When watching the footage of the security camera on the security monitors in the 3D version, the Time and Date stamping on the footage is in 3D. If it were in real life this would all appear as a flat 2D image on the screen. See more »
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 ...

Again the eternal fight between vampires and werewolves in this exciting but inferior follow-up
Passable sequel that concerns again the eternal taking on between vampires and Lycans . This creepy and gore-soaked vampires film begins ten years after . Unknown to humanity, centuries old blood feud raged between aristocrat vampires and subdued legion of werewolves known as Lycans . The tale traces the confrontation between a ruling class of bloodsuckers and their onetime slaves, the werewolves . When human forces discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans , a war to eradicate both species commences. The vampire warrioress Selene leads the battle against humankind . As a vampire named Selena (Kate Beckinsale) emerges as a powerful rebel who rallies the rebellious bloodsuckers (Theo James) to rise up against Doctor Jacob Lane (Stephen Rea) . She also discovers that she has a 12-year-old Vampire/Lycan hybrid daughter (India Eisley's character is referred to throughout the movie as "Subject 2" but credited as "Eve") . Selene is joined by Detective Sebastian (Michael Ealy) , in his struggle against the Lycans and his fight for freedom . Neverheless , the war was not as it had seemed . Soon the hunt would be on for his killer . As the war between vampires and werewolves get more personal and deadly , they decide to launch a full-scale attack on the hideout in order to extinguish the race.
This amazing movie packs frantic action , thrills ride , stirring fighting , graphic violence , excessive body count: 128 and is pretty entertaining . The film's release date is on the same day as Underworld: Evolution's, released six years earlier. The picture continues the characteristic of the series that the major supporting parts are played by well-known actors from the UK, in this case Charles Dance and Stephen Rea . Furthermore , there appears uncredited Wes Bentley . And is the first Underworld film not to feature Bill Nighy, Michael Sheen or Brian Steele . It packs large loads of guts and gore , there's a huge body count, this one actually knocks off an immense amount , several vampires and werewolves are staked bloodily in the chest, even more impaled with large claws. There's really savage decapitation, plenty of bodies ripped in scraps and half, including some of the most tears ever, that spill lots of blood and numerous get shot up with arcs . Most of vampires, Lycans and humans victims are relegated to being bitten in the throat and neck and the breathtaking fighting scenes are realized with magnificent special and visual effects as well as excellent make-up department . The film blends horror, suspense, struggles, rip-roaring action, terror and lots of blood and gore . Set design is of first class , settings are stylized, Gothic scenarios , and spooky and ghoulish atmosphere. Special effects are breathtaking , part of them are made by means of computer generator and part by make up . Bone-chilling and atmospheric musical score by Paul Haslinger and colorful and dark cinematography by Scott Kevan ; being the first film in the series to be in real-d 3-d and Imax 3-d . Spectacular and moving direction by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein , though Jalmari Helander was offered a chance to direct. The interesting but mediocre screenplay was written by Len Wiseman , Kate Beckinsale's husband , who directed the former entries , along with Danny McBride and Kevin Grevioux . All actors and technicians participated in the previous outings , including , of course , Kate Beckinsale as a relentless action woman , being well replaced by Rhona Mitra in former entry titled ¨Rise the Lycans¨. Recommended to those who amuse those kind of vampires-werewolves films or those enjoy in general.
