Mortos

Underworld Evolution- quick non-ninja review

Cons: Some plot inconsistencies, story doesn't flow as well as the original, doesn't entirely keep with the rules established in the first movie, some people survive absurdly lethal stuff that should've killed them, a couple flagrant violations of very basic physics, too many flashbacks to the first movie to maintain plot integrity

Pros: Selene (Kate Beckinsale) gets naked, camera tends to linger on her fetishwear-clad ass and Fremen-blue eyes (in "vamp mode")

Yes, the movie has other things going for it, (great costumes, good fight scenes, great opening scene, makeup and CGI effects, etc. etc.) but it's pointless to even mention them in light of these staggering benefits. On these merits alone it's the best non-Whedon movie I've seen in a long time.

Did I mention that she gets naked? 8-)...
