Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil, The Fifth Element), Cameron Bright (X-Men 3), Nick Chinlund (The Legend of Zorro) and William Fichtner (The Longest Yard) star in this theatrical set in the late 21st century, a subculture of humans have emerged who have been modified genetically by a vampire-like disease (Hemophagia), giving them enhanced speed, incredible stamina and acute intelligence, and as they are set apart from "normal" and "healthy" humans, the world is pushed to the brink of worldwide civil war (a war between humans and hemophages) aimed at the destruction of the "diseased" population. In the middle of this crossed-fire is - an infected woman - Ultraviolet, who finds herself protecting a nine-year-old boy who has been marked for death by the human government as he is believed to be a threat to humans.

From others of its type,
and comic books and video games,
but it's not worth the hype
A futuristic setting
A totalitarian regime
A dictator's lust for power
Is essentially the theme
I've seen something just like it
in Vendetta with a "V"
One hero dares to stand up to
The rogue Arch-Ministry
A disease becomes pandemic
Your blood cells it devours
Victims turn into "vampires"
With extra-special powers
But none so rare as Violet
Whose eyes can see the sun
An expert in "Gun Kata" skills
and any type of gun
She infiltrates a guarded lab
And steals a death device
That's capable of wiping out
Vampires in a trice
Just like Pandora and the box
She can't resist, and peeks
And finds out that the weapon
May have something she seeks
Action packed with CGI
The plot is sadly lacking
Rent to look at Milla J.
And then send this one packing
Ultraviolet did just that.
Basic storyline, great action scenes and colorful.
I found it entertaining, fun to watch.
I found it eye candy and there is a definate different style, strangely it reminds me a bit of that movie with Christian Bale that flew under the radar but was oh so good (Equilibrium)
It has been added to my collection, and strangely enough I prefer it over Aeon flux (which was still good)
guy,but even she can't save this disaster.she looks hot and she's in
great shape.she's just in the wrong movie.i could only take so much of
her character,V(Short for Violet)going up against increasingly
overwhelming odds time after time and emerging with barely a scrape.and
that's mostly all this movie is,in my mind:a collection of action/fight
sequences,with pretty much no coherent plot.i didn't particularly like
Either of the first two Resident Evil movies,but this is worse than
both of them.i don't mind saying i was bored out of my skull.even the
action sequences become boring,once you see the same thing over and
over again.talk about a train wreck.this movie really made my head
hurt.i'm sorry i lost 94 minutes of my life for this thing.check out
Resident Evil:Extinction(on the big screen)instead.anyway,for me
Ultraviolet is a definite 1/5
The 3D special effects used here in Ultraviolet were extraordinary and very dazzling! I even loved the opening credits that portrayed Violet in comic book covers like those from the DC/Marvel comics! The artwork was just stunning!
Milla Jovovich did an impressive job in playing her character Violet throughout the film. She has also demonstrated the women are equally strong fighters as men in both movies and real life. Violet could be looked up to as a superhero even though she doesn't possess any special powers. The protagonist uses either her bare hands or weaponry in combat. Hemophages aren't considered superhuman.
One thing I couldn't comprehend was how could a digitally produced hologram of Violet drive a car up to Dexus when the real Violet was hiding with Six atop a skyscraper from a distance? It just didn't make any sense!

I wanted SO much to like Ultraviolet,but it is plagued by poor editing and subplots that are either unfinished or that
simply go nowhere.It is all look but no substance. Read more
Nasty...I can't say it any other way. This was a very bad bad movie and I would'nt recomend it to anyone. Read morePublished on Oct. 30 2007 by Paul
I sat down to this with low expectations and it certainly didn't disappoint. I didn't expect the film to be emotionally engaging or that it be brilliantly plotted. Read morePublished on Sept. 12 2007 by William J. Walker
