I can't imagine this being as big without Selene. :monkey2

I would have preferred another sequel over a prequel, but again I'll reserve judgement until I see it. (That doesn't mean I didn't want to see Selene again though!!!!)

To bad the werewolves look like crap in this one. At least the ones in the first and second one weren't so CGIed. I think the studios are feeding to much on that stuff. Please bring back old school movie magic!!!!

CGI is never done by the first trailer. Look at Iron Man. The first trailer had awful CGI, now look at it.

I have no interest in seeing it. I liked both Underworld and Underworld:Evolution, but the main reason I liked it was Kate Beckinsale's Selene. Without Selene, I'm just not interested.

I thought that as well, but Bill Nigh will hold it together for me. I do like the medieval look of this one. It'd be nice if they could also include some plot points for a possible 4th movie post Evolution film.

With Selene, since this one is before Selene exists.

But this one looks better than I thought it'd be, after first hearing about it I thought it would be bad but it doesn't seem that way.

Although I wish they wouldn't have used the same music that was used in the Max Payne trailer, they should be more creative because there's lots of really good music that hasn't been used yet.

The movie rocks! Watched it at 1130 (local) only about 10 people at the show. So much better than the first Underworld, which would have been ok if it wasn't for Selene's vampire "wannabe mate." Really cool. 5 of 5 stars!

Rhona Mitra looks very much like Beckinsale as Selene...maybe they are trying to make some people thing she is in it. This feels kind of like a B-movie compared to the others, hopefully they have the budget and callibur of actors to make this thing work. I love the lycan storyline though.

Let me just say that I am a pretty big fan of the first two films so take that for what it is worth.

The New film Underworld: Rise of The Lycans ROCKED!!!!!!!!!!

I liked it better then the first two films. I was worried about Patrick Tatopoulos being in the director's chair but he did a fine job. The script was tight and the action fun

Bill Nighy was great again as Viktor and Rhona Mitra did a good job filling in as the new (or is that old) sexy leather clad vampire love intrest. But Michael Sheen as Lucian owned this film. His preformance was great. I really felt for him when he watched his love die. And was right there with him when he took his revenge.

I thought the love story in this one flowed better compared to the first film. Even though I knew the outcome I was still hoping that they would make it. Big props to the script and the predormances for that one.

Anyways If you liked the first two films then I am sure you will enjoy this one. If you don't like the first two films then why are you reading this??

(having not seen it yet)

I'd say, yes and no. No, because its a prequel, and it tells the story BEFORE the first two...but a yes because you may not catch some important details...but I dont know for sure....so go see it, and if you like it, watch the other two.

Saya
01-23-2009, 09:47 PM
I can't wait to see this. I own the first two. I love anthing vampire and werewolf! And I think these were really original in the way they created the whole lineage of vamp and weres beginings.I also think that the middle ages is the perfect setting for these creatures. AWSOME! I haven't seen any figures for these though. too bad to cause the weres would be mad crazy.

Yes, consider this the first movie (which it is in their timeline), and forget the two others. This is a great stand alone movie. The second one is ok, if you can forget/ignore the miserable acting of the vampire "wannabe boyfriend" of Selene.

I wish there were statues, dioramas or even HT figures for this movie and the characters. Vampires in armor, sword replicas, Sonja, Victor, Lucian. There hasn't been any good vampire or werewolf flicks so this is a great time to energize both species.

Because it didn't look as bad as the first two, and because Rhona Mitra is hot and because Bill Nighy rocks the socks so I was curious if someone who thought the first two were terrible could possibly enjoy this one.

I never had much respect for this franchise, I have the first on DVD because I think Kate looks cool in it. But I just watched the first again before seeing the 3rd and it's growing on me. There's a lot going on with the mythology - it's very rich and Lucian has really become a tragic character with the 3rd film. But in hindsight, he was already well developed and consistent in the 1st. But I'd agree that this one is the best - sure it's goth and over the top, but in a cool way - I love Rhona Mitra (but then I loved her in Doomsday too).

There's a lot you won't pick up on if you haven't seen the first film, but not enough to dampen the enjoyment of this one. Normally you don't look for consistent characters in a franchise like this, but not only Lucian but Viktor are very rich in their development.

And Lucian - no one else has commented - this guy stars in an academy award nominated film this year (Frost/Nixon) and then turns around and plays a werewolf - now that's class.

Well said man... I wholeheartedly agree. I liked the first film ok, really didn't like the second one. So when my Wife's friend and her boyfriend bought us tickets for it, I was a bit skeptical about it. I liked Sheen as an actor (Lucian), as well as Mitra and Nighy... so that gave me hope. I also loved that it was going to be set so far back in time... Anything with swords and you can color me interested at least a bit.

Once the movie started going, I was really impressed with how they handled it. The film is definitely my favorite of the three now, and it makes the first one even better now by association. Sheen did a phenomenal job in this one, I liked him even more after seeing it. And the transformations were very well done, not at all clunky like they used to be. Overall, it was a damn great movie.

i'm putting this in spoiler tags:
there isn't much mention of william, nor does he make an appearance on screen. also, Sonja dies towards the end of the movie, which according to the storyline would mean that Viktor would've run into Selene's family after this point because "Selene reminded him too much of his daughter Sonja" putting it well after he killed her off
i'm hoping they'll expand the "Lycan Upcrising" storyline with another movie during this period instead of the Evolutions' timeframe.

selene is seen playing with the necklace/key as a little girl while her dad is building williams tomb in a flashback in Evolutions. i thought that took place before it wound up with sonja.

They've played a little fast and loose with continuity, but from a character POV, it only makes sense if Selene comes after Sonja. Viktor seeking to replace his lost daughter and all...

And I really hope Sheen hasn't gotten too big for his britches with all the accolades for Frost/Nixon and will make more films.

However I just read today, that they're talking about a TV series. That could be pretty cool if they don't cheap out on it.

Bill Nighy in a tv series... sign me up. Big Viktor fan, so other than the flashback at the beginning of Evolution I was largely disappointed. I LOVE the first movie though, and being that it takes the regal roots of the characters back to the dark ages, I know I'm going to like what I see. I for one can't wait. It's the past of the Vampires and Lycans in these movies that has always intrigued me the most.

Rhona Mitra is HOT!

I loved the first Underworld, was underwhelmed by the second, and blown away by this one.

I remember back in the days when Rhona Mitra's hotness graced Boston Legal on a weekly basis. It was nice to see her again, and in more provocative scenes than courtroom contention. In the love-making scene with Lucian and Sonja, I so damn envious of Lucian when Sonja was on top of his lower body as his upper body dangled off the cliff edge. Now THAT'S living.

And I was extremely surprised that they humanized Viktor; he was always portrayed as an unsympathetic despotic overlord devoid of compassion, save that which he uniquely extended to Selene. Very cool that they managed to make him relatable in some instances, while also playing up the fact that he remains an outrageously malicious bastard. The disparity between the appearance of William's lycans and Lucian's, the ballista defense mounts around the Vampire keep, their system governing relations with humans, seeing Death-Eaters for the first time, and all of the kickass action sequences (the fight between Viktor and Lucian was a particular highlight). Best. Underworld. Yet.

Lol...this is why I don't like the second one that much. So much going on at once that you don't really know WTF is going on onscreen.

And I agree with the Werewolf effects. I prefer CGI effects to be used as a tool for when practical effects are not possible (transformations, crazy stuntwork).
