|Classic sci-fi plot, but poorly executed. There are just too many lame passages and a lot of the scenes just makes you want to switch the channel.
Milla Jovovich is quite hot, but a bit too Hollywood-skinny for my taste, in this movie. Her acting is poor, but my guess is that it is a result of poor writing.
There is no blood and gore despite numerous kills by both sword and gunshot. This seemed a bit odd to me, but I guess it is a part of the movie's overall graphic style theme. Instead swords and armour are cracking and crumbling under impact during combat. That part is quite unrealistic but a really nice visual effect.
Violet's clothes and hair changes colour, shape and style several times. That part is cool done and allows us to see her in several pleasing outfits.
Generally the movie has a comic book feel about it, photo retouch of images, the cutting and the dialogues to name a few things, but it is not based on a comic book and was never made into a comic book afterwards despite numerous rumours.
Unless you are in love with Milla Jovovich or severely addicted to the lame vampire sci-fi genre, this movie is not worth watching.
