Buy it... if you delight in the dark atmospheric textures and rhythms of Marco Beltrami's trademark thriller/horror sound.

Avoid it... if you expect to hear some of the best score music from the film on this score album, despite its tediously long running-time.

Beltrami
Beltrami
Underworld Evolution: (Marco Beltrami) In the tale of the battle between vampires and werewolves, one thing is certain: it's long enough for a sequel or two. Fans of Underworld were the direct targets of the sequel, extending the story to include new villains and new battles while maintaining the same bleak atmosphere of the first film. For the mass majority of mainstream audiences, most of whom will only catch a glimpse of this film on midnight cable runs someday, the only notable aspect of the film is lead vampire Kate Beckinsale and her evil leather costume. Fans of such "cuteness gone bad" will be pleased to know that there's more nudity and sex in this film than the first, though be aware that there are so many special effects in Underworld Evolution that you can't assume that anything in the picture is actually real. The plotline in Underworld Evolution isn't as intriguing as the one in the first film, reducing the sequel to a series of chases intermingled with lengthy conversational explanations of background information that only devoted fans will bother paying attention to. For a number of reasons, mostly related to the concept of redundancy, the film was torn apart by critics, and for most people, the story ends there. But for film score collectors, the insertion of horror score veteran Marco Beltrami into the crew showed a glimpse of hope. The original film's score was a hardcore, no-nonsense industrial affair by Paul Haslinger, harshly dissonant and equaling the film's visuals in bleak tone. Ironically, there was something about the ballsy metallic sound of Haslinger's score that worked well with the urban environment of the film, and some of that overbearing personality has been lost in the sequel. Beltrami's approach to Underworld Evolution is far more conventional in an orchestral sense, following the lines of his plethora of previous efforts requiring a similarly dark atmosphere of brooding and chasing. There are stylistic traits from Hans Zimmer's recent rhythmic constructs that you'll recognize in several places. He did not overtly incorporate the themes or sound of Haslinger, though more will be said on matter later.
