From Amazon.co.uk

Like the animated series it’s based on, Aeon Flux is the kind of sci-fi that’s best appreciated by the MTV generation. It’s a serious attempt at stylized, futuristic action/adventure (the title character, played by Charlize Theron, is essentially a female James Bond for the cyberpunk era) and taken for what it is, it’s not all that bad. The action takes place in the year 2415, four centuries after a virus nearly decimated the human race, leaving only five million survivors in a utopian city called Bregna. Aeon belongs to the Monicans, a secret rebel resistance force that is struggling to destroy the Goodchild regime led by its namesake, Trevor Goodchild (Martin Csokas), the ruler of Bregna and a descendant of the man who found a cure for the deadly virus. As instructed by the Handler (Frances McDormand, gamely playing along in ridiculous sci-fi regalia), Aeon is assigned to assassinate Goodchild, but there are deeper secrets to be discovered, and conspiracies to be foiled. This leads director Karyn Kusama (who fared much better with her debut feature Girlfight) to indulge in all sorts of routine action and fast-paced gunplay, but the elusive pleasures of Aeon Flux are mostly found in the sleek athleticism of Theron and costar Sophie Okonedo (as a fellow Monican), who commit themselves 100% to roles that are dramatically flat yet physically dynamic.

Other highlights include Aeon’s high-tech gadgetry (including an eyeball that doubles as a microsocope) and the amusing sight of Pete Postlethwaite in a costume resembling a construction-site disposal tube, but Flux fans may wonder what happened to the surreal, chromium sheen future that gave the MTV series its visionary appeal. As a live-action feature, Aeon Flux is a miscalculated exercise in cheesy style and dour tone, but it’s entertaining enough to earn a small cadre of admirers. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

In the 25th century, a virus has decimated mankind. The few remaining survivors are gathered in one last city. Political conflicts, though, have taken their toll. Into this setting, acrobatic assassin Aeon Flux makes a dangerous trek to take out the government's top leader.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and entertaining film. 20 July 2006
By Andy
Format:DVD
Aeon Flux is a film that was released last year starring Academy Award winning actress Charlize Theron.

A virus kills 99% of the world's population and a scientist called Trevor Goodchild develops a cure. 400 years later, the survivors live in the city of Bregna which lies inside large walls that nobody crosses. Some call Bregna the perfect society, pollution is very low and the people seem to be very healthy and happy. But others notice things that others ignore, people go missing without explanation and people turn their back on it because they have total faith in their government, but others no better. A group of rebels emerge called the Monachans, as they attempt to overthrow the government, Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron) is their best hope of success.

The plot is surprisingly stronger than what I expected. It isn't anything original; everything has all been done before, it ticks all the boxes for what you would expect from a sci-fi movie, but this doesn't make it bad at all. Along the way there are some genuinely surprising twists in the storyline that keep you interested, and the settings are all fantastic so you really do feel linked to the world they are living in. Again the story has its down sides, it is vaguely told and it often tails off on itself making you fill in the blanks.

The characters in Aeon Flux are great. The costumes range from being eccentric to the truly bizarre. Character development is quite weak even Aeon is a little wooden, although Charlize puts up another great performance. I have already mentioned that the setting are very good, they actually remind me a lot of the locations in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. The action scenes are where this film shines, Charlize worked incredibly hard to achieve her athletic state in the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying but forgettable sci fi 29 July 2006
By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's puzzling why this film was so derided on its original release. Clearly, it is not a classic, but it is enjoyable enough - one can only think that the media were out to get Charlize Theron after her recent Oscar win.

It is the future - a short time from now a disease wipes out 99% of the population, until Trevor Goodchild finds a cure. Now as the movie starts it is 400 years later and mankind is reduced to living in one walled city. However, there is unrest in this Eutopia and resistance has sprung up, of which Aeon is one. However, events unfold which lead her to question not just her orders but the truth of her very existence. It's a neat set up, and the story is not as trite as you might expect - it has some genuine unexpected directions and a satisfying conclusion.

If the movie has a flaw, it's that it fails to find much heart - the Eutopia is by its nature pristine and cool, but the acting seems to fall into the same trap so that we don't find much humanity to relate to. This future is not just cool but sexy too - almost like an updated version of the future seen in 'Logans Run'. If you have seen the trailer you might be tempted to see this as a special effects movie, but in fact the effects serve the story well.

All in all a satisfying tale, which is crisply photographed and has a cast and art direction which are very easy on the eye. I recommend it for an undemanding evenings entertainment where action is desired, but not at the expense of story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Visually amazing. 2 Mar 2007
By Ian Armer VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Aeon Flux is pretty well crafted. It's visually amazing with its stylised set design and Berlin locations and any movie that runs under 90 minutes gets my vote regardless. Unfortunately, as visually impressive as it is, Aeon Flux is also utterly cold. The characters are like ice, their motivations well plotted but unbelievable. There's not a single character you care about in the entire film. And all the slick design and action sequences in the world cannot lift it above the 'seen it all before' school of Hollywood filmmaking. A real shame, because some of the themes touched upon regarding mortality (literally 'touched upon' in about 30 seconds) would have made this a more interesting and involving tale.

On the plus side, it is exceptionally well made, abounding with visual ideas and possibly worth seeing if you are a filmmaker looking to pick up a few hints and tips.

An undemanding time waster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sci-fi action movies 24 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The lovely Charlize Theron as a sci-fi action assassin. Such an under rated actress. Please compare to Monster. Now that's versatile! If you liked Elektra you'll love this too! I loved it and so did everyone who watched it with me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but not without flaws. 9 Jan 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Aeon flux. It is a good film, but not without some flaws. The plot has been touched in many other reviews so I am not going to describe what the film is about.
The flaws are simple, you cannot connect emotionally with the characters, they are like ice. Having said that, there is a reason as to why this is. The studio cut a whole 30 mins of footage from this film, which according to the director destroyed the heart and soul of the film. It amazes me, the whole reason the studio hires directors is to make the film according to their vision, not for the studio to say it is too long and re-cut the film and make it worse and spoil the vision of the director.

I guarantee that if this film was restored to its original state in a directors cut, it would be getting much higher ratings.
