This movie set back female action hero movies by at least a decade. Gods, it is awful. It can be fully blamed on directed Kurt Wimmer’s head for how bad this movie is – so bad, he cannot get another directing gig and hope that all the studios continue that ban.
Truly, nothing is redeemable. It ruined how cool a flaming sword could have been. The dialogue is unreal bad, the graphics is worse than most poorly made videogames, the editing is harsh, the action was… well… probably the best part of the movie but that isn’t saying much.
I do recommend Equilibrium (2002), the movie Kurt did before this one. You can see how some people (like me) had held out hope for Ultraviolet.
