Nice package deal for first-time Underworld buyers

"I enjoyed Underworld and Evolution, but I hadn't gotten around to adding them to my library. The timely bundling/repackaging of these two films (to coincide with the Rise of the Lycans premier) seemed like the best value for investing in the DVDs.
The main selling point for me is that this double feature includes the unrated extended cut of the first film -- which wasn't immediately obvious on Amazon's product page at the time of this writing. I had to go to Circuit City and look on the back of the box to confirm. An added bonus if you buy this in a store is the online promotional code to see Lycans for free in the theater (a $10 value). It's also unclear if the Amazon version includes the movie ticket, as there's no mention of it.
It's worth noting the extended cut in this release does not contain the second bonus disc from the original extended cut release, which means you won't be getting the extra featurettes -- or the mini comic book. The original "Fangs vs. Fiction" documentary, outtakes, and commentary are still present, so it's not completely stripped. The Evolution disc is essentially unchanged.
In summary, if you already own the extended cut and sequel DVDs, this new Double Feature packaging doesn't give you anything you don't already have -- other than a new cover pic of dual-wielding hottie Kate (and the Lycans theater ticket code if you purchase at brick and mortar). However, first-time death dealers will find a lot of value for a bargain price. Take a bite!"
