Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

Rated R 92 minutes 2009

This is a prequel to Underworld, the vampire-versus-werewolf wannabe epic whose primary reason for existing was to display Kate Beckinsale in gloriously tight outfits. Save for a quick cameo, Beckinsale has departed, with Bill Nighy and Michael Sheen rising to the prestige of headliner roles. Rhona Mitra stops by to play a vampire in tight outfits, and while she is impressive-looking, Beckinsale in her vampire ware cannot be touched. Sheen returns to his role as Lucian, leader of the werewolves in a Planet of the Apes-type revolt against vampire leader Viktor (Nighy). The way Nighy forces his lines through his prosthetic teeth must’ve led to co-stars constantly dodging spit. Action sequences are mostly incomprehensible, and the special effects are often cheap-looking. Stop it with these Underworld movies. Enough already!
