** Violet and Daxus both wield swords that look ''awesome'', but would be highly impractical in a real sword-fight. Violet's katana has a [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/File:Ultraviolet-Katana_02a.jpg square-edged "chisel" shape]], that would not only greatly reduce its ability to both cut and pierce, but also make it much more susceptible to breaking. Daxus' sword has [[http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/File:Ultraviolet-Katana_01a.jpg jagged teeth like a saw blade]], which would render it very unwieldy and actually hinder its ability to make clean cuts.

* PoisonAndCureGambit: Daxus plans to unleash a plague targeting humans, to which he has the cure. This is because hemophages are nearly extinct, and he needs a new plague to justify the Arch-Ministry's continued existence.

* NotUsingTheZWord: The movie only mentions the word "vampire" twice, first in the exposition dump when Violet notes that it's a slur used for hemophages, and a second time (in Vietnamese) when Violet is confronted by the Blood Chinois.

* NotUsingTheZWord: The movie only mentions the word "vampire" twice, thrice, first in the exposition dump when Violet notes that it's a slur used for hemophages, and a second time (in Vietnamese) when Violet is confronted by the Blood Chinois.Chinois. The third is towards the end, when Daxus points out she is one and so her helping a human child makes little sense.

* TranshumanTreachery: The hemophages. To be fair, the humans locked them in concentration camps, experimented on them, and tried to wipe them out.

to:

* TranshumanTreachery: The hemophages. To be fair, the humans locked them in concentration camps, experimented on them, and tried to wipe have almost wiped them out.


Added DiffLines:

* YouCanPanicNow: A ''big'' part of the setting is that the government and the media have made politicized the hemophage issue to increase their power, to the point of treating them as terrorists/monsters rather than sick people. [[spoiler:Daxus even has a cure, but is [[WithholdingTheCure withholding it]] to support the power of Archministry.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ZombieInfectee: Propaganda has led many to confuse "vampire" with "zombie" - in the first scene, a cop cuts his finger on a hemophage fang and is cold-bloodedly executed by his partner the instant it's noticed.

''Ultraviolet'' was deliberately created to stylistically resemble a comic book, with brilliantly colored outfits and hair, and an airbrushed appearance to close-ups. As with many comic books, the action scenes are deliberately over the top. It was not well-received, with a RottenTomatoes rating of 9%, but some find it SoBadItsGood or a GuiltyPleasure. It can now be streamed for free via a collaboration between Website/YouTube and the {{Creator/Hulu}} competitor [[http://www.crackle.com Crackle]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqpFXoo7o1Y here]] and [[http://www.crackle.com/c/Ultraviolet/Ultraviolet/2480344 here]], so you can watch it for yourself and make your own opinion.

* BloodlessCarnage: The movie isn't bloodless but the fight scenes are inexplicably clean, even when our heroine is pressing that nice sharp blade to mooks in spotless white clothing. What little blood does result is usually obscured by motion blur.
