An Honest Review

First off I have to say that the first Underworld has to be among my top 3 movies ever.

This one, however isn't. Don't get me wrong, this is a good movie, it just doesn't have the same great vibes and story like the first one.

Things I loved about the film is that it really is a good continuation from the first, and the fact that its a continuation of a film I love just makes it worth while.

Things I had problems with though is that they changed the look, slightly, of the Lycans. In the first one it was actual people walking around in suits, and it looked great. . In this one, they totally look computer animated, they moved different, they seemed more flexible, the way they morphed looked different as well. . they were also much faster, and slightly smaller.

I also had a problem with how they changed the action. In the first one, if someone got hit, they would have a more natural look. . In this one, if someone gets hit, they fly 10 feet in the air and crash through walls. . it all seemed to 'Matrix' and less 'Underworld.'

Things just looked exaggerated, (SPOILERS) Like when a character is decapitated his head rather explodes and blood and guts fly everywhere, whereas in the first one, it simply fell off.

If you can get over the few changes in the look and feel of the film, and if you are a fan of the first, this is a great movie. .

Just do not go into this film expecting Underworld 1.

The Last Hope Left

Selene (Kate Beckinsale) wishes to expose the truth about the death of Viktor to the first true vampire Marcus (Tony Curran) that is hibernating. However, Marcus has already awakened and wants to release his savage Lycan brother William (Brian Steele), who has been imprisoned for centuries. When Marcus tries to get the medal possessed by Lucian from the hybrid Michael (Scott Speedman), Selene decides to visit Andreas Tanis (Steven Mackintosh), the exiled official historian of the covens, to understand his interest. When Selene and Michael meet Tanis, they disclose the truth about their bloodlines, and later with the support of Alexander Corvinus (Sir Derek Jacobi), Selene faces the powerful and evil Marcus as the last hope left for the mankind.

It is very difficult to see good sequels, but "Underworld – Evolution" gave me the sensation that together with "Underworld", they are one good movie split in two parts. The viewers like me that enjoyed "Underworld" will certainly like this sequel very much. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Anjos da Noite – A Evolução" ("Angels of the Night - The Evolution")

Note; On 28 January 2017, I saw this film again.

This movie will satisfy its target audience, guaranteed

Let's face it. If you're going to see this movie, you probably enjoyed the original and are looking for more. You want high doses of fight scenes, vampire and lycan lore, blood, violence, and Kate Beckinsale wearing leather or less. In short, this movie delivers all of the above in great excess, so if you liked Underworld, you're going to like Underworld: Evolution as much or more.

On the other hand, if you don't like blood, violence, action, mythology, or using a sword in a world full of guns, this movie is not for you, and it's NOT MEANT to be for you, so don't complain about it.

This movie surpasses the original as far as story development. We learn a good bit about each character's past, which helps justify all the extreme violence they engage themselves in. We're also introduced to some new characters and plot lines that add interest and new twists, rather than just rehashing all the familiar faces from Underworld.

This movie fails to get a 10 rating from me for the following reasons:

1) Not quite enough "stuff" to fill the time. Too many shots of Kate Beckinsale "looking intense". The movie could have been 10 minutes shorter if the number of these shots had been reduced from seemingly infinite down to 10 or so. Minor problem.

2) A few glaring continuity errors.

3) Too many flashback/explanation shots from the original Underworld. I suppose this is necessary so as not to alienate viewers who didn't see the original or who forgot it. However, this movie is obviously targeted to people who liked the original and want more, so give us a quick refresher and then hit us with new stuff. No need to keep providing Cliff's notes throughout the movie. Make us think a little!

4) There wasn't a standout power move comparable to the spinning/shooting through the floor in the original Underworld. Let's face it, half the people that went to that movie did so because that shot was in the trailer. This movie had lots of power moves, but none that stood out as the winner.
