   This prequel to Len Wiseman’s UnderworldandUnderworld: 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 … see full wiki

not as good as the rest of the underworld movies, but still worth the watch. you get the background of the lycans and the vampire royality. it makes the whole story come togeather really nicely.

Rhona Mitra as Sonja
      First off, let me just say that I am a fan of the "Underworld" franchise and I do think that Kate Beckinsale is one of the most beautiful women on the planet. Plus, I am also a sucker for tales about vampires and werewolves.

Well I haven't seen the other two Underworld movies, but thought that with this being a prequel it would probably be better that I start with this anyway.
