The Worst ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ Reviews: Critics Are Raving!
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving!, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving! is all about.
On our seventh episode: Vampires and werewolves (excuse me, Lycans) clash! And then critics clash with both over Underworld: Blood Wars, the fifth installment in the inexplicably long-running series about the endless war between bloodsuckers and dogmen over, oh I dunno, who gets to eat more people or some such. None of the Underworld movies have been wildly popular with critics, but Blood Wars earned some of the worst reviews of the franchise’s history. (Only 2006’s Underworld: Evolution has a lower Rotten Tomatoes score.) And of the worst reviews, here are the best, in a brand-new Critics Are Raving! trailer.
This is our seventh Critics Are Raving! trailer, but there are more on the way — if you’ve got a movie you’d like to see featured, let us know in the comments section below or send us a tweet or Facebook message. In the meantime, check out some past Critics Are Raving! trailers. You will be raving about them when you’re finished.
