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.

Did You Know?


In early scenes, Violet changes her hair color from blue to black to purple and back to black. Also, Violet frequently wears clothes which she appears to be able to alter the color of at will and the colors change according to her mood. When Violet is getting tested for Hemoglophagia the vest she wears constantly changes colors from green, to purple, to yellow, and to red. In the fight at the Arch-Ministry's headquarters, Violet changes her suit color from white to red by the addition of blood on the palms of her gloves (which spreads over her suit). It is unknown if it is the abilities of the clothes themselves or if Violet is manipulating the clothing to switch colors. See more »

User Reviews

Like a German techno video with badly translated Japanese one-liners for dialogue... only less coherent.
5 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had hopes for this movie based on the trailer, but it turned out to be one of the worst I've ever seen.

The special effects range from mediocre to kinda cool, but the plot is too sketchy and absurd to justify their existence. Milla Jovovich's hair and jacket change colors for no discernible reason throughout the film. I think the pretty colors are supposed to distract us from the incoherent script, but it doesn't work. The Sky Captain-style post-processing just makes everything look blurry. (And why is it applied to only half the shots?) Just about everything in this movie is borrowed from something else, and it's slapped together on the thinnest of premises and tarted up with lots of CGI. When there's a break from the ridiculously-choreographed action sequences, the audience is bludgeoned with nonsensical subplots and indescribably awful dialogue. By the time the heroine met the villain in their final showdown, the audience in my theater was laughing out loud.

If you appreciate Milla Jovovich's body, it might be possible to enjoy this film by renting the DVD and watching it with the sound off and your techno MP3 collection blaring in the background while you do something productive, like picking the gunk out from beneath your toenails. Or you could spare yourself the pain and just get The Fifth Element instead.
