    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # 15381 )

    Plot
      Tribes of vampires and werewolves battle for supremacy among the undead in this follow-up to the horror hit Underworld. Tracing the bloody history of the ongoing war between the Death Dealers, a gang of upper-crust vampires, and the Lycans, a pack of scruffy werewolves, Underworld: Evolution finds beautiful Death Dealer Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and hunky Lycan Michael (Scott Speedman) exploring their own pasts as well as those of their comrades in hope of uncovering the secrets of this centuries-old conflict. As Selene and Michael deal with their bloody legacy as well as their forbidden romance, the violence between the Death Dealers and the Lycans escalates in what may be the final face-off between them. Directed by Len Wiseman, who also helmed the first film, Underworld: Evolution also stars Shane Brolly, Bill Nighy, Tony Curran, and Derek Jacobi. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Review

        Audiences that fed into its predecessor's mix of horror and exploitive double-gun action will be pleased with Underworld: Evolution, a pulpy sequel that soberly soaks in its own mythology while delivering a less derivative retread of the pop-cinema imagery that critically killed the first film. No doubt about it, the picture is still a latex lover's dream, but at least there's a bit more of the monsters this time around to balance the genre-bending cocktail. As was the first film's strength, the best thing here is the story, which continues to expand the better-than-average underworld folklore. Also impressive are the creature effects, which have been given a well-needed overhaul from the hyena-like werewolf wannabes of the first film. Kate Beckinsale once again shoulders the goth dramatics efficiently, with a brief flashback appearance by Bill Nighy stealing the show in just the few minutes that open the film. There are still plenty of silly questions left to be answered, the biggest being why Beckinsale's character inherited special powers in the final reel only to fall back on gun theatrics in the big showdown -- then again, maybe that's to be expected in an Underworld movie. These flicks aren't solid gold, but they are stylized distractions that the masses can easily eat up. And if that means big monster shoot-outs, then so be it. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
