Selene (Beckinsale) makes an alliance with her former coven, which fears an attack from the werewolves. The world's dullest vampires are back, still droning on about the same old back-story, and engaging in poorly staged and repetitive action sequences. Beckinsale does her very best, but this franchise is long overdue for a stake through the heart.
