Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil, The Fifth Element), Cameron Bright (X-Men 3), Nick Chinlund (The Legend of Zorro) and William Fichtner (The Longest Yard) star in this theatrical set in the late 21st century, a subculture of humans have emerged who have been modified genetically by a vampire-like disease (Hemophagia), 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 (a war between humans and hemophages) aimed at the destruction of the "diseased" population. In the middle of this crossed-fire is - an infected 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.

Critics Consensus: An incomprehensible and forgettable sci-fi thriller, Ultraviolet is inept in every regard.

Despite the expository speeches draped over this like birthday bunting, the story remains largely...

Some spectacular action, though obviously digital: free of risk, free of drama.

Derivative, adolescent tosh.

Incoherent video gamey sci-fi action movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie includes repeated (and repetitive) scenes of video game-like violence, with shooting, cars and motorcycles racing, falling, and martial artsy kicking. Weapons range from futuristic-zappy to old-fashioned. (For the most part, these conflicts don't result in bloody injuries, just "action.") The genetically engineered Violet protects a young boy, the target of multiple assailants. Violet wears very tight outfits; in an early scene, she's instructed to "strip" before entering a security scanner, revealing a shadowy version of her nude backside as she walks away from the camera. Language includes a couple of s-words, slang for genitals, "hell," and "damn."
