    I am going to rent Underworld and watch it first before I check it out at the theater, but I definitely want to see it.

    I saw the first one and thought it was pretty terrible. It was ok as a mindless film to watch though. Maybe the sequel is better? Either way, it's one that I'll end up renting instead of seeing at the cinema.

    You could read the book that the story was stolen from too.

    Well, judging by the commercials, the creators of "Underworld: Evolution" have essentially ripped off the plot to Blade 2 and transplanted it into their own shitty franchise that inexplicably got a sequel. Well done fellows.

    The first one may have been a decent movie if they had tried to give Michael(I think that was his name) any character development at all. He was basically a nothing character in that movie. He was just there. The commercials made it seem like it was going to be a Romeo and Juliette type story with Vampires and Werewolves. The movie hinted at a possibilty of something like that, but it never went anywhere. Still, I may go see the sequel. It should at least be entertaining as an action flick.

    Well then the first Underworld ripped it off then, as Blade 2 predates it.

    Except that it's absolutely nothing at all like Blade 2. I've seen both. Two completely different ideas.

    First one dissapointed me, badly. I expected to see some werewolves kicking ass. Instead I got werecats being beat up on.

    Then, they tried to weave in some love story, or something.

    Well having never seen the first one, I can only take your word for that. However, the plot for the second one, based on the commercials, seems to tell the story of evolved super-vampires that threaten both sides of the "underworld" universe, leading to a combined effort to battle them. Blade 2 tells the story of Blade teaming up with the vampires to tackle an evolved race of super-vampires that threaten both sides of the Blade universe.

    Obviously once this sequel shows up on the movie network, I'll know for certain.

    I've had enough of the vampire/goth movies. I'll wait until it hits TNT on tv.

    I really liked the first one, and I'm excited to see the sequel. I think that you are making over generalizations about the plot Random Autobot. By your reasoning, every movie is a rip off of almost every other movie because they have bad guys and good guys. The only thing that disappointed me about the first movie was that we didn't get to see many werewolves, but I feel that they gave a pretty good reason for it. I think we'll see more of them in the new movie.

    Thought the second one wasn't out until Friday... hmmm.

    I really liked the first one, I felt that the storyline totally outshone any action, and that the parallels to the relationships were an interesting piece of work. Not a lot of people realize all the quirks to the story, but there are many. I really hope that the second one does the first justice by expanding even more on that storyline and producing even more interesting tidbits.
