    Underworld: Blood Wars 2016

    ½ Watched 26 Nov, 2016 1

    Let's just say, I went in with very low expectations. For one of Sony's low-on-cash franchises and after Awakening, I had a pretty good idea of what to expect. That being said, it effectively managed to be worse than what I was expecting...

    Is Star Wars a mess of original material, a forgettable homage or an exciting continuation…
