Although it looks cool, appearances aren't everything.

Premiere
Amid every action cliche in the book, outmoded stereotypes, and a plot derivative of every futuristic drama made in the last fifteen years, Ultraviolet comes off as nothing more than a pale copy of better, more inventive films.
25
A film to be enjoyed only by science-fiction movie completists and middle school boys with extreme cases of attention deficit disorder.

New York Daily News
Ultraviolet, unscreened for critics, is unfit for consumption.
25
TV Guide
An all-but-incoherent mess whose main components are palpably fake-looking CGI effects, video-game-style action sequences and Milla Jovovich's admirably taut abdomen, Kurt Wimmer's film epitomizes just about everything wrong with post-MATRIX, comic book-/video-game-inspired, Hong Kong-action-style sci-fi thrillers.
25
Jovovich is bad, and not in a good way. She turns in an epically expressionless performance (maybe she thought it was one of her modeling gigs?) but she sure looks great.

ReelViews
This is another one of those pointless action superhero movies that unfolds like a video game in which the viewer is unable to participate.

The Hollywood Reporter
The latest entry in the "This film is so bad we're not screening it for critics" genre.
20
Unengaging, uninspired and unwatchable. A criminal waste of time and talent.

Entertainment Weekly
Ultraviolet, warns someone, ''Don't overthink it.'' Sage advice for anyone masochistic enough to watch this pile of poorly pixelated vampire poo.

New York Post
A cut-rate ripoff of "Aeon Flux" with Milla Jovovich as a butt-kicking futuristic heroine in a midriff-baring bodysuit, is ultrastupid, ultra-incoherent, ultrasilly - and way, way ultraboring.
