In the late 21st a disease called Hemophagia has genetically modified nearly an entire race of people, leaving them with such enhanced speed, intelligence, and strength that they resemble vampires in nearly every way. Fear begins to breed within the power elite as the disease continues to spread and those infected prove to be truly superhuman, and now, a civil war is brewing between uninfected humans and those altered by Hemophagia.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The most receptive audience will mainly be enlightened to know that you can make a movie as thoroughly unprofessional as this one and still get it released in 3,000 theaters."
‑ Rob Nelson, Village Voice
‑ Philip Wuntch, Dallas Morning News
"The repetition of the action scenes play like an avant-garde joke about the indistinguishable nature of Hollywood fight scenes. Think Warhol's soup cans, only with actors posing with swords."
‑ Adam Lippe, Examiner.com
"Really, you can't blame Ms. Jovovich."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
"Some spectacular action, though obviously digital: free of risk, free of drama."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Despite the expository speeches draped over this like birthday bunting, the story remains largely incomprehensible."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Wimmer borrows all his best ideas from other movies...then spackles over his half-assed plot with a shiny aesthetic."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"Woefully nonsensical from start to finish..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Undemanding, unengaging, and glaringly unoriginal, Ultraviolet gives real comic books a bad name."
‑ Anton Bitel, musicOMH.com
"Lordy mama, the thing's just unspeakable."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Derivative, adolescent tosh."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Crank your brain to its lowest possible idle and you'll still overthink Ultraviolet."
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"One of the worst movies of 2006 so far."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The narrative is so jumbled that even the actors can't seem to keep track of what exactly is meant to be happening."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"Unengaging, uninspired and unwatchable. A criminal waste of time and talent."
‑ James Dyer, Empire Magazine
