Underworld: Evolution

Rating: B-

While better than the first Underworld, this one doesn't quite cut it. There's more Kate Beckinsale in tight tight leather/vinyl/spandex/who cares she's really hot as Selene, the vampire who is still fighting the Lycans (werewolves). This time around, she's fighting not only the Lycans, but now she has to deal with an ancient vampire named Marcus, who is bent on winning the war and taking over the world.

The action is good. There is an abundence of blood and gore. Heads roll, arms go flying, and blood throughly coats well, everything. Selene again has her guns, but they aren't as effective against vampires as they were against the Lycans in the first one.

Selene travels around with Scott Speedman, her half-man, half-lycan boyfriend/pet trying to uncover the origins of she species and the conspiricy involved with them all. Sounds great, but it gets a little lost in the gun play and soft core sex, as it should be.
