This week’s Darer: Marco Cabodi

Why did Marco dare Daniel and Corky to watch Ultraviolet“Nonsensical Milla Jovovich action vehicle that alternates between incredibly ambitious and incomprehensibly stupid.  It’s an amazing mix of everything being almost not as awful as it is.  It’s admirably unwatchable.”

IMDB synopsis: “A beautiful hæmophage infected with a virus that gives her superhuman powers has to protect a boy in a futuristic world, who is thought to be carrying antigens that would destroy all hæmophages.”
