Apt for those who believe that FX can make a whole movie. I liked the story, and, come on, Milla Jovovich stretching and bending...

Terrible film. Do not waste your time on this dreck. The plot... LOL--Not.

No-brainer sci-fi thriller.

the fight scenes were pretty laughable. esp the one where she takes down a group of guys in one second. even aeon flux was better than this movie b/c it had a better storyline.

the story is not bad, but the CGI is awful!

This movie is the definition of a mixed bag. The visuals try to look like a comic book and are very stylized to try to cover up the atrocious special effects. (Seriously, there are GameCube games with better graphics than this movie.) Sometimes the stylizing/cover-up works really well, and sometimes it doesn't. A lot of the visuals are creative and truly stunning, and sometimes they're garish and harsh to look at. The story isn't very deep or complex, but the world of the film is creative, and I liked the imagination that went into the characters and the fight scenes. Some serious moments really work, and some are unintentionally funny. It could have been a lot better, but honestly, I kind of like it. It gets a lot of mileage out of the premise, the visual design and the fight scenes. It's not great, but I'd watch it again.

Lots of rip-offs right here, story's a lot like Moore's V for Vendetta and all those gun-fu are from Equilibrium. Nonetheless it's fun film.

In my top 5 worst ever films.

Interesting premise - weak script.

"My name is Violet, and I was born into a world that you may not understand."
You got THAT right, lady!
And I counted 3 times she rehashed that line (this is a world that you may not understand)...it may have been even more times than that, I wasn't paying full attention, sadly...She reused that line so many times in the narration, it's as if it was some lame attempt to EXCUSE the convolution of the story and environment in which the story took place. Oh, right lady....it's NOT that the STORY is weird (and not in a cool way)and poorly executed...it's that I DON'T "get it". It's not YOU, it's ME...Geez, it's not enough of an insult that I paid as much as I did to see this...you have to insult ME too?
Please skip this...Even if you like Milla Jovovitch....in fact, if you DO like her, see Resident Evil instead: at least THERE you'll get a split-second peek at her coat hanger chest pegs and find out whether or not she's a real blond. No spoiler alert from me, go find out lol.

This is a weir movie that I like for some reason I cannot put my finger on. The story is not incomprehensible. It is simple. Vampire is a disease. There is a cure. Add a big-brother element and some gun and sword play, place the plot in the future where helicopters still exist but motorcycles can defy gravity, and you have a flashy quirky comic book movie. Not deep, just fun, for the most part.

I Don't Milla Jovovich.

Bad storyline, bad effect, bad in all sides of aspects, maybe entertaining for the audiences, but for the professional movie reviewer, it's worthless to be watched

Milla's acting chops are on point, as always, but Ultraviolet makes Aeon Flux look like Citizen Kane.

One of those movies that I watch no matter how bad it is

The writer and director of Equilibrium is back with another "video gamey sci-fi" movie. Jovovich takes a break from zombies and tries her hand at vampires. "Spectacular action"

the cgi looks like a video game at times....boooo
