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.

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.

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.
 
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?page=main&id=underworld4.htm - #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.
