A short review of "Underworld: Blood Wars" (2016)
17 April 2017 | by ericrnolanSee all my reviews

I'm not sure what to say about "Underworld: Blood Wars" (2016). It really differs little from the previous "Underworld" movies. If you've seen those, you've kinda seen this one.

The vampires look like underwear models, or maybe a goths-only high school drama club. The werewolves look … not homeless, exactly, but like burly, long-haired, unemployed grunge rockers. Both groups speak portentously and repeatedly about things like "LINEAGE" and "BLOOD LINES" and "THE WAR" and "AMELIA." (Who was Amelia again?) There are the requisite betrayals and forbidden inter-species romances. The entire thing felt like a feature-length music video.

Maybe I'm being too harsh. I would actually give this film a 5 out of 10 for at least bringing some good things to the table. Kate Beckinsale is a good actress, and she brings the same magnetism that she always does to Selene, the franchise's protagonist. Charles Dance is always superb, and is always fun to watch. (There are at least two "Game of Thrones" alumni here — one is Dance as a vampire elder, and the other is Tobias Menzies as the leader of the "Lycans.") The nicest surprise, though, was seeing Lara Pulver as an ambitious vampire alpha female — fans of "Sherlock" (2010 – 2017) will recognize her as that series' incarnation of Irene Adler. She's a great actress, and she seems to relish this kind of role.

All in all, though, I can't say I actually recommend this.
