After a one film hiatus, Kate Beckinsale returns as Selene in ‘Underworld: Awakening’. The films have spanned an alternative present, an alternative past and now in the form of ‘Awakening’, an alternative future. Selene wakes up to find herself in a society where the vampires and werewolves are known about, to the extent were humans have killed off most of them. She is deemed a curio to experiment on, until she escapes.

The ‘Underworld’ films always thrived when they have as much action as possible and this is the case again here. It is not the lycans who prove the biggest threat in the future, but humans with advanced technology. Therefore, some of the best action sequences have Selene go up against a group of humans with elite weaponry. Beckinsale still looks great and is somehow able to pack a realistic looking punch, in what looks a diminutive frame.

The issues with the film are that it is all over a little too quickly without exploring the wider implications of vampires in the future. It does appear that the franchise is looking to reboot and produce more films in the future, but that does not help the reduced running time of this outing. The brief glimpses you get of vampires in hiding and human corruption hint at a series of plots that have yet to payoff.

The film does not have the largest budget, but the special effects and lighting does mean that the BluRay is the way to go. There are plenty of fun behind the scene featurettes for people who want to delve a little deeper into how the film was made and the lore.

I loved this version of underworld. The story starts with humans finding out about Vampires and Werewolves (Lycens). Later you find out this might not have been an accident. With Humans in the majority and advances in technology the humans are on the verge of wiping out both species or so they think. Serine's family of hybrids are wanted for experimentation 12 years later Serine and her daughter escape, great Vamp vs. Wolf fight scenes ensue. Great action movie am I look forward to the next film.
