It's not terrible. It's not so bad that it's fun. Aeon Flux doesn't rhyme with 'flux.' It's just watchably bad, which is no reason to watch it at all.

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

Although it would be difficult to laud this movie as being anything stronger than mediocre, it is superior to what one would reasonably expect from something Paramount was trying to keep under wraps.

It's as if someone just swept up the floor at the Sci-Fi Factory, and instead of tossing the junk into the garbage, they glued it together and called it a movie.

The film has lots of violence, but there aren't any consequences -- it's like a videogame, where the worst thing that could happen is you have to start over.

Not awful enough to be bad, nor ambitious enough to be good.

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.

We know it's the future because everyone has the most ridiculous hairdos.

An estrogen-energized companion piece to Michael Bay's The Island.

The fact that a movie containing all of those elements could be as sterile and monotonous as this one is a wonder in itself.

Bad special effects, bad action, bad costumes -- bad everything.

Not even the sight of Theron in stylized bondage gear can atone for the muddled story, hackneyed action, and dulled-down effects.

If you couldn't tell the difference between a Flux from an Aeon before you walk into the theater, be prepared to make this response to the picture: 'whaaa?'

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

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.

Poor Pete Postlethwaite comes off looking like an old man stuck in an oversize, dried out Cheeto Puff.

Portray(s) the future in a monotone drone, forcing the poor actors to murmur their flat, lifeless dialogue.

...sci-fi jolting gibberish. Did we already mention witnessing Theron in skin-hugging get-ups acting like a curvaceous contortionist experiencing PMS?

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...
