Tribes of vampires and werewolves battle for supremacy among the undead in this follow-up to the horror hit Underworld. Tracing the bloody history of the ongoing war between the Death Dealers, a gang of upper-crust vampires, and the Lycans, a pack of scruffy werewolves, Underworld: Evolution finds beautiful Death Dealer Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and hunky Lycan Michael (Scott Speedman) exploring their own pasts as well as those of their comrades in hope of uncovering the secrets of this centuries-old conflict. As Selene and Michael deal with their bloody legacy as well as their forbidden romance, the violence between the Death Dealers and the Lycans escalates in what may be the final face-off between them. Directed by Len Wiseman, who also helmed the first film, Underworld: Evolution also stars Shane Brolly, Bill Nighy, Tony Curran, and Derek Jacobi.~Mark Deming

Underworld Evolution is by far, my favorite Underworld movie. 2nd in the series, this movie delivers more than the first, builds upon it, and successfully outdid its predecessor. The other titles are good but not excellent. Other titles in the same genre. I feel cannot hold a candle to this movie. It is action-packed, romantic, horrifying, and thrilling.
I like the story's flow in the first two installments to the saga very much. I got this movie awhile back, but could not find it at the time...so I got It again.
I like the back story and build of characters. The first two installments to this saga I think are the most thought out and important parts to the saga made...as each film after retraces back to these two first installments for reasons in the aftermath.
Under cover of night, vampires engage in an age-old battle with their sworn enemies, the Lycans, a clan of violent werewolves. Selene (Kate Beckinsale), a vampire orphaned in the wake of a bloody Lycan attack, works for the vampire clan as a trained killer. When the Lycans take a mysterious interest in Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman), an exceptional mortal doctor, Selene struggles to save him from Lucian (Michael Sheen), a ruthless Lycan leader hellbent on ending the vampire bloodline.
Better than Twilight.
