** 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.
