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.
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!
Trotz eines doch eher kleinen Budgets ein großartiger Auftakt zu einer großartigen Reihe. Vampire und Werwölfe schaffen den Sprung in die moderne Welt und kämpfen einen erbitterten Kampf mit teilweise sehr modernen, wenn nicht futuristischen Waffen. Durch die Farbgebung des Films wird eine perfekt passende Atmosphäre für die Handlung geschaffen, die mit ein paar Überraschungen aufwartet.
I absolutely loved this movie, from the unified industrial soundtrack to the werewolf (lycan) designs and borderline Harryhausenesqe transormations. I loved the unashamed love story and the understated hybrid monster. I loved Kate Beckinsale as an unflinching badass who can open fire with an automatic pistol and not blink. I loved Michael Sheen as Lucian and Bill Nighy as Viktor, two of the most charismatic villains to grace a gothic horror (ish) movie.
I loved this movie.
Vampires V Werewolves, lots of black leather. Kate Beckinsale in said black leather and a Basque with big blazing guns and silver bullets.
The Matrix of the supernatural. I absolutely love this film.
the Bluray is stunning. the detail is incredible, and the opening scene where Selene (K.B) is sitting on a roof in the rain, you can see every drop of rain in fine detail.
Go on treat yourself and get the boxed set.
Looks great, which works for an art exhibit. Unfortunately, these are moving pictures, and the movement here is so BORING.
this should be a movie I should fucking adore but it's just not very well directed, an obvious Matrix rip-off and I must have seen this like 10 times and I still have no damn idea what's going on with the plot or mythology because it's all delivered in incomprehensible flashbacks and various conflicting monologs from people who cant be trusted
I like the idea of Michael's character, an everyman to see the story through and to have a sort of reverse twilight scenario going on but he's just a shit actor, a dull unrealistic character and they make him overpowered to fuck and back by the end, this movie should have you feeling like MIB does where you imagine…
Entertaining but I think it could have done better.
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.
