Kate Bekinsale, is Selene, a vampire warrior who was caught and brought to a research laboratory. She was kept in a laboratory tank, in suspended captivity for twelve years. She is able to sense another presence and learns that she has a powerful daughter named Eve. The Lycans are trying to use her DNA to create a super species. Silver is one thing that can kill them and Eve has something in her make up that the Lycans can use to inoculate their members. 

Someone helps her escape this prison and she finds a world where humans have found about vampires and lycans and are in an all out war to eradicate both species.

There is excellent suspense as Selene is saved by a handsome actor who is a vampire and brings her to his hideaway.  There are battle scenes and lots of action.

For those looking for action adventure, this would be a good night by the TV.

The Original Death Dealer Returns To Fight A New War Against Humans and Lycans!
I’ve been a fan of the “Underworld” film franchise since it came to light some years ago. I mean, Kate Beckinsale would be enough to draw me into any film, but the story arc of the series have had ambition and for the most part, it knew where it wanted to go. Admittedly, the franchise really isn‘t awesome and “Evolution” was a step back in the stories, but the recent “Rise of the Lycans” proved to be the best one in the series since the original. Now, …

Star Rating:         The fact that I liked Underworld: Awakening says more about me than it does about the filmmakers. I have to admit that up front, for I want you to read this review all the way to the end. From my perspective, the first and second chapters of the series were needlessly complicated and nearly impossible to keep pace with. The prequel film, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, was much more palatable, not only because it achieved the right look for the …

Caption
Kate Beckinsale returns as the vampire-warrioress Selene. This time, the stakes are bigger and goes beyond the war with the Lycans--this time time, the enemy is the planet's most dominant race: Humanity.      Sporting more advanced special effects and more polished editing tricks, "Underworld Awakening" goes further into its mythos, and this time, Selene is very angry.      See full review here.
