Selene, (Kate Beckinsale) is at it again, in the newest and fourth installment of the Underworld series. Strong, fearless, and radiantly riveting on screen, Selene possess a kick ass strength that clearly transcends the likes of ‘girl power.’

In “Underworld: Awakening,” the human race is working aggressively to eradicate the diseased, those infected to become lycan or vampire. The humans feel threatened, and as a result almost kill them entirely off. Each species left to recoil in hiding, fear of being found again and annihilated. Just as Selene (Beckinsale) and Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman) almost reach freedom from the humans grip, an explosion takes place, and 12 years later Selene awakens, from a coma like state, inside a frozen tomb of ice. In typical Selene kick ass fashion, she flees the scene, but when later returning in search for subject #2 who she has learned is Michael’s and her daughter, Eve (India Eisley), she notices a third ice filled chamber with her beloved Michael frozen inside. No time to free him, she breaks a whole in the chambers glass wall. Nearing the end of the flick, we see Selene once again in this labratory, the third chamber empty- Michael’s chamber… wholly heck, right? The movie ends, and in the theater, I just sit. Thinking…what happens next? Selene and Michael must find one another, and together will need to address both the human and lycan threats. Because let’s remember: the vampires and lycans are still at war with one another, and each of them are at war with the humans. No one is playing nicely.

With all that said, it can be most likely declared that the fifth edition of this series is going to be epic. Well, maybe not exactly epic…but, ok EPIC! If you have not had the chance to check out this movie, and are a fan of the series, I highly recommend you see it. It’s still in theaters, so grab your favorite gal or guy and make a date night out of it. You won’t be disappointed. Though, if you’ve already had a chance to see “Awakening,” I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    Ok, since I’ve only ever seen the other movies once each, and don’t remember really ANYTHING about them (except the werewolves are called Lycons, and that vampires and them are at war, and I remember the face of the main character(s),) I am glad we’ll be doing a “marathon” before hand to refresh my mind. I’ve never been a huge fan of any of the movies (they were good, don’t get me wrong, but not good enough for me personally- obviously- to own any of them.), but I do look forward to seeing this one, and see how it plays into the other movies. Especially since there is a daughter (if I followed right) of the main characters??!
