Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

Sonja (Rhona Mitra) is killed and Lucian (Michael Sheen) is forced to watch. The lycans and werewolves storm the castle and triumph over the vampires and are no longer slaves. Lucian tells his fellow wolves that this is merely the beginning and that the conflict is far from over. Viktor (Bill Nighy) survives the fight against Lucian and enters a hibernation chamber. The last scene is the first scene from the first Underworld film: Selene (Kate Beckinsale) looking below at the city streets. Dialogue from the first film is heard: when Kraven tells Selene that Viktor killed her family and not the lycans; and that Viktor spared her life because she reminded him of his daughter Sonja. Selene replies: "Lies!"

Continuity mistake: The scene in which Sonja is executed in front of Lucian is incredibly different from when the same scene was portrayed in the original movie as a flashback. Obviously they had to reshoot it to account for the new actress portraying Sonja, but not only is the basic setting visibly different, but important details of the scenes have been altered as well. Ex. In the flashback scene in "Underworld", there's a giant crowd of slaves in a cage behind Lucian, and Sonja screams and slowly burns up. In this film, the crowd of slaves is not there, and Sonja instantly burns up without screaming - in fact, she's rather calm and trying to calm down Lucian. You can't argue that Lucian's memory of the events have changed over time, as the "Underworld" movies have made it clear that immortals have impeccable and essentially perfect memory (more-or-less genetic memory) that can even be absorbed if their blood is consumed by vampires.

Lucian: I've lived by their rules my entire life. I've protected them. Envied them. And for what? To be treated like an animal. We are not animals! Is this want you want? We can be slaves, or we can be... LYCANS!

Question: In "Underworld Evolution" Tanis said (to Kate and Michael) that Viktor killed Selen's family in Winter when Lucian escaped with the key from the castle. But in this movie, Viktor at the end goes into the hibernation chamber. How possible? Is this a continuity error?


Chosen answer: He's badly injured, so he goes into the hibernation chamber to heal. Doesn't mean that he's staying in there for hundreds of years; he could easily emerge as soon as he's healed up and kill Selene's family off.
