Amazing movie
I have been a big fan of all the underworld movies. I believe the story is amazingly well played and its never a "you are left wanting more" film. I have read a few reviews of this film from people saying that it lacks story line/plot. Which I cannot believe. Every Underworld movie brings something new to the scene. One review said there was a 'dull' breakout intro kinda feeling like 'resident evil' style. First off, this is incredibly wrong. This movie (and all other underworlds) LACKED any dullness. Yes, Kate Beckinsale is incredibly gorgeous eye candy and the effects were amazing. But I'm not entirely sure where someone can come off and say this lacked story. In my opinion, the people saying this are people who think "Jessica's body" had a good story line. Underworld always leaves it off with such a twist or an ending that leaves so much room for whatever and has the potential to go in any direction. This movie was well played and directed. People saying they 'didn't get the little girl thing' obviously didn't pay attention to dialog or the EXPRESSION on Selenes face. Please, if you are a fan of underworld, or Kate Beckinsale, don't miss out on an amazing film because some people can't understand something that's not spelled out in perfect cliché. Cliché... something Underworld has yet to bring to the table. Awesome job everyone. Keep it up.
Time to put a stake in it
So, 6 years after the last time Kate Beckinsale donned a leather corset to play vampire warrior Selene and after making a 3rd edition of the franchise without her, the folks behind Underworld come back with a 4th go round which really does nothing more than prove they probably should have left well enough alone after the 2nd movie. With four people credited for the screenplay, it's not exactly a surprise to find Awakening is the worst written film of the lot and the addition of 3D can't disguise the fact that there's nothing visually new or interesting here. If you're a big fan of these films, you might just barely find this one to be passable. If you enjoyed the original, which was a good and solid little fantasy action flick, but noticed the decline in quality of the sequels, you'll find the pattern continuing here.

As the motion picture begins, the existence of vampires and Lycans has been uncovered by humanity and the result has been all-out war against the "infected". You think that'd be kind of a big deal and take the story in some new direction, but it's nothing more than a plot device. Selene and her hybrid vamp/werewolf lover Michael (not Scott Speedman) get attacked and Selene wakes up from suspended animation 12 years later in a lab. She thinks Michael is the one who freed her but it turns out to be their hybrid daughter (India Eisley) and no, they never even make an attempt to explain where the daughter came from. With the help of a human cop (Michael Ealy) and a new vampire sidekick (Theo James), Selene has to save her daughter. Not from the humans but from a Lycan scheme to create new super-werewolves, which sort of gets back to the whole plot device nature of humans knowing about the denizens of Underworld. It's not a new beginning for the series or anything like that. It's just the hook they needed to get this production off the ground.

If you saw Beckinsale in the first two Underworld movies, there's nothing here that will surprise you. Frankly, part of this film get dangerously close to outright fan fiction, such as when Selene revives in the lab and finds her traditional leather outfit just waiting for her to put back on. I mean, what scientific purpose was served by keeping her clothes around for 12 years? Beckinsale looks damn good, shoots a bunch of stuff and there's plenty of CGI Lycans and slo-mo action scenes. If that's all you want, have at it.

If you're looking for a good story, even one only as good as the first or second parts of the franchise, don't bother. Underworld wasn't exactly Shakespeare but by fantasy action standards, it was a reasonably intelligent and well put together tale. The sequel was a bit too wrapped up in its own mythos, but was still functional. The third movie was strictly by-the-numbers, though it did flip the dynamic by making the Lycans more heroic than the vampires. However, Underworld: Awakening is a morally confused mess.

One of the reasons why the "vampire as hero" thing works is by being very circumspect about the whole "needing to feed on human blood" thing. By downplaying that, vampires change from menacing predators to really cool hipsters with super-powers. So, the original Underworld largely removed humans from the equation and focused on the werewolf vs. vampire conflict and put Selene in the role of heroine by defending the only major human character in the story. She then uncovered and rejected the villainy of her own bloodsucking kind, cementing Selene's moral and narrative virtue. Selene may have been a vampire but she never seemed to need to feed on humans and was mostly on our side. That dynamic continued in the 2nd flick and the third cast vamps as medieval tyrants facing a courageous Lycan rebellion where, again, humans were largely left out of the fight.

Underworld: Awakening opens with Selene slaughtering a score of human soldiers and then kills some more when she escapes from the lab, including chomping a guy on the neck and feasting on his blood. She's not a good guy who's trying to protect people from bad guys. She's an at best morally neutral creature who's only trying to survive and the viewer is expected to side with her out of nothing more than misanthropic contempt for your fellow human beings. This film assumes there's something wrong with normal people trying to protect themselves from supernatural monsters but never explains what that is. It also doesn't help that the plot is one of those multi-writer efforts where different bits from different versions of the script wind up jammed together on screen. There are too many characters and too many scenes that should have been cut out or significantly changed.

There are so few female-driven movie franchises that it's a shame to see this one swirl down the toilet bowl. Beckinsale and the first Underworld deserved the attention and success they got, but it's time to drag these movies out into the sunlight and let them burn up so we can all move on.
Thanks a lot
Really thanks a lot for the makers of this movie. Couldn't imagine more to ruin the reputation of a good trilogy. I think, even these modern video games' in game videos are far better than this movie.

There was no "oh what comes next?" question in my head. Just watched meaningless fights. You were getting excited while watching the fights in former series. There is no need to talk about characters who toss cars around like toys and can't even break the wall. Selene's and the werewolves final fight was really stupid. Selene who did unbelievable things just waited in the corner of the room like a cat. The big bad wolf was just tossing Selene around.

Even if I would consider this movie as not a sequel, it still would be an under average scored one.

Maybe it would be harsh but I would consider Underworld: Awakening in the same category of Twilight Saga for being a bad vampire&werewolf movie.
Underworld fans will really like this movie!
Lots of action. Great effects. Very entertaining. Interesting continuation of the story. Love the little girl! They did a great job of leaving you hanging in anticipation of the next one. We will be looking forward to it! Kate Beckinsale is awesome as always. The effects for the little girl are great. Its always fun to see a young girl kick some butt, and watching her build a relationship with her mother was interesting. That's the part that got me really into it, was watching the relationship develop and the protective instincts coming out for mother and the daughter. I really enjoyed this movie, but then again, I have always been an Underworld fan. People who have not been following the series will clearly not enjoy it as much. I would suggest for them to watch all 3 of the prior movies before going. Underworld, Underworld Evolution, and Rise of the Lycans. Can't wait for the next one to come out!
Another stab at rescuing a good idea, poorly implemented.
The underworld series has a lot going for it....as STORIES.

The sad fact is that they put a malnourished female in a rubber suit and hoped that this would somehow overcome the most problematic issue with the underworld franchise: Kate Beckinsale simply cannot act.

Now, granted, I like the female form as much as the next person....but unlike some, I don't see it as a replacement for talent. Give me a fugly girl with amazing talent (or at the very least, simply does her job well) and I will pick her over a pretty moron EVERY TIME!

The fact that my wife is very sexy is coincidence; I was attracted to her brain first! But this single issue has absolutely RUINED the underworld saga. As a good example: compare the characters Lucian and Selene in the first Underworld: Michael sheen of course plays Lucian and he is absolutely outstanding in it. Kate Beckinsale on the other hand is so wooden that you really just want to see her naked for the sake of getting SOME entertainment value out of what you pay to see the movie; she really is that bad.

This movie is no exception. She fell into a formula requiring little or no effort on her part and leaving us with a character that may as well have been a bit part.

Despite valiant efforts by the other actors, unfortunately Beckinsale makes this a non-starter and it is therefore utterly deserving of the 1 star rating.
I loved Underworlds so much I started a fan fiction and people love it
My fan fic takes place roughly fifteen years after Awakening and it refers to occurrences in both Underworld and Evolution, I never saw Rise because Kate Beckinsale wasn't in it.

People have had only good things to say about the story, even though I openly welcome harsher criticism (It's the only way to improve. Please if your a fan of this movie take a look at this TV series like fan fic.

There are many new characters and a Selene is not a frightened little kitten in need of a man like in most fan fics


Selene Eve
Waste of time if you're a fan of the series.
Absolutely horrible movie. I've never been a big die-hard fan of the Underworld movies. But I have seen them all and they do indeed have an interesting story to tell. The dialog, sounds, effects, story and action have been topnotch in the first three movies. All of this is below average in this chapter.

It felt like it was oneliners all the way through. Maybe 5-10min of the dialog was actually interesting and had something to do with the bigger picture. The sounds were cheap. Mostly reminded me of teen horror/splatter design. A bullet through the arm sounded like the whole body exploded. And when we're at it... The gore was way over the top. Yeah yeah it looked "good" when a bodypart was riped off but who want to see the chainsaw-effect for each bullet? The action? There's some fast ninja vampires and big brutal lycans... And the fight between them are alright. But what really got on my nerve was the ooold mistake: "Oh look! The hero is out of ammo! Everybody drop your weapons and charge the super fast hero with the big knife!". Completely pulls you out of "the moment". The only thing connecting this movie with the rest is two characters we know and the fact that vampires and lycans doesn't like each other. That's basically what the movie is about. The movie description tells us that: "The vampire warrioress Selene leads the battle against humankind". I didn't see a battle against humankind. The only humans who died was the ones who was in the way between the vampires and lycans (And I'm not even sure they were human). Most of this review about the action. That's because 95% of the movie is action. It's a disgrace against the series.

The only reason I'll give it 3/10 is because Beckinsale and Eisley does an amazing job at what can actually be called "story telling".
Meh.....Okay I guess
I'm not sure why this film seems to be getting fantastic reviews. I mean it was a good enough action flick but it didn't blow my mind. In fact it was a case of the same old stuff just done better. Brilliant to watch but not refreshing at the same time. The story was lacking in depth and character development and just felt like a filler for another sequel.

I don't want to be all doom and gloom about it because Kate really did kick some ass and looked good doing it too so as far as action and eye candy goes its great. But any fan of the series knows that the Underworld saga isn't stupid. They always paid attention to script and story and that was lacking here unfortunately.

I'm sure if you go and see it you wont be disappointed but just leave your brains at the door and watch the action commence.
Henry and Greta talk about Underworld: awakening
"You know I hesitate to say it, but Kate Beckinsale is a really cool chick. I mean I wished she jumped right into my bed, even with those heavy boots and that figure hugging suit. Lucky she found them back after she was blown to smithereens and revived in that laboratory. Although she would have been naked without them. Oh god I could device so ways to relieve them of her." Henry grinned. He twirled the DVD of the movie in his left hand.

"I thought we were going to keep this pg rated?" Greta quipped. She knocked the DVD out of his hand and send it flying.

"She just looks jummy in that suit, even after all these years.. I wished I could have.... Awww." Henry groaned loudly because Greta had just booted him in the shin.

"You like them boots?" Greta grinned evilly, pointing at her worn combat boots. The kind that were cool in the eighties.

"Gosh, that hurts." Henry rubbed his leg.

"Pity they left out that cute guy.. what was his name?"

"Scott Speedman?"

"Yes. That one vampire guy hasn't much of role. Nor that black police dude. And that kid. I really don't like kids in action movies. This one can't quite decide to be a hostage or some kind of remake from a Japanese horror movie. If you have to have kids in a movie, make them quiet and don't turn them into monsters!"

"With the kid there would be no reason for Kate to go and shoot up everyone. And how she kills. Like she jumps and somersaults all over the place. And some moments are really cool. Like that elevator scene where she blasts a hole in the bottom of the elevator so as not to be swatted by it when it rushes down. That one is priceless. Look how sexy she looks in that scene."

"I wished Stephen Rea had a better part in it. I liked him in V for Vendetta, but here he seems a bit lost. And him turning into a what? Was that a werewolf hit by baldness?" Greta mused.

"He did look a bit out of place. But overall I think it's a fun movie with lot's of shooting and action, and Kate Beckinsale jumping around killing hordes of people and Lycans."

"I think the werewolves - Lycans -are getting a bit threadbare. I wonder how long they keep on being interesting. "

"Well, they did add that huge one. It was evil how he tossed those cars about and hunted Kate down. That part where he corners her in a booth is funny. Grawww." Henry snarled loudly, making Greta jump.

"It's not actually not Kate, but Selene." Greta corrected, "Kate Beckinsale is the name of the actress, Selene is the name of the part she plays."

"I don't think it really matters. She might as well be Kate. Without her it would be a boring mindless slaughterfest."

"You really like her that much, Henry?"

"I sure do. I am going to start a campaign with the express purpose to get Kate to do all the next underworld movies wearing a tight PVC suit and boots, but with a wider range of guns and weapons."

"Did you say you were going to wear a tight PVC suit?! That I want to see!"

"Very funny, Greta."

"I wouldn't be surprised if you get your wish fulfilled. Although the next director might be called Uwe Boll."

"Uwe who?"

"Uwe Boll. I think he is considered the worst director currently alive."

"Well.. it doesn't really matter who directs it as long as Kate is in it wearing a tight suit killing lots and lots of Lycans in various ways." Henry shouted happily.

"And to hell with the story and the directing.." Greta whispered.
Could have been better
I saw in 'Real 3D' and to be honest it was pretty good but it could have been so much better. The emphasis was more on special effects not the story but somehow they managed to pull it of. I expected so much more from Eve 'who has more power than all of us together'. What power, I hardly saw any. I was terribly disappointed that Bill Nighy was not in it. Yes I know, Victor lost half of his head and all that but if Sigourney could have been cloned from a drop of blood in Alien III then why not Victor? Bill was for me what made Underworld so great, shame he was not part of the latest instalment. For me personally Underworld does not work that well in well lit urban areas as the edge gets taken away which is why I loved Underworld Evolution. Overall, a very good effort. Looking forward to next instalment and for the love of God bring Victor back.
