Storyline

400 years in the future, set in the year 2415, Aeon Flux is a mysterious assassin. Four centuries after a virus nearly annihilated the human race, leaving only five million survivors in a utopian city called Bregna. Aeon is struggling to destroy the Goodchild regime led by its namesake, Trevor Goodchild, the ruler of Bregna and a descendant of the man who found a cure for the deadly virus. As instructed by the Handler, Aeon is assigned to assassinate Goodchild, but there are deeper secrets to be discovered, and conspiracies to be foiled.

Quotes

[first lines]
Æon Flux: [narrating] Some called Bregna the perfect society. Some call it the height of human civilization. But others know better. The Goodchilds built Bregna to ensure us a future. They built the Relico, a memorial to remind us of what we've survived. They built walls to protect us. They tell us that outside, nature has retaken the world. But the real problems lie within. We are haunted by sorrows we cannot name. People disappear and our government denies these crimes. The Goodchild regime...

empty MTV fluff
1 December 2005 | by hunboonSee all my reviews

Managed to get free tickets for the film premiere in Singapore. Only 30%-40% attendance, not very promising.

My heart sank further when I saw "MTV Film Productions" in the opening credits.

My worst fears were realised when the film went through an extended 1-hour long MTV sequence of plodding contrived dialogue delivered in a monotone, meaningless action sequences, and "creative" camera shots.

It was only until the last 15 minutes of the show that we realise what the show was all about. Even so, the climax got a "ok... so that's it?" reaction from the audience.

The basic premise is actually quite good and provides lots of room for exploration. Unfortunately, this film never got around to it. Somehow, the director contrived to make an action film feel agonisingly slow-paced.

This show just scrapes a passing 5 stars, thanks to Charlize Theron's fantastic figure.
