    Anyone see the commercials for this? I saw it for the first time tonight and was impressed. It looked pretty damn cool if I can say so myself. Is anybody else going to go see it when it comes out?

  • It's directed by Kurt Wimmer, the director of Equilibrium, so it definitely sparks interest right there. The commercial looked pretty cool also. I'll go and see this when it comes out.

  • It looks like this movie is in its last days at the theaters because it's showing only at night now. This movie's plot sounded the most appealing to me of any movies now playing, which is why I chose this one to see this weekend.

    It looks like this movie originated from comic books, given the comic book stills with Japanese terms in the opening credits. Since I am almost completely unfamiliar with modern comic books, though, I simply don't know.

    This is yet another film with dazzling computer graphics effects, acrobatic karate fights and acrobatic sword fights, with a sole person continually slaying unlimited numbers of bad guys in the style of "The Matrix", "Kill Bill", "V for Vendetta", "Hero", "The Chronicles of Riddick", and endless others. My main complaint about such modern effects is that they too often depict actions that defy the laws of physics, such as causing a sidewalk to crack when jumping down on top of it, running upside down on a ceiling, dodging bullets in real time, and so on. Maybe viewers are supposed to accept such impossible feats because the story is based on a comic book, but such things still bother me.

    This futuristic story is presented so as to sympathize with the revolutionaries living outside the city, who are trying to overthrow the totalitarian human regime inside, but the revolutionaries are few in number and are dying out. The revolutionaries are called Hemophages (Greek for "Bloodeaters"), which are basically vampires. The main character is a female assassin vampire played by Milla Jovovich. Milla looks great as usual, and there's even a darkened nude scene of her as she walks through a security tunnel.

    For my taste the film was not particularly novel, and used too many overused modern themes: the child in danger, the modern evil totalitarian government that needs to be destroyed, dazzling but impossible computer graphics battles, impossible hologram projectors, vampires, and so on. But other than that, the story was pretty solid and visually impressive.

    Overall, I'd say it was decent, especially if you like Milla or large-scale high-speed sword fights. When leaving the theater I heard a guy behind me remark to his girlfriend, "I feel like I just sat through a 2-hour video game." I'd say that sums it up pretty well.

  • For one, this is not based on a comic book, at least from the info I've gathered, although it does appear to be an homage to the comics a la M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable. Anyway, I'm probably one of the very few people that really liked this flick, and probably the main reason why is because of Kurt Wimmer's first directorial effort: the astounding Equilibrium. If you haven't seen it, simnia, I admvise you do so, and perhaps you'll like the movie even more. While I can't say I really cared for the "child in danger" thing and a few other elements of Ultraviolet, I found it to be a quite enjoyable, bizarre little take on a future world, with some amazing fight sequences...and the lovely Mila Jovovich doesn't hurt a bit either.

    I saw it in 2003. That's another reason I said the theme of evil totalitarium future governments is very common nowadays. My complaint about the plot for "Equilibrium" is that it would be self-defeating for any government to ban emotions, so I didn't consider it a realistic plot. Without emotions people would not feel ambition, pride, fear, patriotism, or family ties, which are largely the only things supporting government nowadays.

    I'd say that's about right. I have a hard time remembering anything I saw from the movie "Aeon Flux", which I saw in a theater not too many months ago, so for some reason it was a very forgettable movie and plot for me! But yeah, the female hero, CGI battles, and futuristic settings would all be similar in nature between the two movies, I think.
