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

Milla Jovovich's character uses a more authentic variant of "Gun Kata", a unique blend of gunfighting and martial arts developed by director Kurt Wimmer for his previous film Equilibrium (2002). See more »

Goofs

When the second lot of guards in black glass uniform enter the room, after it is identified that Violet is a mite, Violet begins to fight with them, however the same guard falls to the floor three times in different shots. Then when Violet defeats the guards wearing black glass uniforms, she drops both parts of the gun she previously took apart. In the first shot as she drops them, the part dropped to the viewers left of the screen lies perfectly flat on the ground. But in the next shot as Violet walks away and picks up the white case, that part of the gun is now sticking up off the ground, and is partially lying on a guard, and has now changed position.

Alternate Versions

There is an 'Unrated Extended Cut' available on DVD, this version runs to around 94 minutes and drastically improves the comprehensibility of the story. The major addition is of some voice-over exposition from Violet which mentions the affects of 'hemophagia' and more of her own personal story. There are also some alterations to combat scenes which were presumably edited for content. See more »

Definitely not Equilibrium
5 March 2006 | by ultraeliteSee 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.
