Movie Review: Underworld 2

I watched Underworld: Evolution the other night and I have to tell you…I liked it. Full of special effects, intriguing characters, and an engaging plot…this movie rocks.

It is the continuing saga of the epic war between vampires and Lycans (werewolves). Though there is plenty of “real time” drama unfolding, the story carefully laces in the history of why these two groups are at…er, each other’s throats. Secrets will be revealed and questions raised in the first movie will finally be answered.

Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is betrayed by her own people. Her only ally in this world is Michael (Scott Speedman), a hybrid (half vampire, half lycan) who is stronger than either species. Together, they will try to stop an ancient evil from being unleashed on the world.

This movie is action from the word go. Kate Beckinsale in a latex outfit alone was worth the cost of rental, but this movie has so much more to offer than hotties in provocative outfits. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes, vampires, werewolves, action, adventure, special effects or a combination of them all.

Rating: 5 Star.

so, does the werewolf/vampire hybrid have the same problem with excess body hair?

Nope, he's sleek only his skin turns to this off black looking color. Darker than charcoal, but not quit pitch black.

Loved that line "...er...at each other's throats."

Lime has a point. And do they suffer from hair balls?

Thanks, Bernita. As far as hair balls...I haven't heard that its a problem among lycans, but that may just be one of those little secrects the keep to themselves. :D
