On a weekend where virtually every film is flawed yet entertaining this is one film that is simply flawed.

A pale woman in a vinyl catsuit opened fire indiscriminately today. Among the casualties were Plot and Consistency. She should be considered armed and extremely British.

[Kate] Beckinsale doesn't seem very interested in being in the film.

... seems both stripped down in complexity for a new audience as well as cut into a bite-sized chunk to more easily swallow... neither of which is going to draw new fans to the franchise or keep current fans interested.

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

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

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.
