    There's not much to this movie beyond a slick procession of dark, gleaming violence. But Selene lovers would pay good 3D money to see her fight a parking ticket. show more

    Latest, dreadful entry in the vampires-battling-werewolves franchise. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    More aggressively violent and thankfully less mythology driven than previous installments, Underworld: Awakening is strictly for the converted. show more

    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. show more

    Tom Russo Boston Globe

    A sequel seemingly eager to assert that monster mashes are about B-movie chills not "Twilight'' melodrama. Eager to a fault, ultimately. show more

    The only thing that manages to outpace Underworld: Awakening's ineptitude is its utter soullessness. show more

    Not a complete disaster, but also not the vampire / werewolf mash we've always wanted. show more

    Boxoffice Magazine

    Kate Beckinsale can still fill out a skin-tight leather bodysuit, but with Awakening, the vampires-vs-werewolves Underworld franchise has finally decayed beyond the point of repair. show more

    Also missing: the series' reliable camp heavies, Bill Nighy and Michael Sheen, and most of the so-called Lycans who, their appearance in a few respectable action sequences notwithstanding, are now nearly extinct. So is this franchise. show more

    Kimberley Jones Austin Chronicle

    There is running, hiding, fighting, shooting, bleeding, biting, slicing, dicing, and damnably little entertainment value in any of it. show more

    I was a bit dissapointed, I felt this movie could be alot longer than it was. I felt everything was happening to quickly, but I can\'t complain about the action and the visual effects! The action and the visual effects is amazing and so vividly gruesome and horrifying!

    Best one so far. IMAX 3D worth every penny.
