Movie Review: Underworld Awakening

I watched Underworld 4: Awakening this afternoon together with my husband, our first date for 2012. We were supposed to bring our 2-year old daughter to watch with us but we decided not to bring her this afternoon and so we can have time together as a couple. Watching movie together is one of the many things we missed doing together for the past months.


Anyway, its a good thing she didn't come with us, because this movie is not for her age afterall. The movie in which I call  "bloody" is like a celebration of violence. Too much killing and fighting for survival and extinction. 

Kate Beckinsale or Selene, a strong-willed vampire, a fighter, and a lover proves her enduring love for Michael, her hybrid lover. Along her quest for vengeance and to find him, she met their daughter. One line I like the most is when Selene said to her daughter, "...I'm not cold, I'm just broken." She didn't know how to be a mother at first because she is so focused about finding Michael. 

Totally, the movie was not that good for me. I hope the fifth installment is not always about Selene that other characters are forgotten.

P.S. If you're into Underworld, you can find the DVDs or the Blu-Ray at a discounted price HERE

I haven't watched this movie yet but I can imagine how violent it can be! Hahaha Kate Beckinsale looks so hot in that corset though. Makes me want to dress like her as well. hahaha :)

I love full-action packed movie. But this one, Underworld Awakening, seems to get my curiosity. I want to see this movie to prove or find out for myself why there is so much fighting, killing for survival or for extinction. I want to see a strong-willed vampire and a fighter like Selene.

I have to admit my expectations were low after watching Rise of the Lycans. Underworld Awakening was not only action packed from beginning to end, the movie encompossed a great plot with some nice surprises and a well written script I might add. Selene is one the sexiest vampires in my book. Very entertaining. Loved it from beginning to end.
