There are two parts of the movie, the story and the action.
The story in itself is a cliffhanger which explains why some people didn't like the film. In the book world, this movie is what you call the "filler volume". Selene throughout the movie was trying to chase her daughter and searching for Michael while stopping nasty engineered Lycans in between. The exciting part is Selene and Michael has a daughter who has a British accent despite the fact that she grew up in a lab surrounded by Americans (just nitpicking here lol) and shares a special bond with her parents. She can share visions with both Selene and Michael. Michael is MIA throughout the movie and I'd like to hope and think that there will be a fifth one. By then I'm praying that Scott Speedman will be available to reprise his role.

I'm a fan of Werewolves but for a change I found myself rooting for Vampires this time around. The Lycans in this movie are almost invincible and they're not canine but more like rabid bears! Kate Beckinsale was just superb as Selene, she IS Selene period. Her stunts are fantastic but I feel like she was more "active" in the previous movies compared to this. I felt bad for Michael Ealy's character and towards the end I was hoping they'd turn him. That David played by Theo James got my knickers in a bunch and I wish his character was more developed (for now I'd settle for Downton Abbey's S1 E3).
Nonetheless, I hope Kate's beloved hubby, Len Wiseman, writes the screenplay for the fifth one SOON!
