    Underworld 4... or is it 3? Was way better than number 2. It picks up where number two left off and gets you up to speed on the story. I stand by my complaints with this series. Low special effects budgets and poor lighting choices continue to plague this series. I couldn't stand the constant flashing lights in the Antigen Building. The blue lighting returns as always which is a bummer in my opinion. Since they're making a 4th... or…

    Now on the 4th film, and I heard another film in the making in 2017, the fight returns between Vampire and Lycan.
    This film is completely different from the previous three, something that this franchise always does, bring a whole new story with each film. Lots of action. The first film is still my favorite.

    Obviously no Underworld film will ever be a danger to the Oscar crowd, but the series has been nothing if not well crafted, fun genre escapism. If you disagree there's no reason to see this one, but if you (like me) enjoyed the first three installments, Awakening is a worthy addition. I won't bother to explain the plot, as it basically continues the mythology established in the other films (Vampires, Lycans, hybrids and the battle to be the dominant species),…

    I liked the previous 3 Underworld movies. Everything in this one is just wrong. Plot, CGI, character development. I know I watched this one before, but had no recollection...now I know why, it was so bad that I didn't even bother to remember it.

    "You're as cold as one already dead."

    I just watched all four of these in a row so I don't really have the forbearance to write out a really detailed review of this one. It's definitely the worst Underworld movie, but much like how Rise of the Lycans was the best one it is really only worst by the width of a werewolf's ass hair.

    This series never seemed concerned with solving any of the problems that the first one…

    When details finally came out about "Underworld: Awakening," my heart sunk a little. True, the second installment wasn't very good, and the third was a prequel, but I was still looking forward to seeing further adventures of the vampire, Selene (Kate Beckinsale). As it turns out, she's the only returning cast member. Everyone else is gone from the project, leaving her the one tie to a series (seemingly) well past its prime. "Awakening" also clocks in at under 90 minutes,…

    An action packed vampire movie with tons of gore and over stylised kills. Whilst the story line in underworld awakening lacks in places and they seem to focused on setting up the ending. You can kind of forgive it as Kate beckinsale in tight leather pants and non stop action make underworld awakening a fun ride.

    Shoot me. I fucking love this series. Can't help it.

    Too bad Len Wiseman didn't return in the director's chair. His flair was definitely missing here, as the directing and cinematography was serviceable instead of gluing my eyes to my screen.

    The lack of mythology is traded for an extinction/experimentation-story. It works, but it does feel a tad lower than the first two films that ooze that Lycan-Vampire lore, which makes the Underworld franchise what it is.

    Still tons of fun. I know, shoot me. Yes, Kate, you can shoot me with those eyes.

    If I felt guilty- this (and all the underworld films) would be my guilty pleasure movie 

    But I don't feel guilty and this flick is pure fun

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Underworld: Awakening is exactly as silly-stupid as the first Underworld, except a) it is (a lot) more violent and b) there is very little time spent explaining things. It's not as if the audience is treated as adults or anything, but they are treated like the (nerdy) 16-year-old boys that the movie clearly expects to be the dominant element. And in all fairness, this sequel could not possibly service them better, figuratively.

    The proxy figure for that young male audience…

    The fourth installment in the "Underworld" franchise is a very fast paced 90 min ride, but it is never boring, and has very little downtime throughout. Yes, the action is not exactly memorable, but it is still a fun time to watch. This sequel is much more violent with plenty of head shots, as well as a big ass Lycan which is visually cool to see. Kate Beckensale is back to kick ass, so what else do you need?

    You…

    The worst of the series. Not even had I watched 50 mins of the movie and I was bored completely. The plot seems all messy and nonsensical, it frustrated the hell out me. It was all over the place, and to top it off, the ending hinted there will be another movie in the sequel... again.
