Against the backdrop of an unseen centuries-old war between the sophisticated Vampire clan and the brutish clan of lycanthropes, the Lycans, the lethally alluring vampire assassin and member of the elite "Death Dealers" squad, Selene, has devoted her existence to eradicating the earth's scattered pockets of remaining werewolves.

Fantastic film about facing between vampires and werewolves
The movie deals with vampires and werewolves , each other taking on , vampires led by Kate Beckinsale and wolves ruled by Michael Sheen . There is a third starring Scott Speedman, a human whose blood has a terrible secret .
Both groups ,vampires and wolves will confront to obtain their purposes , the fighting will be to death.
The film blends horror ,suspense, struggles , rip-roaring action, thrills, and a little bit of gore and guts.
Set design is of first class , settings are stylized , Gothic buildings, shading slums , all of them originate a spooky and ghoulish atmosphere.
Specials effects are breathtaking , part is made by means of computer generator and part by make-up.
Cinematography is glimmer likeness to stirring soundtrack however has too much rock music and little symphonic music.
Kate Beckinsale is wonderful , she is a true action warrior women, Scott Speedman is nice but is shaded for her.
The flick will appeal to emotion buffs and spooky action lovers.
Rating: 7/10 , good . Well worth seeing.
