Thus I was quite surprised when i actually enjoyed the film. I thought the special effects and set designs were very good. Kate looked fantastic and, generally, the acting wasn't too bad. The plot was fairly good in places and sucked in others with large holes.
I have found that when I see films that I'm expecting little from I am pleasently surprised. Underworld: Evolution certainly isn't an all-time great but it was an enjoyable 90+ minutes that kept my attention. I must say (again) how much I did like the special effects and also the way they handled the story. The film carries on directly from the place the first film finished.
I think it'll have a B- on the School Report card though. This is probably generous and tainted by the fact that my expectations were very low. I would be surprised if it'll end up on my Top Ten of 2006 but I wouldn't be surprised to see it in my DVD collection eventually.
Also, I finished reading 'Memoirs of a Geisha' last night (very good book) which probably means I'll be heading to see the film tomorrow afternoon. Also 'Munich' is released on Friday so I'll probably try and catch that early Saturday morning as it's one I've also been waiting for.
