What is it that drives talented actresses to dive into a hot pile of cinematic crap soon after winning their first Oscar?

Even Theron's sexy catsuit acrobatics can't prevent boredom from setting in as the film's unimaginative production design and dull dialogue take precedence.

One would have expected something this cheesy to go direct-to-video %u2014 or at most to Showtime, on late at night.

stodgy and listless futuristic thriller that only ever echoes other cinematic sci-fi tomorrows.

Between bouts of gun fights and acrobatics, "Aeon Flux" is a dreadfully boring and incomprehensible mess with a screenplay that constantly jumps between clunky to just plain embarrassing...

There isn't a hint of the actress who earned her Oscar for Monster in this blank performance.

a live-action feature that captures all too depressingly the original TV cartoon's evolution from inventive weirdfest to a more run-of-the-mill brand of dystopian cyberpunk.

A story that is both poorly conceived and badly told.

Between Charlize's skimpy, spandex outfits and the equally-sparse, angular modernistic architecture this readily digestible, if implausible sci-fi adventure is laced with enough surprises to keep you engaged throughout.

The 15-year-old MTV cartoon on which it is based must be better than this.

The camera drools over each titilating catfight and gazelle-like leap.

The telling of this story is rather dull and lifeless; the film is full of rote combat sequences and no real sense of danger or adventure.

A slick-looking action movie with too much exposition and a weighty, pretentious tone.

Slick, sexy, and incredibly stupid.

A high-octane, indisputably terrible piece of futuristic silliness.

An effort that's somehow both depressing and trivial.

Sometimes the film looks a little silly and the high hopes we had of talented director Karyn Kusama of Girlfight fame, are not realised. The end result is a film that verges on boring.

Dashingly beautiful but distressingly dumb.

It's made with some style, but flags after the first rip-roaring action moments.
