Rotten: Undemanding, unengaging, and glaringly unoriginal, Ultraviolet gives real comic books a bad name.

"Hello. My name is Violet and I was born into a world you may not understand." That's a fucking understatement! I'm guessing the budget was tight though eh, still, must have saved a bit by not hiring a writer. Ultraviolet is an odd film, it looks like a bad video-game and has a storyline to match. The script is awful, although there are some hilarious moments (Are you mental?) and the effects are just headache inducing. It biggest flaw is it's lack of character development and the most unbelievable part of this SGI film is the relationship between Violet and 6. It's not 'So bad it's good' either but I can't help but think it's going to become a cult classic. Laughable but not hate-able.

This is a bit of a misstep for Kurt Wimmer, who really knocked it out of the park with his visual style in Equilibrium. The style is all still here - as well as a beautiful new colour scheme - but the story is lacking. You'll never guess what this movie is about from the get-go: vampires. This reminds me of Aeon Flux in its eye candy, but with all the flat characters and the nothing story, it doesn't amoung to much.

The filmmakers have had a huge attempt to create something totally new and astonishing like "The Matrix" back in 1999. Well, it only is an attempt. I can't remember when did I last see a movie where I almost dozed off. The story is set in the future and there's a civil war between the government and these blood infected humans aka "vampires". Well, fuck me sideways and set the truth free. The truth is... It's crap. But because they did have an effort to create something with a "wow" factor, I'll give an extra half of a star.
