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 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 »

Goofs

Before Violet fights with the Blood Chinois she drops her gun. Just before they begin to fight, the floor is completely clear, and the gun is nowhere to be seen. See more »

Quotes

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 »

Definitely not Equilibrium
5 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kurt Wimmer who wrote and directed Equilibrium, which imho is a great movie, failed miserably to repeat his former success. The idea's behind the movie had visible potential but unfortunately the execution was extremely poor. Bad acting, a confusing and altogether nonsensical story line, and most of all bad writing really killed this one for me. This movie seemed more like a commercial for CGI than anything else. The CGI however was excellent (except for the last scene, I guess they ran out of money)and probably the most interesting part of the movie. The action which is why I saw the movie suffered from repetition: from the characters, to the setups (Violet is being attacked when she is out-numbered), to the moves, unnecessary sword fighting when they have guns with bullets, unnecessarily repetitive situations (big circle everyone attacks at once and violet wins with ease no challenging battle), and a lack of depth. Kurt really missed the mark, better luck next time.
