Underworld: Awakening (2011)

Directed by mans marlind, bjorn stein
Written by Len Wiseman john Hlavin, j. Michael Straczynski, & Allison Burnett
Starring Kate Beckinsale, India Eisley

If you like the series this is the best one. The action sequences are compelling and exciting. Every moment of this film has an element of danger and immediate importance. The emotion of the film is congruent with the action. All sides are fighting for good reason.

This film takes CGI a bit further then the original Underworld or Evolution because the lycons are much more animal-like. There are still the usual lycons but in this film there’s a new type of lycon forced to live underground in sewers and mutated to something resembling a large rate.

This film was fun and exciting to watch. No real need to see it in 3D, like I did, but I can’t wait to see the next one.

No rating. This is just a solid day at the movies. It’s the kind of film you can appreciate coming out of Hollywood. It’s just good fun.
