Is it me or is The Aviator Beckinsale's only good movie?

R.T. (20-30%):"There's more vapid action and less story in this than previous installments, making the whole affair feel inconsequential".

Well, time to rip into the worst movie I've seen this year so far.
 
The good:
 
The super-Lycan: The super-Lycan is this really big Lycan who can regenerate. His fight scenes are cool, but he gets an ignoble defeat.
 
The bad:
 
The script: You don't expect good things from a script like this, and I wouldn't really harp on this part, but there's a big reason why I'm doing it: J. Michael Straczynski. JMS is a legitimate writer, so I don't know why he's here.
 
Wasted oppertunity: In the opening scene, we're shown a bunch of Lycans climbing a building, presumably a government one. Man, that should have been the whole movie.
 
Special effects: Special effects have never been the Underworld franchise's strong point, but it's gotten worse here. There's several Lycan transformations that rival New Moon in terribleness.
 
The ugly:
 
Steven Rea: Rea, obviously tired of appearing in great movies like V For Vendetta, decided to play a mad scientist in this.
 
India Eisley: Her Secret Life Of The American Teenager co-star Shailene Woodley did great in The Descendants. She bombs bad here as Eve, daughter of Kate Beckinsale and a hybrid. Some of her make-up was funny though.
 
Kate Beckinsale: She may be hot, but she can't act. I mentioned on the previous page that my favorite Underworld was the third which had actual actors (Michale Sheen, Rhona Mitra) as the main characters and no Beckinsale.
 
They're probably going to make a fifth one. I just know it. Grade: D+
 
Next-up: Shark Night 3D!!

I just it. It currently ranks #50 (a little lower than RISE OF THE LYCANS and a lot lower than EVOLUTION) in my all time worst list (there are currently 52 titles so far).

For your consideration: Worst Supp. Actor (Stephen Rea); Worst Screen Ensemble; Worst Screenplay; Worst Prequel or Sequel; Worst Picture.

Van Helsing, 
Ultraviolet, 
BloodRayne, 
Vampires Suck 


 
Oh, man, Ultraviolet is so ridiculous.

Ah, man, I thought you were going to have her say "...I'll have no choice but to. . . make another sequel!"  Now, that would be scary.
 
And unfortunately, it's a certainty.
 
#4 in the series cost $70 million to make and had a worldwide haul of $165 million.  It was profitable enough to ask for yet one more installment.  Ugh.
