5.0 out of 5 stars Blood Sugar Sexy Gothic, 8 Dec 2009
This review is from: Underworld Trilogy [DVD] (DVD)
All three features are supplied in individual jewel cases housed in a cardboard box with the first instalment being a two-disc set and the other two features supplied in single disc format with extras; so, it will take up a lot of room on your self but no slim line version has been released to date. Below is a brief synopsis of all three parts to give insight to those who haven't yet witnessed the gory fun.

Underworld introduces us to the fierce Death Dealer Selene (Kate Beckinsale) who believes that her fellow Vampire Kraven is conspiring with arch enemy Lucian (Michael Sheen) so she abruptly awakens the aristocratic Vampire leader Viktor (Bill Nighy) long before his reign is due to commence. To escape the wrath of the elders she must prove that Lucian is alive and Kraven is a traitor. Lucian is tracking down human mortal Michael (Scott Speedman) because he believes him to be a direct descendant of Alexander Corvinus (Derek Jacobi) and the perfect, compatible specimen to mix the bloodlines of the two rival species, thus creating a super race strong enough to exact his revenge and defeat his nemesis Viktor.

Underworld: Evolution, Markus Corvinus has reclaimed his position as leader of the vampire covenant and his quest is to find a key and the location of his Lycan brother William who was imprisoned by Viktor for his savage nature so he can set him free. When Markus was re-awakened from his slumber his blood was inadvertently mixed with that of Lycan, thus transforming him into a hybrid species and making him believe that he is now strong enough to control his animalistic brother, William Corvinus. Standing in his way with her piercing ice blue eyes, big fangs and blood soaked lips is the uber sexy; leather clad Selene, looking hotter than a freshly scorched badger's fanny on a highway. Well, it gets my blood pumping.

Rise Of The Lycans is a prequel explaining how the feud between the two species began. Viktor rules his covenant with an iron fist and uses the lycan race as slaves but unbeknownst to him is the fact that his daughter Sonja is in love with Lucian, the first Lycan to be able to metamorphosize between human form and werewolf; Sonja is pregnant carrying the first mixed blood entity of the two rival species. This instalment has a stronger gothic atmosphere and excellent usage of CGI. Bill Nighy is on excellent form as Viktor making him possibly the greatest Vampire in big screen history since the mighty Christopher Lee. This is my favourite part of the trilogy simply because it gives more meaning and clout to the other two parts and it should ultimately be watched first. An outstanding box set loaded with hours of blood soaked fun and great value for money (at the time of writing this review).
