Underworld: Evolution - Toimivan ja synkähkön esikoiselokuvansa, Underworldin, jälkeen ohjaaja Len Wiseman avioitui Kate Beckinsalen kanssa, mutta nyt hän on palannut takaisin ohjaajan pallille Undeworldin jatko-osan myötä.

Underworld: Evolution -

Eikä tämä edes näytä riittävän Wisemanille, sillä seuraavan Die Hard -elokuvan jälkeen mies aikoo näköjään ohjata kolmannen Underworldin. Ja mikäpä siinä ohjatessa, sillä Underworld: Evolution on ihan kelpo jatko-osa: tosin omine puutteineen. Totuuden nimessä on heti alkuun myönnettävä, että Underworld: Evolution on ensimmäistä osaa jonkin verran huonompi, eikä edes itseasiassa tuo aiheeseen oikeastaan mitään uutta: ihmissusia ja vampyyreita esiintyy elokuvassa jälleen kerran, pyssyt laulavat Hoosiannaa ja veri värjää miljöötä reippaissa turpajuhlissa, joissa mm. kaahataan rekalla ja räjäytetään laiva.
