Kinda adored these films… #UnderworldBloodWars
Out of all the (somewhere over 500) DVD’s on my shelves the Underworld movies are regularly returned to and passed around. So I have no problem re-watching them all before the new one comes out. I just have one little nit to pick: If all of them are basically the Vampires and Werewolves fighting, isn’t it just one long war? As it’s been a while since the last one was released (2012) I thought we’d have a quick recap.
How the Story goes
Alexander Corvinus was the last survivor of a plague that wiped out his entire village, his body mutated the virus and gave him immortality. Then he had a couple of rug rats, one got bit by a bat the other by a wolf and voila! Vampires and Lycans. His third son didn’t gain the immortality the others did from their father. He had to live a normal human life, grow old and die, whilst his father and siblings lived on. But in his genetic code he had hidden the original virus. Which he passed on through his line.
And this, believe it or not, is why the Lycans are after Michael Corvin.
As Lycans killed her family (or so she believes, we know better, we’ve watched the other films) Selene is bent on destroying all Lycans. And she realises they’re after Corvin for something shady; so she decides to capture him for herself. You know, to get info out of. Anyway, she also discovers a plot and a lie.
Stashing Corvin in a safe house, because now she wants/needs to keep him alive, she goes to raise the last vampire elder (Markus) – a smidge earlier than she’s meant to. But he’s already awake and wants to steel her memories so he can see what she’s seen and gather information. Selene and Corvin go on the run and discover that Markus is the first vampire and he wants to free his Lycan brother.
Underworld: Rise of the Lycans
Then we learn that the werewolves originally couldn’t move back into human form once bitten and were used as the guardians and slaves by the vampires. But after the birth of a human child from a wolf mother the virus once again mutated. Giving werewolves the ability to transform at will.
The war continues when the humans become aware of the vampires and Lycans and try to eradicate them. Selene, having been imprisoned, breaks free and escapes, discovering she had a child whilst she was imprisoned that was taken from her and still lives. The pair can see through each others eyes and can use it to find each other.
