No press screenings? Who cares?

Kurt "Equilibrium" Wimmer's new sci-fi gun-kata flic, Ultraviolet, starring Milla Jovovich, opens tomorrow. And B.W. Richardson reports that the movie wasn't prescreened by critics, "usually a sign that they think the critics will hate it, which usually happens because a film is not that good." Aw, c'mon, B.W., do we really care what Michael Medved thinks? Besides, this is Milla Jovovich, fer crissakes! And Ultraviolet looks like a freakin' recruiting film for the Revolutionary Agorist Cadre! Bring it on!

Well, hey, I said I'm "curiously anticipatory." Not all non-prescreened movies are dogs, and I have a feeling about this one.

Alas, from the previews online, this movie does look like a dog. I'll probably watch it on DVD, though.

Gee, Anders, I think the trailer looks FABULOUS. Very exciting stunt sequences, good looking set design, and plenty of gun-kata...an amped up Equilibrium. But then, I don't expect this is to everyone's taste.

Looks like your review summed it up well. All flash and style, which buried anything or anyone you might want to cheer for amid all the action. Like you said, a renter. Hoping V for Vendetta lives up to expectations.
