First Trip to Theatre Since October...

Well, went and saw the flick Ultraviolet today...and it was ok. You pretty much know what you're getting with a movie like this, so to expect more is expecting too much. I really liked the morphing comic book covers used to show the opening credits. I thought it was a fun, colorful, action movie with a good enough plot to keep you more or less interested. The action scenes were done well, though like I read somewhere else, Kill Bill did some similar action better. Milla Jovovich's Violet and the Lab guy Garth were the most interesting. There was obviously something there between the characters - shame they didn't explore it more.

It was a fun movie, although its nothing that's going to stick with you after. Knowing that it was originally meant to be R, and was downgraded to PG-13, I couldn't help thinking while I watched the movie that there was probably a much better movie lying somewhere on a cutting room floor...

I thought Aeon Flux was a better movie (in comparing similar movies anwyay)... was easier to follow and had more character relationships and plot than Ultraviolence... oops, I mean Ultraviolet. :-)

It was fun to watch, but nothing to write home about.

yeah, that sums it up. fun, but forgettable. I'm waiting for the DVD of Aeon Flux, then I'll be able to compare the two...
