Kali in the Movies: Ultraviolet

Featured arts: Hard to say precisely – likely some kali influence. But the film also features a fire sword duel, one of which is a burmese dha with square nose. Unusual but a nice touch.

Overview: Set in the late 21st century, a subculture of humans have emerged who have been modified genetically by a vampire-like disease (hemophagia), giving them enhanced speed, incredible stamina and acute intelligence. As they are set apart from “normal, healthy” humans, the world is pushed to the brink of worldwide civil war… Milla Jovavich again, only this time vampires instead of zombies. Do you detect a pattern?

Rating: 6.3 (of 10) – Some interesting scenes but still not much better than a B-film. And seriously lacking any conceptual or character development. Why does Hollywood need to kill decent sci-fi with its forumlae?
