Well, we finally got around to seeing Ultraviolet. Not what I expected at all. It had cool scenes, action-packed sequences, amazing special effects...but it was weird. Really weird. Aeon Flux weird. One of those futuristic movies that didn't even pretend to be realistic. Things you should know that will make this movie less confusing: a) in the future, they perfected the technology of putting big things into little spaces, and b) Violet is a vampire. But even knowing that, there were parts of the movie that made me go "huh?" Still, there were some amazing action sequences for a PG-13. She kills a lot of people. But there's no blood, so it's okay...right. I could tell they cut stuff out, so there will most likely be an unrated DVD. And they should pay royalties to Kill Bill, because that was an obvious influence. But I can't be that hard on it because it delivered lots of action, some jaw-dropping scenes, and Milla Jovovich lookin' hot. It'll probably make more sense on the second viewing.
This movie got creamed on Rotten Tomatoes, but Scifi.com gave (I think) the fairest review.
