‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ Review

13 January 2017 12:54 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Kate Beckinsale, Theo James, Lara Pulver, Tobias Menzies, Charles Dance, James Faulkner, Peter Andersson, Clementine Nicholson, Bradley James, Daisy Head, Oliver Stark | Written by Cory Goodman | Directed by Anna Foerster

It’s been some five years since the last entry into the Underworld franchise – Underworld: Awakening, the third sequel to the 2003 original – no doubt because that film almost, Almost killed the series…. However as the saying goes, time heals and in the case of these movies that seems to be true. Not only has it been long enough for audiences to forget the risible fourth film, but the break in production also seems to have revitalised the filmmakers too – and this time round we have a film that truly lives up to the “vampires vs. werewolves” premise proffered so many years ago.

Whilst the politics and power-struggle machinations of Underworld: Blood Wars make this story feel overly complex, hence »

‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ review: “One purely for hardcore fans”

11 January 2017 8:03 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Underworld Blood Wars review: Kate Beckinsale returns for the fifth film in the popular franchise, but is there still a thirst for this vampire/ werewolf action-horror feast?

Read our full Underworld Blood Wars review below.

Kate Beckinsale returns for the latest in the long-running and extremely popular horror-action series, the fifth (!) in the series, Underworld Blood Wars, a film that quite literally does everything that it says on the tin – bloody violence and stylised action drenched in moody, moonlit-blue hues.

This time around, Kate Beckinsale‘s death dealer Selene, once again finds herself caught in the middle of the continuing war between the vampire and the Lycans. After banishing her daughter to the unknown to protect her, Selene is enticed back to the vampire clan to train a future army of blood-suckers. There, things aren’t exactly what they first seem, and she immediately runs into the mysterious Semira (Lara Pulver »

Underworld: Blood Wars review

10 January 2017 8:02 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Underworld 5 certainly has its problems. But it's a whole lot of fun...

If you’ve seen any of the previous four Underworld movies, you probably think you know what to expect from the latest instalment. And lord knows you’d be entirely right. A never-ending war between vampires and werewolves? Check. Post-Matrix gunplay? Of course. More leather outfits than the after party at London Alternative Market? Without a doubt. So why should you care at all about the latest in this aggressively generic franchise?

Well, that depends. Do you like fun? Because that’s what I find myself having here.

I know, I know. 'This movie is fun' is often a way of saying 'This movie is demonstrably bad if you think about it, so can we just not think about it so I don’t admit I like something stupid?' And while that may be partly true here, »

Movie Review – Underworld: Blood Wars (2017)

10 January 2017 7:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Underworld: Blood Wars, 2017.

Directed by Anna Foerster.

Starring Kate Beckinsale, Theo James, Charles Dance, Tobias Menzies, Lara Pulver, James Faulkner, Peter Andersson, Bradley James, Daisy Head and Clementine Nicholson.

Synopsis:

Underworld: Blood Wars follows Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) as she fends off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. With her only allies, David (Theo James) and his father Thomas (Charles Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.

A film shouldn’t have to start with a “previously on.” A film shouldn’t have to start with a “previously on” then continue to play out as a “previously on” with dialogue existing only as an expositional device to reinforce it’s existence as a “previously on.” A film should not; 20, 40, 60 minutes in drop in a further »

Underworld: Blood Wars Review

10 January 2017 6:33 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Daniel Goodwin

The last time we saw Kate Beckinsale’s blood-sucking, wolf-slaying, blade swishing Selene she was battling a digital were-blob in a car park at the arse end of Underworld: Awakening: the abominable third sequel which belted the franchise into apparent oblivion. Failing to keep her promise of reclaiming the world from Lycans, made during Awakening’s tepid finale, Selene vanished from our screens. Five years later and following a staggering turn in Love and Friendship, Kate Beckinsale returns, back on autopilot, into her comfort zone and to the role that made her famous. While half a decade can’t quite waft away the stench of its putrid predecessor, Underworld: Blood Wars is surprisingly decent and easily the best of the franchise so far.

Elite soldier Selene is living as an outcast with defector/ pseudo beau David (Theo James), hunted by Lycans and the fifteen century old »

Underworld: Blood Wars review: another kinky yet bloodless vampire punch-up

10 January 2017 3:58 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Kate Beckinsale casts off the kudos of classy costume drama Love & Friendship to slip back into black leather for a fifth time

A persistent surreal silliness lends some interest to this latest film in the interminable Underworld action vampire-horror franchise series: the fifth, in fact. It’s the franchise that simply refuses to die.

Kate Beckinsale reprises her kinkily black-leather-clad role of the vampire Selene. She and the other vampires are now threatened by the lupine Lycans, who do lots of CGI transformation from human to beast and back again. They are led by the malign Marius (Tobias Menzies); Selene has on her side the hunky creature of the shadows David (Theo James), yet faces treachery of the outrageously décolleté sort from Semira (Lara Pulver), who is rocking a series of revealing outfits. Charles Dance comes on, selling his preposterous lines with absolute conviction and professionalism and giving everything a residual Game-of-Thrones vibe. »

Rogue One Wins 4th Weekend in a Row at the Box Office

8 January 2017 1:15 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most box office prognosticators presumed that Disney and LucasFilm's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would have no trouble winning the last few weeks of 2016, along with the first few weeks of 2016. So far, that prediction has come true, with the Star Wars spin-off winning the last three weeks of 2016, and now the first weekend of 2017, but just barely. Rogue One came out on top with $21.9 million, just barely beating Hidden Figures which expanded nationwide to earn $21.8 million. Since these movies are so close together, they may switch places when the actual figures are released tomorrow, but we'll have to want and see.

Box Office Mojo reports that the only new movie opening in wide release, Underworld 5, starring Kate Beckinsale as Selene, opened in 3,070 theaters, which is much higher than the estimated 2,300 theaters it was expected to open in, with Hidden Figures expanding into 2,471 theaters, an increase of 2,446 theaters.

Underworld: Blood Wars Review

7 January 2017 9:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For 13 years we’ve been caught in the middle of Kate Beckinsale’s Lycan-hunting warfare, a streamlined franchise that’s sustained many tests of time, especially Beckinsale’s ageless taking to vampire purity. I wondered who dared asked for a fifth chapter in this R-rated Twilight for adults, and I was answered by a moderately full NYC movie theater audience, who hooted and hollered as Selene waged bloody retribution against both hairy and pale factions. People turned out for what’s essentially an H&M Bdsm orgy that’s interrupted by werewolves before any hanky panky can begin – but was their perseverance rewarded? By the grace of Nosferatu, Underworld: Blood Wars could have been way, Way worse. I’ll admit that.

As previously noted, Beckinsale once again returns as the famed “Death Dealer” Selene. Even with no memory of her daughter Eve’s whereabouts, she’s still hunted by Lycan »

'Underworld: Blood Wars' Review: Why Won't This Vampire Franchise Die Already?

6 January 2017 12:22 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The new movie year has just gifted us with its first indisputable film fiasco. Don't you just love January – the official burial ground for Hollywood cinematic sins against art and entertainment. Ok, my expectations were low for Underworld: Blood Wars. But scraping bottom would be a step up for this fifth chapter in the series, which inexplicably retains a loyal box-office following. Go figure. It was less than a year ago that Kate Beckinsale was giving the performance of her career in Whit Stillman’s gorgeously literate Love & Friendship. Now »

Film Review: ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’

6 January 2017 11:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s always fun to see a classy, venerable British actor grunge it up by letting himself be cast in the role of a real black-leather badass. In last year’s “Green Room,” Patrick Stewart did reasonably well as the leader of a backwoods-biker white-supremacist cult (though he did kind of come off as the nicest hater you’d ever seen). Now, in “Underworld: Blood Wars,” the fifth installment of the vampires-kick-ass action horror series, Charles Dance, fresh from “Game of Thrones” and movies like “The Imitation Game,” shows up as a Vampire elder, and from the moment he strolls into the coven castle in his long black coat, looming over everyone with a look of extreme arrogance that says, “I am so bored by all of you that ripping your throats out would provide me with great relief,” he isn’t playing. Stewart, in “Green Room,” communicated that he »

Review: Underworld: Blood Wars Offers Up a Thrilling Mix of New and Old

6 January 2017 9:01 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Being a big fan of the Underworld series, I’ve been anxiously awaiting Selene’s return to the big screen after four long years, and thankfully, that wait comes to an end with the release of Underworld: Blood Wars this weekend. For the most part, my patience was rewarded, as there’s a lot of fun stuff to be found in Blood Wars. Although the film does have its share of issues (more on that later), by and large, Kate Beckinsale’s “badass as usual” re-emergence as everyone’s favorite Death Dealer is highly enjoyable, and director Anna Foerster does a great job infusing this latest chapter with enthralling action sequences that rank among some of my favorite fights yet from the Underworld franchise.

Blood Wars picks up after the events of 2012’s Underworld: Awakening. Selene has had to say goodbye to her hybrid daughter, Eve (India Eisley), after sending »

A Monster Calls, Hidden Figures and Underworld top Tanner's What to Watch weekend preview!A Monster Calls, Hidden Figures and Underworld top Tanner's What to Watch weekend preview!Tanner Zipchen1/6/2017 9:12:00 Am

This weekend, a boy finds a friend in a giant monster, Kate Beckinsale returns to the underworld, and, what might just be the coolest use of math (or at least in a movie!).

Felicity Jones has had a busy couple of months at the box office! First we saw her in Inferno with Tom Hanks, then she stole those famous Death Star plans in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now now she's playing a terminally ill mother in A Monster Calls. This was one of the most intriguing movies I previewed at Tiff last year as it beautifully blends real-life, raw emotion, with a fantasy world where Liam Neeson voices a talking tree-monster.
