Underworld ★★½

Elevating this otherwise derivative movie about an ancient vampire/werewolf blood feud is its willingness to embrace being a coming of age tale of a woman who realizes her dad is an asshole, and its willingness to shoot (at least some) practical werewolf prosthetics. Between this, Pearl Harbor, and The Aviator, was this Kate Beckinsale at the height of her powers??

I did what was necessary to protect the species, as I am forced to do yet again.
