Beckinsale shows that she probably could do this film another twenty years from now and still look bloody fantastic in both leather and fangs making her the truly one sole constant good thing with this series. The rest is another shoot-em-up fest that can easily go on the telly in the background while I update my MUBI "want to watch" list. Charles Dance is cool though. This film could work as an ending at least.
I couldn't believe how bad the CGI was for the Lycans. They brought acting talent to the table, but mostly wasted it. The vampires really need a fashion makeover. The black rubber clothes, the fangs that look fake. The nice vampires look much better. It's like a very bad costume party. At this point it doesn't even seem like they're trying.
The real victor in the "Underworld" series' longstanding war between vampires and werewolves has always been indifference, but I suppose - fourteen years later and in the midst of a culturally toxic 2017 - it's comforting to know that Kate Beckinsale can still slip into black latex and chop off heads with the best of them, and "Blood Wars" at least offers the boilerplate competency of a direct-to-DVD action flick.
Quelle grosse daube oh mon dieu... Y'a genre... Deux moments un peu cool, mais dans le reste on dirait juste un mauvais scénar de JDR. Il se passe rien, les acteurs (sauf Beckinsale) sont transparents et c'est plein de ces SALOPERIES de scène de baston dans le noir où on voit rien.
I was watching the movie on my computer and I had to stop twice and find an advertisement compilation on youtube to imitate the TV experience as this is in that caliber and the old ads I stumbled upon were much better then the whole movie. It's just a tired movie, unfortunately.
Tired series that should have been retired long ago gets a fifth installment that is certainly better then the 2 that preceded it but still seems completely unnecessary. Beckinsale continues to defy the aging process here and commits to her ongoing performance despite the rest of the cast hamming it up. By the time of rebirth and blonde highlights feel free to chuckle.
Desde el entusiasta punto de vista de un fan (casi) incondicional, no es fácil dar una opinión "objetiva" acerca de esta quinta entrega de la entretenida franquicia. Seguro que la cosa da para varias secuelas más. No obstante, a pesar de algunas buenas ideas, éstas no son lo suficientemente bien desarrolladas, y el resultado termina por lucir un tanto flojo. Una versión "extendida" no le vendría nada mal al asunto.
