The prequel story traces the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, a young Lycan named Lucian emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor, the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja, in his battle against the Vampire army and his struggle for Lycan freedom. Written by
While filming this movie, Michael Sheen was asked by Ron Howard if he could record a quick moment of dialogue for Frost/Nixon (2008). Sheen, covered in fake blood from the days filming, went to his trailer and recorded the dialogue. He asked someone to take a picture of him doing it and sent it to Ron Howard, who had it framed and displayed. See more »
Just before Lucian tears up the grate to go to Sonja, he is watching the vampires unceremoniously shove the Lycans around. In the first shot of him, his hair is completely out of his face, then it cuts back to the Lycans. In the next shot of Lucian, his hair is very in his face. Then, after another shot of the Lycans putting down axes and such, it goes back, and Lucian's hair is completely out of his face again. See more »
If I were to leave from here, would you come with me?
Leave? Do not say that, do not even think it. My father would have you hunted down and marked like all the others.
[Talking about his collar]
Not if I can remove this.
[Shows her a key]
I made it myself. This will be my freedom.
Lucian, promise me you will not use it. Please!

If you are a fan of either of the first two Underworld movies you are going to like this one as well. This movie seems to take place a short time after the creation of both races but some time before the events that open Underworld Evolution. The entire story of the feud between the vampires and lycans is told in 90 minutes with plenty of action interspersed throughout. My only complaint is that the movie could have been longer with more character development. An hour and a half is hardly enough time to tell a love story, which is what is at the heart of this movie. Also, a little more depth could have been given to Raze's character as his origins are shown but not in much detail. These plot points are sacrificed to keep the action scenes rolling but the action is great. There are several clashes between vamps and lycans that put those of the first two movies to shame. The special effects are amazing as usual. My hope is that Rise of the Lycans will do well at the box offices and we will all be treated to an extended directors cut on DVD. The plot themes of slavery, forbidden love, and revolution could use a little more screen time in my opinion. Oh and lets all hope for another sequel.
