Underworld

Blade meets The Crow and The Matrix in Underworld, a hybrid thriller that rewrites the rulebook on werewolves and vampires. It's a "cuisinart" movie (blend a lot of familiar ideas and hope something interesting happens) in which immortal vampire "death dealers" wage an ancient war against "Lycans" (werewolves), who've got centuries of revenge--and some rather ambitious genetic experiments--on their lycanthropic agenda. Given his preoccupation with gloomy architecture (mostly filmed in Budapest, Hungary), frenetic mayhem and gothic costuming, it's no surprise that first-time director Len Wiseman gained experience in TV commercials and the art departments of Godzilla, Men in Black, and Independence Day. His work is all surface, no substance, filled with derivative, grand-scale action as conflicted vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale, who later became engaged to Wiseman) struggles to rescue an ill-fated human (Scott Speedman) from Lycan transformation. It's great looking all the way, and a guaranteed treat for horror buffs, who will eagerly dissect its many strengths and weaknesses. --Jeff Shannon

 

Underworld: Evolution
Better action, a bit of sex, and gorier R-rated violence make Underworld: Evolution a reasonably satisfying sequel to 2003's surprise hit Underworld. Looking stunning as ever in her black leather battle gear, Kate Beckinsale is every goth guy's fantasy as Selene, the vampire "death dealer" who's now fighting to stop the release of the original "Lycan" werewolf, William (Brian Steele) from the prison that's held him for centuries. As we learn from the film's action-packed prologue, William and his brother Marcus (Tony Curran) began the bloodline of vampires and werewolves, and after witnessing centuries of warfare between them, their immortal father Corvinus (Derek Jacobi) now seeks Selene and the human vampire/lycan hybrid Michael (Scott Speedman) to put an end to the war perpetuated by Victor (Bill Nighy), the vampire warrior whose betrayal of Selene turns Underworld: Evolution into an epic tale of familial revenge. This ambitious attempt at Shakespearean horror is compromised by a script (by Danny McBride and returning director Len Wiseman, Beckinsale's real-life husband) that's more confusing than it needs to be, with too many characters and not enough storytelling detail to flesh them all out. Aspiring to greatness and falling well short of that goal, Underworld: Evolution succeeds instead as a full-throttle action/horror thriller, with enough swordplay, gunplay, and CGI monsters to justify the continuation of the Underworld franchise. If you're an established fan, this is a must-see movie; if not, well... at least it's better than Van Helsing! --Jeff Shannon

 

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

This prequel to Len Wiseman’s Underworld and Underworld: Evolution is distinctively different, especially minus the nimble vampire warrior star, Selene (Kate Beckinsale). Underworld: Rise of the Lycans takes its cues from the vampire/werewolf battles that occur in the other films, but director Patrick Tatopoulos focuses here on the young werewolf Lucian's (Michael Sheen) rise to leadership. Rise of the Lycans is set mostly within the walls of vampire lord Viktor’s (Bill Nighy) castle, so the film’s silver, black, and blue palette reflects a world happening under moonlight. From the outset, when Viktor brings Lucian, the first werewolf, into the world, this villainous bloodsucker’s daughter, Sonja (Rhona Mitra), is smitten with Lucian’s hairy appearance and instinctual intelligence. As years pass, Lucian grows tired of watching his race suffer slavery and imprisonment, and recruits a human named Raze (Kevin Grevioux) to assist rebellion. This archetypal plot is not so riveting, and what carries Underworld: Rise of the Lycans are the battle scenes between vampires and werewolves, which are excitingly fast-paced and brutal. The whole film adopts a medieval battlefield aesthetic that carries an otherwise clichéd story about illicit love and freedom fighting. Some characters, like the traitor vampire Tannis (Steven Mackintosh), also intrigues throughout, as one guesses who he will ally with. Underworld: Rise of the Lycans may not be the finest film in the werewolf and vampire archives independently, but its mixed monstrosity makes it unique and entertaining, especially on a big screen. --Trinie Dalton

5.0 out of 5 stars Includes Extended Cut for Underworld May 12, 2009
By GoodBoy
Format:Blu-ray
This trilogy set includes the Underworld: Extended Edition. Why make a seperate cut just for the box set (I don't think they did)? I think it's safe to say it is identical to the already released Underworld Unrated Extended edition that's out on bluray.

So if you already have the other titles, no need to buy a box set that's basically just packaging them all together.

But if you only saw one of the movies and liked it, you definately need to see the rest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad DVD Case Packaging May 17, 2009
Format:DVD
The 3 DVDs are stacked one on top of another and held by a single clip. I doubt it would have cost more than a cent or two to insert a plastic DVD separator page. The current packaging causes the DVDs to be easily scratched upon eachother during removal and replacement to the clip. The movies are great, but the packaging is cheaply done.

4.0 out of 5 stars underworld trilogy December 3, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
for anyone getting this be warned there is no divider for the three cd's. they are pretty much stacked ontop of the other one. the first underworld is the unrated extended edition which in my opinion is better then the version that is rated R. so other then the no divider thing its a good buy, though you would think they could afford to put a divider in the case to actualy protect the cd's.

5.0 out of 5 stars separate cases for blu ray discs February 20, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I read some reviews stating the discs would come stacked in a single case but i was glad to find out that this actually has separate cases for each blu ray disc and the anime bonus in an envelope. Kudos to the manufacturer for listening to the consumers:)

3.0 out of 5 stars Rise of the Lycans has more grains than a rice field March 18, 2011
By Alan
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'd be giving this 4 stars, if not for the third movie of the set - Rise of the Lycans.
I don't think I have ever seen so much grain in a movie. It was more than distracting. It was more than irritating. I have no words to describe it.
I fiddled with the color, contrast, brightness, filtering, etc on the TV & player for the better part of an hour whilst stopping the movie numerous times to replay earlier scenes to check the effectiveness of my new settings.
On the bright side, the new settings looked fantastic on some of my better looking movies. So, if nothing else, at least it forced me to tweak some things.
In the end, I made it bearable for those with really bad eyesight.
Ultimately, Rise of the Lycans pretty much looks like it was downloaded from the internet or something.
Rise of the Lycans, on it's own, gets 2 stars from me.

Both Underworld & Underworld Evolution look fine. No complaints there. I would give each of those 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars BE CAREFUL!!!!! April 3, 2009
By Adam G.
Format:DVD
My wife and I are both HUGE fans of the "Underworld" movies and were ecstatic to hear that "Rise of the Lycans" finally had a DVD release date. We were even happier to hear that the trilogy was being released in it's own offical Box Set.

HOWEVER....

When reading over the specifications for the box set, I noticed that the version of "Underworld" included is the R-rated version and not the UNRATED version, which is the version that I already have.

If you plan on buying this trilogy (being the purist that I am), I would recommend that, in the event you already have the UNRATED version of "Underworld", you just swap the movies over, one for the other, and get rid of the R-rated version in the triolgy box set.

In the event the version of "Underworld" contained in the box set is BOTH the UNRATED AND the R-rated (both versions in the package), you'll be fine.

Just wanted to make everyone aware of this before you purchase.

(I gave the box set 4 stars because all 3 movies are fantastic. I would have given this 5 stars if I knew for sure that the UNRATED version of "Underworld" was included in it.)

Makes No Sense To Buy This Trilogy When They're Making Part 4.
Sure... I will hold off until 2013 when Underworld 1-4 bundle release on Blu-ray... Because god forbid me to purchase Underworld 4 alone and watching the other 3 now is a sin...
