Movie Review - Underworld Evolution

Underworld Evolution. Yeah, what could be hotter than Kate Beckinsale in leather with bright blue eyes? Not much if anything I know. Amazingly, even after making the hot wife watch the first movie the other night she didn't want to go see the highly anticipated sequel. I went with my friend Nate and one of his friends that just finished a tour of duty in Iraq as a Marine. The movie was awesome, it picked up right where the previous movie left off. When I say that, I don't mean that it's in line and makes sense, I mean that the opening scene that shows some background information ends, and the movie begins with Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman in the same clothes they were in at the end of the last movie. The new one is awesome. I loved it. It's a killer action flick that's a perfect sequel to the first movie. The movie opens in 1202 AD and adds some history to the first movie that wasn't there. I won't say much about it because I don't want to ruin it for anyone that hasn't seen it. I will say that Kate Beckinsale is hot...but that's a give...anyway...she's hot, and great in her follow up role as Selene the Death Dealer. Scott Speedman co-stars as the first hybrid Vampire/Lycan so I thought the movie would be mostly about him. It's actually about their story so it's still got the Blade meets Romeo and Juliet touch that the first one had. My only complaint is that they tease you with a mostly naked Kate Beckinsale. So I'll do the same...

The one on the left is one of my favorite Kate Beckinsale Pictures. The one on the right is an actual still from the movie. Seriously, don't tease us with a Kate Beckinsale nude scene. Either give us one or don't. I'm not an in between guy so hopefully her husband (writer and director) will put it in the unrated two pack that is sure to hit this summer. At any rate, the movie is fantastic. I think anyone that liked the first one, or is a fan of vampire movies, or just thinks Kate Beckinsale is hot, should see it. We're off to have some good Mexican and drink lots of Margarita's tonight so I hope everyone has a great weekend. Go see Underworld Evolution if you have the chance.


Now I have a movie to go to at the theatre. We still haven't seen King Kong however. I think that one's going to wait until video when I can get up and stop it if I want to.

Yeah Kate is hot. And I agree on your choice of pictures! :) See this is a movie that my wife will go to regardless of Hot Kate. She likes the vampire I won't need to do any convincing!

It's a good movie. Hopefully the unrated DVD version will be better but we'll see. I would imagine they'll start filming a third one for next year or the year after.

We saw it today, and we both really liked it. I kind of wish I'd rewatched the first one, but they did a pretty good job of recapping.

They really did, and I think they left the door open for a third one. Not sure where they'd go with it, but there is that possibility.
