Just when you thought Charlize Theron couldn't get any skankier-Whammo guess again, Ben 10. I am not a Theron Hater, I just hate that she hardly thinks before throwing on this pathetic leather jumpsuit (which also makes her look like a broomstick is shoved up her wazoo-No wait, a broomstick IS shoved up there!) and letting herself be cartoonized once more.
It's another case of " Oops, they suckered me-Another 15 bucks down the bloody drain" Again, writing this, I shake my head. It wasn't horrible, it was horrifying.
The cinematics and style are electrifyingly awesome...for ten minutes. Then the flashy flipping around on impossibly high heels, and dodging an incredible (even compared to the Matrix) amount of bullets got boring. Beyond boring, it was draining. I simply couldn't focus on the plot after so many acrobatic feats left me dazed and confused(Slow Ride, Take it Easy!! LOL I went home and watched that).
Soon, I came to understand that there was no danger in the film to any of the main characters but her former partner, and stopped caring what happened. The theme, of course is that Human dependency on goverment and technology will end us(also something vague about immortality and the moral obligations against it)-a very common Sci-Fi theme. The characters of course, followed a very strict code of one-dimensionality and dispensibility. The villian attempted some two-dimensionality in his relationship with Aeon, yet failed because, once again, we've seen it all before.
All in all-Been there, won't do that again. Jeesh.
