Underworld: Blood Wars :Run-of-mill film
Underworld: Blood Wars is full of regulation fight sequences of varying kinds – from guns to swords and hand-to-hand combat. It abounds in deceitful vamps and villains ready to do anything to have absolute power.
The run-of-mill film of the genre has repetitive and predictable plotlines as part of a lackluster and regular screenplay. Actors follow the routine dutifully. The CGI effects are all right.
This is not a film for all audiences. If you like vampire movies, this will keep you engaged. It’s not an exceptional one, dwells more on hard-core action than sexuality & sensuality the films of the genre are known for.
It’s about two gangs, one of vampires and the other of werewolves who can take human form and are known as the Lykans. Both are after Selene (Kate Beckinsale), and her daughter, who are hybrids and their blood can make the vampires as well as the Lykans survive in human world. Selene has had in the past quite a few skirmishes with both the gangs and survived.
Her daughter has disappeared and none, including Selene, seems to know where she is. The Lycans are led by Marius (Tobias Menzies). On the other hand David (Theo James) and his father Thomas (Charles Dance), both part of the Vampire hierarchy, are on Selene’s side.
Selene once saved David with her blood and he has turned a hybrid too. The vampires are under threat from the Lycans and Thomas feels they will need the help of Selene to train their forces to fight the Lycans. He convinces Semira (Lara Pulver), the in charge of the vampire fortress, and the elders’ council about it.
David brings Selene to the fortress. Soon it becomes evident that ambitious Semira is after Selene’s blood. David succeeds in saving Selene but Serena kills his father. Now, both Semira and the other gang led by Marius are after Selene. Will she survive the twin enemies who are after her blood? What happened to her daughter?
