The main problem with the movie is that if you´ve seen the first two you know what will happen so there isn´t much suspense. On the other hand I wouldn´t recommend watching it at first because than it takes away something from the earlier movies. In itself it is not a bad movie. So there is your dilemma.

>"I should have crushed you under my heel the day you were born." Not sure if we needed this one. It was cool to see as a beginning to Underworld but due to the first movie we already knew what was going to happen. I will say though, Michael Sheen looks even better here than he did before and Bill Nighy is always a treasure.

Kate Beckinsale may be absent from this entry, but the return of Michael Sheen and Bill Nighy is a welcome one as the film delves into much of the backstory set up by the original. It's highly derivative, much like the previous entries, mimicking in particular the Helms Deep sequence from Lord of the Rings, and unfortunately the film can't quite escape the feeling that it is all rather pointless, given that the essential plot points have previously been revealed. Still, Sheen does well with what little material there is to work with and Bill Nighy is always entertaining.

Prequel time...with no Kate Beckinsale, nor Len Wiseman. This doesn't really matter that much, as we get Rhona Mitra as the heroine, and Michael Sheen is back playing Lucian.

The directors' chair, that Wiseman vacated, was taken over b More

I should have crushed you under my heel the day you were born.

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is the prequel to the previous two Underworld films. It tells the story about what led to the werewolf/vampire feud, with bloody energetic results.

In core essence this is Braveheart/Spartacus, only i More

No idea why the rating for this flick is hovering just above 50"%. As far as prequels go this one is brilliant. The first movie left a lot of gaps in the story, where did Lucian come from, what started the war, how did he get to be the lover of the King's daughter in the first place. While there More
