Ultraviolet (DVD, 2006, Unrated Extended Cut)
The story was exciting; the action scenes were gorgeous; the special effects and scenery were lovely. Yes, it was all rather surreal, but that quality was well-maintained throughout the movie and therefore seemed consistent and natural. The thrill of watching the fight scenes, which were obviously designed not to be a gorefest but a sophisticated, synchronized and deadly dance. I recommend this to anyone who likes to see a movie that is beautiful, stunning and also leaves the watcher with something to think about.

I am an action fan so you may be wondering why I gave it only an average rating. Don't get me wrong, this movie is full of action- swords, guns, sci-fi style martial arts, hot babes in shiny skinsuits (well, at least one hottie, Milla Jovovich, whom you may remember from films like the 5th Element or the Resident Evil series), technologically advanced everything and did I say action? Yes, loads of the aforementioned- what it lacked, however, was a cohesive story.
I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, I'll allow that, but this movie made very little sense to me. There's a lot of talk of hemophages (think of it as a blood disorder on the level of AIDS, but gives the infected superhuman strength, speed and reflexes) and they make references to vampiric tendencies- but no one's drinking any blood and I have to be honest, I had little trouble following the story (what there was of it) - it was that it didn't seem to make much sense.
Because of the lack of character development, you meet a number of different individuals throughout the movie but never really know who they are, what they are or what drives them- other than the cheesy plot points that are offered. For instance, why is a Yakuza/Triad style gang patrolling/controlling the top ten floors of the conglomerate responsible for finding/making this malady and tracking down the infected? Didn't make sense to me.
Did I like this movie? Yes. Is this one that is in my library? Yes. Am I likely to view it again? Probably not. I've seen other action movies with lesser-known actors that I would score better than this; this one is just shelf filler for me.Read full review

Flashy SciFi Action Flick with Dim Plot.
Pros: Highly stylized, nearly seamless CGI and live action film; Guns GALORE! The beautiful and talented Milla Jovovich.
Cons: No substance. Breaks from its belief system, leaving the active viewer puzzled. Annoying, unnecessary effects and/or props.
Ultra-overkill. If you took 2005's miss, "Doom," replaced the remote gloom with immediate sterility, sliced in a supermodel and a sickly looking kid, you'd have UltraViolet. Too much time was spent on flashy video game-like effects and clearly not enough on substance or even continuity. About halfway through the film, it was as if the makers forgot the audience might actually have been paying attention. Rules that were established to help you understand Violet's world are then inexplicably broken. Violet's character lacks depth; we expect introversion (shrinking violet) or mania (ultra-violence) from the lead in. Instead she is more like an irreverent teenager - with a lot of guns. The body count for this movie is massive (which they take pains to point out). However; the blood and gore that would accompany such a feat is eliminated to maintain a PG13 rating. That bothers me on both the philosophical and the material planes. The movie combines a predictable plot with equally unoriginal dialogue and does nothing to establish Jovovich's Violet as a dynamic heroine whose wellbeing who care about past the closing credits. Shallow characterizations may be why the director felt the need to distract us by having Violet's hair and clothing change color so frequently (and also inexplicably). The bad teeth caps that looked like big pieces of orzo pasta were absolutely ridiculous as was all the freeze-frame action scene "vogueing". In the end, Violet suffered more from bad conception and execution than from her viral blood disease.
Summary: Unless all you really want are cosplay fashion tips and to learn new Goth dance club moves, skip it. BUT...at least it wasn't as bad and DareDevil or Elektra.Read full review
