Better action, a bit of sex, and gorier R-rated violence make Underworld: Evolution a reasonably satisfying sequel to 2003s surprise hit Underworld. Looking stunning as ever in her black leather battle gear, Kate Beckinsale is every goth guys fantasy as Selene, the vampire death dealer whos now fighting to stop the release of the original Lycan werewolf, William (Brian Steele) from the prison thats held him for centuries. As we learn from the films action-packed prologue, William and his brother Marcus (Tony Curran) began the bloodline of vampires and werewolves, and after witnessing centuries of warfare between them, their immortal father Corvinus (Derek Jacobi) now seeks Selene and the human vampirelycan hybrid Michael (Scott Speedman) to put an end to the war perpetuated by Victor (Bill Nighy), the vampire warrior whose betrayal of Selene turns Underworld: Evolution into an epic tale of familial revenge. This ambitious attempt at Shakespearean horror is compromised by a script (by Danny McBride and returning director Len Wiseman, Beckinsales real-life husband) thats more confusing than it needs to be, with too many characters and not enough storytelling detail to flesh them all out. Aspiring to greatness and falling well short of that goal, Underworld: Evolution succeeds instead as a full-throttle actionhorror thriller, with enough swordplay, gunplay, and CGI monsters to justify the continuation of the Underworld franchise. If youre an established fan, this is a must-see movie; if not, well. . . at least its better than Van Helsing!
