This review is from: Underworld 3: Rise Of The Lycans [DVD] (DVD)
I wasn't holding out huge hopes for this, the first two films were just about OK, there is no Kate Beckinsale this time, and I wondered if the franchise could stretch to another episode. But in fact this might even be the best of the bunch.
The plot is predictable, but like the first borrows a bit from Romeo and Juliet - never a bad source. By and large you know where it going to go after the first 20 minutes. What lifts it though is that we get more of the excellent Bill Nighy & Michael Sheen, actors good enough to make even some ropy dialogue work, Rhona Mitra is also good once you get over her not being Kate Beckinsale.
Other wise it's alternately dark and brooding / violent and noisy. With more than a hint of Lord of the Rings in the Vampire castle.
A decent way to pass a couple of hours with a pizza and a couple of bottles of beer!
