Of interest because it's being directed by Kurt Wimmer (of Equilibrium fame), otherwise though, it's looking incredibly cheesy. Should be fun...







Watch the trailer here

Oh, Milla Jovovich! Yummy! Smile

She looks better with blond or orange-red-like hair, though. Wink

I agree with the Cheesy and I agree with the hair.
It's just not the same when she's not saying "Chick-ahn! GOOD!" Or "Mooltipass"

Anyway. It does, in fact, look kind of fun. If only because it seems it's actually NOT a comic-book or cartoon adaptation (Ghasp! Horror!). And Milla looks as though she fits her role, a stark contrast to some OTHER films (yes, Æon Flux.) I've seen trailers for. Of course, the fact that Wimmer wrote the character FOR Jovovich helps.

I watched the trailer now. Looks like a lot of fun in a, yeah, cheesy kind of way. :)

She is soooo cute in this movie. OK, sure, she only was 22 or something in The Fifth Element...
In the trailer for Ultraviolet she looks much like 30, ...essentially because she now is. It really is a shame that all of my favourite movie stars from my youth turn older and older. Somebody really should do something about that! ;-)

I totally agree with that.

at least she doesn't slowly spin in place 360degrees holding a gun in each hand while shooting up a million solders *cough Æon Flux cough*



also the hologram car thing was cool




bottom line

action and trailer music is good but plot and dialog is bad


and if there is gunkata than it cant go wrong


EDIT spell checkis on the fritz cconnectingwords and rrepeatingthe first letters of words like this

Aeon Flux worth watching then? Not even been out over here...

Movie opinions aside, Charlize Theron can act, whereas Milla can't; not that it should matter much in this film, but then we should never settle for mediocrity.

*Ahem* 30 isn't old! That's when things start to get exciting. Monica Bellucci is in her 40s now, and she's absolutely gorgeous...

What? Milla can't act? Never noticed that! Very Happy

No, seriously, I saw some bad actresses: Diane Kruger, Tara Reid, Halle Berry, just to name some that came to my mind. It sometimes was quite embarrassing to even watch them trying to act. Twisted Evil
I never ever was embarrassed watching Milla. So it definitely can not be that bad.

Sure it is. At least in this context I wanted it to be. Smile
Hey, no offense or anything like that!

Maybe. (Too old for me, though. Wink)
Also, she is not one of the movie stars of my youth, so it's ok that she becomes old... But Milla! Please, not Milla!

Halle Berry

I know what you mean, there's a bit of a 'tv actress' about Halle, but I wouldn't say she's bad. In fact, Monster's Ball really showed she was capable given the right circumstances. If you think about it, she hasn't really had particularly good roles - Catwoman, Swordfish and Gothika Sad

Slyh wrote:

There's no maybe about it! Smile If she hasn't been in them, she's been in the top ten of just about every 'most gorgeous woman' poll that's ever been run in a trashy men's mag - not to mention the private poll I ran in my head Smile Plus, she's a fantastic actress - it's almost a shame she's filled all the 'wheel on the vamp' roles lately, because you tend to miss her ability to shame most actresses out of the door.

Still, if she's too old for you, that means there's more rampant totty for us real men* Wink



*Of course, she's married to the hugely talented Vincent Cassel, and I'm a loser, but I can always dream...

Ah man, if ever there was a chance to use Jack Nicolson's line in Batman here its her "She's about to trade up." Smile

And you didn't like Halley in Swordfish? I thought it was a decent popcorn movie. Never saw Gothica or Catwoman, but having seen the previews of Catwoman, I can relate to the tv actress comment.

I still think they should have made that spinoff after Batman Returns, with Pfieffer instead. Even if it sucked, I'd have probably seen it then.

Pfeiffer! Now THERE'S a catwoman. I think I wore my old VHS of Batman Returns down to next to nothing in certain places. Oh, the wonderdays of yore.

Halle Berry was the best thing in Swordfish, but that had nothing to do with her acting skills. Monster's Ball on the other hand shows she can do something other than look foxy.



Michelle Pfeiffer is a bit of a conundrum too - a brilliant actress (in my opinion) but almost every film she makes sucks...

I can't exactly say I've seen everything she's been in, but the last movie I enjoyed her work was in that thriller with Harrison Ford a few years back. It was spooky, and to top it off it was nice to see Ford in a not so good guy part for a change.

She has always been tainted after i realised she was in Grease2 *shudder*..arguably the worst film ever made. Worse than Iron Eagle 2.

Is that the one where they fire bazookas out of a propeller fighter to take jet fighters out?

Classic... Very Happy
