Ultraviolet - Milla Jovovich (2006) - Convention Avenue, Wanchai

Although shot in 2004 in Shanghai and Hong Kong, the film wasn't released until 2006 and it was received so badly it effectively ended Kurt Wimmer's directing career (even though it appears to have eventually broken even). It's a big shame because because the film contains some decent action set pieces.

Sadly there are only a few scenes shot in HK. it seems most was done in Shanghai or computer generated but we get to see a few recognisable places. The first of which is along Convention Avenue in Wanchai as the opening sequence goes through its story preamble. The wall on the right belongs to the Renaissance Harbourview Hotel.
