Trivia:

Goofs:

Errors in geography:
(At 22:10) The coordinates shown for the "safe house" (Location 254, Long 32 12 23, Lat 60 21 44) link to a location in Iran (near to the Afghanistan border) while the movie takes place in Hungary (recognizable from signs as the one saying "Hazorzo kutya" when entering Tanis' hiding place).

My God. Brother, what have you done?



User Review

Better than the first.

Rating: 9/10


Just got back from watching it tonight, let me tell you, the first big
surprise was how how many people turned out for it, for a Thursday
night the place was packed as if Harry Potter had just come out, it's
been a while since my local theatre was like that.

Now to the movie itself. I liked the first one but this one was an
improvement. Mostly because of Scott Speedman's character Michael. The
last movie only gave us a glimpse into what he has become, and here we
get to see him kick butt alongside Selene as what is pretty much an
equal. Watching him fight and take-down werewolves was great.

The action scenes were bigger, with great direction and camera-work.
the special effects are also great, especially the scene with their
winged-nemesis pursuing their truck. Make-up is amazingly well done. It
was refreshing to see that the werewolves were still practical make-up
creations rather than CG.

There was also the added bonus of sex scenes. one where a guy is having
fun with a couple chick vampires, and one between the two leads. we get
to see most of Beckinsale's lovely figure (MILF is an understatement)
but no direct frontal shots. ladies will enjoy much shirtless Speedman
action.

The opening segment makes it worth a look, i definitely recommend it to
anyone who liked the first or thought it had promise.
