Was there really a need for another Underworld sequel? Underworld: Awakening is stupid, boring and completely ridiculous. After the human race finds out about the existence of both vampires and lycans, they go about cleansing the world of the two species, led by Dr. Jacob Lane (Stephen Rea). Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and Michael (Scott Speedman, via archive footage and a really bad double) are both captured and put into cryogenic suspension. When Selene awakens, she finds 12 years have passed, and that she has given birth to a hybrid child, whom she must now protect. What follows is a lot of dull action and a bunch of vampires making proclamations; the script is rather uninteresting and tedious. In short, when Speedman—a dude who spent several years on the show Felicity—won’t return for your movie, you know you’re kind of screwed.
