Now, watching this came about by accident cos I thought Netflix had restarted Underworld, whereas I knew I had 40 mins til the end. So I pressed play, fast-forwarded through to the -40m mark, and then rewound back through again cos I didn’t recognise anything… only to find I’d clicked on this sequel instead of the first film! So then I watched this next.
You can almost see the negotiation with Kate Beckinsale’s agent, as film 1 focused on her being badass in a black leather catsuit. Whereas the sequel upped the ante and demanded a nude/sex scene (it’ll advance the plot, honest) – and all the limbs/angles are strategic so you don’t see any of her rude bits, other than a very focused lingering shot on her belly.
