Underworld: Blood Wars
Underworld: Blood Wars mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Selene normally wears high heel boots. They briefly turn into flats during her caged fight with Varga, right before he betrays her. (00:26:40)


Plot hole: Michael is portrayed as having been killed by having his throat cut. This contradicts prior films, which portray him as being far too powerful to die by traditional means. (Ex. In the second film, he is repeatedly shot and impaled, sustaining far greater damage to his body, but returns to life upon going into a hibernation-like state for a short period.) Unless he is brought back in a future installment, the portrayal of his death makes no sense in the context of the series.

Suggested correction: Not only was his throat slit, but all his blood was drained from his body, which is different than the other times he was nearly killed. The blood is the key. However, Selene had to intervene at least 3 times to save Michael. For example, she cut off Viktor's head as he was about to kill Michael. But, as you say, even though the audience is lead to believe he's dead, it could just be a cliffhanger and we may find out a drop of blood was left in his body, or through some other method he fully recovers.


Continuity mistake: This film portrays vampires burning up instantly upon being touched by sunlight. Prior films showed the process as being less instantaneous, and potentially even survivable as long as they get out of the sunlight quickly enough.


Trivia: Was originally rumored to be the final entry in the series to star Kate Beckinsale, though series co-creator Len Wiseman confirmed that there are plans for one final film in the franchise featuring her character Selene, in addition to a spin-off television series which will be a sort-of reboot with a different tone and focus.


Trivia: Early in the film, Thomas and Semira wander by a painting that the camera lingers on while walking down a hallway. The painting is of Vlad the Third or "Vlad the Impaler," a historical figure who was the basis for the character Count Dracula.


Trivia: The only entry in the series to not by co-written by either of the series co-creators Len Wiseman or Danny McBride. McBride (not to be confused with the actor of the same name) co-wrote the first three films, while Wiseman co-wrote the first four films.


More trivia for Underworld: Blood Wars

Selene: There is no beginning, there is no end. There is only becoming.

Selene: I have lived for a thousand years, and I may live a thousand more, or I may die tomorrow. But I no longer fear death, for I have known it once already.

Semira: Don't think, Varga. You'll hurt yourself.

Question: Do we know that Michael is dead for sure? It seems way too abrupt, against character and anti-climactic for him to have died in the manner alluded to in the film. Or should we assume that not seeing his corpse or hearing 100% confirmation of his death means he might still be alive?


Answer: Selena herself said, that Michael was dead. The actor who played him really didn't want to return to the role.
