Overview

The Underworld series gets the prequel treatment with this third outing that fleshes out the story of the ancient war between the vampiric Death Dealers and their wolfman counterparts, the Lycans. F/X technician Patrick Tatopoulos (Godzilla, Independence Day) steps out of the effects lab and into the director's chair with this entry, which sees stars Bill Nighy returning as Viktor, the king of his vampire clan and father to Sonja (Rhona Mitra), a free-minded heir who tests her parent by heading outside of their castle's borders and doing battle with the ravenous werewolves of the surrounding area. Sonja also has a secret love affair with Lucian (Michael Sheen), the first of the Lycans, a race of lycanthropes who were bred by the vampires to be slaves and protectors to the bloodsucking clan. As the news of their love spreads to Viktor, ranks of the vampire elite help Lucian escape, leading to a revolution of the Lycans against their masters and setting up the mythology of the later latexed adventures featured in Len Wiseman's two previous films.

When I heard about this movie I thought it was gonna be classic because it had all the elements of a great fantasy film. Dramatic war and tragic romance. I felt the story could have been done a little better. It was entertaining but they're was nothing that stood out from the first 2. I dont know how to explain it but there was something mising here. Still good but Id say its just average.

Actually the first of the trilogy if you follow the plot, this film explains the history of the Lycan uprising. Entertaining, not intellectual. Dark movie with quite a bit of gore, but a worthwhile viewing!

The whole story is very sad. It's also incredibly violent. The whipping scenes were a little to long and hard to watch. Don't watch this with children.
