Underworld is an action-packed movie that debuted in 2003. The film starred the talented Kate Beckinsale as Selene and Scott Speedman as Michael Corvin, with Shane Brolly as Kraven. It was directed by Len Wiseman and scored by Paul Haslinger. Selene is a vampire who is part of an elite group called the Death Dealers. They are at war with the Lycans, also known as werewolves. The war between the two species dates back centuries, and both sides are determined to come up on top. Selene has always been loyal to her vampire clan, but her life takes a sharp turn when she goes against their orders and falls in love with Michael, a human.

Selene has always been fascinated by the history of her kind and the Lycans. Her knowledge extends to the ancient feud between the two species, and she has always been determined to do her part in the war. She learns of a prophecy that a hybrid of a vampire and a Lycan will arise as the ultimate powerful being, one who could tip the balance of power between the two factions.

Selene's beliefs are tested when she uncovers new truths about the Lycans and the true history of the war. As she falls deeper in love with Michael, she discovers that he is somehow linked to the prophecy. To make matters worse, the vampire clan is on the verge of a civil war as some members are ready to side with the Lycans.

As the war between the two groups brews, Selene and Michael soon find themselves fighting their own battles as the dark secrets of their pasts emerge. They will stop at nothing to protect each other and fight for what they believe in, but can they survive in a world where everything they knew is not what it seemed?

Underworld is a thrilling movie that blends action and horror. The visual effects are stunning, bringing to life the elaborate costumes and detailed makeup of the vampires and Lycans. The movie's dark tone is set through the use of dim lighting and fast-paced action scenes that keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

Kate Beckinsale delivers a strong performance as Selene. Her character is fierce, determined, and unafraid to do what it takes to win a war. She is a trained fighter, skilled in using her weapons and physical abilities to take on her enemies. Beckinsale portrays Selene's emotional struggle in balancing her love for Michael and her loyalty to her clan, resulting in a layered character with a depth of emotion.

Scott Speedman also gives an excellent performance as Michael. His character is initially presented as a regular human, but as the story progresses, we see his identity shrouded in mystery. Michael's journey in discovering the secrets of his past is intriguing and keeps audiences engaged.

Shane Brolly plays Kraven, a vampire who sought to gain power within the vampire clan. Kraven is manipulative, selfish, and willing to do whatever it takes to gain power, making him an equally compelling character.

Overall, Underworld is an engaging movie that will leave viewers wanting more. The movie's theme of the age-old battle between light and dark, good and evil, is an age-long staple in storytelling, but the film offers a unique twist on the traditional vampire and werewolf narrative. The chemistry between the lead actors and the impressive visuals make Underworld a must-watch for fans of the action-horror genre.

Underworld is a 2003 fantasy movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 1 minute. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.0 and a MetaScore of 42.
