Ultraviolet is a 2006 science fiction action flick featuring Milla Jovovich as the lead actress, produced by Screen Gems, and both written and directed by Kurt Wimmer. The film is set in year 2078, where a disease has caused people to develop vampiric abilities, including preternatural strength and pronounced fangs. These "hemophages," are also known to have a reduced lifespan of only twelve years. A group called The Archministry is established to combat them hemophages. Led by Vice-Cardinal Ferdinand Daxus, the organization gains control of the government and uses its authority to corral the infected. Once quarantined, the Archministry then eradicates them before the virus can fully manifest. The heroine of the film, Violet Song (played by Jovovich), is a hemophage as well as a resistance fighter protecting the hemophages from the Archministry. During a resistance mission, Violet liberates what she believes to be the ultimate anti-hemophage weapon , only to find a boy named Six. Sensing that this child could generate a cure to the hemophage virus by reverse-engineering anti-hemophage antigens within his body, Violet leaves with Six in tow, hoping to create the cure before the antigens destroy him. Later on, Violet encounters Daxus, whom reveals that Six is actually Violet's son. Refusing this, Violet contacts her friend Garth, whom explains that Six lacks hemophage antigens and is actually radioactive. These radiation levels are high enough that Six can easily be tracked and that it has now reduced Six's life to a mere eight hours. During this time, another member, Nerva, explains that Six's antigens are actually deadly to humans. Daxus contacts Violet again, explaining that Six is actually his clone, a ruse to earn Violet's sympathies. As the hemophages are nearly extinct, the Archministry plans to create a new plague to maintain its power. When Daxus refuses to give Violet the cure, she leaves with Six. Believing Six's life to be nearly at its end, Violet detours for a children's playground, allowing the boy a time to play before dying. Daxus soon comes and claims the boy's body for dissection. Eventually, Violet realizes that Six may not have actually died. Emboldened, she breaches the Archministry's complex and reaches a dissection chamber just as Daxus is about to begin work on Six. During this final battle, Daxus reveals that he used the hemophage virus on himself to aid his rise to power. Violet kills him, leaving with Six's body. Six revives thanks to the immunization of Violet's tears. Violet theorizes that Six could use his knowledge to cure for Violet and the remaining hemophages.
