Storyline

In 2078, in the wake of a global pandemic of vampirism, a sub-species of disease-modified humans find themselves possessing extraordinary agility, enhanced strength, incredible stamina, and acute intelligence. As a result, humankind is now pushed to the brink of a brutal, worldwide civil war. Now, against the backdrop of the imminent confrontation between the government and the "others", Ultraviolet, an infected beautiful Haemophage, finds herself caught in the middle, protecting Six, a helpless nine-year-old boy who has been marked for death by the military forces of Daxus. Can Ultraviolet destroy Daxus' ultimate anti-Haemophage weapon? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

Though the film largely underperformed in the United States, it performed well in Japan and was popular enough there that an anime series based on the film was released, titled Ultraviolet: Code 044 (2008). See more »

Goofs

When Violet leaves with Six she says "Don't over-think it, just turns out I was right" but her mouth clearly says something else. See more »

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.
