Consensus: Underworld: Blood Wars delivers another round of the stylized violence that the series is known for, but -- like many fifth franchise installments -- offers precious little of interest to the unconverted.

Rafer Guzman

Possibly the nail in the coffin of this dreary vampire series.

This film is so heavy with exposition that you would think that the director, Anna Foerster, and the screenwriter, Cory Goodman, had set out to complete a dissertation instead of a sequel.

The fifth movie in this supernatural action/horror series isn't the worst, but it isn't very good, either; it has moments of mindless fun, but also too much seriousness and mood-killing awkwardness.

Coming off a long overdue reunion with Whit Stillman in the Jane Austen adaptation Love & Friendship, Kate Beckinsale returns here to the role that has been wasting her gifts as a comic actor for going on 14 years.

While the film may justify its title in terms of the viscera on display, it is badly in need of a funny bone.

Underworld: Blood Wars exists on another plane of lousy from its predecessors, a product hustled into cinemas with no regard for its competence or its well being as cinema. It's the rare dud that you'll pity as much as revile.

Alonso Duralde

For the most part, there's little to care about: Semira surfaces as the one potential source of campy fun in the film, but she's quickly ground down by the story machinations, and the fight scenes are so choppily edited that they barely register at all.

Whatever's vibrating on your phone is more interesting than what's onscreen.

Over the years, the Underworld franchise has steadily evolved into the Attack of the Sexy Halloween Costumes.

Visually has a lot of the things Underworld is known for, but in terms of quality? Well if you liked Awakening, you'll like this. Because they're… More

Underworld: Blood Wars is my first film of the Underworld series, and thankfully, my last. It's just another joyless CGI-fueled film lacking in plot, and… More
