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.

Rise of the Lycans follows the first films pacing allowing more room for the story to breath and grow, rather than the constant action fest that was Evolution. So that while it lacks obvious punch it stands well for those who like a film to absorb you into its world rather than batter you with it.
A sometime problem with prequels is that you know what is going to happen, as long as you were paying even the slightest bit of attention to the first two films that is. As such there aren't many surprises as to how things turn out, but here the journey to that end is incredibly interesting to watch and is done in a way which keeps the story feeling fresh and compelling right to the very end, it works so well like this that it stands well as a self contained story in its own right.
While Evolution was an amazingly good film it did sacrifice a little for its ramped up action, which while not necessarily a bad thing did seem to lose itself a bit of the originals `edge' Rise of the Lycans recovers that edge and in fine form. Consider this another must watch Underworld film, just like all the others.
The combat in this movie is not high tec for obvious reasons. The battles are swords and arrows against claws and teeth. There is plenty of gore and some good set pieces and because this is a prequal the ground work is already there and because the franchise is not as big as some others it gets away with a little more.
The picture quality of the blu ray is excellent though the sound does not seem as good as the first two movies and the disc is a little lite on features.
In closing if you liked the first two then this is more of the same with a slighty different perspective watch this first then Underworld and you get a better feel for it all. A good little action horror flick and at a little over an hour and a half its not gonna take up your entire evening.
I had to have it in collection,i still haven,t watched the fourth one yet,but this is really cheap on amazon for the bluray of it,graphics and special effects are brilliant,ideal with a few beers chilling out.
