The prequel story traces the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires known as Death Dealers and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, a young Lycan named Lucian (Michael Sheen) emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Bill Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja (Rhona Mitra), in his battle against the Death Dealer army and his struggle for Lycan freedom.

I was very happy with the service I received from the dealer, and I would be very happy to buy from him again. I originally made an error in my order, but it was corrected quickly, and the dealer treated me with kindness and respect.
Lucian (Michael Sheen) was the first of the Lycans -- rational lycanthropes capable of taking human form. Born from a savage werewolf, he was made into the personal slave/protege of the vampire lord Viktor (Bill Nighy). But things began to go wrong when two things happened: Viktor began breeding a new race of Lycans by infecting humans with Lucian's curse, and Lucian fell in love with Viktor's lovely daughter Sonja (Rhona Mitra). The Lycans are treated like beasts of burden by the vampires, and rebellion is starting to stir among them -- and especially in Lucian, who sees them as his people now.
But when Lucian is savagely punished for removing his slave collar (so he could save Sonja from werewolves), he decides enough is enough -- he and a small band of Lycans break out of the fortress and escape into neighboring lands. But he's determined to return for Sonja, whose affair with Lucian has been discovered by a horrified, grief-stricken Viktor -- and as the armed, organized Lycans clash with their former masters, someone will lose everything.
"Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" is sort of a werewolf "Ten Commandments" crossed with a bit of goth "Romeo and Juliet" -- basically it's about a rather straightforward slave uprising, and a forbidden love that obviously isn't gonna end well.Read more ›

This is one of the many in this great series of dark movies. If you like this plot then try all the others because they are well produced and entertaining.Published 19 months ago by John Turcotte
This was an amazing movie and I would recommend this and the ones previous. They just keep getting better. I can't wait for the next one to come out on DVD.Published on April 2 2012 by Mich
Though the movie does fill in some of the "history" from the previous movies, there was far too much emphasis placed on effects rather than the story itself. Read morePublished on Oct. 16 2009 by R. Stumbur
