Kate Beckinsale, Kris Holden-Reid, Stephen Rea, Theo James, India Eisley and Michael Ealy
This gripping action packed 4th movie in the series recalls the turbulent past of Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and the battle between the Vampire and Lycan clans.
We find Selene frozen in a "cryostasis" labelled 'Subject 1' along side her are 2 other 'coffins' with Subject 0 and Subject 2. It's been 12 years since her epic battle with the Lycans and the world is now fighting united against the 'non humans'.
Selene is faced with a world she doesn't know and missing Michael. Her only link is a hybrid child.
Theo James is stellar as the Vampire David, struggling to get from under his father's passive nature and fight for the Vampire nation. Stephen Rea, Michael Ealy and India Eisley deliver outstanding performances in their supportive roles.
The breakout of Kris Holden-Reid (Lost Girl fame) onto the big screen as the Lycan Quint (a Lycan that has been genetically altered with the hybrid's blood) is brilliant. His raw talent and superb portrayal as a mutated werewolf in battle with Selene over 'Eve' aka (subject 2) will propel him to stardom in a hurry.
Kate Beckinsale is exquisite once again as Selene and she is the anchor to the series's success and future. Her exotic looks combined with brilliant acting make her a catch for any director.
This movie leaves the movie goer anxious to find Michael and see the reuniting of the family as a whole. There is a definite draw for another film in this remarkable series.
