Underworld 2003

Underworld ★★ 2003 (R)

Vampires and Lycans (werewolves) wage a centuries old battle of survival. The aristocratic vampires have been in control, but the lycans have a plan to turn the tide. It involves human med student Michael (Speedman), who has the blood of both in his family. Head vampire warrior Selene (Beckinsale) inexplicably falls in love with him, precipitating a final showdown. Despite the almost constant gunplay and fight scenes, style vs. substance is the overriding battle here, even though it's no contest. Substance gets its butt handed to it, suffering from the absence of allies plot and characterization. On the bright side, Beckinsale can handle the action stuff, and looks great doing it. 121m/C VHS, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
