I need to hurry and see it, damnit!  I've been tempted to grab the book each time I see it at the bookstore but know that I should probably see the movie first- so that I won't be disappointed- since IMO, movies are never as good as the books are!

I am a big fan of the series.  Having seen the first and then second evolution.   In the Underworld series.   Of course ran to see the third here.  The rise of lycans.

For me it was good,  it stayed true to the first two movies.  But that was the problem.  I knew every thing that would happen. It was like watching a movie for the umpteen time.  Yet it was my first time.  And with the no real special effects that are best suited for the large screen.  I would strongly recommend going to an early bird showing.  Or waiting for dvd. 

Back to knowing the movie.  It was like I knew who would die and who would not.  It was like with Anniken.  We all knew he was going to turn to the dark side.  We all knew he get messed up.

I saw it!!! I LOVE IT! Even if it was expected, there is a prospect of so many more sequels! The ending of the last movie already gives you a prelude to what the next movie will pertain to. They could go on with this for a while. The reigns of Markus and Amelia maybe? <--this is not a spoiler.  *Smirks.*

I thought the movies were okay (didn't see ROTL) but I feel like they're overrated. Maybe I just wasn't paying close enough attention but vampires and werewolves just feel so cliched and overdone, I don't understand why the whole theme behind them is still so popular.

Because some people -like- werewolves and vampires?

Well lots of other things contain them and aren't as popular...

They were all right but I know they could have been a lot better. My friend certainly likes them a lot, and it's only because of him that I saw them, but I wouldn't have bought the DVDs myself. The way the story went in the first two, it just doesn't seem like it would make much sense to make the third one a prequel, I guess is what I'm saying. But a lot of people like it; I'm just wondering how much action there is in it compared to the other two. Without being in modern times I doubt they'd have all that fun stuff to kill people with. :P

Saw it, loved, need to get the boxed set (You KNOW it'll come out in one, come on...)

Lycans always were my favourite out of the bunch.  And I liked Lucian from the first film.

I went and saw it on V-day with my mom. It was good, they definitely had a good actress playing Sonja.

The only thing that I need to figure out on the movie's time line is where some of the major events fall, cause all the movies seem to have consistency issues.

It takes place near Russia, and I'd assume (Despite the two handed weaponry and stylized armour) that it would take place in the Dark Ages.  Like the 10th century.

Take it like a Superhero Historical Fantasy, where things don't always make sense, but are there for the 'rule of cool'.

I was actually talking about stuff specific to the Underworld world. Like when William was finally locked up? and how soon after that did the elder start the leapfrog thing? and how long after William's imprisonment did Sonja commit her 'betrayal' of the coven? and how long were the elders gone after Lucian's uprising? stuff like that

I didn't see the second one but I think I might go see this.  And I do enjoy vampires and werewolves..especially when they are tearing each other up.  Like those old Universal Studio moveies like House of Frankenstein/Dracula or Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman..love them!

For anyone interested in Vampires and Werewolves there is always the "Twilight" series which I read and thought for being written in 2005 it took a long time to get recognized, but the world started making it where people wanted to see if because it was pop culture, not for the story itself, because it was "cool." There is another series written by Patricia Briggs about the same time dealing with the same types of character called "Preying for Mercy." The great thing about this series is not only does it deal with the same type of character i.e. vampire, werewolves it was written at the same time Twilight was being written. Plus, Patricia Briggs has written more novels and has more experience.

I saw the late showing last night. It was good that they are going back and filling in the blanks. No real pot suprises, if you've seen the first two you know how it ends, but the journey to get there was still good.

The Mercy books are AMAZING!!!!! I love Mercy, Love Adam and Samuel. I love her take on werewolves and the other creepy crawlies, her characters are awesome and fleshed out well.

THe Twilight books are good too but not enough wolf to suit me.. I love the wolves..
