The cast did a good job in this movie. This movie is really scary, and a awesome action movie.
In some movies, the characters and plot are so far removed from our real life experiences, that the movie fails to make the human connection. Take Little Miss Sunshine for instance. Sure, it won plenty of awards from snobby critics, but who was that movie actually made for? How many of us actually go to beauty pageants, or drive vehicles, or have grandfathers? It was a movie made by the Hollywood elite, for the Hollywood elite.

And that's why Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is a breath of fresh air. It's not about Hollywood fat cats, riding their VW buses across the country like millionaires. Watching Rise of the Lycans is like looking through a magical porthole into my own childhood.

My Dad used to be a vampire. He would stumble back home before dawn, with the powerful stench of human blood on his breath. Human blood smells awful; like a combination of whiskey and beer. He would sleep all day, and would complain whenever Mom turned on a light or opened the curtains.

One time I asked Mom if Dad didn't like the sunlight because it would turn him into ashes. She just started laughing, but then it turned into crying.

At night, Dad would rise from bed, and go into town looking for blood.

One night Dad was attacked by our next door neighbor's pet Lycan. It was a big, mean beast. They kept it chained up in the yard. Dad was coming home from such a big night of feasting on blood, that he thought our neighbor's house was his house. When his key didn't work on the front door, he had assumed that Mom had changed the locks again.

So Dad went around back to where he thought Mom's bedroom was, and threw a brick through the window, and started yelling. The noise woke up the sleeping Lycan, who bit Dad on the leg.

The police came. The Judge made Dad stop being a vampire after that.

Wow! This is what we are talking about! Classy production, in the spirit of the series. Nice storyline, kool wolfs. Enjoyed it 100%. Don't miss it!
To be honest this addition to the Underworld series has made me enjoy the idea of the first two, and want to watch them again. I was surprised with it to be honest, and waited patiently for them to stuff the storyline up. Not bad at all. Though, I have trouble taking Bill Nighy seriously, but that's because I love him in comedy movies.
I have to say this movie as far as story left a lot to be desired however the cinematography was beautiful and the choreography has merits. Without giving too much away I will say that the CG is well done in this one again and the really there was nothing you either didn't know or couldn't pick up from the first two.
