This is the fourth and hopefully the last
we see of the “Underworld Franchise”.
“Awakening” follows the humans battle
to exterminate the Vampires and Lycans.
Selene (Beckinsale) is being held captive
in a medical facility known as Antigen,
where Dr. Jacob Lane and his staff are
experimenting on her, attempting to
create an antidote, which eventually
could make lycans immune to silver.
Selene is freed from her captives by a
young girl known as Subject 2, who also
happens to be a hybrid, their escape takes
them to an underground coven, where the
battle of the Vampires, Lycans & Humans
Bill Nighy & Michael Sheen missed a
bullet by not turning out for this fourth
movie (they appeared in the other 3).
At 88mins the movie is extremely short,
and whoever wrote the screenplay for this
film should hang their heads in shame,
the whole movie from start to finish seems
to have been rushed & the injection of 3D
is used as a gimic, one of the poorest
examples since 3D arrived on our screens.
Even the lovely Kate Beckinsale strutting
her stuff in black leather, could not save
this horrible viewing experience.
