The story is about a war between vampires and werewolves rage on as one of the vampires falls in love with one of the werewolves who wants the war to end. This movie was like the matrix but in horror style.

The first film of the franchise is the only real worthwhile entry, blending noir elements with an action packed battle between vampires and werewolves. Granted, the plot occasionally borders on the ridiculous, but the dark atmosphere is intriguing and fantastic actors like Michael Sheen and Bill Nighy get the opportunity to ham it up in a fun way.

The 'black leather coat' action movie (as I've dubbed it) was at the point of saturation when this was released. The fact that it skews into horror is the new twist in the formula. Though for a movie about vampires fighting werewolves, there is a lot of gunplay. It's the expected cliches of stylized action, muddled self-serious mythology, and forgettable characters. Most of that action is pleasing and it doesn't over use CG. In fact, the werewolf transformations are an awesome practical effect. Typical, but passable entertainment.

"Underworld" by Yojimbo

Featuring flowing leather duster coats aplenty, CGI assisted stunts, and absurdly pretty people shooting at each other in slo-mo through a blue filter, Len Wiseman obviously watched The Matrix a few too many times. And still didn't understand why it worked. The ideas are hackneyed, the dialogue (and particularly the exposition) is borderline shocking and the completely pompous lack of humour combined with pseudo gothic sets, crushed velvet and corsets makes it look like a 2 hour long Evernescence video. It's difficult for a heterosexual man to hate a film that features Kate Beckinsale in a skin tight rubber catsuit for it's entire length, and it does have some visual flair; in fact teenage goths will probably think it's the best thing ever made EVER. But anyone viewing it with any sense o...

Underworld (2003)

Selene (Kate Beckinsale) resplendent in her skin tight leather attire is a Death Dealer for the Vampires assigned to hunt down and destroy the last of the werewolves (referred to as Lycans) in an attempt to exact vengeance for the murder of her mortal family centuries ago. After discovering the werewolves using bullets capable of killing her fellow vampires, Selene returns to her coven and tells her leader Kraven (Shane Brolly) the grim news. So, the Vampires invent something deadlier, bullets with silver nitrate solution in them. But this is only the beginning. It soon turns out that Lycan Warlord Lucien (Michael Sheen) lives and is pursuing a human (Scott Speedman) who holds some kind of key to ending the ancient feud between the two immortal enemies.

Soon, Selene finds herself batt...

Could have been a lot better

"The Underworld" is a poor vampire versus werewolf movie where a vampire warrior (Kate Beckinsale) teams with a human (Scott Speedman) who wants to end the war between vampires and werewolves which has been around for centuries.

The only good thing about this movie is the dark style it is presented in. The sets and wardrobes are all dark colors, there is nothing bright and cheery in any part of the movie.

The acting is, at best, fair. You really do not cheer or boo anybody in this movie. Except for maybe the fight near the end between the lead vampire and the human, who turns out to be a hybrid of a vampire-werewolf union.

There is little to no action in this movie. Of what there is, it is nothing too exciting. The amount of blood is also pretty disappointing. Since the plot i...
