Underworld: Awakening (2012)

Underworld: Awakening




Trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzRQwjlecFE


I went straight from Underworld: Evolution to Underworld: Awakening in watching the films on DVD. They didn't have the 3rd installment at the library and from what I've heard from the general public of fans of the series is that it sucks donkey balls. No Kate Beckinsale....no dice. So, that brings me to Awakening. Immediately from how the presented Michael in a very crappy CGI mock up of his likeness, I knew right away that Scott Speedman was not going to be in this one. That's already a bad way to start off this movie. But with his "disapperance" they basically add a new character to take his place as the only Hybrid in the series: Their Daughter.

The movie as a whole was just all over the place with no clear distinction as to what it is they are trying to say with this series. I don't even think Len Weisman has any idea himself. This movie is more style and no substance. When I say 'flash' I mean anything pertaining to how they frame and shoot Kate in her leather outfit which I stand behind 100%. But there were some really bad FX shots, namely the Lycan's. I never really liked their Werewolf design in the first two films and in this one is was just horrible.

I think the movie as a whole is still fails with Speedman bailing on this installment. His lack of participation definitely crippled this movie and I wouldn't be all that surprise if this was the nail in the coffin that is Underworld. A passable Rent just for Kate and Kate alone to fulfill your leather fetishes.

Somebody clue me in as to why Speedman didn't return. Was he commited to another film at the time or did he just think that the series was over and done with? While on the subject, why did Weisman sit this one out? I know he co-wrote the story and screenplay. I was kinda shocked to see that it was another director behind this one.

Who knows? Maybe the studios. They have an awful lot of say, on what is and isn't.

If it's the Studio's doing, then somebody clearly doesn't understand the term continuity and how big of a hurdle it becomes when you mess with it.

Suit #1: I have a brilliant idea!

Suit #2: What is it?

Suit #1: Let's not hire Scott for the 4th film!

Suit #2: That makes no sense. We spent a lot of money and time setting up the character of Selene and Michael in the first two films. They have a history and it's vital to the series mythology. What possible good reason do you have for wanting to f*ck this up?

Suit #1: My daddy owns the Studio. Oh, by the way, never question me again. You're fired!

Suit #3: I overheard your conversation. I think it's a brilliant idea. You're gonna revolutionize Hollywood by revitalizing the Underworld franchise.

Suit #1: And you are?

Suit #3: Your new 'Yes-man'. And you can call me b*tch or lackey. You're the boss.

Suit #1: You're hired. Now go wash my car.

Suit #3: Yes, Sir.




FYI, this scene plays sooooooooo much better with three hot chicks dressed up in leather.
