Underworld: Awakening Reviews

February 1, 2012
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.

Selene's return is a welcome one.
January 23, 2012
Once again, Beckinsale brings an impressive physicality and subzero cool to her portrayal of Selene.
January 23, 2012
Kate Beckinsale's "Selene" remains one-note, but it's a wildly entertaining note.
January 22, 2012
The combat quotient, to the movie's credit, is way up, with narrative folderol kept to a minimum.
January 21, 2012
The most generic entry of the bunch.
January 21, 2012
There's not much to this movie beyond a slick procession of dark, gleaming violence.
January 21, 2012
A brisk creature-feature that ditches the series' dreary mythology in favor of a more direct, action-oriented approach.
January 21, 2012
Beckinsale's Selene is back with a vengeance, that famous black catsuit and two fully cocked pistols, having wisely sat out the wretched third installment of the franchise. Don't expect much more than this.
January 21, 2012
with Awakening, the vampires-vs-werewolves Underworld franchise has finally decayed beyond the point of repair.
January 20, 2012
The only thing that manages to outpace Underworld: Awakening's ineptitude is its utter soullessness.
January 20, 2012
The entire production is single-mindedly, earnestly devoted to serving up feats of BADASS, and it succeeds in this devotion to the exclusion of everything else.
January 20, 2012
[The] latest, dreadful entry in the vampires-battling-werewolves franchise.
January 20, 2012
Crude, cheap and pointless, this surely drives a stake through the heart of the 'Underworld' franchise.
January 20, 2012
Not a complete disaster, but also not the vampire / werewolf mash we've always wanted.
January 20, 2012
Of all the movies whose makers designate them as crap by not screening them in advance for critics, forcing me to go to a multiplex in vampire hours and write a review in a sour overnight stupor, Underworld Awakening is one of the best.
January 20, 2012
Watching the film is strangely like looking at the same three still frames of supernatural battles over and over for 90 minutes.
January 20, 2012
Murky and perpetually bluish in tinge, Underworld: Awakening does and gets little with the 3-D in which it's being offered, and ends by shamelessly setting up a further and fatally unnecessary installment.
January 20, 2012
It's not awful enough to be considered truly dreadful but it's just shockingly asleep for a movie subtitled "Awakening."
January 20, 2012
More aggressively violent and thankfully less mythology-driven than previous installments, Underworld: Awakening is strictly for the converted.
