Xposted this to my journal...thought i'd share it here too...

Ok don't click if you don't want to be spoiled...



Underworld 2 AKA lets just show flashbacks of Underworld 1 and occasionaly show the new story that is so full of plot holes that we just want to distract you with Viktor's death scene 500 times!

*sighs* I wanted to like the movie and I did like parts of it...mostly the Selene/Michael scenes, but there was just so much that happened that didn't sit right with me...most notebly the timeline is way fucked up and I think Len forgot his own timeline...

I just wanna know how Selene had the pendent centuries after Sonja died and Lucian took it? That was just confusing and I think they just changed it and made her centuries older than she was in the first movie which is just confusing...*sighs* way to rape canon there Len...I swear almost nothing lined up with the first movie that happend just mere hours before hand...

and my friend and i laughed after the whole Marcus/Viktor scene when they showed Selene and it was all flashbacks of the first movie and summed it up pretty much in like 5minutes...I turned to my friend and was like all that's missing is Selene's voice over "Last Time on Underworld"

i was gonna kill someone if Michael had died...that totally pissed me off...and that boy has died and come back to life more times than he should...and so what now Selene is some uber hybrid herself? Len just turned his main character into a Mary Sue...

what happened to the amazing story and rich characters of the first movie? This one is just blood and gore and rape of canon...still it had it's moments and I did like some of it...i would probably give it 2 1/2 stars out of 4...where the first movie was a 3 1/2 maybe more...

Dunno if i'll go back and see it like i did with the first movie...we'll see...



for those that don't want spoilers i'll give you the long and short...grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr that is all...

Also the theater was packed which surprised me...like there wasn't a seat free except for the front two rows...didn't know Underworld was so popular especially at 10pm

I dont want to be attacked if Im wrong but the only thing I didnt agree with in the rant was the 'I just wanna know how Selene had the pendent centuries after Sonja died and Lucian took it?'

They never said when Sonja died (and Lucian took the locket) so it could have been sometime between the two hundred years when William was captured and locked up (and selene had the pendant) and the the 'supposed' time six hundred years before the movies that Lucian died.

I hope that makes sence. And Im wrong Im sorry just what I got.

could've just been in the book...and not the movie...but in one or both of those places Lucian watched sonja die and then turned into a werewolf and broke free of his chains and snatched the pendent before Viktor could and escaped and wore the pendent ever since as a memory of his lost love...

... indeed, I understood little Selene to be playing with the pendent years before Sonja (Sonya?) died, not after.

Personally, I loved the extra meaning of the pendent in this chapter.

Re: ...

my point was that Selene wasn't alive back in Sonja and Lucian's day they made that clear in the first movie or at least the book....my friend had a whole timeline made out based on the movies and Selene's parents weren't even thought of, heck her great great great grandparents weren't even though of back then...Sonja died in the middle ages...Selene supposedly died 1700s at earliest...so that's why i ask how Selene had the Pendent after Sonja had died? Len screwed up his own timeline...

Re: ...

Pardon, I don't recall the first film saying that Selene died in the 1700s ... ?

Where did your friend's timeline come from?

I totally agree with everything you just said. I loved the first movie, and the second was just...bad. I might have missed something, but was there even a S/L flashback that wasn't a part of the first movie? I have to admit one thing though: That device with the gas and electricity bomb? Awesome.
