Aeon Flux Reviews

May 13, 2006
A slick-looking action movie with too much exposition and a weighty, pretentious tone.
February 9, 2006
The performances are plastic...
December 9, 2005
The enormous, and probably impossible, amount of style and wit required to resuscitate the original cartoon into something with real faces, bodies, gravity, and locations is beyond Kusama.
December 9, 2005
A failure even on the action-adventure/vicarious-butt-kicking level.

It probably looked like a good idea on paper.

In the dystopian future, apparently, women will be bendable Barbies in leather scanties, and everyone will speak like brain-dead robots.

Aeon Flux is best appreciated for the costumes, the sets and Charlize Theron's haughty athleticism.

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

The picture climaxes with the crashing of a blimp, an image that encapsulates the Hindenburg scale of its failure.

One would figure, after 400 years of bad action movies, that leaders would learn: If a woman comes at you dressed in a tight jumpsuit, duck.

December 5, 2005
Spectacularly silly.
December 5, 2005
Simultaneously silly, ostentatious and terribly boring.
December 5, 2005
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.

Ten years ago, Chung's animated Aeon Flux was groundbreaking, inspirational. It still is. Maybe another spin through Chung's Flux DVD set will wipe away all memory of its middling live-action cousin.

Kusama seems to spend most of her energy rendering Theron in perfect poses and lighting schemes.
December 2, 2005
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.

Theron plays Aeon as a reluctant cipher who yearns to get back to a real existence. By the end, you'll know the feeling.

December 2, 2005
Paramount Pictures and MTV Films blatantly tried to keep the movie, which debuted Friday, away from critics to prevent opening-day reviews. For good reason. Hollywood suits didn't want anyone to know how utterly boring the movie is.

Thanksgiving is over, but those gluttons still hungry for turkey should enjoy picking at the carcass of Aeon Flux.

Aeon Flux is by far the year's worst movie, a most dubious achievement.

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.
December 2, 2005
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.
