In the Underworld, Vampires are a secret clan of modern aristocratic sophisticates whose mortal enemies are the Lycans (werewolves), a shrewd gang of street thugs who prowl the city's underbelly. No one knows the origin of their bitter blood feud, but the balance of power between them turns even bloodier when a beautiful young Vampire warrior and a newly-turned Lycan with a mysterious past fall in love. Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman star in this modern-day, action-packed tale of ruthless intrigue and forbidden passion all set against the dazzling backdrop of a timeless, Gothic metropolis.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The sort of movie in which the head vampire telegraphs his evil by using a cell phone and dressing like the Kinks' Ray Davies in the early '80s.
Rotten: 'Your incompetence is most taxing,' says the chief vampire (Bill Nighy). A line that pretty much nails this rusty Blade.
Rotten: Features some of the year's most laughable dialogue.
Rotten: By any reasonable standard, this dark vampire epic -- all massive overacting, cologne-commercial design and sexy cat suits -- sucks.
Most spectacular thing to ever be created!!!!
Kate fits in this movie like a glove. A COMPLETE AWESOME mix of romance action and adventure!!!!!!! I LOVE it ! I'm only 12
Sexy, action packed Vampire film!
Kate did an excellent job. She kicked a**! I loved all the twist and turns between the Vamps and the Werewolves. There hasn't been a story like this so it was nice to see something different. It was truly a awesome movie! One of my favorite vampire movies!!!!
This is one of my all time favorite films... I love this genre and this story is fabulous... love the acting done by Beckinsale and Speedman... the history between werewolves and vampires is told very well... the sequel is just as good if not better... hoping it comes out on ITunes soon!
