Synopsis


Aeon Flux
Based on the animated series by Peter Chung, Aeon Flux imagines a future in which 99 percent of the world's population is killed through industrial disease, and the survivors live in a single city that, despite utopian appearances, is quite totalitarian. Disinclined to embrace any particular ideology outside of a hatred for Trevor Goodchild (Marton Csokas), the leader of the council that governs the walled city, hyper-sexualized assassin Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron) seeks to bring about a revolution. Retaining the title character's trademark jet-black hair and sleek, revealing clothing, this film adaptation fleshes out the story behind the sexual and romantic tension between Aeon and Trevor. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

    Nice visuals, but story is not that compelling

    I'm sure that if I had seen this movie when it came out that I would have thought that it was a cool, new story with style. However, there has been so many movies regarding a utopian future with, sorry for the spoiler;cloning. As a matter of fact, I watched this dvd after watching "Oblivion" with Tom Cruise. Cloning again and a story of our "future" . I did enjoy the special features which contain great info on the history of many buildings in Berlin that if you had never been there you would never known that they exist. Plus, they were never used in any prior movies so learning about them was great. The stories about the costumes was great as well. It's not difficult to like anything that Charlize Theron is in, especially when she looks so beautiful. I liked the special features about the stunt trainig. She REALLY worked hard and did an excellent job. Alot of effort was put into this film; perhaps having some more back story and more character development could have helped plus it was a little slow at times. The movies has alot of visual detail, so enjoy that.

    Great Movie

    At first I was a little unsure about buying this one, but was glad I did after watching it. It has some great action and special effects that keep your eyes jumping. Being that it's set in the future allows for the use of incredicle technology that is used throughout this movie. The storyline is solid also with a massive coverup going on that many apparently know about, but are too fearful to do anything with the exception of select crew. Of couse it takes one lone character to finally stand up and isolate herself from all sides in order to unravel the truth. What a ride!

    A good Action Movie attempt by Theron

    This was based on an MTV animated series, which I also recommend. This was a good action movie but it was poorly polished and not developed too well. Anyway you can get better movie reviews on other sites, I will say that I was disappointed that this did NOT include a digital copy, which is what I thought I saw, but nope. Only the Bluray and nothing much other than a few extra features. I'd but it again only if it was on sale again.

    Aeon is Hot

    What I loved, other than the fantastic costumes and surreal landscapes was the twists and turns in the story! This reminded me of those books I read and loved, when you didn't really know who the bad guy was and that was really going on. You must pay attention as a lot goes! Aeon and Goodchild are caught in a game of cat and mouse and it was enticing to see how they were connected and what the truth would do.

    I remember the aeon flux shorts on mtv's liquid television but don't really remember them being like this movie adaptation? Charlize Theron is hot no doubt but the movie still very strange....

    I've watched this a few times and always see a few new aspects in the story. Doesn't get boring for me but it is getting harder to find on streaming services. Came to a point that I wanted it for my collection and then the price was right, so ....
