Edward or Selene? 
Come on now, do you have to ask? Let's leave that question hanging now.

Kate Beckinsale returns as this amazingly hot vampiress  Selene, who's in revenge after waking up from a cryogenically frozen state for 12 years. Well, you couldn't take away the skintight black latex outfit  that somehow made these films hit to some fanboys out there.

But we ask, do we really need another Underworld movie? you be the judge. In a nutshell, Kate is back for the fourth installment. It started when the humans found out the existence of the vampires and Lycans which then waged a war to eradicate both, Selene wakes up in the future with revenge and in search for her beau Michael.

But it doesn't get easy for our sexy vampire. She is on the run and the Lycans are getting stronger even when in hiding (or are they really?). Selene also discovers that she has a daughter (India Eisley), accepting that she can no longer find her beau Michael she is on the run. Accompanied bu a hunky vampire (Theo James) and a sympathetic cop (Michael Ealy) helps out in taking care of the uncontrollable Lycans.

The thing that I liked was on the start of the movie, they did a short montage of what happened in the past from the start of the franchise. It did gave the viewers a good background and where they were headed with the fourth installment.

Actions scene are certainly worth noting. Lots of stunts and perfectly timed slo-mo but isn't this just the same of what we've see on the first 3 films? Yes, the skin tight latex, trench coat flapping, trigger happy vamp, with  blood and violence is great but where does this movie really stands? Is there something missing? You be the judge.

I give the movie 3.5 of 5

Although I would love to give 5 for Kate's hotness, and 4 for the movie's BADASS feel, I feel that the 3.5 is just right for the story, plot and content. I still do recommend this movie to my readers. watch it and do let me know what you think. To those who watched the first 3 films, let me know what you think of the fourth installment!


Checkout the trailer at the bottom of this post. Opening across the Philippines on Friday, Jan. 20 in IMAX 3D, Digital 3D and regular theaters, “Underworld Awakening” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

To answer the question, Edward or Selene? although Selene's skin doesn't shimmer in the sun I think that my girl Selene would snap Edwards neck easily. As for hotness, skin tight latex in an awesome body is hot enough reason to choose Selene. Right? :)
