Edition No. 118

Date:- 27 September 2003

Film Review:- Underworld

UNDERWORLD, contrary to the title has nothing to do with organised crime. It's all about Vampires fighting Werewolves. 

Shot in a similar style to the Matrix and the Crow, with the eerie dark atmosphere that oozes sex and tension. The allure of big name movie hotshots appears rather obviously missing as no huge name's acting in the film makes the films appeal more stunning.

In some places, the films outlook pertains to fashion, and the eye as opposed to dialogue, but it is an amazing film given its incredibly ambiguous supernatural nature. It is an action movie that deflects from the normal genre of the past, giving a well thought out plot that proves to be interactive and highly enjoyable..... 
unlike many previous action films produced in the last two decades.

The filmmakers may have left the ending wide open for a sequel, but then what else do we expect from Hollywood now. A series of good acting and carefully placed special effects makes for an incredible film, which is not exactly ground breaking but certain to make a hit with its prospective audience.
