I went into Underworld: Evolution knowing I could not stay for it all. The only reason I went in the first place was that this film showed evidence of being quite popular among the youth. Sure enough, it was number one at the box office. More than half of all films available to the general public are rated R. And more than half of all moviegoers each week are non-adult. You do the math.

So, as the intercourse with nudity appeared (at 35 minutes) I decided that was a good time to leave. Besides, I had seen enough in my opinion to tell you what you as parents would likely want to know: gore; demon werewolves and vampires; death; carnage; torching bodies; massive gunfire to kill; demons eating others; graphic impalements to kill; more, much more. In just 35 minutes. The filmmakers present some of the finest makeup and technically advanced CGI visual effects ever seen, but really!

I suspect I'll hear about "You can't analyze a film unless the whole film is seen!" Under the CAP analysis model, any "message", "theme", "justification" or "good-guy heroics" do not affect the scoring, which is determined entirely by the behavior and imagery content. The content of the unseen part of a film cannot be affected by the content in the seen part and vice versa. A CAP analysis of a partial viewing is just as accurate for the portion viewed as it would be for the entire film if the entire film were analyzed. The objectivity of the CAP analysis model does not allow scoring compromise for any reason.

Note the distribution of the investigation area scores shown by the CAP thermometers:

Wanton Violence/Crime (W): 0
Impudence/Hate (I): 24
Sexual Immorality (S): 14
Drugs/Alcohol (D): 81
Offense to God (occultism, satanism, etc.) (O): 0
Murder/Suicide (M): 0

Sorting the investigation area scores in decreasing numerical score:

Wanton Violence/Crime (W): 0
Offense to God (occultism, satanism, etc.) (O): 0
Murder/Suicide (M): 0
Sexual Immorality (S): 14
Impudence/Hate (I): 24
Drugs/Alcohol (D): 81

Rather identifies the targeting of this film, dontchaknow? And this is just the first 35 minutes.

The listing in the Findings/Scoring section will tell you what your kids will see and hear in 35 minutes if they view this film.


If needed to focus or fortify, applicable text is underlined or bracketed [ ] or bold. If you wish to have full context available, the Blue Letter Bible is a convenient source. If you use the Blue Letter Bible, a new window will open. Close it to return here or use "Window" in your browser's menu bar to alternate between the CAP page and the Blue Letter Bible page.


Let the listing below suffice. It would take much too long to be able to afford gathering all the Scriptures applicable to the behavior and imagery in the 35 minutes of this film. But note in particular 1 Cor. 15:33, Col. 2:8, Ps. 12:8 and Jude 1:4 below.

***Selected Scriptures of Armour against the influence of the entertainment industry***
  • Ps. 12:8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men [e.g., create progressively vile/offensive entertainment with impunity and no consequences to younger and younger audiences every year when enough people continue to defend it, embrace it, pay for it, enjoy it, want it].
  • Col. 2:8 Beware lest any man [by his influence] spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
  • 1 Cor. 15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
  • Rom. 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
  • Jude 1:4 For there are certain men* crept in unawares [secretly slipped in among us], who were before of old ordained to this condemnation [whose condemnation was written about long ago], ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness [a license for immorality], and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. [*men: anthropos {anth'-ro-pos}, generic, a human being, whether male or female]
  • Matt. 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto [or for] one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto [or for] me.
  • Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Offend: skandalizo {skan-dal-id'-zo} - scandalize; to entice to sin; to cause a person to begin to distrust and desert one whom he ought to trust and obey; to cause to fall away. I suspect "offend" includes sexually abusing the little ones. "Little ones": mikros - little;, small of age; younger which can include at-home teens].
  • Ps. 119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me [let no sin rule over me].
  • John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
  • 1 Thess. 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. ["Evil" includes all things that are sinful.]


    As always, it is best to refer to the Findings/Scoring section -- the heart of the CAP analysis model -- for the most complete assessment possible of this movie.

    There are some in the entertainment industry who maintain that 1) violent programming is harmless because no studies exist that prove a connection between violent entertainment and aggressive behavior in children, and 2) young people know that television, movies, and video games are simply fantasy. Unfortunately, they are wrong on both accounts." And "Viewing violence may lead to real life violence." I applaud these associations for fortifying 1 Cor. 15:33. Read the rest of the story. From our more than eight years of study, I contend that other aberrant behaviors, attitudes, and expressions can be inserted in place of "violence" in that statement. Our Director - Child Psychology Support, a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist concurs. For example, "Viewing arrogance against fair authority may lead to your kids defying you in real life." Or "Viewing sex may lead to sex in real life." Likewise and especially with impudence, hate and foul language. I further contend that any positive behavior can be inserted in place of "violence" with the same chance or likelihood of being a behavior template for the observer; of being incorporated into the behavior mechanics and/or coping skills of the observer. In choosing your entertainment, please consider carefully the "rest of the story" and our findings.
