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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
