After taking an episode off Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is back. The Vampires and Lycans are in a new world in which their kind are being hunted and killed by humans in large numbers; they are being "purged". Even with a purge and the existence of Vampires and Lycans being public knowledge it hasn't stopped the feud between the species.
Awakening is a refreshing Underworld in that it brings us back to present day and brings back the super-"death dealer", Selene. Her skills are on full display throughout with an array of weapons. She faces some incredible odds and expertly defies them time and again.

It was no longer a confined fight between Vampires and Lycans existing in a vacuum. Awakening was action-packed with a cool story.
