User Score: 73/100

Synopsis:

Selene, a beautiful vampire warrior, entrenched in a war between the vampire and werewolf races. Although she is aligned with the vampires, she falls in love with Michael, a human who is sought by werewolves for unknown reasons.

In Underworld, Kate Beckinsale stars as Selene, a high-ranking member of an elite vampire warrior class working to obliterate the lycans - the race of werewolves. The struggle between the races has been waging for centuries, but a scheme to create an interbred species that combines the strengths of both races threatens to undermine both groups’ existence and their underworld battle.

Things get started as Selene uncovers a lycan plot to kidnap a human doctor (Scott Speedman), who somehow has a connection to both races. Kraven, the arrogant vampire leader, quickly becomes jealous of the affection between Selene and the doctor. At the same time, the Lycan leader is trying to hunt them both down. It’s "Romeo and Juliet", "The Matrix", and "Dracula Meets the Wolfman" thrown into a blender.

I’ve never seen a film with both werewolves and vampires in it like this, let alone at war with each other. Underworld was kinda cool but it didn’t deliver enough action and the story was way to complicated when all you wanna do is see Selene naked. Seriously though, the plot twists so much, there was a different bad guy every ten minutes. Very annoying. But it is decently cool action and a hot lead character.
