Good Recommendation

I think this is a very awesome movie but more like sci-fi violence and pretty much mild language anyway it's good for viewers for teens over 13ish

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (5 ):

ULTRAVIOLET is incoherent even by the silly standards of other video game-based movies. According to Violet (Milla Jovovich), she lives in a future "you may not understand." But how could you, if nothing makes sense? Shot with HD cameras, the film looks bizarre, as if the entire surface has been scrubbed to resemble the soft filters and Vaselined lenses of old. It's an odd effect for the SF/action genre, but familiar to anyone who remembers Jovovich's Feria hair color commercials.

While Jovovich is an appealing model-turned-movie star, she's adrift here. By the last 15 minutes, it appears that whoever edited just gave up completely, and strung together a series of unrelated shots as an unresolved, hard-to-follow "finale."
