UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING [movie] Review
The 4th instalment in the vampire vs werewolf series adds a new twist; humans.
If you were a fan of the 1st, enjoyed the 2nd, and tolerated the 3rd, you’ll find this one to be a breath of fresh air. It feels more organic to see humans battling against monsters (but don’t worry, the Lycans find a way to be real jerks). And *SPOILER ALERT* the switching of Michael for his dish-daughter with Celine as the role of “sidekick” is so needed. I don’t know about you guys but the whole ‘I love Michael and will fight everyone’ gag was getting old. HOWEVER, that being said, the ending of the movie totally sets it up for another family-filled sequel ;)
This is definitely one of my favorite vampire series. Mostly for the vamp/lycan war storyline. And…possibly…because Kate Beckinsale is a total babe. And while I do think this new film was a step in the right direction, I feel like their going the way of so many action flicks: gimmicky special effects *cough*3D*cough* + forgettable characters + filler storyline that always leaves it open for a sequel. As long as they keep adding the epic plot twists that Underworld is known for, I’ll keep seeing them (and so should you)
