Ultraviolet (film)/YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

These things about Ultraviolet (film) are subjective - not everyone will agree with all of them.

  • Anvilicious: The awfulness in the systematic discrimination and rounding up of the hemophages is hammered on in one particular scene where a family of hemophages is seen dressed up as Hasidic Jews, complete with biohazard patches.
  • Non Sequitur Scene: The Blood Chinois. They are a random Asian gang that randomly appear in the movie, have no apparent motive and backstory besides "You're in our territory", set up a ridiculous action scene, and are never mentioned again.
  • Fight Scene Failure: whilst Storming the Castle, Violet faces one room full of Mooks in pure white NBC gear, which just makes the Bloodless Carnage all the more blatant. Combined with relatively tame choreography, this fight is a particular low point in the film.
    • The duel between Violet and Daxus has its problems too. The idea is So Cool Its Awesome—a Sword Fight in total darkness, lit only by the fact that the swords are on fire—but, because they actually filmed it straight, without employing Hollywood Darkness, you can't make much sense of what's going on.
    • The final fight with The Blood Chinois is one too. Its more or less the same shot over and over.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Milla herself is the reason many caught the movie.
  • Moral Event Horizon: The Ministry deliberately terminated Violet's pregnancy. She doesn't know this. Neither does the audience.
    • It's blink and you won't hear it moment on the soundtrack - when she escapes with the "package", a voice identifies her as "a plague victim whose pregnancy was forcibly terminated..."
  • So Bad It's Good: A Guilty Pleasure for many.
  • Special Effects Failure: the CGI was decent for its time, but it doesn't particularly hold up today.
