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 bright, retro-futuristic Pop Art production design matches the 1970s 'THX-1138' values of a story that suggests freedom can be found within the natural world that lies outside our technological cocoons.

Aeon Flux is not a instant classic or a pants-wettingly exciting adaptation of a forgotten graphic novel, but it is also not a Catwomanesque career killer nor a wasted 93 minutes.

There's no way to say it but to come right out with it: Aeon Flux is a good movie. Actually, it's a really good movie.

This is one of those perfect on the outside-fascist on the inside societies where everything happens in huge, cavernous spaces for no particular reason except that it's a cool setting.

Aeon Flux isn't about how cool or weird or geeky it can be, but about the potential endgame of a contemporary social debate, and that is its best asset.

Folks, I'll never understand studios. Aeon Flux is not that terrible. It's certainly more fun than a lot of films that get lovingly showcased.

Both gorgeously surreal and vacuously arty.

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.
