Ultraviolet opens Friday

I don't know what it is, but I'm curiously anticipatory about the opening Friday of the Kurt Wimmer film Ultraviolet with Milla Jovovich .

OK, yes, I know what it is; it's that poster that Wally Conger posted when he wrote about the movie a couple of weeks ago under the title "A new libertarian heroine?"

Set in the late 21st century, Ultraviolet is about a growing civil war between “normal” humans and genetically-modified humans. Jovovich plays the title character, who finds herself protecting a kid who’s been marked for death by the government.

What I'm seeing today is that the film was not made available to be prescreened by critics, which is usually a sign that they think the critics will hate it, which usually happens because a film is not that good. But maybe it's a pretty decent flick that will benefit from our lowered expectations. Hard to say. But I'm curiously anticipatory. At least it will keep us preoccupied while we're waiting for V for Vendetta March 17.

No screenings? Not that good? Who cares? It's Milla doin' gun-kata!
