Aeon Flux DVD Review

We review the futuristic super-spy flick, Aeon Flux starring the Oscar-winning Charlize Theron!

Welcome to the year 2400! Almost everyone is dead, there's only one city left in the whole world and nobody has even heard of an Xbox 360. Oh, and the government is big into making people disappear if it doesn't like them. Doesn't the future suck? The good news is that super-spy Aeon Flux is part of a group that's going to bust up the government and save the day in the movie, Aeon Flux. Here's our review.

Aeon Flux - Aeon Action

Aeon Flux is a spy with gadgets so cool they make James Bond drool! Plus, she's got serious moves and enough spy-fu to clobber bad guys by the dozen. She's up against a bunch of nerds, er... scientists, who run the government and she has a mission to take out Trevor Goodchild, their leader.

Aeon Flux - Kicking Butt in the Future

The best part of this movie is Aeon Flux. Oscar-winning Charlize Theron does a great job as the kinda-creepy super spy. From her wacky style and awesome hair, to the sheer coolness of being a spy with crazy gadgets, it's a blast to watch her.

Aeon Flux - Evil Governments and Secret Plots

Ok, um, what's going on here? The bad guys are lame, the plot gets mondo confusing and the special effects don't look all that hot. Other than staring at Aeon Flux as she does a bunch of cool moves, this flick is weak.

Aeon Flux - DVD Features

The movie may have flopped, but there are some cool extras on the Aeon DVD that might be worth checking out. If you're interested in how action movies like this one are made, then you'll definitely want to watch the featurettes on stunts, set design and how they scout locations. Also, listen to commentary from Charlize Theron, producer Gale Anne Hurd and both screenwriters.

Aeon Flux - Bottom Line
It was a cool idea, but it got all messed up. With weak effects and villains that flunked their villainy 101 class, even the super-cool spy moves of Aeon Flux can't save this futuristic film.

    I watched Maze Runner today. I gotta say, I was pretty impressed with it. I have watched the Hunger Games as well (this IS the movie section, after all). At this point, I prefer the Maze Runner (movie-wise), but both books were amazing too!

    Honestly, that's quite hard. I've watched both movies and loved both of them equally. Maybe Divergent a teeny bit more. Still, Hunger Games and Divergent are both trilogies, so there's plenty to look forward to, movie wise!
