Format:DVD
The previous installments in the Underworld franchise have been excellent, vastly entertaining, action packed and imaginative. Though this series is constantly being slated by critics it remains ever popular and from this latest installment its easy to see why. Kate Beckinsale returns for a fourth time and slips back into that leather suit as if she's never even taken it off. This time round the writers have decided to reduce the mythology aspect of the films (a shame) and have instead focused on kicking off a whole new era to the Underworld series set in the future real world. Perhaps this change of period and world is what makes this installment somewhat weaker than its predecessors. There is a defenite lack of character and the film is so short (just an hour and fifteen minutes) that there is barely enough time to develop any sort of understanding of the characters. Kate Beckinsale is awesome as Selene and Charles Dance has fun in a very Bill Nighy like role. As for the rest of the cast they are very much forgettable.
The direction is stylish, the action scenes well staged and the visuals, whilst somewhat weaker than previous installments, are good enough.
Overall this film is nowhere near as good as Underworld and Underworld Evolution and seems way to rushed and short. It feels more like the first hour or so of a film and then it just ends, perhaps paving the way for inevitable sequels. If you're a fan of the franchise, don't miss it, this film is cool and action packed but the lycans are vastly underused, as are the vampires and without the myhtology and the otherworldly setting of the previous three its a very different Underworld.
This is a two disc edition with some great features. Severeal featurettes, a commentary etc. Worthwhile if you're a fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same 17 Feb 2012
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Underworld: Awakening is the fourth instalment in the Underworld series. It follows on neatly from the last, showing us a world where humans successfully hunt & suppress Vampires & Lycan populations - officially the word is that Lycans are extinct and vampires are pretty much wiped out. Waking up from cryo-stasis-type-deal, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) has been out cold for 12 years and the world has changed into an authoritarian state (think Libria from Equilibrium) but, thanks to the Corvinus strain, she is plagued by visions from another's eyes - Subject 2 - her liberator with whom she shares a unique connection.

The Lycans want Subject 2 at any cost, will Selene manage to keep her safe from them and work out why she is so important?

Firstly, if you are not familiar with the Underworld Trilogy then this probably isn't the best place to start - despite being the highest budget ($70m) and highest grossing ($131m) of the quartet. For those familiar with the concept, you know the drill by now; guns, leather coats, spandex, blood-drinking and overly-muscled wolves.

Secondly, this film seems to have been written around the wardrobe department. We see Selene wake up from a secure 12-year-long-stasis and her clothes are right next to her chamber. Did they decide to keep them there just in case she woke up and needed to escape in a rush?? She falls to the floor in a fog of liquid nitrogen that allows her to assume the most glamour-model position possible as she lays on the floor.

4.0 out of 5 stars She's back! 16 May 2012
By Mr. R. W. Graham VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
The fourth film in the Underworld series really is for fans only and by now you either are a fan or you're not. If you are a fan there's plenty to enjoy here in this very silly very trashy film. Underworld Rise Of The Lycans, the third film was a prequel showing how the war between the vampires and werewolves started and Kate Beckinsale's Selene was only in a short scene at the start and end of the film so this takes place after the second film. Humans are now aware of the existence of the war between vampires and werewolves and are hunting both sides. Selene now has a daughter that is being experimented on in a lab run by government agents lead by Stephen Rea and there is a new vampire king played by Charles Dance while Selena's lover Michael is missing. Some excellent action scenes and a good cast keep it all watchable and fun just don't take any of it seriously and you should enjoy. If you have never seen the first three films you can easily keep up with the plot and this is the best in the series since the original film. A fifth film is inevitable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings 15 May 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I had not seen this one announced so it was quite a surprise to find it on sale. As a fan of the movie series, and of course a leather-clad Kate Beckinsale, I didn't hesitate in buying this on Blu-Ray.
I write this review of the 2D movie as I don't bother with 3D despite having the equipment to watch it. That's just too much effort on the eyes after about ten minutes, I feel.
The Blu-Ray picture quality is excellent and the 7.1 channels of DTS HD surround fill my cinema with sound. Kate is superb as are the action sequences and there is some brilliant acting. I really liked the story of the hibrid child and Selene's incredible power is really displayed well in her attempts to protect her although I would like to have seen that idea expanded. The super-lycen provides suitable competition but the movie is also lacking something that it desperately needed: The nasty Victor of Bill Nighy! Other negatives are that it was too short and had an anti-climax of a finish (for me) setting it up for a definite 5th movie in the series. As a return to the "officialdom" of the first and second movies I would have expected more - certainly a proper Victor and a proper Michael - but I'm still glad I watched it and I will enjoy watching it again. Note to producers: Must Try Harder for what must, surely, be your final 5th movie!
