Violet herself as a character has some depth, but not quite deep enough, almost to the point where you sympathize with her, but you don't want to! The Story is flimsy and has many holes which obviously were not and could not be filled in by the conclusion (probably why this film is only 85 minutes long). Outside of Violet, NO other characters have depth and meaning, some just look pretty on screen, much like Milla.
Now comes my "Pros" of the film. 'Ultraviloet' had some amazing visuals and they managed to blend the live action and CGI very well, in fact I think they did an even better job than the 'Matrix Sequels' and the fact the film looked as though it were a moving comic book added to its charm. The action/martial arts were well above par for most American films of similar taste, and I must say, I am always impressed when it is pulled off and I think the film makers were successful there.
In my humble opinion, had they spent just 30 more days on the screenplay/story, it would have been MUCH better, but hindsight is 20/20 and they'll just have to remember that for next time.
OVERALL, 5.5 out 10 for Lack of story and Character Substance, but Visuals and SFX brought the score back up....My Advice, Wait till DVD or better yet, BARGAIN CINEMA! Director Kurt Wimmer has an eye for jackboot chic (Equilibrium), and the images here have been digitally polished so that the characters' skin is smoother than porcelain. It's a cool effect--I spent most of this interminable actioner wondering if one could bounce a quarter off Jovovich's bare midriff. Ultraviolet is based on a script written by American film-maker Kurt Wimmer (who also directed the movie). Wimmer has admitted to getting the idea for the movie from a 1980 movie that centers around a woman and young boy on the run from the Mafia. Viewers also suggest that Wimmer was inspired by comic books and mangas, since the opening credits is a montage of comic book covers. Ultraviolet was subsequently novelized in 2006 by American author Yvonne Navarro. The song with the female vocal is "24" by Jem. Gun Kata is a fictional martial art, combining statistical analysis and gunplay, to fight many adversaries at the same time, even when vastly outnumbered. Violet uses Gun Kata when fighting guards throughout the movie. For additional information, see the trivia section here for Wimmer's earlier movie, Equilibrium (2002) (2002). Her hair and clothes change colour to suit her mood during different scenes. Even though that most of the new scenes in the unrated version are mere extended plot sequences
