Ultraviolet is a 2006 American science fiction/action film written and directed by Kurt Wimmer and produced by Screen Gems. It stars Milla Jovovich as Violet Song jat Shariff and Cameron Bright as Six. It was released in North America on March 3, 2006. The film was released onto DVD and Blu-ray Disc on June 27, 2006.
The film uses the basic premise of John Cassavetes's 1980 cult classic, Gloria, about a woman and a young boy on the run from the mafia, and transposes the story to a dystopian futuristic setting where genetically enhanced mutants are fighting a guerrilla war against a totalitarian government dictatorship. Many comparisons have been made between Ultraviolet and Equilibrium, Wimmer's previous film.
A novelization of the film was written by Yvonne Navarro, with more back-story and character development. The novelization also differs from the film in a number of ways, including a more ambiguous ending and the removal of some of the more improbable plot twists. An anime derivation entitled Ultraviolet: Code 044 was released by the Japanese anime satellite television network Animax, and animated by Madhouse.
Ultraviolet takes place in the year 2078, in the years following a global pandemic of a blood-borne, highly infectious disease known as hemoglophagia. Those afflicted with the disease are referred to as "hemophages". The disease kills the infected within twelve years, but also gives them super-human abilities as well as elongated fang-like canine teeth, leading the media to call them vampires. Fear overwhelmed the population and led to the rise of the Archministry, a militant medical establishment which took control of the government and began rounding up and exterminating all infected citizens in order to contain the virus.
