Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"These vampires have no teeth -- hell, they don't even fly."
‑ , Time Out
"Dark Shadows for the Playstation 2 generation."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
"Pulpy, punk-ish story with some intense violence."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"...a relentlessly unpleasant fantasy epic..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This mostly mediocre movie is a painless enough time-waster, thanks to slick production values and some impressive stunt work, but it never lives up to the potential of its premise."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"'Your incompetence is most taxing,' says the chief vampire (Bill Nighy). A line that pretty much nails this rusty Blade."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"I've been waiting a long time to see a Shakespearean werewolf vampire movie and here it is."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"...a hybrid horror and action film that succeeds as neither."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Tony Pierce-Roberts' cinematography perfectly captures the gothic comic-book feel."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"The script unfurls a lot of backstory we don't care about illuminating plot mysteries we also don't care about."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"The sort of movie in which the head vampire telegraphs his evil by using a cell phone and dressing like the Kinks' Ray Davies in the early '80s."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"125 minutes is a long time to stare at a movie that's basically in bleached blue-and-white with occasional splotches of brick red."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"Fails to deliver with anything truly tasty or memorable."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"[Underworld] could use more plot and deepened characters and less vapid expository dialogue, flashbacks and ballets of bullets."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"The film even has the nerve to set itself up for a sequel. Of course, the ending is so sloppy, that this may have just been an oversight."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
