Underworld

Kate Beckinsale single-handedly brings style and sexy back to a vampire genre that had become as cold and lifeless as its character. Selene (Beckinsale) is a Death Dealer assigned to hunt down Lycans, (werewolves) the mortal enemies of the Vampire clans that live in secret amongst humans. Screenwriter Danny McBride and director Len Wiseman new and interesting interpretations of these Gothic characters create a new hybrid-breed of fans because they mix horror, mystery, and science fiction together, but it is Beckinsale’s timeless beauty and killer instincts that attract audiences to this blood feud. The Lycans believe they can defeat the vampires with the blood of Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman). Underworld’s story matches its style, but I must admit I was very disappointed with the film’s much-anticipated climax.

    Actually, I really liked this movie. Agree that the fight scene at the end could have been better, but everything else was great. I actually own this.
