CORPORATE LINE: As the war between vampires and werewolves rages on, the legacy of both races is revealed. The personal histories of Selene, the vampire warrior, and Viktor, the father of modern-day vampires, are also revealed.
THE REVIEW: Underworld: Evolution gets caught in the muck of a story that never works. Evolution flashes back to the original too much and relies too heavily on coping successful films such as the Matrix and Blade. Even when Evolution turns on its male viewers it turns them off with a movie that is nearly impossible to get invest in.
The only plus has to do with the look of Evolution. The monsters are amazing. Marcus’s attacks are phenomenal. If only the entire film were this exciting and tense. Kate Beckinsale looks great and plays the part well—she sells a character that is in a movie that can’t sell itself.
FRANKLY: Underworld: Evolution is without soul. There is never a moment where Evolution doesn’t take itself too seriously.
