This is X-Men meets Matrix. Or... this is what the Next Generation movies could have been.Sor far, this is the best movie I've seen all year - better than Chronicles of Narnia & Harry Potter. In the Sci-Fi world, it's a step up from Minority Report or I-Robot.My interpretation of the negative reviews: that stuffy old white men who write the reviews Ebert, etc don't understand edgy movies. They didn't understand Matrix at first, either.I didn't know there was a series before I saw the movie. People who say it didn't make sense at first are too used to brainless <more>
Hollywood flicks, serving you a formulaic plot on a platter.This plot was not difficult to understand - the movie asks for your patience the first 30 minutes, as the story unfolds. It's a futuristic mystery, people! Get real - how lazy must you be if you lose interest because everything isn't explained immediately. It's a mildly and pleasantly complex story. If you want a Steven Siegal or Schwarzenegger action flick, look elsewhere.And only the first half of the movie is the "mystery". It takes about an hour for the plot, the characters, and the futuristic setting to unfold. Then the movie evolves into a stunning action flick.Thing I loved about this movie:-Srong female characters -Excellent soundtrack -Extremely interesting visually -Extremely creative sci-fi contributions like the arm-to-leg transplants -Thoughtful cinematography -A very strong cast -Artistic sets & effects -Creative weapons & futuristic props -A truly unique story - it didn't try to copy anything which probably confused the Hollywood lemmings out there My only complaint - it needed more in spots. Particularly, more character development for other members of the resistance. If you've seen it...I believe they jumped the gun getting to the last "sniper" scene. I wanted them to invest more time developing the animosity between Aeon Flux & the resistance movement.Nonetheless, I'm hoping for a sequel. And I hope Ms Theron doesn't get depressed about some of the bad reviews. This is *nothing* like Catwoman as Ebert said . My humble prediction: it will turn into a cult classic.
Great Visuals, Impressive Style, Hot Theron but... (by Chrysanthepop)
'Aeon Flux' is visually and stylistically dazzling. The CGI and set designs look great and the the futuristic world that is presented is impressive. I haven't watched the original but having read other comments I would like to watch that. However, regarding this movie, it is the screenplay that is a big letdown. It is very obviously predictable and contrived. It lacks depth. It's more like just another forgettable Hollywood entertainer. Some scenes seem to be there only to show the special effects which are great and stunts as they don't seem to have any relevance for <more>
the main plot.In my opinion, the love story is the weakest link. It's very unconvincing and the 'romantic' lead lack chemistry. Furthermore, apart from Theron, McDormand, Okonedo and Postlethwaite, the acting is terrible. Theron looks the part and acts well. She is beautiful but deadly. She does a lot of crawling around and arse kicking but manages to stay in character and looks absolutely sizzling. Okonedo doesn't have a great role to speak of but she does well. McDormand and Postlethwaite are effective in their small roles. Miller is very bad and Csokas is wooden.Having said that, I'd say it's not a horrendous film. Just something to watch if you don't have anything better. I really enjoyed the visuals and the style and of course just looking at the beautiful Theron. Other than that, the plot might appeal to the average movie watcher if they want something with no depth, but just an action, sci-fi, romantic flick.
Keryn kusama came back nicely after GIRL FIGHT!!!! (by shahrukh_moon)
The sci-fi auctioneer is set 400 years in the future, when disease has wiped out the majority of the earth's population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists. The story centers on Aeon Flux Theron , the top operative in the underground 'Monican' rebellion, led by The Handler Frances McDormand . When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill a government leader, she uncovers a world of secrets. Keryn kusama came back nicely after GIRL FIGHT!!!! I really liked the quality of this movie like this movie had something that i haven't seen in <more>
any other movie. it's probably the best action film of the year and i hope it becomes a big hit and i m kinda sure it will.
By far the finest film adaptation of a MTV animated short yet! Oh wait, it also may be the only one...; While any review of this movie that didn't mention the inspiration would be remiss, it should be noted that Aeon Flux not only stands well on it's own, but leaps and bounds as an eclectic sci-fi tale that just happens to feature a beautiful lead actress in skin-tight outfits laying waste to suckers by the dozen.Aeon Flux began as a component of MTV's "Liquid Television" animation showcase, where Peter Chung's drastically drawn heroine would zip across infiltrated <more>
compounds accompanied solely by the sound of rhythmic footfalls and gunfire, leaving a gory trail of slain soldiers only to meet a gory end herself. The short merited expansion into a series that added a host of profound characters and plot lines, not to mention some well-acted dialog. I was never able to catch the series in sequence, but never felt much of a need to, as the "what the hell is going on here?" feeling that I got from each episode greatly contributed to an overall feeling of "I don't really know, but it's awesome!".Cerebral. Dynamic. Trippy. Sexy. Words that come to mind to describe the Aeon Flux flavor. I was highly doubtful that any film version could do justice to the original animation, but this movie delivered quite nicely in it's own way. The pleasant disorientation of the series remains to a degree, but the movie is also able to backfill the story behind Trevor and Aeon in a satisfying manner without dumbing down Peter Chung's unique and panoramic bio- nanotechnological science fiction.I also wasn't sold on the idea of Charlize Theron as lethal-lightning agent Aeon Flux when I first heard she had the part, but once again, Miss Theron demonstrates her versatility and power as an actress, leaving me thinking that no one else could have played the role as well. Charlize took what could have been a hollow, eye-candy-only part and added a sublime depth while bringing the angular, scantily-clad "woman of few words" to life. Any number of hot actresses could have filled out the skimpy digs, but Charlize is able to provide the essential intrigue as well as the splendiferous ass. Add "Action Heroine" to Charlize Theron's already formidable repertoire. Marton Csokas did a great job of capturing the odd ambiguity of Trevor Goodchild. The supporting cast all performed to par and beyond, with the end result being a memorable post-apocalyptic pseudo-utopian action cyberpunk romance. Say that five times fast! ; Of course there will be purists who beef about this or that not being true to whatever part of the original series, and of course there will be sanctimonious "critics" who make droll comparisons to Catwoman, but I feel that the Aeon Flux movie certainly accomplishes a potent and complimentary mix of visual and mental stimulation, and anyone who likes that sort of thing should go see this movie.
I thought for sure I would be.This is the first movie based on a TV show that I've gone out to see in a long time and for the first time, I haven't been disappointed. For anyone who remembers the original shorts from liquid TV and the following series, this film will fall snug into the sequence of the Aeon Flux story-line such as it is . I feel that for the first time a movie like this has really captured the imagery, character, and themes of the TV show it's named after. From the script, to the directing, to even the casting, this film has really lived up to a show that I fondly <more>
I went to see Aeon Flux with no expectations because I knew nothing of it other than I heard the movie was based on a game. I am a Charlize Theron fan and the movie trailers looked great. I needed no other prompting to see it.The movie was fantastic. Very visually appealing and, despite a few plot twists, was easy and fun to follow. I had no idea where it was going to end up and I like that in a movie.Charlize was fabulous in the role. She was sexy, tough, vulnerable and simply a joy to watch. The others in the cast, especially Marton Csokas, were just as good and made the movie even better <more>
but it is clearly Charlize's vehicle.I enjoyed a lot of the filming techniques as I sometimes felt I was watching the graphics of a video game. I also, at times, almost felt I was playing the game. I found myself talking to the character suggesting certain courses of action. I even felt, when things did not go well, that I wanted to revisit a plot twist and change it. Like, I said, it was a fun movie.Highly recommend even to people who are not sci-fi fans. Although the movie takes place in the future, the problems and issues are timeless. The setting is just a good excuse to have fun with special effects.
We just got home from seeing Aeon Flux, and for my money, it turned out to be far better than I had expected. Ready for an action movie with lots of leaping, jumping and hero stuff, it was all of that - but more. It actually had a story line! And it was that story line that kept things moving nicely along.I think that it's relatively short length 97 minutes also helped it from being bogged down with minutiae and having a plot that had to be mercilessly stretched beyond its limits. The scenes were crisply photographed, the special effects were enough to give the film its character <more>
WITHOUT making it a special-effects movie, per se.Although a little thin in some parts, the dialogue was fair. The only thing I thought might have made it better was the development of some of the peripheral characters.Charlize Theron is very versatile, and now I fully intend to see the anime of Aeon Flux.
The critics wrote it off before seeing it, but it turns out to be pretty good. (by oregonhiker)
Aeon Flux gets a bum rap from the critics due primarily to the politics of the studio / critic relationship; the studio's decision not to preview the film got the critic's undies in a bunch. But Aeon Flux turns out to be a solid B+ grade SciFi flick that is inventive, stylistic, coherent and just plain fun to watch, particularly if you are partial to an athletic incarnation of Charlize Theron in Spandex. The film is well-paced. The main characters have depth and there is "real emotion" evident in the acting, always a plus for a SciFi film. There are a few things to complain <more>
about to be sure, but they're not crucial to the plot. I enjoyed the "existential dilemma" and "identity crisis" elements that made the story interesting. I'll look forward to watching this one again in a year or two.
If you're in for a bit of mind-bending sci-fi, Aeon Flux will certainly do (by tangar2123)
I never saw the animated series or the shorts, I might now. The movie is a Dystopian fantasy, that's not being marketed by Paramount as what it really is. Its movie relatives are not so much The Matrix or Equilibrium, but, in a way, Alex Proyas' Dark City even if that movie is very different visually . Aeon Flux follows the rather mysterious titular character, who fights against the system in a future where what remains of humanity lives in a perfect and organized city state, apparently bright and serene, if one didn't notice that wall that's supposed to protect it from the <more>
