Product Description

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch this film, and then enjoy its sequel :) Jan. 8 2007
By M. B. Alcat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I watched "Underworld" at the cinema quite a long time ago, despite the fact that the critics had dissed it. I think that critics have a tendency to believe that every movie should give food for thought, whereas I believe that some films that only offer good entertainment should be given a chance, too. At that time, and after some gruelling exams, I was in the mood for some uncomplicated fun, and "Underworld" gave me just that.

I hadn't heard from the director, Len Wiseman, but I must say he did an excellent job with this dark action film that features vampires and werewolves (lycans) fighting a 1000 year war against each other and amid the humans. The story is entertaining and original, something that you will appreciate even more if you have the chance of watching this dvd with the extended cut.

One of the main characters in "Underworld" is Selene (Kate Beckinsale), a vampire and a Deathdealer (that is, someone who hunts and kills lycans). Selene discovers some lycans hunting a mortal, Michael (Scott Speedman), and gets curious. Why are them after him? Of course, everything the lycans want, Selene will have, so she decides to find Michael. By choosing to do so, she will discover a vast conspiracy, the truth about her past, and a forbidden love.

If you are fond of unconventional action movies, and don't think they need to be realistic, you are likely to love this movie. If that is the case, try to watch it soon, because the sequel will be released on January 20, and from what I could see in the trailer, "Underworld: evolution" will be great. So, don't wait, GO and buy or rent it now :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Beckinsale is great! Sept. 4 2004
Blade was interesting, but to me it failed emotionally. You just do not connect with the film on the personal level. The effects were super, but that was the main impact..."wow what amazing effects". You feel like breaking out in a chorus of Peggy Lee's Is That All There Is. Special effects alone cannot make a movie great.
Underworld makes that jump, great FX work, but also gives you characters you really care about, ones that you really love to hate. A strong plot line designed to hook you and keep you, just does that. With the emotional involvement, there is a greater impact, a movie that will demand repeat viewing. Instant Cult Status.
The movie grabs you from the opening and never lets up with the pace. Firm direction and with a driving score, the movie reaches for perfection. You have a 1000-year-old war between Lycons and Vampires, and it's all coming to a head. It's a well thought out and executed premise and Kate Beckinsale shines! She is an amazing talent. I first adored her work in Cold Comfort Farm as Robert Post's child Flora. When you compare that gentle, deft bit of humour with this kick a*** vampire hunter, it proves what an overlooked talent she is. With Van Helsing out now (and I am sure this movie led to her landing the role), she is finally getting a spotlight she so well deserves.
A gloomy, atmospheric ambiance to the whole movie is maintained all the way through, adding a strong foundation for the otherworld premise. I am sure some will nitpick things, as all vampire film faces, but kudos for the vibrant energy and sheer edgy feel to the film.
It leaves you hanging, clearly open for a sequel...one can but hope it maintains this high quality.
Kate rocks...you don't need to know anymore! It has about 13 minutes of footage not in the original. A great battle scene and some backstory on Michael. Rounds out the film nicely without dragging it down.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute tedium from start to finish! June 16 2004
By SeaWasp
A stupid, dull, talky, non-action flick aimed at pseudo trendy d*ckheads. It's hard to describe in words how boring this piece of Gothic tripe is. As for the "Fangs and Fiction" 45-minute doco. If you are expecting a crackerjack, supercool documentary on vampires and werewolves throughout cinema history incorporating the beasties from Hammer, Amicus, Universal, Columbia, etc. studios... FORGET IT! Aside from very brief snippets of Lugosi, Max Schreck (Nosferatu), and footage from UNDERWORLD, all you get is interviews with modern-day weirdos who think they are vampires and werewolves (the brain-dead as opposed to the UNdead) and people who have seen werewolves around the corner from their house, and vampires in cemeteries. Oh yeah, some ditzy Dutch deejay with ample body piercing and tattoos who figures he is a vampire and regrets the fact that he can't discuss blood-drinking with de common folk. Also a Goth bimbo who will have us believe that she only drinks the blood of "special" people (Non-smokers and vegetarians?). They wear an insignia around their scrawny necks that identifies them to like-minded bores. Then there's the guy named "Gypsy" who actually turns into a werewolf but he wont do it on camera because it is too tiring! Ummmm....YEAH! Change hands,Gypsy!! This is a never-watch-again featurette that is an insult to people with even ONE working brain cell. Somebody seemed to forget that vampires and werewolves are creatures of myth, legend and superstition. There is a heap of informative stuff about the making of this piece of cinematic doggy-doo (probably more than you need) in a very attractive package. It's what dvd is all about but more than THIS turkey deserves. Read more ›
