Underworld Awakening (2012)

Underworld the movie series has always been my favourite, and now with Underworld: Awakening in the cinemas I did not hesitate to catch this 4th installment of Underworld. This time, we decided to catch it in 3D in hopes of catching all the action in full 3D glory.

Picking up where the last Underworld movie left off, we see Kate Beckinsale reprising her role as Selene, the vampire with superior strength, speed and agility than the average vampire sending everything that comes in her way to oblivion. This time around, the Vampires on top of being in war with the Lycans have to deal with the Humans which have come to know of their existence and are hell-bent on sending the two species into extinction. Planning an escape to never never land with her lover Michael the hybrid, a turn of events sent Serene into a 12 year slumber in a cryogenic chamber.

Waking up 12 years later, Selene found herself in a world where the "purge" has passed, vampires and lycans alike have gone into hiding to flee from the humans. After being imprisoned in cryogenic suspension, Selene manages to escape the facility Antigen, headed by Dr. Jacob Lane (Stephen Rea) to find her lover Michael was nowhere to be found, instead in his place was her daughter Eve (India Eisley) who is also a hybrid.

Hunted down by the lycans, we see the introduction of a Super Lycan Quint (Kris Holden-Ried), a somewhat giant lycan with increased strength and an almost immediate healing rate. The rest were simply easy to follow plot and action. The action in Underworld 4: Awakening was gorier than the other series, and more more furious.

Personally I liked this movie, and wouldn't mind catching it again in the big screen again just for the cool Selene, and the action. Simple minded me love movies like these. My brother Ivan, had his say too, and his comment was that Selene from Underworld is way cooler than Alice from Resident Evil. The plot wasn't much to shout about though, as it was pretty straight forward and simple without much brain power needed. I would rate this an 8/10. The ending of Underworld Awakening gives a big sign that Underworld 5 will be coming up after this installment.
