Plot Summary:
"Underworld reimagines Vampires as a secretive clan of modern, aristocratic sophisticates whose mortal enemies are the Lycans (werewolves), a shrewd gang of street thugs who prowl the city's underbelly. The balance of power is upset when a beautiful young Vampire and a nascent Lycan # deadly rivals for centuries # fall in love."

This is actually a hard film to review as it is a good film but it is NOT a horror film, but as the plot description involved the words Vampires & Werewolves, every horror site on the web has been anticipating this one from the get go.

So, last week ever reliable me went to see it to please the masses. After all there's no point in it being in the database if no one was going to review it!!

The story is basically Romeo & Juliet but Romeo is a Werewolf and Juliet is a Vampire, who is obviously a fan of 'The Matrix' and is played by Kate Beckinsale. The plot is then further complicated by all sorts of politics that results in a huge fight to resolve the whole mess, which in turn paves the way for the already in development sequel.

The film itself is highly stylish, completely presented in a bluish tint, which occasionally turned grey and green (I think. It hurt my eyes after a while so I may have imagined it). We get all manner of cool wire work and clever edits along with clever new ideas and weapons, but ultimately it's all gloss.

Underworld is a highly stylish action film, with a dark theme running through it, but horror movie it isn't!

The element of Vampires & Werewolves is totally irrelevant here, they could have been Catholics and Jews or meat-eaters and vegetarians for all I care as the only element needed to move the story along is that they have to be two different parties.
