Product Description

Amazon.ca

Kate Beckinsale returns to death-dealing in the fourth installment of the Underworld saga (she took a break for Part Three, the Underworld: Rise of the Lycans prequel). Still clad in black-leather Goth gear, still capable of absorbing an enormous amount of punishment, Beckinsale's vampiric avenger Selene gets put on ice (literally) as Underworld: Awakening begins, and thaws out 12 years later in her customary foul mood. The scruffy survivors--vampire and werewolf alike--of a societal "cleansing" are still at odds, and a young girl holds the key to… oh, the future of mankind, or whatever. Say this for the feeble plot of this movie: at least it's not insanely complicated with centuries of history. How can it be, with a running time that (accounting for 10 minutes of end credits) lasts about 77 minutes? That's plenty of time for super-slick Swedish directors Mårlind & Stein to stage a nonstop series of fighting scenes, each as meaningless as the last, although one can't deny the effort put in to making lycans disintegrate or creating showers of silver dust. In supporting roles, Stephen Rea and Charles Dance look sheepish about collecting their paychecks. The idea of Selene experiencing feelings is raised, even if Beckinsale mostly goes the robotic route; if you can prove her performance wasn't computer-generated, you deserve some kind of prize. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars Underworld Awakening (3D) July 6 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
What can I say,,, I adore Kate! Sexy and captivating! I have thoroughly enjoyed the previous Underworld movies and had to purchase this one in 3D for my collection! A good story with lots of action, very slick production and awesome visuals! You may not be a fan of this genre but you will probably enjoy this movie, almost as much as I did!..................

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It followed any expectation I had for this series. The 3d effects were not overwhelming but added to to realism of the feature. Anyone who is a fan of the underworld series should enjoy this film

5.0 out of 5 stars Beckinsale Gets It Right! June 14 2014
Format:DVD
Definitely the best movie of the lot. Three tries over almost ten years (she was not in "Rise of the Lycans") Kate Beckinsale finally lives up to her potential to become the most iconic, the most stylized female vampire in film history. Selene is awesome! You wouldn't doubt for a moment her six hundred years of experience, fighting Lycans, humans and fellow vampires. She has seen it all and done it all yet still retains a sense of integrity and an aura of nobility. She claims, "I'm a fighter, not a leader." But in her world who else is left, who better than Selene to take on the mantle of saviour for the dwindling and dying vampire covens? I look forward to the fifth instalment.

J'ai adoré la série des Underworld, je les écoute souvent (1 a 2 fois par année) en rafale. J'ai déjà hâte à la suite.....il faut qu'il y ait une suite. Selene est spendide comme d'habitude ne manquait que Michael!

3.0 out of 5 stars Kate Beckinsale returns with a vegeance. Dec 21 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Almost hitting 40 years-old, Kate Beckinsale truly doesn't show it. She looks as if she only started the franchise two or three years ago.

The movie can't feel the same way though. At the end of the second movie, it seemed like vampires were back to human and could face the sun... so unless I'm missing something, there's no way to really know how she became vampire again. Plus, the movie lasts an all too-short 90-some minutes, which makes it look rushed and far lower budgeted than expected.

Special features are nice and contain production featurettes, previews, interviews, deleted scenes and commentary.

In terms of movies, this is, for my taste, the second to last in quality and fun. Although Kate is as beautiful as she ever was and seeing her put on the vinyl suit once more is a true joy and worth watching for that alone.

What can I say? This movie is great. Kate Beckinsale rocks!! Hard to believe this is the same actress that starred in Serendipity. The movie has awesome 3D effects and lots of action. I am very happy with this movie.
