It really adds nothing to the already dull mythos of the vampires war with the lycans...

As stylish and flashy as the action is this time around, I can still only recommend Underworld: Awakening to diehard fans of the series.

This was a film that was so soulless and so lifeless that it had not made a single bit of impact while it was playing.

if you are looking for an intelligent movie you may need to look elsewhere.

Underworld: Awakening boasts some fun stylized action, and Kate Beckinsale back in that skin-tight outfit, but it also continues the franchise's streak of frustrating mediocrity.

What begins as a promising reset ultimately settles into a too much of a retread, however watchable it may be.

... a blur of generic exposition, random plot twists, vaguely maternal instincts, sloppy CGI animation, and Stephen Rea looking like a waxwork ...

We can never tire of watching Kate Beckinsale prance about in that tight leather outfit I tell ya. Never!

If you just accept this one as a bloody popcorn movie and don't look for much complexity, you'll undoubtedly be happy with it.

Pitiless, puerile, pointless and perfunctory -- and those are just the "P's."

Awakening has the mentality of a straight-to-video sequel, the body of an ADD child and the pulsing veins of a meth addict.

he vampires and werewolves are at it again. No, Twihards, you haven't missed another "Twilight" episode. This is indeed part of a franchise, but a far different, more violent one.

I don't think this was meant to be funny, but I found it pretty darn amusing.

Also missing... most of the so-called Lycans who, their appearance in a few respectable action sequences notwithstanding, are now nearly extinct. So is this franchise.

A sloppy, messy, frankly dumb action/horror hybrid, but at least it moves quickly and delivers the goods.

There's even an Evanescence track to close proceedings, for God's sake.

UNDERWORLD AWAKENING is definitely gory, but someone forgot to also make it scary, exciting, sexy, and/or fun.

It's too soon to name the worst movie of 2012, but this one sets the bar pretty high -- er, low.
