This is a great special effect film,, HD shows of the transformation of human to vampire to werewolf and etc.
The fight scenes are very good, explosions, helicopter crashes, mortal visceral Kombat with vampire/ werewolves /guns etc.
My favourite bit is Bill Nighy in the 12th century as a Lord of the Realm vampire, the war of vampires and werewolves looks absolutely stunning. Action sequences are very slick( and there is alot of action), superb choreography. Bill Nighy, Derek Jacobi, the Marcus guy, and all the surrounding actors are great.
The only , and Only reason it does not get 5 stars, and not a classic is that Kate Beckinsdale ( the hot lead) and Scott Speedman are unconvincing lead actress and actor. Oh and its always night.
The story line is intricate , hence you can ignore their one expression faces.
good entertainment, better than Underworld, I look forward to Underworld 3
my ultimate vampire film is Blade 1 then Van Helsing, then this.
