBride and returning director Len Wiseman, Beckinsale's real-life husband) that's more confusing than it needs to be, with too many characters and not enough storytelling detail to flesh them all out. Aspiring to greatness and falling well short of that goal, Underworld: Evolution succeeds instead as a full-throttle action/horror thriller, with enough swordplay, gunplay, and CGI monsters to justify the continuation of the Underworld franchise. If you're an established fan, this is a must-see movie; if not, well... at least it's better than Van Helsing! --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but confusing at first ! 4 Jan 2007
Format:DVD
Sexy, leather clad Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and hybrid Michael (Scott Speedman) return in the second instalment and epic conclusion of the Underworld saga.

Whilst I have never pretend to be the smartest tooth in a vampires mouth I certainly feel that I am not the dullest, but for the first third of this movie I was beginning to get totally bemused as to what exactly was going on, who was who, and whom had allegiance to whom. But I do urge the viewer of this film to stick with it, as all those questions and internal confusion in the back of your mind are all answered remarkably well before the end of the movie. However I get the feeling that those of you with the mind of a `Frankenstien's monster' will either turn it off in utter bewilderment, or just sit there open mouthed through the gore fest.

The main plot of the sequel answers many unanswered questions, and introduces a host of new characters implied or mentioned only in brief in the first movie. Marcus (Tony Curren) has risen from his sleep - if you remember the blood dripping into his tomb within the vaults of the Great Mansion at the end of the last - and sets out to find his brother William, the original werewolf. But first he has to get hold of the two-part key to the prison in which William has been imprisoned, one part of which is held by our heroine Selene and the other by a mysterious figure with his own small militia - who turns out to be none other than Alexander (Derek Jacobi), the father to both Marcus and William.

As well as a lot of history being revealed and graphically shot at the start of the movie , Bill Nighy also returns as Victor, and the real reasons for him leaving Selene alive after slaughtering her family become more evident as the movie goes on.

5.0 out of 5 stars A kick booty movie 16 April 2006
Format:DVD
I thought this film was ace when i first saw it at the cinema. if you like lots of fighting, some blood sucking and a little romance then this is the movie for you. if you haven't seen the first movie titled underworld, then watch it before you watch this. Selene and micheal are back for some more action and adventure. the film carries on 24hours after the first one left off with the death of viktor and the repercussions of that night. this movie however delves into the origins of the vampires and lycans and why they are at war and where they come from. it really is a good movie and i would recomend it to anyone who loves vampire movies.

"Underworld: evolution" is the sequel to "Underworld", the supernatural thriller regarding an old feud between vampires and lycans, and as such is more of the same. By that, I mean uncomplicated fun for those who from time to time enjoy watching a fast paced film that has elements of fantasy in it, and that lacks food for thought but makes up for that with lots of entertainment value.

Are you, like me, one of those people I mentioned above? If the answer is no, do not lose your time, this film is probably not the right one for you. If the answer is yes, I recommend you watch this movie, but only after having enjoyed the first one.

Now I am going to talk a little about the plot of "Underworld: evolution", so if you still have to watch the first movie in the series stop reading now, in order to avoid spoilers. The plot of this sequels picks up where the last one left off, and does an excellent job of allowing us to catch up with Selene (Kate Beckinsale), the beautiful vampire death-dealer, and Michael (Scott Speedman), the young lycan she has feelings for. Michael was turned by Selene into a hybrid of lycan and vampire in order to be saved from certain death, but that act of defiance and the fact that Selene killed an ancient vampire ruler to protect Michael, means that they are both on the run.

But what exactly has Michael turned into, and will they be able to survive? And what will happen when Marcus (Tony Curran), another of the vampire elders, turns into a hybrid of a different kind, and finally achieves the power to free his dangerous brother, William (Brian Steele)? Things become even more complicated when we find out that Marcus was the father of all vampires, as William was the father of all lycans.

3.0 out of 5 stars "We are oddities of nature" 14 Feb 2009
By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The film starts with a stunning epic-style prologue showing the origins of the Lycan-Vampire battle. We see werewolf metamorphoses, and they are jerky like an old-school horror film stop-motion - and that's a good thing! You can almost feel the bone structure cracking and snapping into place, it feels much more eerie than the overly smooth transitions you normally see these days.

An introductory narrative by Selene means that you don't have to have seen the first film to enjoy this one - but it would probably help as this sequel is set straight after the first one.

Underworld and Underworld Evolution make a good job of creating a believable structure for vampires to exist in, an underground society with high-tech equipment and full coffers to ensure that they can exist with a more than comfortable lifestyle whilst not having to expose themselves to 'normal' folk. This means that you don't find yourself watching this thinking that it's a load of implausible tripe - you get a feel of the intrigue and the centuries of tradition and legend that the vampires live by.

These years of blind acceptance of the hierarchy are challenged when Selene, on the run with vampire-werewolf hybrid and lover Michael, start to unravel the true history of their race. They stumble into an adventure to prevent the original werewolf from being released by his vampire brother - sound confusing? Well if you haven't seen the first film then don't worry - as the plot progresses it more sense, especially when key characters from vampire history happen to make convenient appearances!

Not quite as stylish as the first film, and if you thought the first film contained action and gore just for the sake of it then you might not like this one.
