When I shared the trailer for the latest installment in the “Underworld” series I said how I loved these films and now the day has arrived because the film “Underworld: Blood Wars” is opening today. Check out the poster, premise and some of the cast and know that I will close up with some added thoughts.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I was really psyched to see the film in the theater but I did some looking back and apparently I never saw the fourth installment of the franchise. Oh well, perhaps I can find it somewhere on one of the numerous channels or on streaming service and then catch this a little later on. It does look good and I’ve already said how I liked the first three films. Good monster fighting fun and that is all there is to it. So what about you readers? Will you be catching this one in the cinema halls or waiting until its on home video or streaming somewhere? Let me know in the comments below and please no spoilers since that isn’t very nice for those of us who plan on catching it. Remember that plenty of other film details can be learned via the official Wikipedia entry below but be advised to not open this link once the film has opened up anywhere as they become loaded with crucial plot spoilers.
