Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
An immortal battle for supremacy.
Vampires and werewolves have waged a nocturnal war against each other for centuries. But all bets are off when a female vampire warrior named Selene, who's famous for her strength and werewolf-hunting prowess, becomes smitten with a peace-loving male werewolf, Michael, who wants to end the war.
A Gothic horror film that doubles up as an action film was definitely something new back in 2003. We had "Blade" but the Gothic scenery and feel that Len Wiseman brought to life was a whole new take on a modern day vampires versus werewolves story-line.
This film does look stylish. It has plenty of thrills, a great back-story and a leather clad anti-heroine as its focal point. Kate Beckinsale has rarely looked better and although some of the dialogue is a touch on the cringeworthy side, it makes up for it with plenty of action and some nice turns from the likes of Bill Nighy and Michael Sheen. As hokum goes it is pretty entertaining and with good special…
The Matrix: Vampire and Werewolf Edition
Fun. Dark. Bloody. Sexy.
On an overall scale, Underworld may lack depth or any true purpose. But, for being an action epic about werewolves and vampires in war with one another, it certainly delivers on being one heck of a carefree good time popcorn fodder flick.
For some reason I find this endlessly rewatchable.
Love the opening narration, cold Kate Beckinsale, the mood, beautiful Sophia Myles, bad-ass Victor. I just love Underwold :-)
Also, Michael Sheen adds such a sense of calm dignity to his performance, his delivery of the line "My War?" just never gets out of my head.
I am a sucker for the, but you have to love a good old fashioned Werewolf/Vampire tearup.
In this one, the two tribes try to cultivate a hybrid, but the elders aren't happy bunnies at all.
Half Vampire, half Lycan, but stronger than both.
This was the first R-rated movie I saw in the theaters. I was 12 and my mom had to sneak me in.
I also remember falling asleep about 1/3 in. Never went back to seeing it or any of the sequels. Oh well.
Everyone has seen this film
Very well made and Kate Beckinsale in skintight leather!
Whats not to like?
Now this is the way you film vampires and werewolves. The vampires are leather clad, cold killers that live in a castle style mansion. The werewolves are actual beasts, not just suped up canines. The war between them is intense and brutal, and has lasted hundred of years. The whole series is fabulous, and I can't wait for the next generation to come.
So nun zum zweiten und letzten Mal gesehen. Da ich durch einen Freund den dritten gesehen habe, wollte ich nun den ersten nochmal sehen. Miene Bewertung bleibt gleich und auch meine Meinung. Diese Idee ist zweifelsfrei super, allerdings ist die Umsetzung nicht die vom aller feinsten. Underworld versucht alles gleichzeitig umzusetzen, was diesen Film etwas kaputt macht. Dies und die Tatsache, dass ich die Hauptdarsteller nicht sympatisch finde, bringt diesen Film knapp nicht in meine Sammlung. Schade eigentlich, denn Werwölfe gegen Vampire, davon könnte ich mehr sehen.
Vampire Death Dealer Selene soon finds out that the age old battle between her kind and the Lycans started for reasons that have been kept a closely guarded secret.
The first entry in the Underworld franchise, and the result is a mixed bag. The story is enjoyable but does not take a lot of thinking about, and the mix of action of horror themes do work quite well together. The acting is pretty wooden and the majority of characters are instantly forgettable, and even though Kate Beckinsale is good, it is the great Bill Nighy that steals every scene he is in. The special effects are quite well done, but the overall style does make things look like a cross…
It takes awhile to get comfortable in this universe giving Underworld a rocky first act, but when the plot starts to develop it's a decent vampire vs werewolf flick.
For some reason I remember this movie was way cooler when it came out, probably I was more impressionable back then, now there's a lot of things that seem very ridiculous.
I remember we ended up watching this because the film we wanted to see was sold out. I never saw any of the sequels after this, as this one was so ridiculous.
Pretty cool vampires and werewolves. Nice action.
The war between the vampires and the lycans is on. The start of a multiple movie series starts off fairly well. Don't grammy nominations here. But it's an entertaining movie enough. Some crazy action, chessy effects and so so acting make a so so movie.
