Underworld: Evolution (2006)

underworld_evolution

Continuing directly from the first film, Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman are on the run from the first vampire, a virtually unkillable uber-vamp who wants to unleash his twin brother and uber-wolf on the world.

Let’s face it, the plot to this film is all a bit irrelevant really. It’s all about flashy visuals and non-stop action to the point where it resembles a stylish video game. It contains so much eye candy that it makes the teeth hurt and the action is pretty much non-stop to the point where characters were introduced and immediately killed off once they’d served their purpose. But I did like it’s unpretentious, no-nonsense approach that lacked the self-absorbed pomposity that marred the first film and the action is far more entertaining and less overly stylised. It is of course just another Matrix rip-off but I actually enjoyed it rather more than I did Reloaded, as well as the original Underworld for that matter.

Okay if you’re in the mood for some mindless action but it’s still not as good as Blade or Blade 2. It’s a lot better than Blade Trinity however.
