Michael Sheen and Bill Nighy star in this vampire thriller prequel, the third outing for the 'Underworld' fantasy franchise. The film tells the story of the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires known as Death Dealers and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, young Lycan Lucian (Sheen) emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja (Rhona Mitra), in his battle against the Death Dealer army and his struggle for Lycan freedom.

Our view of the Lycans so far has been one of savagery in comparison to the refined qualities of the Vampires, this is rebalanced in Rise of The Lycans. We see the Lycans as the slaves of the Vampire, forced to guard them during the day, and collared so that they cannot change form without fatal consequences. The Vampires still appear civilised, but it's clearly seen that their coven is built on a foundation of slavery, corruption, and exploitation.
Lucian - the first of the 'new' Lycans plans to escape and lead his own kind to freedom, only his plan is complicated by his love affair with Vampire daughter of ruling Elder, Viktor.
What ensues is an action / romance with Werewolves, Vampires, and lots medieval slashings and gore. Again a lot of effort has gone into marrying this film into the back-story already introduced during the other two films, and also into Vampire folklore itself. This means that the three films complement each other brilliantly. I've said before that the first two films certainly aren't bad - but they are best viewed together to give a true sense of the epic scope, and now with this film that sense is intensified.
The cast has been put together well and Bill Nighy seems to relish his role as Viktor. He hams it up but instead of feeling overacted, the flamboyancy adds to the Gothic theatrics of the film.Read more ›
Though it slightly lacks the impact of the first two films I watched with enjoyment and enthusiasm, only to find it ended too soon for me, I could have happily watched more. If you are an underworld fan, then I'm sure you will like it as much as I do.
I am aware they left the second one open for a follow up so there could be an underworld 4 as this one isn't a continuation after the 2nd one, and is set before the first story and history behind some flash backs thats seen in the 1st 2 underworlds.
In most cases by the time we get to a third one , it gets boreing after a while, and the reinact all the same thigns over and over, but good news, in this case its different, still very exicing and a wonderful storyline to follow through, actually I think it's very well done considering int he first one when we breifly see sonja its a different actrress to the one who plays her in uinderworld 3, but sttill quite close to the flash backs in the first 2, Sonja is played by Rhona Mitra, I have saw Rhon a mitra in doomsday and she did a great job in that as well, I wil be watching this one.
Again and again because its just so exciting and sush a great storyline, and of course so sqeamish bits as well, and lastly has to be said bill nighy just plays Viktor so briliantly as always, he really is an amazeing actor, and certainly looks the part too lol, he has always been such a good actor from shaun of the ead to the boat that rocked,,wonderfully diverse but him playing Viktor is my favourrite with philip ion shan of the dead as a second lol...brilliant cast of people in this too lucian is very good too, great actors and great storyline = a great flick...
