Storyline

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. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

In the theatrical trailer, when Daxus punches Violet's hologram, the gun he is holding has been digitally removed from the scene (it's there in the movie). See more »

Goofs

When Violet and Six are walking down the steps (before getting a card phone and making a call and before going into Shanghai Pearl Tower and giving Six the credit card bracelet) they pause on the steps as Violet gets a communication on a star shaped device in her hand and she says "Daxus". A close up shot of the device Violet shows her trousers and belt up to her navel, however, just before and after they are well below her navel. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Violet: Hello. My name is Violet and I was born into a world you may not understand.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits play over shots of many different "Ultraviolet" comic book covers which were designed specifically for this purpose -- there is no "Ultraviolet" comic book series. See more »

Errrrr.... What?
3 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is a little difficult to imagine why this film was released in its current form. It has some potential, the action sequences look a little mundane as we have seen it all before but they are quick and effective. The story is quirky enough to be interesting and some of the backdrops look good.

The problem is, Ultraviolet neither makes sense nor holds together as a film. Huge chunks of action and story seem to have been lost on the cutting room floor. The film is left overloaded with the expensive bits that had already been paid for. Lots of sweeping city-scapes and shots of Mila walking down corridors don't make a film.

It reminds me of other Japanese live action Manga smash-ups (See Kasshern etc). The problem is that Japanese films have every right not to make sense and be completely over the top, as it is what they do best. Unfortunately, due to a westernised need for slight reality, Hollywood have attempted same thing and ended up with a cheap looking film with a poor script stuck together with a bunch of crap one liners.
