Has anyone seen it yet?
I did and I must say I expected more from it. The movie was basically just average if you ask me even though some effects were quite nicely done (but some were horroble)
The martial arts action was somehow cool but to me it reselbled alot of equilibriums gunkata, exept that she isnt as cold as john preston ^^

The movie was cool, I enjoyed most of the action scenes, especially the one where - she makes everyone on that roof trying to kill her shoot each other just by dodging their bullets -. Milla was teh hawtness, and that's basically what made the movie enjoyable and viewable, otherwise I wouldn't have even thought of picking this movie up. Mainly because the storyline was crap and borderline cliche, and the cool visuals didn't really make up for that, but it didn't hurt. Oh well...The best line in the movie - [car pulls up to over 700 soldiers, violet gets out of the car] - Dax says, "Are you mental?", that was brilliant.

True that, but Violet has the better stomach hands down.

It was an alright movie, one of the best parts was the motorcycle theme, but it wasn't nearly as good as equilibrium. I think it was a bit better than Aeon Flux though. I still don't get why her hair changed colors though...

..are you serious? I went to Ultra violet expecting a cool little action movie, by the time the movie hit the half way point, i was walking out. it was by far one of the worst movies i have seen in the past year at least. As for the roof scene, i couldn't comprehend why none of the thugs were smart enough to take the kid as a hostage.And then after that massacre (which was actually cool) the kid played his role as a retard brilliantly, and "V" acted like his mom to many times....

sorry for that rant but.... yea it was bad. The special effects couldnt save this film

I saw the commercial and thought to myself, Matrix + Underworld + Blade + Generic Gun & Run movie = $10 the movie theatres aren't getting from my wallet.

I was going to watch it in theatres...........then I realized that about 100% of the reviews I saw and the people I know who saw it said it was horrible.

So ya, I won't be making a conscious effort to watch this movie, thats for sure.

lol, it was at around 5% when it was released...


Yes, but we need more movies with Milla :O (5th Element anyone?)
Im guessing Milla is the main character in this movie? If so... then, damn, she was butt ugly in that movie. She looked like a dyke... a really fugly dyke.

Oh, btw, i'll be keeping my money and definately skipping this movie.... maybe go see X-men 3 or something.

I thought it looked very similar to Aeon Flux, and when I saw the trailer for *that* movie I thought it would suck but when I went to see it, it wasn't actually so bad. Unfortunatley, Ultraviolet was. Probably the worst movie i've seen this year.

Underworld, Aeon Flux, Ultraviolet, Evolution, Electra - it's like feminism is coming back in a monsoon of sub-par cinema.

I just saw the movie, and I've gotta say it's the most horrid monstrosity ever created. The only part I liked was where she was dodging all of the bullets, making them hit their own guys.

I thought it was an okay movie. The reason why I liked it was because of the effects. You don't see those much in movies these days. :(

Agreed. If the movie wasn't bright and shiny, it would have completely sucked.

The movie was very stylish. I've decided to like it to be counterculture because counterculture is cool, and everyone hates the movie.

You've "decided" to like it? Well, alright, but that must mean that before you went counterculture, you hated the movie alongside the rest of us.

Well, some friends saw it first, so I kinda went in there with a B-Rated movie attitude. Sure the plot was poopy, but I did dig the special effects, and their use of colors. Combat scenes weren't bad on the eyes either.
