 "Underworld" - Salon
"Underworld" is a dark, dank morass of a horror/fantasy epic, all faux-Wachowski action scenes and dim blue light and thumping industrial music and dripping pseudo-Gothic interiors and Kate Beckinsale cramming her cute English schoolgirl figure into a pleather cat suit.
If anything, "Underworld" is an overly detailed slice of a new fantasy universe, one just as concerned with delivering a convoluted saga as with chills, thrills, ass-kicking and vampire babes in bodices and cat suits.
To some extent, "Underworld" is supposed to be the story of how Selene falls in love with Michael, who is completely off limits because he's: 1) a regular old lowly human and 2) possibly not human but actually a Lycan, which is worse.

 Underworld Movie Review at Hollywood Video
Underworld is 150-proof Goth, which means that those of us who aren't familiar with the lifestyle and its conventions are going to be completely lost and basically view the film as a two hour plotless excuse for excessive violence and really, really bad acting.

Underworld has the look and feel of a classic comic strip, but upon closer inspection, it’s every bit as warped, biting, and hilarious as today’s jaded audiences demand.
Underworld is stuffed with almost-parodies of famous comic strip characters, featuring a healthy dose of cigarette smoking cats, cute little saccharin-cuddly creatures, grim reapers, media-damaged kids, and more — all destined for a sardonic smashing in typically-acerbic Kaz fashion.
Kaz’s Underworld has been entertaining weekly newspaper readers for over a decade now, and each volume collects two riotous years of the strip.

this is a brilliant and impressive book, "Underworld," Don DeLillo's 11th novel and the story of over 50 years of American life, bracketed by a legendary baseball game in 1951 and a peculiar cyberspace epiphany in the present.

Nick Shay, the alienated hero of "Underworld," contemplates the handsome lines of his wife's face, which reminds him of the woman's profile carved on bars of Camay soap, and the comparison doesn't feel vulgar because DeLillo's fundamentally incapable of vulgarity.

 Underworld, MP3 Music Download at eMusic
The trio's two-man frontline, vocalist Karl Hyde and guitarist Rick Smith, had been recording together since the early-'80s new wave explosion; after two unsuccessful albums released as Underworld during the late '80s, the pair finally hit it big when they recruited Darren Emerson, a young DJ hipped to the sound of techno and trance.
Unlike the first, the LP also sold well, thanks in part to the non-album single "Born Slippy," featured on the soundtrack to the seminal film Trainspotting.

 Underworld
Unlike so many other entries in its genre, "Underworld" started out as neither a video game nor a comic book, but rather as a conversation between director Len Wiseman and friend Kevin Grevioux that led to a story of Shakespearean proportions that recast the Montagues and Capulets as werewolves and vampires.
Engaged in a centuries-old struggle, the future of both the sophisticated vampires and the feral lycans is about to be threatened by a nefarious scheme that would see the creation of a new interbred species that would combine the strengths of both underworld races.
Selene (Beckinsale), a top-ranking member of the Death Dealers, an elite vampire warrior class committed to hunting the lycans into extinction, stumbles onto that ulterior motive after she uncovers a lycan plot to kidnap a human doctor (Scott Speedman).
