TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

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.

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

½

Although I enjoyed it just as much as the others my rating is lower as Underworld just seems to do what do many sequels have done before which is go round in circles with the story to the point where it's basically the same plot we have already seen, Having said that the action was the best yet in the series with some pretty good effects that really make the film as good as it was, I can't comment on the 3D as I watched the 2D version but I don't think it would of been worth paying extra for, It won't gain any new fans but fans of the previous films will enjoy it even if the plot does sound very familiar to us.

This film was better than the last one but and also builds on the last one. It's a good thing they quickly recap the entire franchise at the beginning or else no one would know what is going on in this film unless they binge watched the franchise before viewing this one. It is much of the same where Vampires and Lycans are curious about a hybrid of the two and yet again Selene gets more powers that make her even more invincible (which if you've seen all the films in this franchise you'd guess she is already more powerful than any one already). This film was okay but I would recommend checking it out only if you want to complete the franchise.

Underworld: Blood Wars is a film that is 5 years past the 6-year point where people stopped caring for this franchise in the first place. If you can't put together more than 77 minutes of a plot for a film, then just save your money for something else like a new Resident Evil movie...Blood Wars is a straight to DVD sequel pretending to be a big Hollywood release and the fact it was released in January, the graveyard of cinema, proves that. Don't waste $12 and an hour of your time on this.
