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 film with lots of leaping, jumping and character stuff, it was all of that - but more. It now had a storyline line! And it was that storyline 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 unique results were enough to give the movie its hero WITHOUT making it a special-effects movie, per se.Although a tiny 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 actually I totally intend to see the anime of Aeon Flux.
I thought for sure I would be.This is the first film based on a TV present 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 movie will fall snug into the sequence of the Aeon Flux story-line (such as it is). I feel that for the first time a film like this has really captured the imagery, character, and themes of the TV present it's called after. From the script, to the directing, to even the casting, this movie has really lived up to a present that I fondly remember from my college years.When I first heard about it, I cringed at what I was convinced would be a butchering of what was an incredibly well crafted show. I thought for sure that the screenplay wouldn't blend with the series and that it would lack all of the post-modern themes that made the present so thought provoking and mind bending. I thought for sure that the characters in the film would be the superb carbon copied cliché archetypes we search in each action flik rather than the strange (in personality and looks), flawed, often torn, and questionably motivated characters that made the present so interesting. And I also assumed that this movie would be so overwrought with cgi results that I'd wonder why they didn't just create a cartoon.I've never been so satisfied to tell that I was wrong on all accounts. The screenplay almost seems like an episode they never made. It starts straightforward, leading into beautifully choreographed action. But just as you think you're settling into a dynamic action piece meant to leave your brain dead, the plot is twisted around, and you search yourself pondering philosophical ideas you haven't pondered since you last read Kurt Vonnegut. The characters and their motives can rarely be pinned to nice & evil but more or less selfish; other idea carried over from the show.The casting was also done with the look of the present in mind. While Theron is far more superb than I ever imagined the true Aeon looking, she captures the stoic, brutal, and graceful demeanors of the series' antihero. The rest of the casting for the movie is even better. The actors selected really do resemble the photos I recall from the present like the absurd hair-dos, angular facial features, full lips, and tortured expressions that create you think they're wondering if life is really worth living.The rest of the film's look is also spectacular because it's perhaps the most realistic futuristic society I've seen on movie and because the locations/sets echo the look of the original show. The cgi results no longer resemble something out of Tron but really create you wonder if what you're looking at is computerized or on the set. This may be just the natural progression of pc results as I noticed the same thing with the recent Harry Potter movie. The setting (while not as grand and wide as I remember) has retained the post-industrial devolution look and blended it seamlessly with the super-futuristic look of the aristocratic locations.I feel the only thing they didn't quite receive right was the sensually explicit nature of the relationship between Trevor and Aeon. I'm not telling that the film required a full out sex stage or anything (although it would've fit considering the theme at the end) but we don't see evidence of the mind games, competition, and fetishism that made the relationship so compelling in the TV run. I was also hoping that the score would have a several echos of the original soundtrack for the shorts and that a several more of the full episode characters would create an appearance, especially Bambara.Overall, If you fondly remember the Aeon Flux from Mtv's Liquid TV and you liked the full episode series even more, you'll dig this film. If you like weird post modern movies (like Brazil, FightClub, or Akira) that leave you thinking a couple of days after you've seen it, you'll dig this film. If you've hated each single crummy film based on a TV series, you could really dig this film. Most of all; If you're a sci-fi fanatic who feels it's been far too long since you've seen a nice film, receive out and see this one.
By far the finest movie adaptation of a MTV animated short yet! Oh wait, it also may be the only one...;)While any review of this film that didn't mention the inspiration would be remiss, it could 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 detail a pretty 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 compounds accompanied solely by the sound of rhythmic footfalls and gunfire, leaving a gory trail of slain troops 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 every 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 movie ver should do justice to the original animation, but this film delivered quite nicely in it's own way. The pleasant disorientation of the series remains to a degree, but the film is also able to backfill the storyline behind Trevor and Aeon in a satisfying manner without dumbing down Peter Chung's special and panoramic bio- nanotechnological science fiction.I also wasn't sold on the concept 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 should have played the role as well. Charlize took what should have been a hollow, eye-candy-only part and added a sublime depth while bringing the angular, scantily-clad "woman of several words" to life. Any number of hot actresses should have filled out the skimpy digs, but Charlize is able to deliever the essential intrigue as well as the splendiferous ass. Add "Action Heroine" to Charlize Theron's already formidable repertoire. Marton Csokas did a nice job of capturing the odd ambiguity of Trevor Goodchild. The helping cast all performed to par and beyond, with the end effect being a memorable post-apocalyptic pseudo-utopian action cyberpunk romance. Tell that five times fast! ;)Of course there will be purists who beef about this or that not being real to whatever part of the original series, and of course there will be sanctimonious "critics" who create droll comparisons to Catwoman, but I feel that the Aeon Flux film certainly accomplishes a potent and complimentary mix of visual and mental stimulation, and anyone who likes that sort of thing could go see this movie.
