"The Blood War is On
"A beautiful hemophage infected with a virus that gives her superhuman powers has to protect a boy in a futuristic world, who is thought to be carrying antigens that would destroy all hemophages.
Hot body, not much else going on
Ultraviolet was embarrassingly terrible on so many levels. My husband
and I usually really dig the comic book and action movies, so I think
that our expectations were reasonable for the genre. The kinds of
movies that Ultraviolet tried to channel were X-Men, The Matrix and
Underworld. Unfortunately, this movie failed to do so.
1) Dialogue was laughably bad. One of Milla's lines was actually
"Because these beautiful moments turn evil when they're over." What??
This was regarding a romantic pass made at her. Totally incongruous
with the setting. 2) Excessive use of CGI is a personal irritant.
Additionally, the motorcycle chase scenes were only one step above
TRON. I might as well have been watching my 11 year old neighbors play
some video game. 3) Zero character development. I didn't care about
Violet, the french guy, the scientist guy, the pretty boy, or the evil
nose filter guy. I didn't care about their individual goals (mainly
because they weren't very clear). I didn't care about characters dying,
and I didn't care about the revelation at the end; the only indicator
that I had that it was important was her somewhat awed reaction.
To be fair, Milla Jovovich has an incredible face and body and is
well-suited for fight scenes. If all-CGI, all-the-time is your thing,
then you'll be thrilled with the loads of glossed-over fight scenes
involving Milla and hordes of green screen baddies. If you're like our
entire theater, you're bored. Really, fake fights just don't impress
