The third Underworld Movie, being a prequel to the earlier movies with Kate Beckinsale as Selene. It was released to the cinema yesterday (Friday, Janurary 24th), and I went to watch it yesterday too. The film was good. Lots of blood, lots of gore, lots of special effects, and a somewhat good storyline, even though there was a significant number of aspects that weren't explained. When the film finished though, I was sat there thinking 'Is that it?'. We are told various things from the older films, about Lucian, that it seemed, didn't matter in this prequel.

Spoiler: Show
Firstly, in the first Underworld film, there is a piece of Lucians skin, attached to a book (this was suposidbly taken from him by a Vampire which killed him). This scene was completely missed in the film, and wasn't even hinted at.

In addition, Victor:

Spoiler: Show
He was stabbed through the head (by Lucian), and yet, was walking at the end. Sure Vampires are tough, but you don't get up from that, regardless of whether you were immortal or not.

There was some good fight scenes though, and, there was a sort of Higher Archy going on. Vampires were so say, protecting Humans (their food supply) from the Lycans, though also had various dealings with them. The way that was portrayed was quite good I thought. Overall, the film was kind of average. There were a few laughable moments in it too, though not many. I think also, that they've left the film open for another one, though only time will tell on that.

I think they were both good in their roles, for different reasons. They both played a different part, and they're characters worked well.

I don't know what century it was, but it was a prequel yeah. They were all using Horses for travel, and Swords for fighting etc. Sort of a Medieval take on the Underworld story.

Victor is played by the same Actor, as is Lucian. There is another guy, can't remember his name, but he plays a Lycan (well built black guy)? - he gets killed in Underworld 1. All of the other people are new, none of which carry on to the older movies.

great, all the normal actors are the same but the most important and the hottest chick is of course, a different actor with way bigger tits! What a casting, what a tool!

Good though the film was it reminded me that Western movie studios have little to no idea how to film a good action sequence.

Having not watched the previous movies, would it be worth seeing for the sheer vampire vs. werewolf action?
