Kate Beckinsale still looks supernaturally good in a patent leather cat suit in Underworld: Awakening, the franchise’s fourth chapter, which was shot in 3-D, but is one-dimensional in every other sense. The movie is set amidst a battle between humankind, drop-undead gorgeous vampires, and feral werewolves. Why are they fighting again? Never you mind. Just sit tight till the next action sequence (it won’t be long), and get ready to laugh — with equal parts scorn and fanboy joy — as Beckinsale strikes another Rodinesque pose under a slo-mo shower of inhuman innards.
