The Underworld series has been quite a few resurrections and this fifth is no different. During the 13 years since its creation in 2003, the Underworld series has no doubt, had fiercely loyal fans. This one has all the regulated thrill, blood savoring and CGI punches of the past and it seems repetitive and tedious but the atmosphere and the sharply violent narrative jousts make it quite a rarefied experience.
Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) fights to end the eternal war between the Lycan Clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed ger. Selene on the run from Lycans and Vampire both. In the immediate prequel she had sent her daughter away, to keep her out of harms reach and she calims not to know where. The Lycans are getting together, plotting to annihilate the Vampire and the Vampires have little alternative but to accept Selebe’s offer of help.
Such stories (if they can be called that) rarely make sense. They are basically formulated around popular sentiment and gain extended life because of it. Vampire tearing through flesh, drinking blood while werewolves shed skin and shapeshift when required. Gore is available in plenty. The violence is breathtaking with Lycans getting split in half, their spines getting ripped off and vampires teleporting around, sporting useless weapons and becoming stronger because of it. Vampire politics are in the forefront here. Not everyone is in support of the amnesty given to Selene. Also there are gaps in the continuing story that make the ensuing action look predicative. Actors are dropped off without so much as an explanation (read Michael) and adds ons gain importance for reasons best known to the creators.
