Underworld : Rise Of The Lycans

Friday, February 6, 2009

i went to the cinema last week to watch this movie..Honestly, I did not know it's a prequel of underworld, I seriously thought it's a sequel movie..I saw a review about this movie but I plan not to read it since I do not really like to know the idea of the movie before I watch it for myself..Therefore, for the whole 1++ hour I was actually kinda confused..I know that there's no Kate Beckinsale in the movie but I thought it's because they want to make something different so they stop the character for a while which was completely a wrong idea..haha..silly me! Despite all of my confusion, I was enjoying the movie till the end of it where Kate's (Selene) scene from Underworld came out and that time I realized it's a prequel..haha..but i knew about Viktor's daughter who died because of the sunlight during the flashback of how the vampire-lycans war started in the Underworld movie but then it was actually kinda different from the one showed in this prequel movie..so I'm not sure myself whether this is a prequel or a sequel..haha..but it was a lie if I said I completely do not think it's a prequel since Lucian is alive and is very powerful in this movie..so I guess I was in between..haha..Basically,the prequel story traces the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, a young Lycan named Lucian emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor, the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja, in his battle against the Vampire army and his struggle for Lycan freedom..I do not really like Rhona Mitra in this movie because sometimes she looked so beautiful and looks perfect to be Sonja but sometimes she looked like a she-male..No offense Rhona,maybe that's because of the lighting effect or whatever..the funny thing is Sonja's eye color keeps changing between brown and blue(contact lens)..Overall, I would give this movie 7/10 because I have always love vampires and werewolves movies..Love the actions and the effects..
