Underworld: Blood Wars
This movie is one of the most awaited by moviegoers. Since its first sequel in 2003, it has been making action/adventure movies combined with horror more thrilling. It was released on January 6th 2017 in USA, Underworld: Blood Wars has reached 81.1 million USD in the Box Office. The theme is about the wars between two races, Lycan and Vampire. The main character here is Selene as a Death Dealer which played the role by Kate Beckinsale. She is against both Lycans and Vampires who betrayed her. Allies are David (Theo James) and Thomas (Peter Andersson).
So what are the comments about this movie? I love to see the classy black-leather badass. I think it is more playful with guns and swords to settle the old-feud for centuries between the races. The fights are just nice with quite fabulous scenes especially, the cage-fight between Selene and Marius. Although there’s a drama in the scene, it ended furiously. It was so horrified to see the spine of Marius pulled out easily just like that. Well, it is quite great to see such of it.
What I am curious about are the fate of Michael Corvin and Eve. It is too bad that Michael died and his blood all drained. About Eve, where was she? I believe the movie would be more intriguing with the existence of her. More drama is certainly a thing for sale in the movie whether she’s dead or alive in this sequel. Let us see whether the next one (5th sequel) shows character of Eve or not.
Underworld: Blood Wars full movie is 1h 33m. The time should enough for watching. However, it is constructed in a poor quality. It has failed to engage in any impactful manner in audiences. Many of choppy editing and close-ups make the screen hard to keep track. They are by design to hide poor works of stunts. However, Karl Walter Lindenlaub the Cinematographer has been done a great job in every scene with low lights. His works make the movie shrouded in darkness. This makes it impossible for a 3D version.
Messy and sloppy narrative makes this Underworld: Blood Wars a poor one. Noteworthy performances are caused by bland and uninteresting players. Connecting with audiences is a fail. However, Kate Beckinsale proves that she is the ideal for the cool action heroine including in this movie.
In short, there is nothing new to say in this sequel. It is unlikely that the movie to move the positive direction for this series.
