Movie Summary

Director:
Len Wiseman
Released:
2006
Rating:
R
Underworld: Evolution, also known as Underworld 2, is the second film in the Underworld series of vampire and werewolf films directed by Len Wiseman and Patrick Tatopoulos. Underworld: Evolution is an immediate sequel to the first film, set on the following day and depicting the continuing events of the Vampire-Lycan war. The movie sees Kate Beckinsale reprise her role as the vampire Death Dealer Selene, and depicts her growing romantic relationship with the vampire, Lycan-hybrid Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman) as she attempts to awaken Markus Corvinus (Tony Curran), the last of the Vampire Elders. It quickly becomes clear, though, that Markus is unwilling to co-operate with Selene, and he becomes the main antagonist of the film. Through flashbacks, including the opening scene of the film in which the three vampire elders capture the werewolf William Corvinus (Brian Steele) in the year 1202 AD, Underworld: Evolution reveals more of Selene's background, and that of the Vampire-Lycan war.
