Underworld: Awakening (2012) is the fourth installment in the Underworld movie series. Kate Beckinsale reprises her role as Selene, the female vampire warrior.
Synopsis from Wikipedia: Six months after the events of Underworld: Evolution, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) was captured by humans. Eventually both government officials and the public learn about the existence of the two immortal species of Vampires and Lycans (Werewolves). A crusade and all-out war has begun: study and eradicate. After being imprisoned in cryogenic suspension for 12 years, Selene manages to escape the facility. During the same time, another suspect has also escaped the same facility that Selene was in. The suspect was Eve (India Eisley), a hybrid who is the key to ending the war.
Surprisingly, I haven't watched the first three movies. Blehhh. So, I find myself in awe as I watch how cool, sleek, and agile Kate Beckinsale is as Selene. Somehow, her character reminds me of Alice from the Resident Evil movie series, starring the equally cool actress, Milla Jovovich.
Since this movie is about the never-ending war between the Vampires and the Lycans, you can expect lots of gruesome fights, dead Vampires, torn-apart Lycans, and blood everywhere. It's really a bloody fest. In fact, the movie's focus is just about fightings, killings, shootings, jumping from buildings, car chases, all sorts of action sequences you could think of.
Therefore there is a lack, you can't really feel the characters, e.g. Eve. Eve is a newly introduced character but there's no emphasis on character development and thus, I find the entire movie devoid of sentiments but just bang bang bang. The end. Well, I guess there's no time for feelings and sentiments because the main focus is the action scenes.
Anyway, if you want to watch Kate Beckinsale kicking some Lycans' backside, you would want to watch this movie.
