The Underworld series is back again for a third movie. I believe it is inappropriate to dub this as 'Underworld 3' since the movie's actually a prequel, retelling how the war started between the vampires and Lycans (werewolves). Meaning, it recounts Sonja and Lucian's love story as well. But fret not sappy-movie haters, I am quite sure the movie won't involve excessive romantic crap. In fact the movie's hardly romantic.
"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 (Sheen) emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja (Mitra), in his battle against the Death Dealer army and his struggle for Lycan freedom. "
