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.

Really, you can't blame Ms. Jovovich.

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.

Derivative, adolescent tosh.

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

Just when you thought Aeon Flux couldn't have been any more rubbish, along comes Ultraviolet to prove you wrong.

Director Kurt Wimmer claims to have written Ultraviolet specifically with lead actress Milla Jovovich in mind. No, I don't know what Jovovich did to deserve this either . . .

The only redeeming feature is a production design so outrageously mad that you will genuinely have no idea what you're watching for more than half the time.

The cheesy CGI effects look like they were done on a 15-year-old Macintosh.

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

... inacreditável que o diretor do eficiente Equilibrium seja o responsável por uma porcaria mal roteirizada, pavorosamente dirigida, repleta de efeitos visuais capengas e péssimas atuações como esta produção.

Amid every action cliche in the book, outmoded stereotypes, and a plot derivative of every futuristic drama made in the last fifteen years, Ultraviolet comes off as nothing more than a pale copy of better, more inventive films.
