The introduction of the humans as the main enemy, viewing lycans and vampires as diseased individuals who must be killed so the virus doesn't spread is a fun angle but it really does nothing to stop this entry from being a generic b-movie storyline, especially considering the fact that this new angle they introduced is barely involved in the narrative. The thing is that I don't see these movies for plot or gripping narrative, so Underworld Awakenings delivers on some solid fight choreography, while being loaded with action with a nice side of graphic violence. The problem here is that the special effects are pretty terrible at times. Harsh? Maybe cause I was watching on Blu-ray, though essentially anytime the effects aren't of the practical variety, I was taken out of the it a bit. The one exception being the gigantic werewolf and some of the transformation stuff. If you liked the sequels of Underworld, you should find this enjoyable for what it is, nothing very exciting but an entertaining enough way to waste 80 minutes.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
