For people who have grown tired of “Twilight” and the touchy-feely love story, watch a movie that also has vampires and werewolves but has more action that make your eyes pop out of the screen.
The first“Underworld” film was created in 2003; the movie was basically about a secret war between vampires and werewolves. In “Underworld” the vampire warrior Salene, while loyal to the vampires, falls in love with Michael, who is a werewolf, and hopes to end the war. Kate Beckinsale plays the role of Salene as a bullet-shooting, werewolf-killing temptress. Beckindale also shows the romantic side of herself to Scott Speedman who plays the role of Michael the werewolf.
The second installment of the “Underworld” series shows the relationship between Michael and Salene as a team and a couple. The third installment of “Underworld” explains how the war between the vampires and werewolves began.
The filmmakers have made a fourth installment called “Underworld: Awakening.” Kate Beckinsale comes back again as the vampire warrior Salene, wakes up from a coma and discovers she had been captured; she escaped from a facility run by humans. Unlike any other “Underworld” movies, humans have discovered the existence of vampires and werewolves, making this “Underworld” movie pretty interesting.
This installment of “Underworld” seems completely different since it’s a whole new world that includes a new war and a new breed. What also makes this movie interesting is that this is the first “Underworld” movie to be shot in 3D.
“Underworld: Awakening” will be in theaters on January 20, so watch the trailer, get hyped up and wait for the movie to pop your eyes out.
