Set in the late 21st century, a subculture of humans have emerged who have been modified genetically by a vampire-like disease, 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 aimed at the destruction of the "diseased" population. In the middle of this crossed-fire is - an infected beautiful 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.

Did You Know?


In the beginning, when Violet is escorted into the building, the corridor is painted in yellow and black bands which seem to form 6 roughly equilateral triangles of alternating yellow and black: the "fallout shelter" symbol. This is not, as previously stated, the logo of the Umbrella Corporation from Resident Evil (2002). The Umbrella logo is eight red and white isosceles triangles forming an octagon. See more »


Nearing the end of the film, Violet infiltrates the complex and makes her way into a white room with tons of men in white suits. She starts fighting them and when a couple of guys come at her, she moves quickly and one guy stabs the other in the chest/gut. Now she goes to elbow one of the guys in the face, watch his helmet, it comes flying off, revealing his head and hair. Then the camera quickly changes to another angle, the helmet is perfect on straight. See more »

Hot body, not much else going on
3 March 2006 | by (Lawton, OK) – See all my reviews

Ultraviolet was embarrassingly terrible on so many levels. My husband and I usually really dig the comic book and action movies, so I think that our expectations were reasonable for the genre. The kinds of movies that Ultraviolet tried to channel were X-Men, The Matrix and Underworld. Unfortunately, this movie failed to do so.

1) Dialogue was laughably bad. One of Milla's lines was actually "Because these beautiful moments turn evil when they're over." What?? This was regarding a romantic pass made at her. Totally incongruous with the setting. 2) Excessive use of CGI is a personal irritant. Additionally, the motorcycle chase scenes were only one step above TRON. I might as well have been watching my 11 year old neighbors play some video game. 3) Zero character development. I didn't care about Violet, the french guy, the scientist guy, the pretty boy, or the evil nose filter guy. I didn't care about their individual goals (mainly because they weren't very clear). I didn't care about characters dying, and I didn't care about the revelation at the end; the only indicator that I had that it was important was her somewhat awed reaction.

To be fair, Milla Jovovich has an incredible face and body and is well-suited for fight scenes. If all-CGI, all-the-time is your thing, then you'll be thrilled with the loads of glossed-over fight scenes involving Milla and hordes of green screen baddies. If you're like our entire theater, you're bored. Really, fake fights just don't impress me.
