Public Service Announcement

This is my good deed for the day.

Do not, for any amount of money, go see Ultraviolet.

It is a terrible movie. I cannot for the life of me, remember seeing such a terrible movie in the theatre before. I think that the last movie I saw that was that bad was Rollerball. Even then, I still think Ultraviolet is the worse movie.

If you desperately feel the need to see this movie, rent it at home and then fast-forward through the talking parts.

I have never before been in a movie where people walked out with only 15 minutes left. I could hear people in the rest of the audience saying things like "this stinks" and "this movie sucks."

It was so disappointing. I do like action movies, and I could see how Ultraviolet was trying to umm, emulate their sucess. I liked all three Blade movies, and also liked the Kill Bills. I haven't yet seen Aeon Flux, the movie, but I did see some of the shorts. However, as much as I appreciated the comments on the potential future, I could not get over everything else that was terrible with the movie. I'm a huge fan of futuristic fiction, and I love seeing different views of how the current trend of globalization could end up, but this was... unfortunate.

The CGI was well done, and I know Glen Fiddich liked what they did with her face, but I hated it. The wierd filtering they did on it made it difficult for her to show any emotion at all. Which could be the reason for the terribly overdone acting poor Milla did.

Anyway, bottom line? Save the hour and a half of your life that you will never, ever get back if you watch this movie.

If only I had read your post BEFORE I went to see this movie! I will never get that time back... at least as a guy I could appreciate Milla in tight leather pants! :-)
