Synopsis: Picking up directly from the previous film, vampire warrior Selena and the half werewolf Michael hunt for clues to reveal the history of their races and the war between them.

Reaction: An interesting development in the story. A couple of predictable points, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • This is the only film in the [Underworld] series so far that the music wasn't composed by Paul Haslinger, who did the score for Underworld. He was replaced by Marco Beltrami, who Director Len Wiseman wanted because he was impressed with his score on I, Robot. Paul was brought back for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.
  • Zita Görög, who plays Amelia, had to have her lines dubbed over because the microphones didn't pick up her voice.
  • The name Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman) was originally the intended name for the main character in The Crow: City of Angels, which was changed to the name Ashe Corven.
  • Actress Kate Beckinsale wanted to use movies like Aliens and The Terminator as the basis for her role as an action heroine, but when they first talked about the movie, director/husband Len Wiseman suggested that she check out Russell Crowe in L.A. Confidential instead.
  • While filming a scene where Selene and Michael look at each other longingly, director Len Wiseman surprised the cast and crew by playing [?] Bryan Adams' song {Everything I Do (I Do It For You)}, at which everyone started laughing.
  • Kate Beckinsale's chair had, instead of her name, "My Sweetie" on it surrounded by tiny hearts.
  • According to actor Tony Curran himself, he stipulated in his contract that he wanted to be able to keep his Vampire fangs in at all times, even when he wasn't filming.
  • The little girl that plays young Selene is Lily Mo Sheen, the daughter of Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen.
  • Tony Curran who portrays the first Vampire Marcus, portrayed a pure blooded Vampire named Priest in the film Blade 2.
