(at around 41 mins) The ancient tome which Selene uses to research the history of Kraven features pages from three different sources, all shown before "The Fall of Lucian." The first, featured on the page with the seals of Amelia, Viktor, and Marcus, is an ancient Hungarian text entitled Funeral Sermon and Prayer.

The third is a book entitled Instructissima Bibliotheca Manualis Concionatoria, which is also featured between pages of the story of the fall of Lucian. See more »
(at around 38 mins) The shooting gallery scene: in close-ups of the statue targets, bullets are slamming into them at a high rate, as if from a machine gun. When the shot changes to show Selene, she is actually seen to be using a semi-automatic pistol, and firing at a much slower rate. See more »

I recently rented it because the video store didn't have anything better to offer, that I had not already seen, and I must say that I was very much surprised. It was far better than expected. I especially liked the acting of Bill Nighy as the vampire lord Viktor, and Micheal Sheen as the werewolf leader Lucian. I think that the plot is quite strong, and it does not ruin the vampire or werewolf legend. What i didn't like as much was the werewolf costumes. I didn't find the convincing. But apart from that, it was very entertaining, and I am looking forward to see the sequel i the theaters.
