Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is a phenomenal thriller. This movie takes you back hundreds of years before the other two ‘Underworld’ movies, and shows you how everything began. Yes… that means this is a prequel; something a lot of people don’t find to be very attractive. Despite this fact, this is definitely a must see for all of the vampire and werewolf fans out there.

Seeing as how this is a prequel, you are going to run into a few rough spots along the way. You’ll already know who will be surviving before the movie even begins, which takes away from the movie in some ways. Due to the fact, though, you will also be able to fill in any questions you had about the other two movies. That is what a prequel is meant for anyway, isn’t it?

Rise of the Lycans features amazing visuals and very realistic special effects. The actors are astounding and really define the characters’ personalities. Everything is so fluent you can hardly tell what you are watching isn’t actually real. The blood and gore turns this film into a magical blood bath of astounding illustration.
The movie had a great plot and it really held true to the expectations of the previous Underworld movies. If you didn’t know, you would not be able to tell that this was directed by a different person than the others. The storyline is finely tuned and you will always know what is going on, and enjoying every single second of it.

Overall, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is a great film. I wouldn’t recommend it for children though, as it gets extremely graphic with the blood and gore. Although don’t let the blood and gore deter you from watching this movie, it really adds to the movie and is truly amazing how real it all seems. I am going to have to give this movie a 4.5 out of 5; it truly deserves it.
