I like this movie. A lot. I like that the lead is a woman, and that she is totally badass. The colors in the film are emphatic and bold, but also neat, clean and crisp. The film feels very futuristic, and the architecture of Shanghi helps with that. The overall look of the film is very cool!

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.

Very Forgettable movie with over the top action, bad dialog, bad special effects and a very odd storyline.

Table so called a superhero movie that nobody has heard about until watch mojo puts this movie on top 10 best action sequences in movies but is a movie starring milla jovovich. Their are two things that I like in this entire movie, hence me giving this movie two stars for two good things, but hey I'm giving this movie a chance, I never give this treatment to other makes but this garbage fun movie is an exception. Now for my two good, the action sequences because they are alright crazy and hilarious to watch, their so cheesy that's it's fun to watch, and milla jovovichs character violet and she appeal to the audience, that's the only reason that somebody would see this movie at all, it's because the poster for this movie is milla jovovich and her skinny stomach showing, not for oh it's some kind of superhero movie. But without milla jovovich I would give this movie a half star but she's in it so it's still terrible, but not as terrible. The story is garbage, just terrible , but still like milla jovovich s action sequences, but besides that the connection of 6 and milla jovovich just do not click, it's just dumb.

The acting is comically horrible.

There is actually not much to report. The plot is not quite uninteresting, but the CGI / greenscreen effects and the dialogues are very weak.

Generally I consider Ultraviolet for a weak film.

I rate it with 2 and half stars.

For action lovers, not recommended.

The BMW motorcycle does not sound nicely like a 2 cylinder boxer engine would, it sounds rather like a 4 cylinder engine! just a cheap fake!
Do moviemakers think the audience is stupid or what?

I'm only giving this one star because it's Mila Jovovich, otherwise it's crap!

A film that we all knew would be terrible and it sure was just that, The story is old and has been done so many times, The action was poor and pretty lifeless, The effects were terrible, Poor acting and the script felt like it was written by teenagers, It's silly and corny it feels like a cheap PS2 game, The only reason it has a full star is because I have a soft spot for Milla Jovovich and I think she was only in it for the easy pay check.

I strongly disagree with the critics on the Resident Evil series, which I find fantastically entertaining and for what they intend to be, very adept. But unfortunately, a good thing only goes so far in the movie world. Ultraviolet is the worst of the Resident Evil series, blended with copycat Matrix bits and a suffocating dose of Japanese stylization. The results are bland and extremely confusing. At times, it's shameful just how bad Ultraviolet's CGI is. All too often, the best sequences are cut away from, likely due to budget and effects issues. It's a real shame too. The cutting shot that Ultraviolet takes at radicalism of all forms is admirable and in the right light, it could have been something, or at least entertaining. As is, it's hard to even admire Jovovich, one of my favorite female action stars. Not worth your time or your pawn shop dollars, as it turns out.

This show was very interesting. Milla is compelling. The killing looks more like dance or poetry as the movie takes you through a comic book feel in a dystopian world full of metaphor and masonic and Christian symbolism.

I like this movie a lot. It's entertaining and fast paced. The acting could be better but I liked it because of Milla Jovovich and the action scenes. I've seen better movies but this is 100% eye-candy to me and hey, I like what I like.

Whatever this was supposed to be, or what it might've been in it's original form, I don't know yah, but what's up on the screen finally is no less than a blatant style steal from The Matrix, and its that without any of the supporting scripting fills to prop it up or fill it out. I'm a fan of Milla J. but this was a chore to endure.

This would have been better off as an animated video, rather than a live action. The CGI was poorly executed and the plot was overly used and very lazy. I fell asleep trying to watch this.
