Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

The features of the Underworld: Evolution DVD are pretty similar to the first Underworld DVD. Director Len Wiseman and his technical team combine for a commentary track that discusses how they "cheated" on Kate Beckinsale's action sequences, how they reused backgrounds from the first film to save money, and the difficulty of filming a love scene involving the director's wife. Over an hour of featurettes cover the story and the casting, visual effects (CGI, props, and miniatures), stunts, production design, music, and sound effects. Wiseman also mentions in his commentary that there are more bits and pieces of the story to reveal "if an extended edition [comes] out." Considering Underworld was released four times on DVD, another release of Underworld: Evolution would seem to be almost a foregone conclusion. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

As the war between the Death Dealers and the Lycans rages on, the vampiric Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and her werewolf hybrid lover, Michael (Scott Speedman), set out to uncover the origins of the centuries-long conflict, putting them up against an ancient bloodsucker obsessed with resurrecting his brother, the original Lycan. With Tony Curran, Derek Jacobi and Bill Nighy. 106 min. Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English, French; audio commentary; featurettes; music video. NOTE: This Title Is Out Of Print; Limit One Per Customer.

The start of the new year is usually pretty slow when it comes to big films. Most of the time its when films not deemed summer blockbuster or holiday season worthy get scheduled for release. Len Wiseman's Underworld: Evolution is a step up from most of the garbage and fillers that end up being shown in January. This sequel to the Kate Beckinsale's 2003 gothic-actioner continues where the first film left off but with the increase in budget and less of an introductory feel to the characters. The film ends up looking quite good with action sequences that tops the first film and actually provides a story that adds to the mythology created in the first one.

Right from the beginning with its vampire knights and rabid, peasant werewolves, Underworld: Evolution shows that the film will be more rollercoaster ride than a study in character and themes. This is a good thing and Wiseman doesn't try to deviate from this formula. He knows just exactly what his films trying to do and doesn't try to overanalyze the situations. The production design still has the European look to it from the sets and location (coincidentally set in Eastern Europe) to the costume and prop designs. The film also makes heavy use of blue-filters to give the film that industrial look. Sometimes the sequences even takes on the look of a crisp, black and white film when the action is set at night with minimal light.

The story continues the struggle between the vampire clans and the lycan rebels from the first film. This time around Selene and the lycan hybrid, Michael are hunted by both sides as they struggle to search for the answers to their questions about Viktor's (Selene's vampire primogenitor and one of the clan elders) betrayal of her trust and the shared past of both vampire and lycan clans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sequel...Critics are DEAD WRONG!!! January 27, 2006
Like some people I like to read reviews by critics before I go see a movie. As is usually the case with these so called critics, they are way off the mark with this movie. I guess they go into the movie expecting sir Anthony Hopkins to generate a great "Acting" performance as in Howard's End. Hey, this is a horror/action movie you idiots. Even some critics pointed there negativity on the movie being humorless. HUMORLESS? Last time I checked it wasn't a comedy either.

Many critics also claimed the story to be confusing. I guarantee you they didn't go back and watch the first movie to refresh their minds of the back-story. If the were to, they would see that the story flowed from the prior movie just fine. Critics!! They drive you crazy and unfortunately sometimes hold the fate of a movie in their hands. Thank god for sites like Amazon to get the word out that this is a very good movie.

Kate Beckinsale is the hottest vampiress there is for sure. The story for me made perfect sense as they have an earyly back-story revisited with the history of the sons of Corvinous (William-bitten by a wolf and Markus-bitten by a bat) that are the basis of this movie.

The special effects are convincing and that's all that matters to me. Nothing like Star Wars for sure, but good enough for this type of movie. And man is there a lot of blood....especially in the last scene. Fun stuff. Many actors return including cameos by Lucian, Kraven, Viktor, and a little more from Amelia. There really isn't a "war" between Lycans and vampires as in the previous movie. It's more a pesonal war between Selene(who discovers her real importance) and Markus( who was always defiant when it came to his brother William and he never liked Viktor much).

2.0 out of 5 stars Action packed with gore and nudity
On the plus it is action packed. On the downside there is gratuitous nudity and overrun with gore. If you are okay with that enjoy.

A question for the informed?
Well he always had a human form (as we saw in the flashbacks). He was born human (though with immortal blood) after all. That freaky bat form is what he got after drinking the lycan's blood, thus transforming himself into a hybrid (same thing that Michael is). The reason his and Michael's forms... Read more
