This film should obviously be included in the list of the ’50 most shocking films’. But I will say more, he seems to unite and summarize them. Have you ever been bothered and horrified by the movie Hounded? So this film seems to be another variation on the theme. At the same time, all with the same Dakota Fanning. I do not know why this sweet girl is so attracted to directors who intend to make films based on such bloodthirsty violent scenarios, but she seems to be becoming one of the main representatives of the genre.
The film is called ‘Underworld’ for a reason. It contains almost all the sins that a person can come to mind. Violence, prostitution, incest, murder, animal abuse and more. A portion of hate for the rest of your life. Throughout the film you are waiting for at least a bit of pity for the heroes, for some light at the end of the tunnel. But ahead is only a gaping void, irreversibility. (Although even if you recall something similar in the manner of narration of Gaspar Noe’s masterpiece, then there was more hope for the future).
The reaction of the audience was the same. By the end, everyone, almost in unison, prayed for salvation – both the heroine and us. But as a result, for two and a half hours, we only endure torment and follow the road of sorrow. Those with stronger nerves just shyly lower their eyes, while the faint-hearted guys are desperately waiting for completion, spinning in a chair. By the end, it doesn’t even matter which one.
But, despite the absolutely rejecting script, the acting is at its best. It can be seen that the 6 years spent filming the film were not in vain. Dakota Faning played her part one hundred percent. It’s hard to imagine what the actress had to let through, but she wanted to believe her suffering and courage. Guy Pearce is by far the worst villain in the world. Complete reincarnation. And in general, the cast is just wonderful.
Summing up, I want to say that tragedy is the norm for dramatic storytelling. Both in books and in movies. No one is interested in looking at absolutely happy people who do not have any problems. But even in this you need to know when to stop. A person needs to be given hope. And here she is not.
