Underworld: Evolution (2006)
Critic Consensus: A visual and aural assault on the senses, this vampire-werewolf sequel makes a lot of noise and features a heavy-handed, overly convoluted story.

Critic Reviews for Underworld: Evolution
Underworld films are a highly specialized taste, and those who've acquired it know who they are. Everyone else should give this one a wide berth.
The plot is so convoluted that missing even five minutes at a stretch won't make any difference in your comprehension of the story.
The digital critters look much better than in the first film, it's fun seeing Derek Jacobi and Bill Nighy vamp it up, and the sight of Kate in that suit makes it worth squinting through all the murk.
I can't even begin to divulge the storyline because it's mostly unfathomable.
Evolution's action sequences are as horribly bungled as its plot, resulting in a string of repetitive confrontations that feel toothless even by the last movie's standards.
Audience Reviews for Underworld: Evolution
"Underworld: Evolution" is just another generic sequel. It picks up right where "Underworld" ends, with Marcus(Tony Curran) awakening. Marcus then begins to hunt Selene(Kate Beckinsale) and her Lycon/Vampire hybrid lover Michael(Scott Speedman). There is some vampire vs werewolf action, but this is more of a vampire vs vampire movie. More action and gore(some actually very good gore scenes), and less story. There is some secrets revealed about their pasts, and the death of a couple key characters, but overall not an improvement over the first one. Sequels are rarely better, so it's not a big surprise that it comes up short. Still worth a watch if your a fan of the first one or horror movies, just keep expectations in check.
04/08/2011 (ONLINE) Super cool! Not many sequels can compliment their original films but this for me certainly did. Awesome stuff, vampires, werewolves and Michael the coolest hybrid. The action is there, the artistry looks fantastic the whole film is my kind of flick in this genre. Cool actors and a awesome lead actress to bring this story to life and giving me an exiting 2 hour break from reality. Watching this again has me swinging for the 4th installment and I cannot wait till I drench myself in another tale from the "Underworld".
