Although this franchise probably should have ended as a trilogy, they didn't so make this next one good. Make sure to get Scott Speedman back.

Yes!!! I'm waiting for this one. I hope they explain a lot in a much better way, all the info or links that are being lost or loosen.

there should really be an underworld animation like Beowulf regarding the creation of both species the history and the storyline of Marcus William and Alexander Corvinus.I would pay ten times to watch that ****.

this movie is already ****ty. First off, how are they going to get rid of Scott Speedman's character? They can't just kill him, whos going to kill him? If the very first Lycan(william) couldnt kill him, who can?.. Just Selene and a 'Detective' fighting a 'new' threat just sounds lame. Scott Speedman was the reason I was excided for this movie. A Vampire/Warewolf hybrid was one of the most creative characters in decades. Who disagrees?

Posted by: Bernard Brown on March 28, 2011 at 12:45:07

i must agree with it :) but i dont think that he should be killed. honestly the hybrid character should be able to turn others as well and begin a new, that has never been seen on screen or low budget films "hybrid vs. day walkers" within my opinion would be competition for him. if the wolves or modern vamps cant throw down with him then, i can only think of one way to see the character back in action one on one with a day walker or many. maybe even an all out war live or die to face extinction. but who knows :)

Underworld: Extinction sounds good?

Well I hope they bring back the Weres from #1, I hated those hairy CGI beasts in 2 and 3, so typical looking Werewolves. The Weres in #1 were different from the norm and gave the movie the difference it needed to stand out. I'm not sure how I feel about the plot of this one. I agree that Scott Speedman needs a role in this one, though they really down played his character in #2, I wanted to see more of his development. Still a few things left unanswered in #1, like why the close up screen shot of Lucien injecting Michael's blood...

Posted by: Jennifer on July 29, 2011 at 12:04:06

WTF. Micheal is not in this??? This is the plot? Well, there goes my plans to see this movie. How did we go from Selena and Micheal on the run to her being imprisoned without a clue as to what is going on?? Please tell me this is a BAD Joke and not the real plot.

@Jennifer - Please read this story

Is Scott Speedman going to be in it? I really need to know because, golly, if he is...I'm not going.

Posted by: Jennifer on August 2, 2011 at 15:45:14

@Ryan Turek - I did see that after my post.
The plot STILL sucks and the fact that Micheal seems to have been written out blows.

Well since you are going back ward in 4, in movie five Kate should have a baby. You did make that great love scene. I don't think you would have had so many complaints if you started with 3&4 movies first then 1&2 . Starting in the middle then go back again bites.

In the second movie it showed that Kate B. character could walk in the sun light, because she drink the father of both werewolves and vampires blood. So it made here like a hybrid or something. Kind of like Michael in way. Now it this film it seem that that part never happened and that she is weak in the sunlight again. For it is looking like they contradicted themselves in this one. Also if the did take Scott Speedmen out then the movie may end up dropping a few more points, I think. But who knows we only have this three minute preview to go by.

I'm a big fan of this franchise but I hope Awakening isn't the same as the first 2 installments in which Selene is just a killing machine wiping out the persecuted Lycans with little or no emotion whatsoever. Lucian, whom is the most sympathetic character in the trilogy, sought to stop the senseless slaughter of Lycans with the creation of the hybrid but Michael being half Lycan still holds no sway with the Lycans. Michael and Selene still continue killing 1st and 2nd generation Lycans in evolution so Lucian's goals are basically down the toilet. Rise of the Lycans is the best of the trilogy because Lucian shows that he has much more humanity than Selene because he fights for Lycan freedom and equality and revenge for the deaths of Sonia and their unborn child where as Selene kills all the Lycans she can because of Viktor's deception about Lycans killing her family. That's the equivalent of a person being prejudice towards an entire race because of one person from that race committing a crime towards his/her family. Also these movies need to get away from stressing who is the strongest. Stronger does not necessarily mean better fighter nor does being older because the writers contradict themselves when Selene kills Marcus and Michael kills William. Marcus is a hybrid yet Selene told Alexander that he could have killed Marcus himself because he's the only one who's older and stronger. How does she know that for sure? Think about it. I'm a fan of Kevin, Ken, Danny and Alice but they need my help in cleaning up a few details in these movie if they ever plan on making a part 5.

I hope it will live up to my expectation that this is gonna be most exciting dystopia I will ever have seen on screen! Certainly it's going to be one of the best vampire movie as well.

Yeah,the one above is mine.Pity this site can't recognize my Chinese name.

Something told me Underworld was going this route--involving [more] humans. But detectives? Really? Typical.

Michael was by far the coolest and most creative character in Underworld. The whole vampire/lycan hybrid getup was truly awesome. Not involving him is kinda a disappointment. They could've done so much with that character alone.
