Trivia

While previous entries in the series had a distinctly eastern European flavor to them, this film has Scandinavian touches with a Nordic vampire coven and characters with names like "Marius", "Lena" and "Vidar" which are very popular in Norway and Sweden. See more »

Goofs

(at around 36 mins) One of the vampires is seen welding the gate back on. Arc welding gives of very high amounts of UV rays so this would have killed him and anyone else nearby. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Selene: I was an elite soldier in the vampire army. A Death Dealer. And I was good at it. But I was betrayed.

The Plot .. Is Not
9 February 2017 | by paraduxSee all my reviews

In the 2006 film CLICK (a throwback to a strange era when Adam Sandler was considered one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood) a very hammy Chris Walken, playing the Devil, takes a moment to tell Sandler (playing the husband) of Beckinsale, in all seriousness, and with a straight face, "Your wife is smoking hot." Which in a nutshell explains the staying power of Underworld I, a film I have seen perhaps 8 times so far. It combined a kickass script with great action sequences and featured Kate as perhaps the sexiest vampire in film history.

Flash forward through several sequels (too many) and we still have Kate ... but little else. One of the worse scripts in recent memory, so bad it verily fails the late Roger Ebert's "20 minute test" (if a film fails to hook up in the first 20 minutes, leave the theatre).

Horrible story, horrible characters, and overall a pretty rotten movie.

Advice -- go see the first one all over again. You'll thank me in the morning,
