  • Underworld: Evolution [2006]
    Paul Murphy

    Unfairly maligned by the critics on its cinematic release, with the benefit of both an open mind and the replay luxury of DVD, this is in fact a wonderfully well-paced and enthralling film. Following on almost immediately from where the original Underworld left off, with a brief introductory voice-over from Vampire Selene [Kate Beckinsale] bridging the two and with a 10-minute "prequel" scene [pre by 800 years] fleshing out the back-story, the heroine and hero, the Wolf-Vampire hybrid Michael [Scott Speedman] are hounded by the recently-awakened Elder Vampire Marcus who is searching for a key to a mystery that Selene, unknowingly, possesses. From there on in, it"s pretty much non-stop action for the next 102 minutes, with the only real lull in the pace being the much-discussed nude love scene between Selene and Michael, although this is as tepid as one might expect given that the director Len Wiseman is also Mr Beckinsale (it is however revealing enough to show that, should she decide to make one, a Kate Beckinsale body work-out DVD would be a humungous best-seller). Less of an open battle than the first movie, which contained armies of both Vampires and Werewolves (reduced to one and a handful respectively here), this is more of a character-driven story, as the various strands of the plot come together to make the climactic battle scene. Quite what the esteemed critics found to gripe about with Underworld: Evolution is puzzling; the special effects are about the only weak link in the film, with most of the CGI creatures appearing ungainly and slightly Playstation-ish, and some of the supporting characters are somewhat watery (Shane Brolly in particular), while Derek Jacobi has a criminally under-developed role. But this remains a high-octane adventure, one that has "repeated viewing" stamped all over it, and, despite what the cynics say, for more reasons that the stunning Ms Beckinsale spending almost the entire movie dressed in skin-tight black leather. DVD extras include an amusing commentary by Wiseman and several technical crew, although regrettably Kate, whose voice is as well-toned as her body, is a no-show; a few interesting but brief features on the making of the movie and the storyline development; and the obligatory angst-rock music video. Nothing spectacular, and one does yearn for a blooper reel to alleviate the tone after the hurting and spurting, but this really is a minor quibble, and this, and its predecessor, remain the best Goth-flicks since The Crow.

    Excellent sequel to 2003's Underworld, in which the seductive vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and the hybrid Michael (Scott Speedman) go on the run from the newly awakened vampire elder, Marcus (Tony Curran).
    Aided by a secret organisation, run by an immortal named Alexander Corvinas (Sir Derek Jacobi), they get involved in a series of running battles as they attempt to stop Marcus from releasing his werewolf brother William.
    A very enjoyable, action packed sequal which is easily as good as the original. Kate Becksale in her skin-tight leather and PVC body suit certainly makes for captivating viewing!

    Before you let all the magazines tell you how terrible this film is, just give it a try yourself and you might be pleasantly surprised!
    You shouldnt really be expecting too much from this type of film anyway - just some good monsters, some good set-pieces and Beckinsale looking as good as she can. So it wont disappoint then....
    Refreshingly gory in places and well worth a 3rd installment I say - bring it on...

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.
