Has anyone seen Underworld? I want to know if it's any good. It looks kind of dark and scary, which would be cool. I also happen to think that Kate Beckinsale is hot, and am interested in how well she pulls off an action role. Anyway, anyone got an opinion?

Well, according to John Moore (a somehow famous critic of around here), it looks good until youve actually seen the movie.
I on the other hand have not seen it, but Ill tell you about it when (and if) I see it

I saw it and thought it was awesome. I'm a big fan of Blade and Blade 2 so I knew I'd like Underworld. It has a lot of great action.

Seen it ^_^ it's good, but not STELLAR. With few exceptions, there's a lack of character development in the story...but, well, let me put it this way. It's set up like a comicbook, right up to the very last scene that screams "SETTING UP FOR ISSUE TWO!"

The atmosphere is excellent and there's some pretty kewl scenes, and there are good character moments to be had, and very nice history/mythology setup. If that's what you're looking for, then go see it ;)

From what I got of the IGN FilmForce review, it seems like it's a good concept and a fun ride, but the director (a first-timer) makes some mistakes that most newcomers do, such as trying to cram too many ideas in one movie.

I may check it out... after Once Upon a Time in Mexico!
