Alternate Versions

Original workprint of the film had much longer and more graphic sex scene between Michael and Selene, which included more nudity from Kate Beckinsale. Blink-and-you-miss- it shot of her butt and other extra shots from the original scene are still in the film and can be seen during part when Marcus drinks Selene's blood if the scene is slowed down.

OK sequel
19 June 2006 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

OK sequel to UNDERWORLD will appeal to its core audience and few others. Too many flashbacks to the first movie do little to explain what is going on in the sequel -- that is, to the uninitiated and people like myself who hasn't seen the original in awhile. The plot is thin, although the action is fast and furious as vampire/warrior Kate Beckinsale is again on the track of those who threaten to destroy the world. Good-looking nonactor Scott Speedman is back as her love interest, himself a combination of vampire and werewolf who is virtually indestructible. And knowing this takes away some of the fun toward the end when the big fight is on and the chips are really down. But enough said about that. Beckinsale looks great in skin-tight black leather, and has a quasi-nude love scene with Speedman. The gore quotient is fully realized, thankfully. The monsters are great-looking, and the atmospheric photography and sets are first rate. Nevertheless, recommended only for fans of the first.
