Storyline

Set in the late 21st century, a subculture of humans have emerged who have been modified genetically by a vampire-like disease, giving them enhanced speed, incredible stamina and acute intelligence, and as they are set apart from "normal" and "healthy" humans, the world is pushed to the brink of worldwide civil war aimed at the destruction of the "diseased" population. In the middle of this crossed-fire is - an infected beautiful woman - Ultraviolet, who finds herself protecting a nine-year-old boy who has been marked for death by the human government as he is believed to be a threat to humans. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

Kurt Wimmer has stated that the film was directed in such a way as to allow for an alternative theory about the story. In this theory, this the character of Six is actually Violet from the future, who comes back after a cure for hemoglophagia has been developed. This explains how Six has the cure and nobody else does. It also explains why Violet is so adamant about protecting a human, despite her goal in life being to kill them all (although she doesn't know Six is her from the future, she can just feel it). The theory also explains why Six often disobeys Violet and leads where they go. Being Violet from the future, Six remembers how things happened in the original timeline, and can prevent them from occurring this time around. See more »

Goofs

When we see Violet and Six leaving Garth's truck, Six has a jacket on. In the next shot the jacket is gone and neither one of them is carrying it. In the very next shot the jacket is back. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits play over shots of many different "Ultraviolet" comic book covers which were designed specifically for this purpose -- there is no "Ultraviolet" comic book series. See more »

Wait for the director's cut!
8 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

The film Ultraviolet is a great premise and has some props here and there but it's a near complete failure of a film. WHY? Because of the studio that green light this movie. Information has been exposed that writer/director Kurt Wimmer's vision of the film was cut by the studio by over 30 minutes, 30 minutes that are actually very important to the story, characters and action. So wait for this film to come out on DVD, because the shorten 88 minute verison of the film will totally disappoint everyone. Give this film a chance, when the director's cut comes out, I will Milla Jovovich was very sexy and bad ass in this film, hopefully she will continue to do such films.
