Underworld Awakening 
"Underworld Awakening" by Yojimbo
2/4 stars

The vampire and Lycan races are discovered by the humans who retaliate by creating a paramilitary force to root out and exterminate them both, leading to Selene's capture and cryogenic freezing for 12 years. In a massive departure from the previous films, here we have Kate Beckinsale in a patent leather catsuit, corset and duster coat leaping around shooting rather unconvincing CGI monsters through a blue filter. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with that of course, but let's face it, the Underworld franchise gives its audience little more than a case of deja vu every time it rears its fanged head, and the films are ever more inoffensive yet forgettable for pretty much the same reasons. There's plenty of action, the cast are nice to look at and at a mercifully brief 75 minutes, it doesn't outstay its welcome but there is no invention or even the slightest attempt do anything fresh with the idea. Fans will no doubt enjoy it, but that's purely because it's exactly the same as all of the others.
