3.0 out of 5 stars Visually amazing., 2 Mar 2007
This review is from: Aeon Flux The Movie [DVD] (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.
