|An unpolished Kate Beckinsale in 1990.|
Underworld was a decent enough movie and Kate Beckinsale is a pretty enough A-list actress, so I shouldn't complain too much when big-time Hollywood royalty play one of the un-dead. Maybe it will encourage any number of other starlets to follow her example. But therein lies some of the movies' problems; she barely had fangs, she barely used them, she never turned anyone into a vampire or bit a neck. For me it's barely a vampire movie. She didn't set a good example for Anne Hathaway as Dracula's Daughter in my fantasy movie, at all.
|Fangs good enough for apples and carrots.|
Undoubtedly, Kate's body is smokin' hot and that leather outfit was great. For a while. Until she wore the same thing through rain, mud, gunfights, fire, explosions and never a wardrobe change.
|She wore the same outfit the entire movie.|
|By the end of the movie she looked as if she could use a nice warm shower.|
As happens so many times, leave it to the yeoman actress who gets second billing to take up the star's slack and deliver the goods.
|Sophia Myles shows some decent fangage.|
