Zita Görög, who plays Amelia, had to have her lines dubbed over because the microphones didn't pick up her voice. See more »
During several scenes in the fortress, Selene empties her guns. After her pistols are empty the slides lock back but you can still hear click, click, click. That would be impossible as when the slide locks back you can't pull the trigger. The same happens when she empties her rifle and the bolt locks back. See more »
OK sequel to UNDERWORLD will appeal to its core audience and few others. Too many flashbacks to the first movie do little to explain what is going on in the sequel -- that is, to the uninitiated and people like myself who hasn't seen the original in awhile. The plot is thin, although the action is fast and furious as vampire/warrior Kate Beckinsale is again on the track of those who threaten to destroy the world. Good-looking nonactor Scott Speedman is back as her love interest, himself a combination of vampire and werewolf who is virtually indestructible. And knowing this takes away some of the fun toward the end when the big fight is on and the chips are really down. But enough said about that. Beckinsale looks great in skin-tight black leather, and has a quasi-nude love scene with Speedman. The gore quotient is fully realized, thankfully. The monsters are great-looking, and the atmospheric photography and sets are first rate. Nevertheless, recommended only for fans of the first.
