Ultraviolent Back to Blog
Please, if you were thinking about going to see Ultraviolent…save your money. You’ll be better off just waiting until it hits video in few weeks.
I was intrigued by the movie because I knew the heorine was a pseudo-vampire. But, not even my love of vamps could save this flick. Let me tell you why:
1. Back story dump. There is a HUGE back story dump at the beginning of this movie. After the heorine spent five minutes telling what was happening in her world, I thought, “Come again?”
2. The vampires aren’t fully explained. Yes, they became vampires after they got a virus, I got that. But…I needed more info. What would kill them? (It looked like almost anything could.) Did they age? Why were some stronger than others?
3. Effects were just too unbelieveable. The director was obviously green screen happy.
Normally, I like Milla Jovovich. She plays cool, kick-ass characters. And, well, her character in Ultraviolent definitely kicked ass…over and over again. One fight scene followed another and another and another.
If anyone out there is a fan of Milla’s, I’d recommend that you watch Resident Evil instead of her current release. Resident Evil has the high kick-ass factor, without the I’m-Too-Bored-Please-End-Now feeling.Tweet It
