In the interests of self-preservation, the humans are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species. Silly humans. Do they really think they're going to win?

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconIt doesn't even have the scope for the cheesy over-the-top acting of the third film, or even the stylish feel of the original.
Die Burger
Laetitia Pople quote icon'Underworld'-vampiere nou in 3D, maar kort steeds byt.
