UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING (RatedPG-13 for violence, peril, profanity, drinking, smoking, unpleasant thematic elements):
You don't want to waste time or money on this one, which joins earlier losers that are unscreened for professional critics, here commented on by one who paid to see it when it arrived at local screens. His reaction was hardly a surprise:
"Horror: Vampires and werewolves for the 4th time; here they must contend with a new enemy in the form of humans who want to eradicate them. It's a dark, joyless video game of a movie that doesn't even bother to tell a complete story - rather, one chapter, and not a very memorable one at that. At 88-minutes, it's mercifully short for anyone forced to sit through it. And it's wall-to-wall action and gore. So if you came for real 3D throat ripping and gunshots to the head, you might leave somewhat satisfied. More likely, though, you'll just want Ibuprofen and a refund."
