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.

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.

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.

Okay, for those of you still wondering what Underworld is all about... it's about a war between gun-totting fit female vampires in tight clothes and big ugly werewolves. So, if you've seen any of the first ones and liked them. Then watch this. You'll like this too.

If, on the other hand, you think that women in spandex leaping off buildings while firing twin pistols at a monster that, deep down, you know has been added post production via computer is a pretty dumb premise - steer well clear.

Luckily, I enjoyed the first three and loved this one too.

Twelve years after Selene's last battle, humans have only gone and figured out that vamps and werewolves are real and hunted every last one of them down (apart from the ones they missed). Selene's been frozen in ice and studied, but, luckily, she gets woken up by... you'll have to watch the film and see. But, anyway, she's more than a little cranky and being prodded while in ice by humans in lab coats for over a decade. Luckily for her (and us I guess) she's defrosted right next to her famous black slinky costume and quickly puts it on and goes to express her disgust with humanity by a strongly-worded blog and some scathing tweets (only joking, she grabs the nearest knife and gun and starts piling up the bodies).

Oh, and it's 3D this time. My only gripe. The 3D was even more pointless than every other 3D film that's designed purely to make you spend more money.

From reading other reviews the general consensus is `more of the same.' And I can't add to that. It is. There's not a lot new here and some have criticised it for not adding to the overall story enough, but, what the hell, it's still fun and Kate Beckinsale is still gorgeous.
