Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

It would be unfair of me to say this prequel in the series concerning the great war between the vampires and the werewolves sucks becuase it doesn't quite rate that bad. No, it would be more laong the lines of......oh...say history class. You remember high school? Of course you don't because you were too busy skipping class, smokin' pot and watching ghoulie films weren't you. Ok, history class, Sunday school, a wedding, work, any incident where you found yourself fighty to keep your head up and your eyes open, this is the problem with UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS. If we knew it was going to be this boring I'd say leave sleeping werewolves be. It's as if they were making a flick for the tween set or the emo heads or whathaveyou and you almost expect John Cusack to pop out at any second. I still like watching Bill Nighy's Viktor but even that gets tedious, I've never liked Michael Sheen in the role of Lucian and Rhona Mitra is bloody well wasted here. It's not like they brought her on board for Oscar level acting skills yet for the most part all we see of her is blurred action or washed out face shots. Perhaps if you did all three films in sequence it won't seem so bad but as it stands, save your money and wait for the DVD.
