Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Underworld films are a highly specialized taste, and those who've acquired it know who they are. Everyone else should give this one a wide berth."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"I dare anyone to follow the plot, which manages, like some ill-baked meringue, to be both too light on the surface and too densely clotted underneath."
‑ Stephen Metcalf, Slate
"While it is still plagued by many of the same problems of the first film, Underworld: Evolution is generally an improvement over the original and an entertaining diversion."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"Overall, Underworld: Evolution is a vast improvement over its predecessor Underworld (2003), even if it generally suffers from the twin evils of stupidity and seriousness."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"This is one of the more maddening franchises going right now, because so much potential is being wasted by director Len Wiseman, who can't seem to get the formula right."
‑ Bob Grimm, Sacramento News & Review
"The plot is so convoluted that missing even five minutes at a stretch won't make any difference in your comprehension of the story."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"A monster chiller sequel that is visually spectacular but rather overburdened with story."
‑ David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Yes, I'll admit, it's better than the first film, but really not by much."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It never lives up to the potential of its premise about a centuries-old war between rival clans of vampires and werewolves."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"I'm thinking about hair color after just having seen an action-horror movie; that's a bad sign."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"I can't even begin to divulge the storyline because it's mostly unfathomable."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"There's nothing new under the sun -- or out of it -- as vampire movies go."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Nudity and excessive exposition accompany gore-infused visual f/x in this splashy modern Goth extravaganza."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"...the series continues to squander its undeniably irresistible premise of vampires and werewolves duking it out..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Not a lot to recommend this sequel."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
