Beckinsale/Speedman ~ Underworld
Blade meets The Crow and The Matrix in Underworld, a hybrid thriller that rewrites the rulebook on werewolves and vampires. It's a "cuisinart" movie (blend a lot of familiar ideas and hope something interesting happens) in which immortal vampire "death dealers" wage an ancient war against "Lycans" (werewolves), who've got centuries of revenge--and some rather ambitious genetic experiments--on their lycanthropic agenda. Given his preoccupation with gloomy architecture (mostly filmed in Budapest, Hungary), frenetic mayhem and gothic costuming, it's no surprise that first-time director Len Wiseman gained experience in TV commercials and the art departments of Godzilla, Men in Black, and Independence Day. His work is all surface, no substance, filled with derivative, grand-scale action as conflicted vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale, who later became engaged to Wiseman) struggles to rescue an ill-fated human (Scott Speedman) from Lycan transformation. It's great looking all the way, and a guaranteed treat for horror buffs, who will eagerly dissect its many strengths and weaknesses. --Jeff Shannon

I THINK THE MAIN REASON WHY PEOPLE DIDNT LIKE THIS MOVIE WAS THAT THEY JUST DIDNT UNDERSTAND IT. ITS INDEED VERY COMPLICATED AND MAYBE A LITTLE DEEPER THAN MOST WILL EXPECT. Read morePublished on Aug. 20 2004 by jason
I have to admit that I was not impressed by the trailers and previews shown months b4 the release.
In fact I had to be dragged by my significant other to see this. Read more
And I'll say it again:
What a STUPID movie!
At first it looks rather good when you look at the dvdbox. You would expect something like Batman mixed with the Matrix. Read more
