Underworld: Evolution (**)

If you liked the first Underworld, chances are you'll get some enjoyment out of this one. But this definitely falls under the stereotype of most sequels. It's bigger, dumber, and louder, with lots more blood, and for some reason a bunch of flashbacks to the first film. Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman don't really have much to do here, and aren't on screen all that much. The special effects are pretty cheesy, and the cinematography is constantly obsessed with a bluish tint to everything. That being said, there are werewolves and vampires fighting with each other. If that's your cup of tea, then by all means, go. It wasn't enough for me. Underworld: Evolution wants to be cool and kick-ass, but it isn't.
