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.
