Eh kinda descent back story that just under performs.
Poor film. Good actors do their best to save a poor script/production. Full of clichés. I guess the story is ok.
Though you can only enjoy it if you are into vampire/werewolves.
This is it. Where the franchise really started to dip. True, Evolutions drew hate from fans for not living up to the original, but I among others defended it because it was still a good film. This...well, isn't. The action is still pretty fun all things considered, but it feels lacklustre compared to the extraordinary fight scenes of the first two. The story, at this stage becomes stiflingly boring, partly because the exposition dumps placed throughout the film do nothing but bore, and also because no one really wanted to see an Underworld prequel when the current saga is still going.
Really loved it enjoyed the prequel seeing how the world of underworld started
An extraordinarily entertaining prequel to a fantastic franchise.
How can this movie be rated so low. It is a great movie
as it is necessary the presence of selene and michael in this film, but the story they tell is entertaining although the characters are not so much the same, it is a very enjoyable product.
So what is this? Another sequel to Underworld after Underworld: Evolution? No, actually. It's actually a prequel, with no Kate Beckinsale as Selene! But how is that possible? Well, it's because it's an origin story that is taken place before Selene is hunting for Lycans. Many centuries ago a werewolf battle known as Lycans are at war before Selene was born. And one vampire elder named Viktor had a daughter named Sonja and one adopted son named Lucian. Lucian escapes Viktor's fortress but is being whipped and imprisoned. And Viktor knows all about him and Sonja. Now Lucian has to go and rescue Sonja from Viktor and Lucian and the Lycans are at battle. Yeah, I can see why this is taken place and I can see why this is a prequel. Lucian is actually a bad guy in the first film and Tannis from the second film is the one who help Selene and Michael. Now then, I actually like this one because I kind of liked the idea of where it has sword fights against werewolves and castle fortresses. Don't get me wrong, I did like the Underworld fine despite it's pretnetiousness and I actually think that Underworld and Rise of the Lycans are better than each other now that is saying much. Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is an obscure film to a certain extent much like Underworld. Now that I've got that decent prequel film out of the way I am now ready to do a sequel with Kate Beckinsale returning as Selene. Stay tuned for that!
The always committed Michael Sheen takes his supporting character from the original and makes him a leading character you care about. The rest is an over the top, goth porno.
"Underworld: Rise of The Lycans" is a good prequel that keeps the exciting action sequences and tells a good backstory. But i dont find this as fun as the other 2.
