Aeon Flux back to product details

Nice Visuals

A box-office disaster of major proportions, the Hollywood/German AEON FLUX is certainly an oddity. Cast quite well and interestingly (Charlize Theron, Sophie Okonedo ("Hotel Rwanda"), Frances McDormand, Jonny Lee Miller, Pete Postlethwaite, Amelia Warner and the craggily handsome Marton Csokas), it is one of those rare sci-fi movies that captures the "future" amazingly well. In fact, you can almost be hypnotized by the visuals here.

Story-wise, it's more interesting and much less confusing than critics let on (one does sometimes wonder about their IQ-level). Written by several fellows but directed rather well by Karyn Kusama ("Girlfight"), the movie accomplishes what any decent action/sci-fi flick should: providing entertainment, bringing up a few worthwhile notions about life as we know it, and providing ample eye candy via its cast, costumes and sets. Although I know little about the movie's provenance (something to do with an MTV short?), "Aeon Flux" fills the bill quite nicely, while offereing a short running time so as not to outstay its welcome. It'll find its true audience on DVD.
