Favorite movie quote - "We have a serious problem here."

When it comes to the likes of a Romeo & Juliet story presented in the genre of Fantasy/Horror, I must say that I did enjoy, for the most part, Underworld's diabolical, little tale of forbidden love.

At times Underworld's vicious, blood-thirsty story of betrayal & revenge was definitely something of a gratifying adrenaline-rush where everyone (vampires and werewolves, alike) were getting royally clobbered, one and all.

With its carefully-staged gun-battles literally taken (bullet-for-bullet) straight out of The Matrix, I found it somewhat unfortunate that Underworld's underworld of vampires & werewolves only came in one generic flavor - And, that was - The young & good-looking type.

And besides Underworld being about 20 minutes too long for its own good, I also docked this picture some serious points due to there being way too much time spent amongst the vampires & werewolves fighting and feuding with each other.

I mean, with all of the bitching, bickering and battling that went on amongst these modern-day monsters, I'm surprised that any of them had any time to feed.

Underworld's budget was $22 million. It was shot on location in Budapest, Hungary.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!! This movie screams for HOMETHEATER. I have always loved vampires and werewolves since i was a little boy watching "Chiller Theater" on channel 11 every Saturday night. The visual special effects for the 'Lycans" are very good. But the sound is off the hook!!! In the opening scene where the vampires are following the werewolves into the subway and began shooting, rocked my world. The sounds of bullets whizzing by in my surounds from handguns and machineguns was awesome!!! There are plenty of scenes for audio and visuals that will entertain you. I love the way this movie shows at night. The night scenes have very good details. 5 stars!!!!!! THE WHOLE MOVIE!!!! A large pizza with hamburgers,pepporoni,sausages, and red kool-aide.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Not for children. People get shot and die. Werewolf transformation can be frightning.
