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
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.
Kate Beckinsale in paint and leather, Bill Nighy, Vampires and Lycans fighting to the death...have i anything more to say...thats how its done right Stephanie Meyer!
After finally watching Underworld I can say that my thirteen year old self was right to scoff at the trailers of this meandering and bombastic mess of a film (though it probably helped I was a kid raised on 80s and 90s horror and keen to the idea that style over substance rarely worked.) This film tries so hard to build it's own universe and deep folklore and mythology, but the truth of it is, it's execution is so tedious and cliched you couldn't care less about the supposedly epic global struggle between werewolves and vampires. It's all done in such Matrix-aping, glossy and vacuous ways that any idea of "fun" that a film with a concept like this should…
Wie eine der Rezensionen schon sagte: Matrix mit Vampiren und Werwölfen.
Ist kurzweilig zu gucken, hat ein wenig was von Matrix, Blade, Queen of the Damned und so. Keine wirklich große Story, aber man weiß eigentlich immer, warum sie sich gerade prügeln. :)
ma vi pare
I was hoping for something a bit different i think. It was somewhat entertaining, but i didn't feel the vampires did anything..vampire-like. I understand it's suppose to be a more modern/future take on things, but vampires armed to the teeth with machine guns take away the vampire appeal for me. How hard is it to shoot a person or a huge werewolf when you automatic pistols and machine guns? Especially when every clip had 100+ rounds in them. So, not very good, but they were smart to cast Kate Beckinsale bc she's insanely hot and makes this movie almost worth watching.
I don't know about you guys, but I love the Underworld series. This series, along with Blade is what made me a fan of vampires films. Before then, I wrote them off because most of them are love stories. What I failed to realize it that they should be love stories, and I had a misconception of what vampires were all about. Abraham ("Bram") Stroker's original Dracula novel from 1897 was a love story through and through. Even Underworld is a love story at heart. The same argument could be made for Blade, since his love for his mother, and hatred for the monsters that stole her from him is what drove his quest for vengeance. Underworld is more like…
A good werewolf and vampire movie.
The movie looks stunning, Kate Beckinsale looks cool, an underatted flick that may not be great but doesnt get enough credit.
Vampires and werewolves and Kate Beckinsale.
I'd be lying if I claimed this heldy attention all the way through.
