Trivia

Peter Andersson's character is called "Vidar", which is the modern Swedish form of the Old Norse god "Vithar". In Norse mythology, Vithar is the son of Odin and destined to kill the monstrous wolf Fenrir at Ragnarök. The naming is therefore an obvious allusion to Vidar's role in the film as an enemy of the lycans. See more »

Goofs

Before the Lycans invade the Eastern Coven, Varga is seen handing David a magazine with glowing bullets. The glowing bullets are UV tipped for Vampires. They should have been loading silver bullets for Lycans. See more »

Worst Underworld movie
22 February 2017 | by SilentEyes_See all my reviews

These movies were never made for Oscar consideration, I understand that, but the first three at least tried something. Creating some kind of mythology, war between vampires and lycans. Solid concept for the fans of these types of films that offer a bit of story and focus more on action and gore. First Underworld, released back in 2003, is pretty solid action-horror film. Sequel, Underworld: Evolution expanded the origin story for these species, while Underworld: Rise of the Lycans served as prequel, giving us idea how and why the whole grudge between vampires and lycans started. Then came 4th film, Awakening, solid concept but lame execution. Very forgettable film, even for Underworld fans. And now we have Blood Wars, 5th and worst in the franchise. Nothing in this movie works. Action, the strongest point in these types of films, was so poorly edited and is completely boring. Overall, movie is so badly directed and edited, filled with lame dialogue and shameful acting. Even the effects were not that great, with so many cringe worthy moments. Such a disaster.
