Last night, rlyconfused got the urge to see Ultraviolet. He rounded up the usual suspects minus BEG. The follower that I am, I went along with them despite my incredible hesitance to see something I knew was going to be bad. Boy was I wrong.
I know Milla Jovovich is a decent actress since The Fifth Element is one of my favorite movies. But wow, and I thought the Resident Evil films were worse. The main draw I had to see it was that it was directed by Kurt Wimmer, the same man responsible for the incredibly cool Equilibrium. I don’t know what he did to make Ultraviolet bad, but everything was horrible. After the kid was introduced, I was this close to actually walking out of the theater. The only thing that stopped me was the certainty that I wasn’t going to get my money back and that walking out would be a waste of the $7.75 that I paid to see it.
The special effects weren’t good. The action scenes weren’t good, especially the final scene with the Equilibrium-style gunbattle knock-off. The story wasn’t even good either. I don’t know what else to say. This might just be one of the worst movies that I have ever seen. I knew it was going to be bad, not THAT bad.

Rlyconfused, I want my money back!
