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.

"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 …
