Reviews
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

"Underworld: Awakening"- An interesting but middling installment in the cult fan-favorite franchise. Good fun, but shoddily written.
"Underworld: Awakening", the fourth chapter in the long-running cult action franchise, has been met with a relatively poor reception amongst fans of the series. And while I cannot endorse the plethora of highly negative reviews, I do have to comment that I can't help but understand the frustration. Because beneath the flashy visuals, outstanding action and another good turn from series star Kate Beckinsale... the film is just a very strange little footnote that doesn't quite fit in as well as it ought have.

The concept is actually pretty inspired and genuinely fascinating, taking a hard left turn for the series that should have injected fresh blood into the narrative. After all, Selene's story and indeed the story of the "Underworld" saga seemed well-defined and generally complete by the end of the second installment, "Evolution." We needed something dramatic to happen in order to justify its continuation. And I do think that in better hands, the new concepts and ideas crafted in "Awakening" would have been an interesting fit for the franchise. But it just doesn't quite come together. Mainly because it's such a jarringly different film and the script is highly problematic.

Quite simply... it just isn't the "Underworld" we remember so fondly from the previous three films. But I do think it has some value, even if it is a middling and mediocre revamp for the series.

Shortly after the fall of Markus, mankind stumbles onto the existence of the Vampire and Lycan tribes, resulting in panic and hatred from the general public. It soon becomes priority number one for the governments of the world to eradicate the non-human entities that stalk the streets come nightfall. Both species are hunted down by specialized task-forces, brought to the brink of extinction. Selene (Beckinsale) is captured and placed in suspended animation, and it appears her beloved Michael is killed in an attack. She awakens twelve years later in a high-tech research facility owned by a corporation called "Antigen." Escaping, she soon enough discovers that while frozen, she evidently gave birth to a young Hybrid known as Eve (India Eisley), and together, mother and daughter will be forced into a fight for survival... and eventually a struggle for vengeance, as Selene seeks retribution for the cruel actions that tore her life apart.

Directed by the duo of Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein from a script co-written by series creator Len Wiseman, if nothing else the movie is definitely visually exciting and endlessly stylish. It's certainly never a dull film, and it moves along with great speed and an urgent sense of pacing. Mårlind and Stein have a very interesting visual sensibility, and the film is consistently sleek and very modern, giving it an interesting sense of identity in comparison to the more stark and Gothic look of the other films. Their work in the action department is also a ton of fun, and the plethora of gun-battles and ferocious fight scenes are definitely a blast and a half to behold.

The cast is fairly good for the most part. Series star Beckinsale is wonderful as always, and the film gives her some good material to work with. Selene is at her lowest in this story, and Beckinsale gives the character a great sense of pathos. While he might not quite be an adequate replacement for Scott Speedman's Michael, Theo James is game for some action as a new vampire sidekick in David. Stephen Rea brings some class as an evil research scientist who runs the corporation responsible for Selene's capture. And I really enjoyed the small supporting role by Michael Ealy as a police officer who becomes an unlikely ally for Selene's cause. Unfortunately, I found India Eisley underwhelming as Eve, and I thought she was probably the weakest link. I just didn't buy her in the role- especially when she goes full-on Hybrid during a few key action set pieces early on, and she doesn't get nearly enough presence in the story.

Unfortunately, as has been the case with the series as a whole, the writing is quite wonky, and this is probably the most poorly-written film of the entire saga. The concept is actually very good and affords a lot of interesting developments for the world established in the series, but most of the new ideas at play are simply glossed over far too quickly to be effective. The set-up of the film- the vampires and Lycans being hunted to near extinction- should have been a much greater focus, but it's really only addressed in the film's montage-style opening credits sequence. Key characters like Michael are written off in the first act with barely a mention later on, which felt like a betrayal after his importance to the story and to Selene. (And that's not spoiling anything... it happens in the first five minutes.) And the film just moves too quickly for its own good. I also can't help but feel that the new tone and style established in the narrative conflicts a bit too much with what came before- it stops feeling like an "Underworld" movie within the first fifteen minutes, instead becoming a more standard and trendy revenge-thriller, which I found quite jarring.

Nevertheless, great action, good performances and an interesting idea mostly salvage the film, and it's still a good bit of fun. If you're completely in love with the series, there's a good chance you'll come out hating "Underworld: Awakening" for being such a mediocre follow- up. But if you're like me and enjoy the films while being able to admit that they're not high art and have their share of flaws, you'll probably be able to forgive its more obvious faults and enjoy it for what it is... non-stop carnage starring a character we know and love.

I give it a middle of the road 6 out of 10.

Cheap episode, probably the end of story.
I was eager to watch the next part in this series, and I am left with the worst movie I have seen for long. The characters are superficial and naive, the words are mostly common sense. The story could be interesting, but the whole happening can be summarized in three sentences. The plot is reduced to some fights, there are no tricky/intellectual parts. The action parts are copies from the previous episodes, but much worse. The most ridiculous thing is that in the fight scenes the bad guys always get instantly killed, why the good guys are always just thrown away.

It looks like this movie was just an attempt to cash in the popularity of the series without further investment.

Don't bother with it.

I dreamt of the day we would meet. Like a silly little girl. You're as cold as one already dead.
Popcorn bonanza as the Underworld series passes by in a whirl of effects driven action. Kate Beckinsale returns as super sexy - latex wearing - vampire Selene, after having skipped the third movie, here added into the mix is that Selene is searching for her hybrid daughter, while the pesky humans are intent on wiping out all vampires and lycans.

Cue carnage. The story is very slight, the script equally so, where pretty much all roads lead to another action scene. So Selene leaps about a lot amongst blood, brains and beasties, the later of which fronted by a new giganticus hulkus werewolf. No actor in the film is asked to stretch their acting chops, but for fans of the series and action junkies in general, this is undeniably a good fun movie. 6/10

This movie totally blew
As it says in the summary, this movie sucked, i really loved the earlier movies due to all the great action and story but when i saw this one it was as if they'd ran out of ideas, first of all this movie is 1h15min long, the hell is that all about? :S Second of all, it barely contained any action whatsoever, watching this movie was so pointless since i got as much information from it as from the trailer. The only positive part is Kate and her sexy outfit but besides from that I'm really disappointed. Her daughter first starts by ripping apart a werewolf but after that all she does is jump on peoples backs and hang on, what happened to the strength? And Corbin isn't even in this movie, I'm sorry but they really messed up this time.

Great film (if you liked the first three)
Okay, for those of you still wondering what Underworld is all about... it's about a war between gun-totting fit female vampires in tight clothes and big ugly werewolves. So, if you've seen any of the first ones and liked them. Then watch this. You'll like this too.

If, on the other hand, you think that women in spandex leaping off buildings while firing twin pistols at a monster that, deep down, you know has been added post production via computer is a pretty dumb premise - steer well clear.

Luckily, I enjoyed the first three and loved this one too.

Twelve years after Selene's last battle, humans have only gone and figured out that vamps and werewolves are real and hunted every last one of them down (apart from the ones they missed). Selene's been frozen in ice and studied, but, luckily, she gets woken up by... you'll have to watch the film and see. But, anyway, she's more than a little cranky and being prodded while in ice by humans in lab coats for over a decade. Luckily for her (and us I guess) she's defrosted right next to her famous black slinky costume and quickly puts it on and goes to express her disgust with humanity by a strongly-worded blog and some scathing tweets (only joking, she grabs the nearest knife and gun and starts piling up the bodies).

Oh, and it's 3D this time. My only gripe. The 3D was even more pointless than every other 3D film that's designed purely to make you spend more money.

From reading other reviews the general consensus is 'more of the same.' And I can't add to that. It is. There's not a lot new here and some have criticised it for not adding to the overall story enough, but, what the hell, it's still fun and Kate Beckinsale is still gorgeous. They could make a film about vampires in spandex sitting there blowing their noses for ninety minutes and I'd watch it if Kate was in it. Biased. Yes, probably.

Bottom line - this film may be the forth instalment of the Underworld franchise, but it's still head, shoulders and biteable neck over the Resident *yawn* Evil films.

Somewhat Disappointing
Out of the 4 Underworld films, Awakening is the worst. Awakening is a good film but there are a couple of things that makes this one my least favorite and somewhat disappointing to me: One thing is Michael is not in the film and the first two films built Michael up to be a very important hybrid. Another disappointing thing is that the story lacks quite a bit -- it's just not as interesting as the other films (even with an added element: a daughter by Selene and Micheal). I also disliked the "super lycan" - that was just a bad (bunk) idea to me. Don't get me wrong Awakening is worth watching but it's just not as good as the first three films. Maybe I was just expecting something else from this 4th installment and that is why I was somewhat (but not completely) disappointed with this film.

7.5/10

Just below average
The movie offers decent action and cgi effect. Apart from that there is next to no character development and the story is so thinly spread that it feels like it only exists to connect fight sequences.

Where the first 3 Movies created some kind of atmosphere and offered some insight in the "Underworld" this one fails epically in those subjects

In addition to that the main actress only has one look to offer...emotionlessnes.

If you look for a cheap flick on rainy days it will probably suffice but not for anything else.

Its just disturbing how many studio reviewers try to over-hype the movie

Underworld: Awakening Delivers Excellent Bite!
My husband and I loved the previous "Underworld" movies and were really disappointed when we heard that "Kate" wasn't interested in doing another one. So, we had it in our minds that was the end of the franchise. As time went by I heard that there might be another movie. I had horrifying thoughts of the studio execs trying to fill the massive void with a ridiculous story and a different actress. Then I heard "Kate" decided to do it.

I usually approach any movie without ideas of what to expect and keep and open mind. I must admit that I was a bit nervous about this particular movie and could it/would it deliver? Would the storyline hold up?

WOW!! This movie delivers in all areas. Kate Beckinsale is amazing in the reprised role of Selene. She has lost none of her ability to capture the depth of this character. In true vampire form she portrays, she appears to be ageless, beautiful and forever young.

I have nothing bad to say about this movie at all. I felt nothing but entertained by the story and the characters. There are a few fresh faces that add amazing texture and thrill to this movie.

There are enough twists and turns to keep you wanting more. My husband and I left and we both agree that this might possibly be the best Underworld to date.

It is a must see!

not bad
i thought this movie was a little closer in tone to the original, even if nowhere near that great

the fast paced action and conspiracy on top of conspiracy was a lot closer to the original than the other sequels

although not a cinematic masterpiece, I enjoyed this more than any of the other sequels/prequels

i watched this movie at home and not at the theater, so maybe the so called CGI problems were not as problematic here

not sure what people were expecting, but i thought this was a good outing in general

while not a landmark of movie 3D, i thought it did make it more atmospheric and added depth in some cases

I wish i had seen at the cinema TBH :p

recommended :-)
