Ultraviolet Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil), Cameron Bright (X-Men 3), Nick Chinlund (The Legend of Zorro) and William Fichtner (The Longest Yard) star in this story of a woman caught in a futuristic civil war between the government and a subculture of disease modified humans in whom speed, strength and intelligence are magnified. In the film, she must fend off the human government to protect a young boy who has been marked for death.

For more about Ultraviolet and the Ultraviolet Blu-ray release, see Ultraviolet Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Ultraviolet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Ultraviolet shoots its way onto the Bluray format in a 1080p/MPEG-2 encode, framed at a 1:85:1 aspect ratio. This film looks about as good as a computer generated creation is going to look. Shot entirely using Sony's HDW-F900 digital cameras, the film has an extremely digital look via significant post production processing which gives the film a quite "cartoonish" look overall. It started off with a very colorful beginning, which had me thinking this was going to be an awesome movie to look at. Then I got to the feature, and to my surprise I found this movie to be quite ugly to look at. Let's start with the good side of the picture quality (and yes there is one). The source is pristine and free from any film based anomalies, such as dirt, pops and film based blemishes. Colors are ultra vivid, with profound use of the primary and secondary colors but lacks any hues. The colors pop and are so pumped up; images can look a little gaudy and garish. There was absolutely no attempt to create wide, natural color palette for this film. There is no grain, so one can assume there was no film elements used to encode this flick, as it looks like it is from a direct digital transfer. There is no sign of DNR or edge enhancement which is surprising for such digitally manipulated images. Now to the bad, and there is plenty of that. First, all of the texture and detail has been dialed out of the faces of all of the characters, giving them an animation look much like you see in Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. I was blown away with the look of that movie as its was animation was made to look photo realistic, and it was successful at doing it. This film goes the other direction, making live characters look like animated characters, which is not natural to the eyes, or the brain. While the detail was dialed out of face, there is plenty of detail in everything else which makes the overall picture quality a little weird and inconsistent. The contrast is blown out at the top and bottom of its range, which is not a problem in and of itself, but combine that with edginess around highly contrasted objects, and you get an artificial quality that looks just ugly. Blacks were very deep and inky, so much so it killed shadow detail in some scenes. I also noticed some pixilation and color banding in some shots as well. Another thing I saw over and over is some aliasing or shimmering happening in the detail of Violets hair. I am torn on whether to just ding the hell out of the picture quality, or judge it solely on the effect I think the director was trying to put on the screen. Since the director approved this transfer, and the studio released it the way it is, I am leaning towards the latter rather than the former.

Ultraviolet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sony gives Ultraviolet an excellent English uncompressed 5.1 PCM track that is aggressive as hell to say the least. It has excellent dynamic range and an ultra wide frequency response as well. Bass and deep bass is especially pronounced, with deep bass found not only in the main front channels and LFE down to 25hz (lower in the LFE in some instances) at high levels, and down to 50hz in the surrounds at extremely high levels as well. It is balanced in a way that allows you to turn up the volume without introducing nasty shrillness at high levels. Directional pans are smooth, tight and highly effective, and we are always awash in scene to scene ambience via the surround channels. Overall, the soundfield is nicely layered, and extends all the way to my front wall depth wise. If your speakers are of very high resolution, you can hear the different elements of the mix (Dialog, music and sound effects) change positioning within that layer based on the priority the re-recording mixer wants to sonically emphasize in relationship to the visuals. Klaus Badelt film score is very well recorded and has a smooth and extended high end, smooth and uncolored midrange, and presents a good workout to your sub via a chest pounding techno drums which message the skin, and occasional makes you feel like you are getting kicked in the abdomen with its power. This soundtrack is never anything less than over the top, but boy what a sonic ride it gives you. A word of warning; this soundtrack can be system threatening at very high levels in some scenes, so you do have to watch your volume levels if your sub is not up to the challenge.
