(2006)

The blood war is on.

http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/ultraviolet/

In the late 21st century, a subculture of humans have emerged who have been modified genetically by a vampire-like disease, giving them enhanced speed, incredible stamina and acute intelligence. As they are set apart from "normal" and "healthy" humans, the world is pushed to the brink of worldwide civil war aimed at the destruction of the "diseased" population. In the middle of this crossed-fire is - an infected woman - Ultraviolet, who finds herself protecting a nine-year-old boy who has been marked for death by the human government as he is believed to be a threat to humans.

Good watch, could watch again, and can recommend.
This is certainly something different. It's a different approach to vampires (hemophages), it's a different approach to sci-fi, and it's a different approach to corporate dystopia. Oddly, the Umbrella Corporation from "Resident Evil" is the closest of which I can think.
Milla Jovovich is entirely capable of performing high action sequences, and carrying the movie, which she does wonderfully. I don't doubt that she has some pull in the production process, but the problems in this are mostly the weak character work and the "I have this really cool idea I'd like to do on screen, it'll be totally different than anything else out there." of it all.
Some of it (nose plugs) are actively distracting, and other things are just odd choices (squared off sword), while there are cool concepts (dimensionally printed weapons), and scenes that just look cool even if they're not especially practical or sensisble (swords on fire in the dark).
My only personal gripes are day walking vampires, weird foley sounds for the guns (most are right, but it is hard to tell on made up guns), and why in the hell people with guns would charge someone instead of firing.
I think this movie holds up as good as it did when it was released, and I have a good time re-watching it.
