Utterly Superb!
Kate Beckinsale is back in the tight leather as Selene, one of the darkest and coolest female action heroes with the full action package: she has slick fighting and shooting skills, a total bad-ass edge and that sexy British accent! For fans of the series this 4th instalment is a great comeback, it's short, sharp and solid, and it features the best performances seen in the whole franchise. Better yet is the excellent 3D, some may turn away from the conversion as they may think the darkness will dampen the effect but it's brilliant, throwing weapons and guns soar out the screen and the sense of depth is hugely effective, and looks best when inside the Antigen laboratories. I am jaw dropped even after many repeat viewings, definitely a must watch in 3D. The story is stronger than all the previous Underworld films, and there's a great theme of family amongst the blazing action and gore. Kate Beckinsale, Theo James, Stephen Rea, India Eisley, Sandrine Holt, Charles Dance and Kris Holden-Reid are an amazing cast with style, this is how Underworld should be: dark, stylish yet violent and explosive, this is the best in the franchise.

Could have been better
I saw in 'Real 3D' and to be honest it was pretty good but it could have been so much better. The emphasis was more on special effects not the story but somehow they managed to pull it of. I expected so much more from Eve 'who has more power than all of us together'. What power, I hardly saw any. I was terribly disappointed that Bill Nighy was not in it. Yes I know, Victor lost half of his head and all that but if Sigourney could have been cloned from a drop of blood in Alien III then why not Victor? Bill was for me what made Underworld so great, shame he was not part of the latest instalment. For me personally Underworld does not work that well in well lit urban areas as the edge gets taken away which is why I loved Underworld Evolution. Overall, a very good effort. Looking forward to next instalment and for the love of God bring Victor back.

It was okay, I guess...
2012's "Underworld: Awakening" is probably the most underwhelming entry in the decade-old-and-counting horror/fantasy "Underworld" franchise. The first "Underworld" (2003) had an interesting premise that played on long-established werewolf and vampire mythology, and "Underworld: Evolution" (2006) was a worthy continuation of the first film's story. The prequel "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" (2009) has so far been unseen by me, and tonight I finally got the chance to see "Underworld: Awakening."

When I say that this film is underwhelming, I mean that it really doesn't offer anything new, except for really big action sequences and questionable special effects - which says a lot for a movie that cost an estimated $70 million to make. And Kate Beckinsale, as vampire "death dealer" Selene, is fantastic to look at in black leather and kicking a** all over the screen.

The film's plot is really all over the place, and posits that baseline humanity has since learned of the existence of rival vampire and werewolf clans, and has enacted campaigns to exterminate both species. Selene is caught in the middle of all this, and she is captured and cryogenically frozen for 12 years. She soon escapes to go and find her vampire/werewolf-hybrid lover Michael (Scott Speedman, in archive footage). But Selene isn't alone: she has a human cop named Sebastian (Michael Ealy) and a fellow vampire named David (Theo James) helping her out, and the mysterious child Eve (India Eisley) who also holds a secret that may have the future of both the vampire and werewolf clans at her disposal.

"Underworld: Awakening" is clearly the low point in the series, as directed by Marlind & Stein, who pump up the action and gory violence but leave out plot and characterization - which is really what made the first two movies in the series.

Best to just watch this one once to see what it's about, and leave it at that.

Again the eternal fight between vampires and werewolves in this exciting but inferior follow-up
Passable sequel that concerns again the eternal taking on between vampires and Lycans . This creepy and gore-soaked vampires film begins ten years after . Unknown to humanity, centuries old blood feud raged between aristocrat vampires and subdued legion of werewolves known as Lycans . The tale traces the confrontation between a ruling class of bloodsuckers and their onetime slaves, the werewolves . When human forces discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans , a war to eradicate both species commences. The vampire warrioress Selene leads the battle against humankind . As a vampire named Selena (Kate Beckinsale) emerges as a powerful rebel who rallies the rebellious bloodsuckers (Theo James) to rise up against Doctor Jacob Lane (Stephen Rea) . She also discovers that she has a 12-year-old Vampire/Lycan hybrid daughter (India Eisley's character is referred to throughout the movie as "Subject 2" but credited as "Eve") . Selene is joined by Detective Sebastian (Michael Ealy) , in his struggle against the Lycans and his fight for freedom . Neverheless , the war was not as it had seemed . Soon the hunt would be on for his killer . As the war between vampires and werewolves get more personal and deadly , they decide to launch a full-scale attack on the hideout in order to extinguish the race.

This amazing movie packs frantic action , thrills ride , stirring fighting , graphic violence , excessive body count: 128 and is pretty entertaining . The film's release date is on the same day as Underworld: Evolution's, released six years earlier. The picture continues the characteristic of the series that the major supporting parts are played by well-known actors from the UK, in this case Charles Dance and Stephen Rea . Furthermore , there appears uncredited Wes Bentley . And is the first Underworld film not to feature Bill Nighy, Michael Sheen or Brian Steele . It packs large loads of guts and gore , there's a huge body count, this one actually knocks off an immense amount , several vampires and werewolves are staked bloodily in the chest, even more impaled with large claws. There's really savage decapitation, plenty of bodies ripped in scraps and half, including some of the most tears ever, that spill lots of blood and numerous get shot up with arcs . Most of vampires, Lycans and humans victims are relegated to being bitten in the throat and neck and the breathtaking fighting scenes are realized with magnificent special and visual effects as well as excellent make-up department . The film blends horror, suspense, struggles, rip-roaring action, terror and lots of blood and gore . Set design is of first class , settings are stylized, Gothic scenarios , and spooky and ghoulish atmosphere. Special effects are breathtaking , part of them are made by means of computer generator and part by make up . Bone-chilling and atmospheric musical score by Paul Haslinger and colorful and dark cinematography by Scott Kevan ; being the first film in the series to be in real-d 3-d and Imax 3-d . Spectacular and moving direction by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein , though Jalmari Helander was offered a chance to direct. The interesting but mediocre screenplay was written by Len Wiseman , Kate Beckinsale's husband , who directed the former entries , along with Danny McBride and Kevin Grevioux . All actors and technicians participated in the previous outings , including , of course , Kate Beckinsale as a relentless action woman , being well replaced by Rhona Mitra in former entry titled ¨Rise the Lycans¨. Recommended to those who amuse those kind of vampires-werewolves films or those enjoy in general.

An Average Film in an Above Average Series
Kate Beckinsale once again turns in an excellent performance as the Death Dealer, "Selene". Only this time, she teams up with a vampire named "David" (played by Theo James), a human police detective named "Sebastian" (Michael Ealy) and her young hybrid daughter "Eve" (India Eisley). As our story evolves, we find that the humans have now become aware of both the lycans (werewolves) and the vampires and they have launched a massive purge to eliminate both species. After several years of fighting the humans mistakenly believe that the lycans have been totally annihilated and turn all of their focus on exterminating the vampires. But while this was going on, the lycans were secretly rebuilding their ranks and 12 years later have reentered the war on the side of neither the humans nor the vampires. They begin by seeking out Eve for experimental purposes involving genetic manipulation. But in order to capture her they must contend with Selene. Anyway, having given a basic rundown on the film, let me just say that it had some good things going for it--and some not-so-good things as well. First, this picture has a great deal of action and computer graphics which the directors (Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein) use to keep the picture flowing at a very brisk pace. Unfortunately, there is too much action and not enough dialogue, which causes this film to seem a bit shallow. Another factor involved "Michael" (Scott Speedman) who was noticeably "missing in action" from this movie. Fortunately, Kate Beckinsale once again dominates this film and it is quite likely that she is the only irreplaceable person in this series. Along with that, I liked the addition of David and his presence also helped fill in any gaps that were missing due to the absence of Michael. On the other hand, I didn't care for the addition of Eve as I believe adding another "hybrid" to the story doesn't really add anything significant to this series. Likewise, the fact that she is a 12-year old kid takes a bit off from the "sleek and sexy" quality of past films. In short, this film had some good points, but it had some bad points too. As such, I consider this to be an average film in an above average series. Hopefully, they will realize some of these faults and return to some serious dialogue and plot the next time, instead of just relying on action and CGI to carry the film.

if you base this on the previous movies you might be.....
Disappointed. I really wanted to like it because of Kate. It seemed like it was a video game cut-scenes spliced together.

Pro:

1) it was an underworld movie and even a bad one deserves 3 stars

2) The cast was good Steven Rea, and Michael Ealy, and were good.

3) Action scenes were tolerable.

Cons:

1) it seems like 90% of the dialog was stripped out.

2) Kate appeared a bit wooden, unlike her previous character, Of course her character explains why she doesn't emote much.

3) there are a strainer full of plot holes in this episode (oops) film.

4) This movie(episode) could have fit into a real movie with dialog.

"Underworld: Awakening"- An interesting but middling installment in the cult fan-favorite franchise. Good fun, but shoddily written.
"Underworld: Awakening", the fourth chapter in the long-running cult action franchise, has been met with a relatively poor reception amongst fans of the series. And while I cannot endorse the plethora of highly negative reviews, I do have to comment that I can't help but understand the frustration. Because beneath the flashy visuals, outstanding action and another good turn from series star Kate Beckinsale... the film is just a very strange little footnote that doesn't quite fit in as well as it ought have.

The concept is actually pretty inspired and genuinely fascinating, taking a hard left turn for the series that should have injected fresh blood into the narrative. After all, Selene's story and indeed the story of the "Underworld" saga seemed well-defined and generally complete by the end of the second installment, "Evolution." We needed something dramatic to happen in order to justify its continuation. And I do think that in better hands, the new concepts and ideas crafted in "Awakening" would have been an interesting fit for the franchise. But it just doesn't quite come together. Mainly because it's such a jarringly different film and the script is highly problematic.

Quite simply... it just isn't the "Underworld" we remember so fondly from the previous three films. But I do think it has some value, even if it is a middling and mediocre revamp for the series.

Shortly after the fall of Markus, mankind stumbles onto the existence of the Vampire and Lycan tribes, resulting in panic and hatred from the general public. It soon becomes priority number one for the governments of the world to eradicate the non-human entities that stalk the streets come nightfall. Both species are hunted down by specialized task-forces, brought to the brink of extinction. Selene (Beckinsale) is captured and placed in suspended animation, and it appears her beloved Michael is killed in an attack. She awakens twelve years later in a high-tech research facility owned by a corporation called "Antigen." Escaping, she soon enough discovers that while frozen, she evidently gave birth to a young Hybrid known as Eve (India Eisley), and together, mother and daughter will be forced into a fight for survival... and eventually a struggle for vengeance, as Selene seeks retribution for the cruel actions that tore her life apart.

Directed by the duo of Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein from a script co-written by series creator Len Wiseman, if nothing else the movie is definitely visually exciting and endlessly stylish. It's certainly never a dull film, and it moves along with great speed and an urgent sense of pacing. Mårlind and Stein have a very interesting visual sensibility, and the film is consistently sleek and very modern, giving it an interesting sense of identity in comparison to the more stark and Gothic look of the other films. Their work in the action department is also a ton of fun, and the plethora of gun-battles and ferocious fight scenes are definitely a blast and a half to behold.

The cast is fairly good for the most part. Series star Beckinsale is wonderful as always, and the film gives her some good material to work with. Selene is at her lowest in this story, and Beckinsale gives the character a great sense of pathos. While he might not quite be an adequate replacement for Scott Speedman's Michael, Theo James is game for some action as a new vampire sidekick in David. Stephen Rea brings some class as an evil research scientist who runs the corporation responsible for Selene's capture. And I really enjoyed the small supporting role by Michael Ealy as a police officer who becomes an unlikely ally for Selene's cause. Unfortunately, I found India Eisley underwhelming as Eve, and I thought she was probably the weakest link. I just didn't buy her in the role- especially when she goes full-on Hybrid during a few key action set pieces early on, and she doesn't get nearly enough presence in the story.

Unfortunately, as has been the case with the series as a whole, the writing is quite wonky, and this is probably the most poorly-written film of the entire saga. The concept is actually very good and affords a lot of interesting developments for the world established in the series, but most of the new ideas at play are simply glossed over far too quickly to be effective. The set-up of the film- the vampires and Lycans being hunted to near extinction- should have been a much greater focus, but it's really only addressed in the film's montage-style opening credits sequence. Key characters like Michael are written off in the first act with barely a mention later on, which felt like a betrayal after his importance to the story and to Selene. (And that's not spoiling anything... it happens in the first five minutes.) And the film just moves too quickly for its own good. I also can't help but feel that the new tone and style established in the narrative conflicts a bit too much with what came before- it stops feeling like an "Underworld" movie within the first fifteen minutes, instead becoming a more standard and trendy revenge-thriller, which I found quite jarring.

Nevertheless, great action, good performances and an interesting idea mostly salvage the film, and it's still a good bit of fun. If you're completely in love with the series, there's a good chance you'll come out hating "Underworld: Awakening" for being such a mediocre follow- up. But if you're like me and enjoy the films while being able to admit that they're not high art and have their share of flaws, you'll probably be able to forgive its more obvious faults and enjoy it for what it is... non-stop carnage starring a character we know and love.

I give it a middle of the road 6 out of 10.

I am very disappointed.
There was a time when I like the Underworld series. The first one had a good plot, solid acting, and added something to the mythos, even as it borrowed from the White Wolf universe. The second one was... tolerable at best. It was worth watching, at least, which is more than I can say for Rise of the Lycans. That was a total waste of time.

Despite the general downhill trend, I decided to check this one out in the theater. Boy, was that a waste! If the writers couldn't come up with a better villain than a steroid abusing werewolf, they need to go back to the drawing board. There are so many things they could have done with this scenario. We could have seen the Abominations come to the forefront, for one, as their strengths would have made them very difficult for the humans to kill.

Instead we see the Lycans taking the place of the Vampires (which I thought was alright, except for the whole Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Werewolf bit), the Vampires have all turned into a bunch of little sniveling wimps, and we are once AGAIN left wondering just what the hell is the Abomination even doing in the movie!! Yeah, I said it! The Hybrid is supposed to be some kind of immensely powerful beast capable of taking down even an elder vampire. This is something referenced multiple times throughout the series, and yet every time a hybrid gets into a fight, they get their head stomped in! In the first movie, Michael got smacked down by the elder, who is later killed by (da da DAH!) Selene. In the second movie, Michael once again gets punked, but at least he made one kill before the day is once again saved by (dah dah DAH!) Selene! Now in this, the fourth in the series, presumably focused on the hybrids, Michael gets punked even worse right at the start! They could have had him at least take out a few of the guys coming after him before he got knocked on his backside and put on ice! Sure, the little girl does alright. No better than Michael ever did, but at least she got a kill in her first screen outing. It seems to me that the only tough characters in these films are the females.

My point is this: if the hybrids are supposed to be the "future," and the Lycans and Vampires are both scared to death of them, WHY don't we see more of their abilities?! Why are we left disappointed time and time again? Why do the writers insist on making the hybrids do little more than turn blue and roar a few times before getting the crap beat out of them? If you writers have nothing better to do with the hybrids, TAKE THEM OUT OF THE SERIES. They are, to this point, little more than a near worthless sidekick, and they add almost nothing to the story outside of being the target for aggression from both sides.

I gave the film 3 starts because it at least had good special effects. Beyond that, it's a flop. Predictable plot, mediocre fight scenes, and a villain that made me think Bruce Banner had been bitten by a werewolf. If this is the direction the series is headed, I am done with it.

Another great film in the Franchise although Michael's Absence kinda bothered me..
When human forces discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans, a war to eradicate both species commences. The vampire warrior Selene leads the battle against humankind. With Blood Wars coming out on December 1st i decided to wrap up my reviews for the Underworld Franchise once and for all with Underworld: Awakening a film that i remembered very different because Underworld 4 is actually pretty good and Kate Beckinsale still rocks as Selene she even went on a rampage and killed humans on this one, there's even a scene where she visits the building where her daughter is in and they shoot her and she is just a boss. But the biggest surprise from this film was actually India Eisley as Eve her transformation was terrific and i loved that part where she fought against Stephen Rea who plays Dr. Jacob Lane who also had another great transformation as for the big werewolf i think he was alright he isn't the worst bad guy of this Franchise but he isn't the best one either the cgi was a bit off at times but for the most part there were some practical effects also which saves the film more. Sandrine Holt has officially been murdered by a Terminator, a Werewolf and Zombies. To wrap this up if you know what you're getting into you won't be disappointed and this is definitely a much better Franchise than Resident Evil in my opinion.
