Len Wiseman
Released:
2003
Rating:
R
Underworld is a 2001 fantasy thriller that tells the story of the centuries-old feud between Vampires and their sworn enemies, the Lycans, a tribe of shape-shifting werewolves. Selene (Kate Beckinsdale) is a Death Dealer, a Vampire whose job it is to track down Lycans and kill them. Selene is exceptionally good at her job, her passion for Lycan killing is personal as she believes the Lycans killed her family when she was just a child. According to myth, both vampires and werewolves are descended from the same bloodline, sharing a common ancestor in Alexander Corvinus. Singe (Erwin Leder), a Lycan scientist, believes he's found a direct blood descendent of the Corvinus line. He believes a hybrid race could be created with the right DNA, a lethal combination of Vampire and Lycan. When Selene notices a pack of Lycans stalking Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman), a human doctor, she's intrigued enough to follow Michael, learning all she can about him. As her attraction to Michael grows, so does the Lycan's interest in the doctor. Does an unlikely romance between a Vampire and a possible half-human/half-werewolf stand a chance of surviving?moreless

    Takes itself so seriously that it never has fun with its shopworn genre elements.

    The New York Times

    Achieves only loudness, aggressive confusion and one of the silliest head-splittings in film history.
