The 2003 action horror film Underworld.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

A young man who has pledged his life to helping others finds himself in a pitched battle between two gangs of supernatural villains in this blend of horror story and action thriller.

Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman) is a medical student who is heading home after a long day of school and work when he unexpectedly finds himself in the middle of what appears to be a rumble between two well turned-out street gangs.

What Michael doesn’t know is he has witnessed a skirmish between two deadly underground communities, unknown to the mortal world, who are battling for supremacy — the Death Dealers, a tribe of vampires, and the Lycans, a band of werewolves.

Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is a leading member of the Death Dealers who hears through the grapevine that the Lycans have plans to capture the aspiring doctor who witnessed their battle.

Certain something is in the air, Selene begins following Michael around the city, and she finds herself growing emotionally attached to him.

As Selene becomes more attracted to Michael, she becomes more convinced that the Lycans are planning a major attack against the Death Dealers, although vampire kingpin Kraven (Shane Brolly) is certain she’s crediting the Lycans with more intelligence than they can muster.

As Selene shadows Michael, she finds herself wanting to protect him, but her longing becomes a handicap when he’s attacked by Lucian (Michael Sheen), the leader of the werewolf community, and the man she wants to save has now become a sworn enemy.

Underworld was the first feature film from music video director Len Wiseman.

My Thoughts

This is probably my favorite Underworld movie so far, the Underworld movies are a guilty pleasure of mine I guess, it was my former male classmate DH who first got me watching this franchise years ago back when it first started.

Back when this movie came out we went to watch this movie in a movie theater, and we both watched the second (Underworld: Evolution) and third (Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans) movies in the franchise at movie theaters when they came out.

So going to watch Underworld movies in a movie theater is a tradition now I guess, and I have seen all of the Underworld movies in a movie theater so far.

I like the visuals of the Underworld movies with the color palette et cetera that just works, I like some of the acting and accents, I like Kate Beckinsale’s performances, and I like how vampires and lycans are portrayed compared to many other movies et cetera.

The end,

Underworld: Endless War is 2011 animated film and a collection of three short, tie-in stories whose creation was supervised by Len Wiseman, director of the first two Underworld films.

Each film tells a different story, and at different periods of history, to highlight new events of the Underworld mythology.

These stories also tell of what happened before the events in Underworld: Awakening (2012).

These shorts were released on December 20, 2011, as a part of the new Underworld Trilogy: The Essential Collection of Underworld, on Blu-ray.

Each episode is a little over five-minutes long.
