This movie continues the saga of war between the vampires and the lycans. This movie goes back to the beginnings of the ancient feud between the two tribes as Selene, the beautiful vampire heroine, and Michael, the lycan hybrid, try to unlock the secrets of their bloodlines. This will be a modern tale of action, intrigue, and forbidden love, which takes them into the battle to end all wars as the immortals must finally face their retribution.Written by
The love scene between Michael and Selene ran longer, and was shot with full nudity from both performers on-set. Kate Beckinsale then requested not to feature any shot that showed her fully nude. This is why there are lots of fades in and out. See more »
(at around 23 mins) I am not sure if that image says 60 or 68 degrees, but it does say Lat so,...Lat. 68.21, Long. 32.12 is in the Murmansk Oblast of Russia North of the Arctic Circle and East of Finland...Lat 60.21, Long. 32.12 is near Leningrad, which is close to St Petersburg and the Gulf of Finland.

Original workprint of the film had much longer and more graphic sex scene between Michael and Selene, which included more nudity from Kate Beckinsale. Blink-and-you-miss- it shot of her butt and other extra shots from the original scene are still in the film and can be seen during part when Marcus drinks Selene's blood if the scene is slowed down.

Just got back from watching it tonight, let me tell you, the first big surprise was how how many people turned out for it, for a Thursday night the place was packed as if Harry Potter had just come out, it's been a while since my local theatre was like that.
Now to the movie itself. I liked the first one but this one was an improvement. Mostly because of Scott Speedman's character Michael. The last movie only gave us a glimpse into what he has become, and here we get to see him kick butt alongside Selene as what is pretty much an equal. Watching him fight and take-down werewolves was great.
The action scenes were bigger, with great direction and camera-work. the special effects are also great, especially the scene with their winged-nemesis pursuing their truck. Make-up is amazingly well done. It was refreshing to see that the werewolves were still practical make-up creations rather than CG.
There was also the added bonus of sex scenes. one where a guy is having fun with a couple chick vampires, and one between the two leads. we get to see most of Beckinsale's lovely figure (MILF is an understatement) but no direct frontal shots. ladies will enjoy much shirtless Speedman action.
The opening segment makes it worth a look, i definitely recommend it to anyone who liked the first or thought it had promise.
