Ultraviolet is absolutely worth a look -- if not a listen or a thought.

a kinetic art piece of color, sound, and movement that exists somewhere between the Underworld movies and Matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle, with just a hint of Tron thrown in.

This nearly incomprehensible guilty pleasure is actually a great deal of fun.

When I saw the trailer for "Ultraviolet," I thought: Well, here's another PG-13 movie with a slender, beautiful heroine in exotic garb in a flick made for fan boys." I was right.

If you have no problem with an experience that feels like an adrenaline shot administered directly to your brain, then this is the place to start.

Exactly what you expect--a slick, slight, energetic video game of a movie that is far better than most will admit.

The repetition of the action scenes play like an avant-garde joke about the indistinguishable nature of Hollywood fight scenes. Think Warhol's soup cans, only with actors posing with swords.

Woefully nonsensical from start to finish...

The most receptive audience will mainly be enlightened to know that you can make a movie as thoroughly unprofessional as this one and still get it released in 3,000 theaters.

One of the worst movies of 2006 so far.

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

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

The narrative is so jumbled that even the actors can't seem to keep track of what exactly is meant to be happening.

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

Unengaging, uninspired and unwatchable. A criminal waste of time and talent.
