Top 10 Milla Jovovich Movies

Top 10 Best Milla Jovovich Movies (List) - With ClipsModel. Musician. Singer. Artist. Fashion Designer. Actor. And occasionally topless. These are all the things that Milla Jovovich and I have in common. Since I saw her in Resident Evil, this multi-talented lady has always been my favourite actress. I’m not sure if it’s her distinct and cute voice, her underrated acting chops or the fact that she’s just stunning but I always look forward to whatever she’s doing next. I’m a fan. With several movies of hers coming out this year (including The Three Musketeers in 3D no less) I thought now would be the perfect opportunity to PROCLAIM MY LOVE… of her work with you all. These are the top 10 best Milla Jovovich movies. Enjoy!

10. Ultraviolet (2006)

Ultraviolet sees Milla J as “Violet”, a quasi-vampire sword-and-gun-wielding motorbike-riding badass sworn to fight a government that wants to cull the vampire population while protecting a boy who is the key to vampirific salvation. What more could you ask for? Well, how about a studio who doesn’t fudge up the director’s vision to get a lower age rating? Much to the chagrin of director Kurt Wimmer (who’s responsible for the excellent Equilibrium) and Ms. Jovovich herself, that is exactly what happened and the critics responded likewise. Still, it’s Milla doing what she does best and visually it looks spectacular on Blu-ray – and that’s just her cat suit.

9. Zoolander (2001)

We all know and love Zoolander – a film that has become a cult phenomenon despite poor box-office takings. If for some reason you haven’t seen this film but read Movie Moron, like Slash in South Park, you probably don’t exist. Zoolander is the tale of airhead model “Derek Zoolander” (Ben Stiller) who contends with being overtaken by “young” upstart “Hansel” (Owen Wilson) while also being the target of nefarious fashion designer “Mugatu” (Will Ferrell). Milla has a small but memorable role as Mugatu’s henchwoman, “Katinka Ingabogovinanana” – a sneering, Russian dominatrix who thrives on just being deliciously evil. No doubt, Milla probably took some inspiration for the character from her days as a model too. That Milla – she’s so hot right now!

8. You Stupid Man

With the exception of a Russian a film that I’m going to have trouble downlo- I mean, attaining a region-free DVD copy of… in English, Milla’s only attempt at Rom-Com fare comes in the shape of 2002’s You Stupid Man, helmed by writer/producer Brian Burns of Entourage fame. The film is about a love triangle which forms between “Owen” (David Krumholtz), his former girlfriend who cheated on him “Chloe” (Denise Richards) and his new love interest “Nadine” (played by Milla J). Yes, the idea of the guy from Numbers getting anywhere near EITHER of these two ladies seems like a stretch BUT his chemistry with Milla in this film makes it believable. Jovovich is charming as Nadine, somehow forgiving all of Owen’s misdemeanours while the audience collectively face-palm his longing for the clearly inferior Chloe. Milla if you’re reading this, do more romantic comedies – they suit you. And also, call me.

7. The Million Dollar Hotel (2000)

Written by Bono, music from U2, produced by Mel Gibson and directed by Wim Wenders – somehow it shouldn’t have failed! The Million Dollar Hotel is a tragi-comic story about the apparent suicide of “Tom-Tom” (Jeremy Davies) after he is suspected of murdering a resident at the eponymous hotel by “Agent Skinner” (Mel Gibson). For whatever reason it did fail, beneath the issue (read: pacing) is an assured performance from Mi-Jo as “Eloise”, a prostitute with mental ticks who is the centre of affection for “Tom-Tom”. A sweet and naïve relationship develops between the two as the tension (eventually) ramps up towards the tragic ending. Sounds like the plot of every one of my romantic relationships so far. Including murdering Tim Roth.

6. Stone (2010)

A film about manipulation, Stone features Milla as “Lucetta”, a conniving temptress who seduces a parole officer (played by Robert De Niro) for the acceptance of her equally calculating convict husband “Stone” (Edward Norton). What could have been a physiological thriller ends up being a plodding drama in the hands of John Curran. But the constant highpoints are always Milla’s scenes where she’s entirely watchable as the femme fatale that ultimately dooms De Niro’s character. Like De Niro, I also believe that Milla is a woman worth going to prison for.

    Faces in the Crowd is a pretty good thriller with an interesting premise. She plays someone suffering from face blindness trying to identify a serial killer.

      Has it been released in the UK? Did you see it? Looks like it went straight to DVD in the US.

    I haven’t watched Ultraviolet but from what footage I’ve seen it looks like an idea that’s not fully formed, like it needed another few drafts. The outdoor action is so cg that it looks hard to get involved with. Loved Equilibrium though.

    Quite liked the first Resident Evil, once I got over the disappointment of it not being set in the mansion of the initial game. Milla was good it.

    If anyone here likes thrillers definitely check out A Perfect Getaway, it’s excellent. And Milla’s great in it. But don’t read any reviews or message boards first because knowing the ending will reduce enjoyment a lot.

    The Fifth Element has, well, elements that really work but the whole thing just doesn’t hang together. Milla’s performance was great and basically deserved a better movie with a more coherent story.

    And that’s the thing with her in general, she’s often better than the movies she’s in.

    But most importantly, Milla Jovovich is the cinematic queen of the slow-motion jump. Ever since since she went off that building in The Fifth Element no one has jumped as much or as slow as her, from the four movies of the Resident Evil series to The Three Musketeers to Ultraviolet she has totally owned gravity.

    Just rewatched Dummy and it’s a great little movie, very sweet and funny. She’s great in it.

    Ultraviolet is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. Period.

    Ultraviolet was a terrible, terrible movie, not one redeeming feature. I don’t really like whaling on a woman but shouldn’t this be a list of how/why did she get a part in any of these films? 😉

    Ouch Mr. Hawk! Ultraviolet is clearly a film that has been hacked to pieces by the studio simply to its disjointed and incoherent story but I included it here because visually its what we know Mi-Jo for : slow motion jumps, guns, martial arts and a damn cool bike sequence. Admittedly, The Fourth Kind might have been a better representation of her acting ability for the #10 spot but hindsight is a wonderful thing. I’m waiting for her to do more comedies!

    I wasn’t going to be happy if Fifth Element wasn’t #1. Well played Sir.

    I think the 4th kind deserves a place in top 10….
