Synopsis: Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) fights to end the eternal war between the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her.

Reaction: Enjoyable but not particularly surprising. There are some key plot points that are a bit too predictable. But if you've enjoyed the series thus far, I find this one better than Awakenings.
