A pale woman in a vinyl catsuit opened fire indiscriminately today. Among the casualties were Plot and Consistency. She should be considered armed and extremely British.

[Kate] Beckinsale doesn't seem very interested in being in the film.

As stylish and flashy as the action is this time around, I can still only recommend Underworld: Awakening to diehard fans of the series.

This was a film that was so soulless and so lifeless that it had not made a single bit of impact while it was playing.

if you are looking for an intelligent movie you may need to look elsewhere.

It's hard to get over the feeling that fans are being cheated with a film designed to extract the admission fee from their wallets whilst offering very little in return.

There's even an Evanescence track to close proceedings, for God's sake.

Hopefully next time the filmmakers will throw enough cash Scott Speedman's way so that they won't have to resort to these cheap tactics to distend their hokey mythology.

Yet more vampire vs werewolf battles from the fang franchise that is even more boring than Twilight. Strictly for completists.

If you came for RealD 3-D throat ripping and gunshots to the head, you might leave somewhat satisfied. More likely, you'll just want Ibuprofen and a refund. (Full Content Parental Review also available)

Pitiless, puerile, pointless and perfunctory -- and those are just the "P's."
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

It's not awful, merely functional and lacking an identity now that the lore of previous entries has been abandoned.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is coming out later this year, right? So at least this will only be the 2nd worst vampire vs. werewolf movie of 2012.

Kate Beckinsale looks great and she certainly can "off" werewolves like nobody's business. But, the "Underworld" films are all pretty much alike, lots of action with a throwaway story. "Awakening" is no different. Paul Chambers, CNN.

A sloppy, messy, frankly dumb action/horror hybrid, but at least it moves quickly and delivers the goods.

Murky and perpetually bluish in tinge, Underworld: Awakening does and gets little with the 3-D in which it's being offered, and ends by shamelessly setting up a further and fatally unnecessary installment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10

Surprise! Underworld Awakening is just like all the other Underworld movies, meaning it's a hollow and plodding genre flick full of joyless, poor man's Matrix-lite action sequences.

There's not much to this movie beyond a slick procession of dark, gleaming violence.

with Awakening, the vampires-vs-werewolves Underworld franchise has finally decayed beyond the point of repair.

More creature feature than vampire movie, this fourth edition of Underworld tries to emulate the stylistics of Len Wiseman's 2004 original, with Wiseman leading the writing team
