Now that humans have learned of the existence of both they Lycan and Vampire clans, they started a war of cleansing to wipe out both species. Both clans have moved into hiding and are struggling to survive. Selene (Kate Beckinsale), a vampire warrior has been frozen and kept hidden deep inside a lab for experimentation. She was captured 12 years ago, but someone has suddenly thawed her out and she escapes to the outside, and begins a war of survival against the Lycans who now have found a way to eliminate their main weakness to silver, and as a consequence have grown to 2 or 3 times the size and power. Selene finds out the the one who freed her was the other specimen who is a very, very special little girl.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you will probably know that I’m not much of a super-hero fan. I typically am not too interested in films of this genre. But for some reason, this franchise is really excellent. So I went to the theater opening weekend to give this one a shot. I was very pleasantly surprised. The action is intense, as always, but the story is very good. It has a lot of surprises, and it’s raw energy from start to finish. As Selene is figuring out what’s going on, so are we. It’s a very entertaining film, never boring, and a pleasant surprise. Underworld still has it. Kate Beckinsale is one of the best female superheroes. I really enjoyed it.
