This film might actually include some of the worst deliveries that I have seen in any movie in a long time.

Jovovich, who's shown sensitivity in her dramatic work, looks spectacularly bored as she power-kicks her way through one bloody pile-up after another. That boredom, like the mystery virus at the center of the film, is contagious.

This is disposable cinema, to be wiped clean from the mind as soon it's over and mercifully forgotten.

Milla Jovovich may look hot in spandex and bangs, but if you want rapidly-cut, slow-motioned-for-emphasis spectacle AND story, take in some ESPN highlights or any production by NFL Films. At least you would be getting your money's worth.

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.

The adventures of Catwoman, Elektra, Lara Croft and Aeon Flux were positively Homeric compared to this simple-minded Hi-Def tedium...

The real blood war is between this movie and the slightly better Aeon Flux, which Wimmer plagiarizes as freely as Equilibrium plagiarized Fahrenheit 451 and The Matrix.

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

Has filmmaking really become this cynical, or is it just me?

Wimmer borrows all his best ideas from other movies...then spackles over his half-assed plot with a shiny aesthetic.

Crank your brain to its lowest possible idle and you'll still overthink Ultraviolet.

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.

Overall, it's a film that can best be thought of as the work of a more cerebral Uwe Boll.

Uwe Boll would be proud of this movie. It's pretentious and oh-so-serious. The tone of the movie is one of high art, but it stinks like a landfill.

Flat-out awful in almost every respect, Ultraviolet will hopefully drive the final nail in the coffin of the sci-fi/action-babe genre.

It's not bad enough to be funny, but it's not without its moments. Most of those come when Jovovich, not the best with a catch-phrase, answers some challenge with a put-down she should have practiced more in between personal trainer sessions.
