Recently, the movie Underworld: Blood Wars trailer has arrived. Impressive and atmospheric trailer creates the good expectation from the oncoming movie.
But despite the good charges, allowing the cycle of » Underworld » to pay off without any budget cuts, and a relatively good score of audiences and critics, it remains on the sidelines of cinema. It feels that all, including the creators, understand that this is not an expensive than the fan fiction, in any case, does not claim to high art.
Director of picture Anna Foerster that mainly directing episodes and «Blood Wars» it is also suited to the serial pragmatism, like the previous part left in hire only a week ago. Reminding the audience, who is who, the authors do not intend to, rushing from the screen names of the missing characters and hardly mentioning the events of previous parts. On the other hand, trying to remember who is this Thomas by Charles Dance, and figured if in the last part of the character of Lara Pulver, is a maximum of mental activity, you can count on during playback. For intrigue here is issued a fairly straightforward attempt vampire Semira to bend under him the power to the coven, but otherwise, it is «fight» movie, in which there is no room for anything other than blows, shots, and jumps.
