Another one? Weren't the first two punishment enough?
Looks good, at least as good as the first two. Though, did they really have to use that one Manson song so soon after Max Payne's trailers did?
I like the Underworld series if only for its somewhat interesting mythology. I'll probably go and see this just to round out the entire trilogy.
Trilogy? I thought I saw a 4th one in production.
Personally, they can keep pumping them out as much as they want, but I'll not be wasting my time or $ on them.
I've deliberately been avoiding the two first film so I think I'll pass on this one too.
In the second movie, continuity errors galore are almost funnier that the lusty pashion scene in which the guy is closer to the girl's navel than to, um... Maybe the director needs an anatomy lesson?
I can only imagine that the target audience is a bunch of teenyboppers or early 20s goth wannabees who are still impressed with nipple shots and have delusions of being "bad" when they're just naughty at worst.
Movie plays like a bad video game. Trying to combine TombRaider with Vampires.
I just thought they were dumb escapist takes on the traditional Vampire/Werewolf phenomenon. I found the movies enjoyable. I don't think I'd ever buy them but they weren't awful entertainment.
The first movie was much better than I thought it was going to be, and would have been better if it hadn't tried to emulate the Matrix's style so much. That's part of what gives me hope for this one: the coolest part of the second movie was the medieval part, and it looks like this whole film lives there, safe from bullets and leather coats.
I'm just glad Michael Sheen and Kevin Grevioux will be back. There weren't enough, you know "rational" werewolves in the second one. They were all mindless, unchanging dogs. So it'll be nice to get to that.
Underworld - Kate Beckinsale = No Reason To Watch
The first one was so bad it was good.
This one looks even worse
The first one wasn't too bad, and it had a fantastic poster. I don't regret paying the $8.00 or whatever the cost of a ticket was at the time. I didn't see the second one - the first wasn't good enough to make me want to see the second. The third? Eh. Definitely a pass.
I recall the second one being better in some respects- no strange delayed-reaction-head-bisection moment, IIRC. And Viktor (or whomever it was who woke up) was a worthy villian.
