    A film to be enjoyed only by science-fiction movie completists and middle school boys with extreme cases of attention deficit disorder. show more

    Ultraviolet, unscreened for critics, is unfit for consumption. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    The latest entry in the "This film is so bad we're not screening it for critics" genre. show more

    Amid every action cliche in the book, outmoded stereotypes, and a plot derivative of every futuristic drama made in the last fifteen years, Ultraviolet comes off as nothing more than a pale copy of better, more inventive films. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    An all-but-incoherent mess whose main components are palpably fake-looking CGI effects, video-game-style action sequences and Milla Jovovich's admirably taut abdomen, Kurt Wimmer's film epitomizes just about everything wrong with post-MATRIX, comic book-/video-game-inspired, Hong Kong-action-style sci-fi thrillers. show more

    Jovovich is bad, and not in a good way. She turns in an epically expressionless performance (maybe she thought it was one of her modeling gigs?) but she sure looks great. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    This is another one of those pointless action superhero movies that unfolds like a video game in which the viewer is unable to participate. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    A cut-rate ripoff of "Aeon Flux" with Milla Jovovich as a butt-kicking futuristic heroine in a midriff-baring bodysuit, is ultrastupid, ultra-incoherent, ultrasilly - and way, way ultraboring. show more

    Although it looks cool, appearances aren’t everything. show more

    Unengaging, uninspired and unwatchable. A criminal waste of time and talent. show more
