    Kate Beckinsale returns for the 4th installment in the Underworld saga. This is a direct sequel to the second film Evolution.

    A vampire movie with action and no sparkles? Check.

    Kate Beckinsale in a corset? Check.

    A promise of a supernatural bloodbath? Check.

    Yeah, I'm in.

    I like Underworld, even though the "Blood Enemy" prequel novel was ten times better than the third movie. I'll probably wait for video on this one though...

    I'm glad to see Selene back in action. I'll definitely be checking this one out in theaters.

    Liked the first two movies, but was unable to watch the 3rd.

    Just as well though, at least it'll be a smoother continuation to just watch the 4th.

    And yeah, at least we're getting vampires who aren't sparkly :lol

    The Underworld films aren't the most shining examples of vampire flicks, but this installment's arrival seems like the descent of manna from Heaven in light of all that recent Twlight horseshit. Count me in.

    People forget that the first one was actually shunned, until the second one came out, no one really appretiated the first one.

    I actually am still trying to understand how the second one was meant to end. Weren't they saying that killing the original Vampire and Lycan meant to cancel out the rest of the race, or cure them? Can any explain?

    I never watched the other Underworld films and even I want to see this one. I'll probably catch the other ones on TV sometime before I watch this one.

    Really? I remember liking it. And it couldn't have bombed too badly, otherwise they wouldn't be making a 4th film.

    It was originally shunned because of how slow of a pace it was. Being an action movie, they figured it should of been more up to speed like the second one. Hell, I liked it right off the bat. My friends at the time called me an idiot and blah blah blah for thinking it was. So, the second one comes out, and they do a complete 180. I think this is pretty much what happened with a lot of people.

    I thought it was cool too, especially since I didn't expect it to be the best drama in the world. I expected to see Kate Beckinsale in tight clothes fighting monster with some witty interaction, and I was pleased to see that come true.

    First Underworld film is alright, but could have been better.

    Second Underwold flick SHOULD have inproved on those weaker aspects, except it didn't and was worse. Fail.

    Third Underworld film... I bought it on Blu Ray after seeing it cheap. I haven't actually managed to sit through it yet.

    So although the return of Beckinsale is welcome I'm not holding my breath on this being any good.

    HOWEVER, a caveat. If there is a fight/shootout in a Christmas decorations factory, and Selene gets covered in glitter and goes 'WTF is this shit?' I will love it forever.
