Underworld: Evolution

I was not a fan of the original Underworld film, it had Kate Beckinsale and that was more than enough reason for me to give it a watch. However, I came out of that film feeling highly dissatisfied, and feeling like my time had been severely wasted. Whatever the reason, it is clear that Len Wiseman’s films, including the Underworld franchise, consistently fail to deliver the thrills and excitement that moviegoers crave. Underworld Evolution is the topmost example of that, the weakest film in the franchise, and by far one of the weakest films with a decent budget.

Underworld: Evolution – the Movie Review

Underworld Evolution immerses us in a dark and thrilling world of vampires and werewolves, where Selene, a fiercely determined vampire warrior, and Michael, a half-vampire half-werewolf hybrid, are on a mission to unravel their enigmatic past. In their quest for truth, they stumble upon a diabolical conspiracy involving both species and a fearsome vampire elder who is hell-bent on eradicating all of their kind.

As they journey deeper into this treacherous world, they face perilous battles with menacing foes and confront the demons within themselves to unlock the secrets of their past and forge a path toward their future. Will they be able to save their people and bring an end to the ancient feud between vampires and werewolves?

The Story

Underworld Evolution is a cinematic fiasco of epic proportions, leaving audiences to question how such a poorly executed sequel was allowed to grace the silver screen. This disappointing follow-up lacks the depth and substance of its predecessor, failing to measure up to expectations and leaving a bitter taste in the mouth of any viewer brave enough to endure it.

The story plot of Underworld Evolution is a convoluted mess, haphazardly throwing together ideas with reckless abandon.

The writers seem to have pieced together a hodgepodge of disconnected ideas, leaving audiences struggling to find any sense of coherence. The pacing of the movie is akin to watching paint dry, with scenes that drag on and on, causing viewers to squirm in their seats with discomfort.

The script writing is lackluster and uninspired, failing to breathe life into the poorly defined characters. The dialogue quality is equally dismal, lacking any memorable or quotable lines. The film’s interactions between characters are about as engaging as watching grass grow, leaving viewers longing for a spark of creativity. The lack of style and creativity is painfully apparent, leaving audiences feeling like they’re watching a run-of-the-mill B movie that never quite manages to leave the shadows of its more successful predecessors.

The Characters

The performances of the cast in Underworld Evolution are lackluster, with no standout or memorable moments. Kate Beckinsale reprises her role as Selene, the vampire warrior, but fails to bring any emotional depth to the character. Scott Speedman, who plays Michael, the half-vampire half-werewolf hybrid, also appears to be phoning it in, with no real conviction or passion behind his portrayal of the character.

Tony Curran, who plays the villainous Marcus, the ancient vampire elder, is somewhat okay, but his performance is too over-the-top. The supporting cast, which includes actors such as Shane Brolly, Derek Jacobi, and Bill Nighy fail to make an impact with their performances.

The Visuals

The film’s lackluster color palette seems to suck the life out of each scene, with every frame feeling dull and uninspired. The lack of creative camera work and cinematography only amplifies this lack of energy, with each shot feeling flat and uninteresting.

The lack of visual depth and imagination makes it difficult for the film to engage the viewer on a visceral level, leaving a feeling of apathy toward the visuals. The film fails to utilize its supernatural elements to create a unique and mesmerizing world, which could have breathed life into the visuals and made them more captivating.

The Music

Composed by Marco Beltrami, the score fails to enhance the mood or atmosphere of the movie, feeling like a mere afterthought rather than an integral part of the film. The lack of memorable compositions makes it difficult for viewers to connect with the film, and it fails to add any emotional weight to the story. In the end, the music feels like a missed opportunity, with the potential to elevate the film left untapped.


After watching Underworld Evolution, I’m left with mixed feelings. The action scenes were definitely the highlight, but it’s unfortunate that the lackluster performances of the cast, uninspired visuals, and forgettable music detract from the overall experience.

It’s hard not to feel like something is missing from the film. Ultimately, I would say it’s a total miss, it doesn’t quite hit the mark on anything it tries to. Another film to add to the Len Wiseman collection of poorly directed action flicks.
