Plot: In the late 21st century, a subculture of humans have emerged who have been modified genetically by a vampire-like disease, giving them enhanced speed, strength and intelligence, and because they are set apart from ordinary "healthy" humans, societal riffs push the world to the brink of worldwide civil war between the human government and the enhanced diseased populace. Caught in the middle is one such infected woman, Violet (Jovovich), who finds herself protecting a nine-year-old boy, Six (Bright), who has been marked for death.

"Ultraviolet took twenty years off my life."- Kurt Wimmer

Kurt Wimmer impressed sci-fi and action fans with the sci-fi action film Equilibrium. Equilibrium was little seen in theaters due to Dimension Films poor treatment, but the film found an audience on DVD and a web site was born that takes a look at Equilibrium and Wimmer's next film, Ultraviolet. Reviews from test screenings suggest that the action sequences in Ultraviolet are just as good as the ones in Equilibrium. Also having Milla Jovovich starring in Ultraviolet is a plus. Milla has also starred in both Resident Evil films and The Fifth Element. Given the push behind Ultraviolet, it will be easy for the movie to gain a following and make more money than Equilibrium ever did. Rumor has it that the studio has pulled Wimmer from editing the film and they're making cuts to his PG-13 cut. Despite how good or bad the script or final cut of the movie, the action scenes are having sci-fi fans buzzing.

"Milla is unbelievable. She has an inner torque, she is a super hero. I don't think anyone could have played her part better than she did, she was unbelievable, just like in Joan Of Arc," William Fichtner comments on working with Milla on Ultraviolet.
