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

In an early scene, Daxus is seen breaking a seal on, and then drinking, a hot coffee from a self-heating mug. Self-heating products, both foods and drinks, have been available in the real world for some years now, most of them using an exothermic chemical reaction to heat their contents. See more »

Goofs

When Violet is on the motorcycle on the roof and is about to speed towards and jump through the helicopter, she spins the back tire and then pops the clutch and takes off. If she was holding in the clutch, the back tire would not be spinning. 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 »

User Reviews

 
Underrated.
12 May 2020 | by hsabgardnerSee all my reviews

Look, let's be serious. The movie is flashy and fantastic, buried in cgi and special effects, and the plot is rather obscure and strange. What makes the movie good is that it does go over the top. This movie dazzles.

If Mila catches your eye, this movie may be the finest piece that she did around this time. So beautiful.
