"Twilight" can suck it (pun intended), this is by far the best vampire vs. werewolf series. "Evolution" is the second of five (at least of this writing). If there's a problem with these movies, is that's there's too much backstory. There's a lot about this age-old bloodfeud between the vamps and the lycans, but, then, there also, like, these hybrids, including Scott Speedman of "Felicity" fame. But you didn't come here for the story but for the hot vampire on lycan action. Kate Beckinsale is back again and kicking ass in leather. Derek Jacobi classes it up a bit. It's ridiculous but delivers the goods. I hope you like black. Followed by "The Rise of Lycans," I think. You may also like the "Resident Evil" series.

Underworld is a thrilling fantasy horror set in contemporary times. If you like the edge-of-your-seat suspense, guns blasting, and lots of leather action, Underworld is perfect for you. The dialogue is okay, but the original take on vampire and werewolf lore is pretty unique and worth checking out if you're into it. Great soundtrack as well!

Came for a powerful female action star, stopped watching halfway due to the terrible dialogue and sheer boredom.

This fantasy/thriller film is the first in the series, and stars Kate Beckinsale, Scott Speedman, Michael Sheen, and Bill Nighy. The movie is about vampires who engage in ancient battles with their enemies; werewolves. The movie follows the drama between the vampires as they try to rise in power and overcome evil. The movie definitely reminded me of Twilight in a few ways, with some funny scenes and the vampire werewolf rivalry. I can see why some people are interested in this movie franchise, but it is not the genre for me. I would rate this movie 2.5/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Kate Beckinsdale is why we watch this !!! 420. The Vampires use guns ?? and the werewolves look silly computer generated and the mythology is stright out of a bad version of Vampire the Masqurade

Favorite movie quote - "We have a serious problem here."

When it comes to the likes of a Romeo & Juliet story presented in the genre of Fantasy/Horror, I must say that I did enjoy, for the most part, Underworld's diabolical, little tale of forbidden love.

At times Underworld's vicious, blood-thirsty story of betrayal & revenge was definitely something of a gratifying adrenaline-rush where everyone (vampires and werewolves, alike) were getting royally clobbered, one and all.

With its carefully-staged gun-battles literally taken (bullet-for-bullet) straight out of The Matrix, I found it somewhat unfortunate that Underworld's underworld of vampires & werewolves only came in one generic flavor - And, that was - The young & good-looking type.

And besides Underworld being about 20 minutes too long for its own good, I also docked this picture some serious points due to there being way too much time spent amongst the vampires & werewolves fighting and feuding with each other.

I mean, with all of the bitching, bickering and battling that went on amongst these modern-day monsters, I'm surprised that any of them had any time to feed.

Underworld's budget was $22 million. It was shot on location in Budapest, Hungary.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Not for children. People get shot and die. Werewolf transformation can be frightning.

From IMDb:

Lucian: We were slaves once. The daylight guardians of the vampires. I was born into servitude. Yet I harbored them no ill will. Even took a vampire for my bride. It was forbidden, our union. Viktor feared a blending of the species. Feared it so much he killed her. His own daughter. Burnt alive for loving me. This is his war. Viktor's. And he spent the last 600 years exterminating my species.

Selene: [voiceover] Though I cannot predict the future, the consequences of this night will reverberate through the halls of both great covens for many years to come. Two vampire elders have been slain, one by my own hand. Soon, Marcus will take the throne, and a tide of anger and retribution will spill out into the night. Differences will be set aside. Allegiances will be made. And soon, I will become the hunted.

I enjoyed watching this one for the 1st time, without lusting after Kate......2001 -2009 was a long time ago.
