The film has a logical plot, but moves very fast. I understand that the director and Jovavich were shut out of the editing phase of the movie, and were both very angry about what the studio did to shorten the film and emphasis action over story. Too bad that we'll never get to see the full 122 minute film, as the cut scenes might have added in more of the human interaction the final film gives short shrift to. Nevertheless, the film is fast paced, the fight scenes are choreographed like a cross between martial arts and dancing, and it looks good. Also, she kills 700 guys in black armor; she's no slacker.
I'll agree that the film plot is thin, but there's enough there to make me care about Violet, and to cheer her on when she goes to rescue six. 700 men, guys! That is some female warrior badassery the likes of which we don't usually get to see. Mila may have disavowed the film, but I like to watch it once a year, just to image a world where a woman could be that strong, that determined, and that indomitable.
Generally I consider Ultraviolet for a weak film.
I rate it with 2 and half stars.
For action lovers, not recommended.
Do moviemakers think the audience is stupid or what?
