Caution required (minor spoilers)
I love the underworld saga, since I was brought up on hyper-violent movies. Although this film was undoubtedly the worst in the franchise, I still liked it, personally. Due to the questionable sex scene, I had to increase the 'age-rating', because otherwise I would have given it a 13. There were some really impressive scenes that are incredibly rewatch-able, such as the drive-fight between Marcus and Selene. The ending was one long, awesome action sequence that I greatly enjoyed. The fight on the boat was very, very cool. The movie built on the lore of the last film. In every essence, it almost ticked all the boxes neccassary for an cation-horror flick. And unfortunately, that's where the praise ends. Nowadays, the violence in this movie would be equal to that of hot fuzz. Not real violence, just tons of gore. Not only does this film add to the amount of violence there was in the first film, but it even adds CGI to it. From a critical perspective, the acting simply wasn't very good and the creature effects(i.e, the vampire and werewolf effects) weren't convincing and are really quite dated. Unless you've gotten your kids to watch the entire 'Fast and Furious' franchise since they were 6, then be cautious about watching this film with the family. In short, if you liked the first film, then you'll be disappointed yet pleased with this movie. It's basically not a movie for most Friday-night-sit-at-home-on-the-couch families, especially with young children(i.e. 0-10 year-olds).
