Our Score
Director Kurt Wimmer follows up the bonkers-but-stylish Matrix cash-in Equilibrium with another futuristic action thriller - think Aeonflux meets Underworld. Set at the end of the 21st century, the film depicts a world in which a botched biological weapons experiment has created a subclass of vampiric humans that the totalitarian government is now trying to wipe out. At least one of these mutants, Violet (Milla Jovovich), is determined not to go down without a fight. However, the plot is mainly an excuse for the Resident Evil star to wipe out a ludicrous number of baddies in a series of form-hugging costumes. Nick Chinlund hams it up dreadfully as the villain of the piece, while youngster Cameron Bright (so good in Birth) doesn't have much to do except pout as the mysterious boy that Jovovich ends up protecting. Wimmer's hyper-stylised direction aims for a manga feel but that just makes it look even more like a shoot-'em-up computer game.


A totalitarian regime in 2076 sets out to destroy a sub-species of vampiric mutants and take over the world. However, one of the vampires discovers a boy whose unique blood antigens hold the key to curing her kind - and risks her own safety to protect the child from government agents determined to kill him. Sci-fi thriller, starring Milla Jovovich, Cameron Bright and Nick Chinlund.
