Product Description

SELENE, A BEAUTIFUL VAMPIRE WARRIOR, IS ENTRENCHED IN A WAR BETWEEN THE VAMPIRE & WEREWOLF RACES. ALTHOUGH SHE IS ALIGNED WITH THE VAMPIRES, SHE FALLS IN LOVE WITH MICHAEL, A WEREWOLF WHO LONGS FOR THE WAR TO END.

Additional Features

If you enjoyed the stylish and moody atmosphere of Underworld's theatrical version and didn't mind the pacing, then you should be able to replace your original DVD with the extended and unrated cut. The 12 minutes of new footage includes a sexy subplot involving vampire Erika (Sophia Myles, who also figures into some of the recut footage), back stories on Scott Speedman's Michael character and the Lycans, and a new battle scene toward the end. And although this cut is unrated, don't expect to see more graphic violence or Kate Beckinsale out of her leather outfit. More than once director Len Wiseman offers the disclaimer that this is an extended cut rather than a director's cut because he felt some scenes needed to be cut for pacing reasons (and admits "a lot of stuff you're not gonna notice"). But he also loves some of the scenes that have been restored. His commentary with Beckinsale and Speedman (he leaves after the first half) may be a little less technically informative than the two commentaries on the original DVD, but it's useful for Wiseman's notes on the new footage, and it's just fun to listen to. Beginning with Beckinsale's zinger in the opening scene, the group has a good time. Other than those commentaries, the features of the original disc are included here. New additions are three featurettes, humorous outtakes, and "Fang vs. Fiction," a 47-minute documentary about werewolves and vampires. There's also a DVD-case-sized comic book adaptation of the movie by writer Kris Oprisko and artists Nick Postic and Nick Marinovich, the creative team behind the comic book miniseries that served as a prequel to Underworld. One can debate the wisdom of releasing an extended-cut DVD only months after the theatrical release, but this package does have a lot to offer. --David Horiuchi

Customer Reviews

The concept of vampires and werewolves fighting each other with guns is pointless.
Kyle McMahon
This movie can stand by itself, don't get me wrong, but it never says what happens to a few key characters at the end.
Aeryn Campbell
Throw in some intrigue, some betrayal, good special effects and great action, and you have a really great movie.

Boiled down to the fine little dish of steak tar-tar that it is, "Underworld" is the answer to the two horror flick questions you had as a kid:

1) If Dracula and the Wolfman went mano a mano and fang-to-claw, which one would do the thrashing?

2) If Dracula and the Wolfman checked into a cheap motel, got roaring drunk on a case of Night Train, and had a baby, what would it look like?

You get the answer to #1 early and often, which is pretty much what this Transylvania Station is all about. And by the end of "Underworld" you get #2 as well---and trust me, when it's hopping about like an ugly green Mini-Hulk (right down to its one-size-fits-all-monster trunks) you'll wish you hadn't.

You want to know what you're getting when you lace up your thigh-high attitude boots and strap on that trenchcoat for a little midnight fun in Len Wiseman's uber-stylish little monster mash "Underworld"?

Think West Side Story: only here, instead of the Jets and the Sharks angling for a rumble on the other side of the tracks, we have Vampires and Werewolves. Oh, and in "Underworld" nobody breaks into song. Both sides just want to rumble, and the girls just wanna have fun. In the meantime, while not the sharpest stake in the vamp-hunter kitbag, "Underworld" finds its groove, and serves up a bloody two hours of unabashed techno-cool that drinks you dry, trashes the apartment and howls at the moon.

We get dropped into the middle of a war that Celine (the impossibly tasty Kate Beckinsdale)---our supple full-body-suit clad vampiric Death Dealer and narrator---tells us has been "raging for centuries."

On one side of the tracks: the sneering, brutally hip Euro-trashy leather-trenchcoat & hip-sunglasses wearing uber-high-maintenance Vampires.

Blade was interesting, but to me it failed emotionally. You just do not connect with the film on the personal level. The effects were super, but that was the main impact..."wow what amazing effects". You feel like breaking out in a chorus of Peggy Lee's Is That All There Is. Special effects alone cannot make a movie great.

Underworld makes that jump, great FX work, but also gives you characters you really care about, ones that you really love to hate. A strong plot line designed to hook you and keep you, just does that. With the emotional involvement, there is a greater impact, a movie that will demand repeat viewing. Instant Cult Status.

The movie grabs you from the opening and never lets up with the pace. Firm direction and with a driving score, the movie reaches for perfection. You have a 1000-year-old war between Lycons and Vampires, and it's all coming to a head. It's a well thought out and executed premise and Kate Beckinsale shines! She is an amazing talent. I first adored her work in Cold Comfort Farm as Robert Post's child Flora. When you compare that gentle, deft bit of humour with this kick a*** vampire hunter, it proves what an overlooked talent she is. With Van Helsing out now (and I am sure this movie led to her landing the role), she is finally getting a spotlight she so well deserves.

A gloomy, atmospheric ambiance to the whole movie is maintained all the way through, adding a strong foundation for the otherworld premise. I am sure some will nitpick things, as all vampire film faces, but kudos for the vibrant energy and sheer edgy feel to the film.

It leaves you hanging, clearly open for a sequel...one can but hope it maintains this high quality.

Kate rocks...you don't need to know anymore! It has about 13 minutes of footage not in the original. A great battle scene and some backstory on Michael. Rounds out the film nicely without dragging it down. A great pounding soundtrack, too!

I had been looking forward to the release of this movie all summer long, and it was a great movie! It was just a little different from what I had thought it would be.
The movie, as most of you probably know, is about a war that has been going on between werewolves and vampires. And it is THIS that is the primary focus of the plot (as opposed to the vampires and werewolves themselves). The werewolves have been researching their bloodlines and discovered a human who shares a common ancestor with both the werewolves and the vampires. The werewolves seek out this human, and this is noted by Selene (Kate Beckinsale), who decides to make it her mission to discover the importance of this particular human.
Unfortunately, the writers decided not to delve too deeply into vampire and werewolf lore. I was pretty disappointed by the fact that the supernatural abilities of these supernatural beings were not really emphasized. Instead, the writers chose to merely stick guns in the hands of the vampires and werewolves. In addition, the mythology was slightly different from what I've read and seen before in previous vampire and werewolf books and movies. I don't necessarily have a problem with that, but if you are going to change things from what people are used to, then it should be explained in slightly more detail.
Another thing that was a little disappointing were the effects. The previews led me to believe that the movie would be comparable to the "Matrix" in that department. Unfortunately, the best effects (with the one exception of the werewolf transformations) were all shown in the previews.
All of this aside, the movie was still pretty incredible.

Why no Blu-Ray for the extended edition?
Well....I don't claim to be an expert at their reasoning for not releasing the extended cut on bluray, however, I would say.....it all comes down to making money/marketing.....they will wait until they finish the entire series of movies then release another super package set which will just ... Read More
