      Released in 2006, Underworld Evolution is the much-awaited sequel to Underworld (2003). The movie continues with the style of the previous movie as it opens with a narration from Selene (Kate Beckinsale), who recaps the events that transpired in Underworld.

      Recap of Underworld: Kraven (Shane Brolly), leader of the vampires, forms a secret alliance with the lycans’ (warewolves) leader, Lucian (Michael Sheen), who is supposed to be long dead. Wanting to strengthen their line, the lycans use Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman), a direct descendant of Alexander Corvinus, the source of both vampires and lycans. Corwin is bitten and becomes a lycan himself, but not before Selene bites him, making him a very powerful Hybrid. The movie ends with Selene beheading Viktor (one of the elder vampires) for betraying her.

      Notes on History: Alexander Corvinus has two sons: William who was bitten by a warewolf and is the father of all lycans, and Marcus who was


      bitten by a vampire and is the source of all vampires. While he is a lycan, William is very wild and kills many people, so Viktor and the other elders decide to lock him up in a prison far away.

      Underworld Evolution: Selene and Michael flee from Kraven and hides in a safehouse. Unfortunately, Marcus, awakened by the blood of a lycan, has already killed Kraven and the rest of the vampires. With Viktor also gone, he is determined to free his brother which is why he has to find the key, which is with Selene and Michael. There are many fight scenes in this sequel, which would probably delight many male viewers. Most of the scenes are rather gory compared to the first instalment, but it was nevertheless exciting. When Selene and Michael meet up with Lorenz Marco, who is also Alexander Corvinus, Marcus attacks them and kills Michael. He takes both ...


      • of the keys-one from Selene and the other from his father– and by drinking Selene’s blood, learns of where his brother’s prison is. In order to stop him, Corvinus makes Selene drink his blood for her to become “the future.”

        A long and bloody fight scene ensures inside the cave. Selene is able to trap Marcus behind a barrier of stone, so she fights with William but is unable to really kill him. Corvinus’ men, who came with Selene are all bitten and turn into warewolves. Marcus is also able to escape from the barrier after finding an opening left by a loose stone, but just when it seemed that the heroine would die, Michael’s heart begins to beat again (hybrids are special) and comes to help Selene. In the end, Michael beheads William while Selene pushes Marcus into the blades of the helicopter.

        I really enjoyed this movie which was again directed by

        Len Wiseman. It provides a very good explanation as to why the events in the Underworld transpired and also gives the movie a beautiful ending. I liked that many secrets were revealed and things were less vague as compared to the Underworld. Furthermore, the feud between the warewolves and lycans comes to end in this movie, although with a third sequel coming out in 2009 we don’t really know what’s in store for Selene and Michael.

        One of the things I liked in the movie apart from the story is the action-packed fight scenes. Marcus’ bat costume gave him a weapon that he can use to easily overpower all of his enemies, but Selene’s high-tech guns and explosives also proved to be effective in slowing down Marcus. I think fans of the Underworld would really enjoy this movie, if not more. If you haven’t seen both, then I suggest you find a DVD soon!
