Some things will never change within the tedious and surprisingly long-running sci-fi/horror saga Underworld film franchise. The vampires will still feature sharp fangs that can pierce a hardened leather sofa with one bite and the werewolves will be hairier than the local women’s wig shop. Of course the curvaceous heroine of this Gothic gumball machine of a flick–Love & Friendship’s Kate Beckinsale–will predictably wear leather-clad attire that will cling to her shapely body tighter than a preschooler hanging on to his mother’s leg because he is scared to enter the classroom for the very... read the rest.
This franchise was a thing back then when the Matrix phenomenon was at force but now a days they should let it rest, otherwise a cluster of nonsense, much like the Resident Evil movie franchise, it is sure to become.
In other words the movie ain't that bad but this entry is just franchise milking at this point.
I wouldn't mind if it would be made a video game franchise though.
I think it is fairly safe to say that if you did not like any of the other installments in the Underworld movie series then you will not like this one.

It is what, the fifth in the franchise and the feature film debut for the directress of the television series.
As always, worth watching for Kate. The story continued, and it focused on the remai... read the rest.
Kate Beckinsale is back as Selene in Underworld:Blood Wars. Director Anna Foerster helpfully recaps the Underworld franchise, useful as they are in main forgettable films apart from the vision of Beckinsale in skin tight black leather.
Blood Wars also gives us a lovely vision of Lara Pulver's treacherous vampire Semira in a dress that is just about held up by tape on her breasts.
The Lycans led by new leader Marius are slaughtering vampires are on the brink of victory. Marius pursues Selene as he needs her daughter's blood.
Selene meanwhile has tried to make amends with the vampire el... read the rest.
