Time Out says
Swedish joint-directors Måns Marlind and Björn Stein, who previously made the preposterous supernatural thriller ‘Shelter’, make a wolf’s breakfast of everything. Not only do they fail to explain or expand the series’ overarching mythology, they completely fail to capitalise on the potential of the new story elements. By way of compensation, they offer surprisingly nasty 3D violence and messily choreographed fight scenes featuring more wire-work than a computer factory. Beckinsale looks as fetching as ever in her skin-tight latex outfit, but not even her much-anticipated return can enliven the proceedings. One feels sorry, too, for striking 19-year-old actress Eisley, whose portrayal of Selene’s daughter is every bit as blank as her character’s naiveté leads one to expect. By the same token, Rea’s hopelessly underdeveloped villain barely registers. Crude, cheap and pointless, this surely drives a stake through the heart of the ‘Underworld’ franchise.
