Boston Globe

By Tom Russo
A sequel seemingly eager to assert that monster mashes are about B-movie chills not "Twilight'' melodrama. Eager to a fault, ultimately.

Not a complete disaster, but also not the vampire / werewolf mash we've always wanted.

Selene is Back!

If you're a fan of the previous Underworld movies, like me, this is a must see movie. Not only is the sexy vampire death dealer back, but she's in Momma Bear protection mode. As always, the effects...

A must see for Underworld fans.

By bugsmac9
The 3D effects were great. However the plot and action sequences make it good in any viewing arena. My wife was also glad that there was not a sex scene as in the second episode....

The REAL Vampire/Lycan series

The movie was everything you'd expect from this fantastic series. Although, it being made available in 3D really didn't do it justice. It should have stayed 2D instead of paying the extra fee for the...
