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.

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

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.

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.

I had a life.

Now all I have is a mission

The year is 2415; it has been seven generations since the industrial plague whipped out 99% of the people. The few remaining survivors are all huddled into one city with walls protecting them from what ever is outside. It is an ideal city of Bregna ran by Trevor Goodchild (Marton Csokas) and a council. And as with any such city there will always be rebels that thinks something is wrong with lack of freedom and mysterious disappearances. Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron) belongs to such an organization. Her mission as the most ept agent is to dispatch the so called benevolent ruler. Can she do this or will circumstances and chance encounters change the situation?

The film does not boast of any thing really extraordinary except maybe an exceptionally rich architectural back drop. Shot mostly in Berlin we see many popular places that for some reason they though would not be that familiar to the audience. Evidently they must not know how popular Berlin is, especially key locations. The original location on their wish list was Brasilia because of its 1050's futuristic look; however that proved to be economically unfeasible. See if you recognize Sans Souci, Potsdam built in 1745 by Frederick the Great, one of the world best know orangeries.

Although this movie had nothing extraordinary it is a perfect example of the genre and will hold your attention as you anticipate where they are going with the story. Only someone that anticipates that it will stick to the animated series may be disappointed.

The DVD rendering adds some background commentaries that make rewatching the film more enjoyable.

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.
