Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

The third in the 'Underworld' series is a slick prequel that fleshes out the story of the ancient war between Vampires and their one-time slaves, the Lycans. The plot picks up with Viktor (Bill Nighy), sparing the life of the first Lycan he encounters, Lucien (Michael Sheen). As the years go on, the vampires take advantage of this new race, breeding them as their slaves and protectors. But as fate would have it, Viktor's daughter, Sonja (Rhona Mitra), falls in love with Lucien, leading to the Lycan revolt. Filmed here in New Zealand, several familiar faces pop up in the cast including Geraldine Brophy and Elizabeth Hawthorne.
