The original death-dealer is back. After taking a break from the third Underworld film, Kate Beckinsale zips into the full-body black leather sheath once again to play Selene, the trigger-happy supernatural sheriff who targets werewolves, humans, and even her own kind, vampires.
You want a herd thinned, Selene's your girl.
As this sequel begins, Selene has been cryogenically frozen for 12 years, as humans have been systematically purging the world of the spookier species who have lived among them for centuries.
The cold temperatures did nothing for her disposition. She thaws right into a ruthless killing frenzy.
Awakening is a departure for the Underworld franchise, moving it from the horror genre to grind fantasy. The action sequences vault from special effects to cartoonish, Selene's physical abilities go from enhanced to impossible.
