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 early scenes, Violet changes her hair color from blue to black to purple and back to black. Also, Violet frequently wears clothes which she appears to be able to alter the color of at will and the colors change according to her mood. When Violet is getting tested for Hemoglophagia the vest she wears constantly changes colors from green, to purple, to yellow, and to red. In the fight at the Arch-Ministry's headquarters, Violet changes her suit color from white to red by the addition of blood on the palms of her gloves (which spreads over her suit). It is unknown if it is the abilities of the clothes themselves or if Violet is manipulating the clothing to switch colors. See more »

Goofs

In the 87 minute PG-13 theatrical cut, it seems that according to Violet's flashback, her husband was killed when the lab was raided by government officials which was where she was accidentally infected with hemoglophagia blood. In the 94 minute extended version however, it seems that he is merely taken into custody while she is as well, for government testing after being infected. The roles are reversed in this unrated cut as Violet's husband in a later scene is shown to have made a new life with another wife who had his children, after believing that Violet had died. This was either a result of poor editing or an intended change by Sony Pictures for the film's theatrical cut, which was then retconned in the unrated cut with the extra footage. See more »

You Need to See the Uncut Version (DVD).
1 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Having watched the regular release version I was somewhat confused as to what was going on, though I was able to surmise the base elements of the plot, but when I saw the uncut version with the scenes left in, things made a lot more sense.

The plot seems a bit obscure at first; unless you're sharp, you're not going to be able to follow it. That is all I will say about that.

It's true the acting wasn't magnificent but I really don't know what everyone is complaining about. Plenty of action, yes, and Milla Jovovich looks great. I thought it was a pretty good watch myself, and I am in the minority there. I definitely don't think it's a waste of time, though it is a bit dark. It's now in my DVD collection, in fact.

Rent it, watch the uncut version. Though not my favourite movie of all time, I enjoyed it.
