Triple bill of fantasy thrillers. Len Wiseman's directorial debut 'Underworld' (2003) sees vampires battle with werewolves. Two underground communities, the sophisticated Death Dealers (vampires), and the feral Lycans (werewolves), have been battling for supremacy and hidden from the mortal world for centuries. That is until one night when one of their battles is witnessed by a young doctor, Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman). When a leading member of the Death Dealers, Selene (Kate Beckinsale), discovers a Lycan plot to kill the doctor she decides to follow him. But the more Selene follows him, the more attracted to the man she becomes - and becomes convinced that the Lycans are planning a major attack. When Corvin is attacked by a Lycan and becomes a werewolf, and a sworn enemy of her race, Selene finds herself in a dilemma. In 'Underworld 2 - Evolution' (2006), the battle between the Death Dealers and the Lycans turns even bloodier when a beautiful young Vampire warrior and a newly-turned Lycan with a mysterious past fall in love. Finally, 'Underworld: Rise of Lycans' (2009) tells the story of the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires and their onetime werewolf slaves. In the Dark Ages, young Lycan Lucian (Michael Sheen) emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Bill 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.

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.Read more ›
P/Q is good for all 3 films and gradually increases VERY slightly with each new release, however be aware that these are very dark films using nearly exclusively night shots so there will be inevitable grain on all discs, but don't let this put you off as it adds to the atmospherics anyway!!!
A/Q is decent on underworld & underworld evolution although they are not HD Codec (note: The cases state that they are encoded with dolby digital and strangely enough so do the on screen menus, however it is actually dts running at 1.5mbps!!!) Rise of the lycans however does come with a dolby trueHD codec and the difference, although not massively, is better and is a shame the first 2 films in the trilogy were not treated to it!!!
I would def recommend as an upgrade over DVDs with the extended version of underworld 1, better P/Q by far and much better than average audio!!!
Each film comes in it's own separate case (as if your had bought the films individually), so it is not a box set in the true sense of the word (offering bespoke packaging, special artwork and extra discs etc.) but more a collection or gathering of the films into one place. Nevertheless, this trilogy is still a great addition to anyone's DVD or Bluray collection, as Underworld is probably the best modern day Vampire saga around.
Film one - Underworld:
Firstly, the boxset contains the special extended addition of the film which is great. Secondly, Underworld, as a film, really starts to come into its own once you have watched the full trilogy and go back and watch it a second time, so it's worth buying in this box set if your want to get the most out of it.
With all the different names thrown at you (about characters we don't even get to see in this first instalment) this wonderful Vampire saga can get a bit confusing first time around, but on a second viewing, after you know the whole story, things become clearer.
Kate Beckinsale is pretty much my ideal woman (in joint 1st place alongside Cheryl Cole) and she positively sizzles in her black PVC cat suit. The whole look of the film is very stylised, which I like and lit in a blue/grey manner which looks great and ads to the whole feel of the film, suiting it perfectly.
The film itself has strange mix of elements.Read more ›
When I watched the first underworld film I had no idea what it was about, which is just as well because if I knew it was about vampires and werewolves I wouldn't have touched it with a barge pole (not since being forced to watch the Twilight films Bleughhh). However, these films have restored my faith in the whole vampire v werewolf genre. After I watched the first film on DVD, I jumped in and bought the BR box set (4th film wasn't out at the time).
A dark battle across the ages between these two clans that builds as the films progress. Inevitably a cross breed comes along and throws a spanner in the works which adds to the story line. A seemingly cliché story line, but it worked for me. I was happy enough with it and enjoyed it a lot more than Twilight! After the first film, the quality drops, as is usual in a film series like this. Many would say that the franchise was milked to death after the success of Underworld, but there was something cult like about the films that kept my attention and entertained me, so much so that I bought the 4th film without even reading about it.
The Blu-Ray quality is very good especially as there are many dark scenes in it which tend to become grainy. The picture is sharp and vivid as you would expect from a good transition to BR.
Given that these are not films are good, but not great, I would have expected to see the price at around 10GBP, which is about right for many box sets of this size and type.Read more ›
