Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

I have to give the producers credit, at least it took them two previous films before they decided to try the eventual milking of this vampire/werewolf war franchise. This chapter has little to do with the other installments except serve as a prequel to the first Underworld and deal with the origins of the Vampire's war against the Lycans (which is pretty self explanatory... they decide to get in a war). Yes there is a love plot going on but that gets moved around for some Spartacus style action where Bill Nighy and Michael Sheen really look like they are trying but alas to no avail, they are forced to ham it up in this oddly blue tinted film about special effects and stupid longings for forbidden love (this kind of sounds like another shitty vampire movie...).
