Kate Beckinsale returns to the Underworld film series for the fourth installment, which finds fierce vampire Selene (Beckinsale) escaping captivity and taking up arms against humans after mankind discovers the existence of vampires and lycans, and launches a massive war aimed at wiping out the creatures of the night. Stephen Rea and Michael Ealy co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Cashing in on the Twilight series, with a heavy dose of Matrix, this movie is like watching a video game. Just one superhuman feat after another, and a very dark background with no letup. It became a bore.
My wife and I have loved this franchise, and were excited to see this installment. Well, apparently we expected too much compared to the others. This 'version' lacked feeling, special effect, and character. The budget must have been very low this time around. The next one, if any, has a lot of making up to do. I can't believe the extreme positive reviews from others. I'm not saying this is a horrible movie, however it just doesn't compare in my opinion.
This movie should have been a sub-plot in next Underworld movie. There is not enough material here to sustain an entire movie. The "Awakening" is what happened to me after the movie ended and my husband nudged me and said,"come on you can finish your sleep upstairs".
I love all the Underworld movies and this one was no different. The action is the same in all the movies, with a few little added extras. They set it up good for another one, but I really hate it when they end a movie that way.
