For the Underworld fans who have seen the first two, do not hesitate to see the third! I'm a big fan and this one is better than the first two. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole film, literally. Really suspenseful and the story intertwined very nicely with the first two films.

9/10, definitely a must see!

I just saw the trailer but I'm honestly not all that thrilled about a vampire/lycan-movie set in the past. For me the most entertaining part of such movies is always how they try to integrate it with the present :-)

Kate Beckinsale doesn't have a big role in it right? She's listed in it but I haven't seen her in any of the trailers. But anyways, if she's not the main focus it's no sale to me.

Outside of Kate Beckinsale in tight leather outfits, I didn't really care much for the other two Underworld movies.

I only saw the first one, as the second one seems to have vanished from the Earth. I liked the original a good deal, though.

Seeing as the first one is one of the worst films i've ever seen, I doubt the third one is a 9/10. Particularly when shoved out in the middle of Oscar season.

You must not watch many if that is one of the worst you have ever seen.

It's got a hot chick in a very tight leather outfit. Yeah, I'll be seeing it and will probably enjoy it.

I've got a collection of around 500 DVDs and i'm happy to say Underworld is nowhere near it. If I want to watch an average action movie with a terrible storyline and subpar action sequences, i'll watch Equilibrium rather than this perfume advert on steroids.

Considering the first two were shit i'll stay very far from this one.

Kate Beckinsale is in it, she appears in the last minute, basically linking the story together. I guess not everyone's a fan but i fucking loved it!

It doesn't have Kate Beckinsale in it so no.

Tight leather didn't exist in the middle ages. No deal.

I never really cared for the Underworld movies when they first came out, but I watched them again about two months ago, and I really got into them.  Len Wiseman actually has a LOT of lore built into this.  Mostly, though, Rise of the Lycans is being used to fill in plotholes from the previous two films and also work as a money-maker.  I'm perfectly fine with that, even though Wiseman isn't directing this time (I think Patrick Tatopaulos is, who did the special effects and makeup for the first two flicks).  Nonetheless, I'm interested in an origins story, and lucky me...I've got two free passes to the theatre from a couple of grateful customers at work.  =  D

Well, let me know what you think when you come back. =]

I don't like the Underworld series - I like Kate Beckinsale but thats about it. The second one was disastrous - luckily I won free tickets and didn't pay for it. Why would I want to see a prequel to a mediocre series anyway without the star?

Because you haven't seen it and it might not suck?

I saw it and thought it was awful. The only good Underworld movie is the first one. I can see this series ending up going direct to DVD and then forgotten.

No Kate, no see.
