Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is on a quest to end the war between the Lycan clan, and the Vampire faction that disowned her.
Underworld: Blood Wars pretty much keeps the same tone as its predecessors. It’s main focus being the action scenes, and the battles between the Lycan and Vampires. Anna Foerster directs the newest installment, in her feature film debut. She shoots the battle scenes very well. You don’t feel like you’re missing anything as we transition back and forth between various fights. She’s able to tie up what little story there is in one massive battle scene. No small feat for a first timer.
Kate Beckinsale is great as Selene. She’s believable as an ass kicking heroine. At this point she’s just as reliable in roles like these than basically anyone. Theo James plays Selene’s right hand man, David. He’s become a serviceable actor in these action films. James is able to pull off the fight scenes, and does command attention when he’s on screen.
Underworld Blood Wars is another serviceable installment to a mid level budgeted franchise. Foerster does what she can with the financial resources at her disposal, and Beckinsale and James deliver as two ass kicking vampires. At the end of the day that’s what’s most important in an Underworld film. Blood Wars comes through in that department.
