    For this violent yet gore-free film, clearly designed for horny teenaged video game wizards, writer-director Kurt Wimmer stages a succession of fight sequences that pit V against helmeted thugs who appear to have raided the Star Wars storm trooper costume closet.

    Although it looks cool, appearances aren’t everything.
  3. Mr. Wimmer is more concerned with fetishizing his heroine and patronizing his audience. The verdict? Ultrasilly.
  4. A film to be enjoyed only by science-fiction movie completists and middle school boys with extreme cases of attention deficit disorder.

    Jovovich is bad, and not in a good way. She turns in an epically expressionless performance (maybe she thought it was one of her modeling gigs?) but she sure looks great.
  6. The latest entry in the "This film is so bad we're not screening it for critics" genre.
  7. Jovovich, who's shown sensitivity in her dramatic work, looks spectacularly bored as she power-kicks her way through one bloody pile-up after another. That boredom, like the mystery virus at the center of the film, is contagious.

    Oh man. This movie is hilarious! Don't let my rating fool you, this movie is horrible, I mean REALLY horrible. My rating is based on the Oh man. This movie is hilarious! Don't let my rating fool you, this movie is horrible, I mean REALLY horrible. My rating is based on the fact that I had a blast watching it in the theater and laughing at it. I kid you not, the final fight scene takes place in pitch dark. I guess they burned through their special effects budget showing the same 5 idiotic looking 'troupers' getting mowed down again and again. The plot goes beyond nonsensical; the main character's motivations are completely inscrutable. Early in the movie she claims she 'hate's all humans' and wants to kill them all. Five minutes later (seriously, I'm not exaggerating here) she's massacring every vampire she can find, including some that were previously her friends and compatriots to protect a human child who's going to die in a couple of hours anyway. If you've ever gotten a kick out of watching a truly terrible piece of cinema with some friends I whole-heartedly recommend this movie. But if you're expecting a serious movie avoid it all costs. It is terrible, as in 'it might give you leprosy' terrible. Expand

Even their main ideas are almost the same: a female assassin with superhuman powers quits her mission after she uncovers a biological secret that changes her perspective, turning her former friends against her. Unfortunately 'Ultraviolet' is much worse than 'Aeon Flux' because of its awful cgi, incoherent plot and repetitive, fake battles (how can someone decapitate people without any blood?)

I and most others in the theatre were laughing hysterically during the fight scenes and the acting (if you could call it that). I was falling out of my chair because i didn't believe anyone could possible create such a wreck. And then it just got so bad it wasn't funny anymore and i had to leave. IT is indescribable how bad it is. Actually worth seeing to know exactly what not to make. Expand
