Obviously this feud didn’t just begin out of nowhere. Lucian was in love with Viktor’s(the Vampire Lord) daughter Sonja. Lucian grew up admiring her and Sonja the same for him. At one time Lucian was working with the Vampires, but only because he did not want to leave Sonja. He was mainly kept alive to use his blood and create more lycans like him. All other lycans before his birth were just wolfs, cursed by the blood of William and never to be shown as human. Lucian was born a human baby and kept alive by Viktor and his obsession for power. Viktor’s goal was to enslave and use the Lycans as guards and protect the vampires from the savage wolves that attacked the castle during daylight. This explains the amount of hatred the Vampires and the Lycans have for one another. Not only did the Vampires purposely create and enslave Lycans, but something else occurs that creates a more intense hatred…. you’ll have to watch and see.
This was a very enjoyable movie for me and I think most who like this genre would enjoy this movie. I thought it would maybe not be as good as the other two films without the very hot Kate Beckinsale, but it definitely didn’t miss a beat. The plotline was very interesting and didn’t ever lose my interest. The acting was good, but a few of the minor characters could have been better casted or more developed. A few things I didn’t like was the length of the film. It felt short and was shorter than I thought it should be. They probably could have talked more about the origins of both the Lycans and the Vampires to make the movie a tad more interesting and a bit longer. Another thing I didn’t like was the lack of “hero” “kick ass” characters on both sides. You have Lucian, Sonja, and Viktor, but where’s another couple of courageous Vampires or Lycans. Those things aside, I believe it was worth the ten to go see….
Well check it out, and tell me what you think. Or let us here at Movieguys know why you DON’T want to go see it.
