Watched Underworld: Evolution (2006) from
As the war between the vampires and the Lycans rages on, Selene, a former member of the Death Dealers (an elite vampire special forces unit that hunts werewolves), and Michael, the werewolf hybrid, work together in an effort to unlock the secrets of their respective bloodlines.

This film is an amazing example of unabashed ambition. There is almost nothing about this that is objectively good: the story is laughable, the acting is (largely) acceptable, the pacing is terrible…

(I do have to give a nod for production design because I reckon they have nailed their brief. It might be the least original brief ever “think Dracula crossed with The Matrix” but it’s there. Also, the visual effects for bat Marcus are better than some of Marvel’s most recent MCU efforts. Worthy of an extra half star.)

But it’s like no-one told anyone they were making a mediocre movie. It’s aiming for the stars across the board and while it doesn’t even make it to the moon, I still admire them for it!
