Jason reviews Underworld: Awakening

There's a lot of reasons to love the Underworld series, a leather-clad Kate Beckinsale being chief among them. But there's also non-sparkly vampires, werewolves, violent gunplay and ass kicking up the wazoo. This fourth entry has all of the above in spades. Yet, for whatever reason, it also feels the most hollow of the four films. Not that I went in expecting Shakespeare or anything. But something was missing. A certain je ne sais quoi. Which makes it the weakest of the bunch. That said, it did have a leather-clad Kate Beckinsale, non-sparkly vampires, werewolves, violent gunplay and ass kicking up the wazoo. Should I complain? No. Will I watch this again, and other entries in the Underworld films? Yes. So Underworld: Awakening gets a Good from this Basement Dweller. And shout out to Bedlam's Theo James for getting decent role in this action flick.
