While more action than twilight, it still had a strange chick flick feel.share
Or maybe they were trying for a hybrid of the two :)share
Yes. I felt this twilight vibe to it too. To be honest I din't mind it :)share
Aside from the fact that this wasn't at all the Twilight YA crap fiction series, had a female protagonist 'WAY hotter and 'WAY more martially capable than the one in the Twilight series, and that broke about 20 rules about how to kill a vampire (e.g., poison, slitting the throat) that Twilight did not, how the living FUCK is this "like Twilight"?
This movie had a terrible script and a wretched director, so I grant it has those in common with Twilight; however, Underworld got started under the direction of Len Wiseman, a rather inventive B+ action director whom I admire. This was a sad finale to the Underworld saga, of which I have the complete set. But this is an ACTION movie, juste et toute, and not millenial bullshit teen angst heartthrob potboiler based on the erroneous belief that vampires have any human feelings whatsoever and can actually have sex. If you research vampire lore, which I have, you learn that a vampire is a demon inhabiting a corpse. Period. It is not sexy, it is disgusting. Neither Underworld nor Twilight is even close to being accurate, so, in that respect, they are similar. But Twilight is a delusional chick series, while Underworld is an inaccurate fantasy action series. Any similarities (werewolves, vampires, pop culture) are trivial. It's like saying that The Rock and Muhammad Ali are similar. Yes, they both had contests in rings. Yes, they both had muscles. I'd say that Dwayne, aided by juice, may have had 30 pounds on Ali. I would also say that Ali would have laid Dwayne out cold in two rounds. Twilight is Dwayne (whom I like, by the way, but not Twilight), and Underworld is Ali.
