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.
Eh, it's okay.
I remember loving this movie back in my vampire obsessed days when this first came out back before the sparkling lame vampire days. Kate Beckinsale kicked major ass as Selene, beautiful and deadly vampire /Death dealer.
Vampires and lycantrophes warring in London's underworld, presented as an action thriller in a GOTHIC HORROR setting. Enjoyable, once I had shaken off the nausea from watching something that felt like a comic book looking like a computer game.
I would call it well-done and easily watched, and without pretensions of being a very deep film or a piece of art.
In a war between vampires and lycans (werewolves), Selene (Kate Beckinsale) has always fought on the side of her vampire brethren. But after meeting Michael (Scott Speedman), a human who has recently been bitten by a werewolf, she begins to wonder which side she really wants to fight for.
I've avoided these movies for a very long time now because they just haven't looked all that interesting to me. I love vampires and I especially love werewolves but the trailers for these movies have always made them look incredibly bland and straight-to-video-ish. But now that I've actually watched the first, I have to say I was rather entertained. This is by no means a well-produced film of course. The effects…
Maybe one of the best comic book film adaptations ever
Unrated Cut: Quite an entertaining pre-Twilight vampire vs. lycan film. The acing from the the leads is for the most part good to passable. Bill Nighy and Michael Sheen give standout performances given the material. Kate Beckinsale is also quite good. The action is good though the final shootouts between the vampire and lycan soldiers are pretty goofy.
WB - Hey, Trinity from the Matrix is pretty bad-ass, what if we made a movie with just her doing awesome action?
Audience - yeah that sounds cool!
WB - ok but it cant take place in the Matrix because those sequels are coming out soon. So instead she'll be a vampire that hunts lycans.
Audience - uhhh ok.
Maybe it's because I just re-watched The Matrix but I didnt realize how much of a clone of that movie this is. The opening action sequence happens in a subway where a bunch of black trench coat wearing people shoot automatic weapons in stylish slow-mo. The thing the Matrix didnt have in its subway scene was the crazy amount of product…
Why make a vampires vs werewolves movie if the only fighting is going to be gunfights?
Bill Nighy is the only actor worth a damn in this thing.
A vampire versus werewolf movie made a little before the craze truly began to take over and all the better because of it.
Kate Beckinsale is a mesmerizing and strong female protagonist that you will root for from the start.
