Interlude with the vampires

Movie: Underworld

Our Rating: 2.50

Attention, Goth-club owners: Here's a movie you can throw up on your video screens for a guaranteed two hours of cheap atmospherics. A centuries-old war between vampires and werewolves explodes in an orgy of "Matrix"-y gunplay, pseudoscientific bloodletting and shows of that sumptuous undead lifestyle. There's nothing else to the flick, but you almost have to admire it for focusing exclusively on the dark-fantasy money shots to which its audience has already pledged allegiance. May attract a cult following, which is the next best thing to being good.
