HERE's WHERE FORUM MEMBERS ARE LIKELY to START "AWAKENING" to the IDEA THAT a 4th ENTRY in THIS SERIES WAS "UNDER-NECESSARY"...

To be honest.... I wasn't even aware that a second or third Underworld movie even existed....

This is all I know about this franchise: The first movie was about vampires and werewolves at war, and 1 from each side fell in love with 1 from the other side, but because of the action it was more like BLADE than TWILIGHT. The 2nd movie was about... something. In the 3rd, the lead was Rhona Mitra, and Kate Beckinsale only made a cameo appearance (I know this because she was nominated for a Scream Award for Best Cameo). Here, for some reason, Beckinsale is back in the lead again(?).

I'll end up seeing this this weekend, because my Dad wants to see it and he was kind enough to take me to see Jack & Jill -- So it's payback time!

Yep, SchumacherH8ter, you're screwed big-time! As for these films, they are totally unnecessary and convoluted, but they must keep making money -- maybe because the negative reviews make more people want to see this sh*t??

Actually, watching all four Underworld movies 9001 times in a row would be preferable to any five minute segment of Jack & Jill.

This will be released tomorrow, and there's still no reviews yet. I'm beginning to think that the studio has no hope for this movie -- Strange, considering it's great release date in a month that's definitely not for stinkers!  
 
Some good news: The Artist starts playing near me tomorrow...

Most people prefer this franchise over Twilight, even though it's almost as stupid.  Just for fun, here's a short list of some other dumb vampire movies: 

Blade: Trinity, 
Van Helsing, 
Ultraviolet, 
BloodRayne, 
Vampires Suck

Van Helsing is the worst movie that doesn't involve Bat-nipples. BloodRayne would be my distant second for Worst Vampire Movie.

I don't think VAMPIRES SUCK counts.

Miguel, one piece of advice: Don't mention anything that had Uwe Boll anything to do with.

The series is quite dull like Resident Evil imo. I don't know how both series have gone passed 3 films already (4 for RE). I will say, though, that I enjoyed Underworld 3 (the prequel) the most because it had a coherent plot. But yeah, I don't like Underworld a lot.

So far, it's at 27% on R.T. and 48% on Metacritic.

Rise Of The Lycans is my favorite Underworld too. Interestingly, that one didn't have Beckinsale in it. I wonder if that's a sign?

I would like Beckinsale's character a lot more if she were more...happy. She's just all too serious sometimes, with her low, serious voice and her eyes leering all over the place. Also, the dark, grungy color palette (with all the blues, blacks, grays, etc) contributes to the dull atmosphere of the series.
