Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars "We are not animals!" 20 Feb 2009
This prequel completes an Underworld Trilogy which up to this point has been criticised for relying on style rather than substance. But this film which charts the start of the Lycan/Vampire war gives us some character development - along with the dark, violent, yet slick visuals delivered previously.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must see movie 29 Jun 2009
This film is FANTASTIC, the special effects are great and the acting is first class. Even better than the first film in the series and happily received after the second film which I felt was disappointing. I have so looked forward to seeing this film and it is a must for blu-ray. I cannot fault it in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definately the best and strongest of the three!! 13 Feb 2011
Well written, well directed, well acted, amazing action sequences, a tragic love story and amzing cgi!!! For those who love vampire/werewolf movies then this will satisfy your hunger. It really is the best of the underworld be honest Rhona Mitre completely outshone kate beckinsdale and michael sheen cannot put a foot wrong. Bill nighy was excellent and the supporting cast was also superb. Watch it and then watch it again.....i guarantee that by the second watch it will have become your fav vampire/werewolf film too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great underworld film 28 Oct 2009
This latest Underworld film continues the strengths of the first two films with a solid plot line, very well developed characters from very good actors/actresses, and achieves a balance between these elements and the excellent special effects.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underworld 3 21 Sep 2009
A total must buy if you have the previous films, this i would say is slightly better thought of than the second Underworld film and ties in with the rest very nicely.

I would possibly rate this as one of the Underworld films best out of the 3, and gives a good incite into how the lycan and death dealers came about in the modern world from past conflicts.

If you have Underworld 1 & 2 then i would definatly suggest the purchase of the 3rd.

I thought when first purchasing the item that they may have made the 3rd one worse as what can happen with alot of films go down hill the more they make, but nope this is a very well put together film that joins the other two films together quite nicely like a jigsaw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film. 21 May 2009
By Mrs
Fantastic film, good action and Michael Sheen is great as Lucian. I think personally it is the best out of the three Underworld films. The story line remains good and the Bill Nighy is good as the our main Vampire, his ruthlesness is chilling and when he condems his daughter to death so coldly, you can see the man has no soul. I loved the film and can't wait to see Michael Sheen in the Twilight series. He looks a damn sight better in this one than he did as David Frost or Tony Blair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Brilliant 13 April 2009
This is the 3rd underworld movie and i loved it. Both the first and second underworld movies are good but this just concludes them all and lets you see into Lucians past. The love story is typical romeo and juliet but again i loved it and was almost in tears at the end. It gives it a human element instead of being ure over exaggerated action vamp movie that focuses on just bloodshed alone. Which im sure some people like but i enjoy a story behind the actions. If you liked the first movies then do watch this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good film 3 July 2012
This takes a different view from the 1st two as a prequel to the war with vampires & Lycans, we are shown what caused the war in the first place, after the revelations of the 1st two films; you have an idea what it's about. Good film in all
