Storyline

Mankind discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan species and they begin a war to annihilate the races. When Selene meets with Michael in the harbor, they are hit by a grenade and Selene passes out. Twelve years later, Selene awakes from a cryogenic sleep in the Antigen laboratory and meets the Vampire David. She learns that she had been the subject of the scientist Dr. Jacob Lane and the Vampire and Lycan species have been practically eradicated from Earth. But Selene is still connected to Michael and has visions that she believes that belongs to Michael's sight. However she has a surprise and finds that she has a powerful daughter named Eve that has been raised in the laboratory. Now Selene and David have to protect Eve against the Lycans that intend to use her to inoculate their species against silver. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

[first lines]
Selene: The Vampire and Lycans clan have been at war for centuries before I was born, their endless conflict hidden from the human world. I was turned by a Vampire. And given the strength to avenge my family against the Lycans. And I was good at it. Then I found Michael Corvin, a human that was neither turned by Vampire nor Lycan, but a hybrid of the two. And everything changed. Allies turned enemies, and Vampire elders I had protected for now six centuries now wanted me dead. We ...

Kate continues her fight against the Lycans
3 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

O.k....I liked it. Not a part of the original trilogy, but a beginning of a new one with the same old problem...Lycans. I was wondering how long Kate can continue to go forward and try to look the same age as she was during the first film. Christopher Lee use to joke about how difficult it was to make him appear the same age as Dracula in the 1950-70s Hammer Dracula series. She still looks ready to go here, and in this film, she is thrown around a bit more than before. I though the film recaptured the Gothic look of the original trilogy and the plot was easy to follow (although in action/horror genre does it really matter ?). I watched this on DVD and I will say the only problem I found was the directors commentary...which was dull.
