Underworld: Blood Wars (2017)



Critic Consensus: Underworld: Blood Wars delivers another round of the stylized violence that the series is known for, but -- like many fifth franchise installments -- offers precious little of interest to the unconverted.

All Critics (75) | Top Critics (12)

Possibly the nail in the coffin of this dreary vampire series.

Coming off a long overdue reunion with Whit Stillman in the Jane Austen adaptation Love & Friendship, Kate Beckinsale returns here to the role that has been wasting her gifts as a comic actor for going on 14 years.

For the most part, there's little to care about: Semira surfaces as the one potential source of campy fun in the film, but she's quickly ground down by the story machinations, and the fight scenes are so choppily edited that they barely register at all.

This film is so heavy with exposition that you would think that the director, Anna Foerster, and the screenwriter, Cory Goodman, had set out to complete a dissertation instead of a sequel.

While the film may justify its title in terms of the viscera on display, it is badly in need of a funny bone.

Whatever's vibrating on your phone is more interesting than what's onscreen.

Audience Reviews for Underworld: Blood Wars

If I had a dollar to every time a person on this planet wants to see every Underworld film from the first to this, I'd have a small loan of a million dollars. Guess what I would want to do with that small loan? Laugh it up to the millions of failures upon these people that have expected these films to be great and tell them not to watch another Underworld film ever again.

Underworld: Blood Wars is my first film of the Underworld series, and thankfully, my last. It's just another joyless CGI-fueled film lacking in plot, and churned out by film studios to milk its fan base. I'd pass on this one.

Visually has a lot of the things Underworld is known for, but in terms of quality? Well if you liked Awakening, you'll like this. Because they're basically the same film. I for one liked neither.
