Aeon Flux (Blu-Ray)
Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron) is the top operative in the underground 'Monican' rebellion, a rebellion built to bring down the governmental control still in place 400 years after a disease wiped out the majority of the world's population. When Aeon is sent to to kill the governmental leader, she realises that not everything it what it seems and begins to piece together the truth. Packed with excellent fight sequences, intrigue and an animation/Sci-Fi Ora. The origins of this movie are very apparent, and although I cannot comment on comparisons with Peter Chung's animated series; having never seen it, for me Aeon Flux is a visually impressive action feast with plenty of thought-provoking substance and an interesting storyline. And I must add that Charlise Theron gives an outstanding performance, given the complexity of her character and the physical demands of the role; she delivers perfectly and simply oozes sex appeal. Although not for everyone, Aeon Flux is very stylish and really does entertain.
The Endless Cycle of Ghostly Immortality Finally Ends!
The stylized vision of Kayrn Kusama makes this 97 minute version of the film one of the most enjoyable futuristic story-lines I have seen in years. The story is so mind boggling that it very well could come true. On behalf of all the Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Futurists, Zombie, Trekkie, Alien, Germ Warfare, Genetics, and Apocalyptic film enthusiasts out there, I'm going to try and give this review my best shot, even though I could still take some more time to watch this film for the third time. I would not have attempted to write anything about this film after a once over. The story is not a bit confusing, however, has many twist and turns, which makes it even more interesting. Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron) belongs to an underground group of resistance called the Monicans. They secretly plan to destroy the Goodchild regime since people are secretly dissappearing daily. The film takes place in the year 2415. Everyone left on the planet (roughly 5 million) live within the walls of a Utopian city named Bregna. Four hundred years have passed since a deadly virus attacked all life, almost erasing its existence. Without Trevor Goodchild (Martin Csokas) as supreme commander, humanity would have perished. The world inside Bregna is drawn in bright, almost psychedelic tones, colors, flashes of light and perfect harmony of design. Life here feels as if we glimpse only into the tiniest part of this strange place as a spectator from another galaxy. A pool of tears acts as CCTV for the entire city. Of course, pills exchanged in French kisses are used for telepathy, little pellets of liquid metal have a will of their own, and Aeon has her own poison/instruction storage factory within her own eyeball. Aeon, along with her cohort Sithandra (Sophie Okoneda), is assigned to infiltrate the compound and assassinate Trevor Goodchild in order to end the senseless debacle of a once stable society. What happens next is extremely rare. Something is triggered within Aeon that disallows her to complete her mission. Call it Deja Vu, love, or just plain infatuation. Aeon falls desperately in love with her enemy. Little do we know exactly why as we watch the film unfold, but it adds an extra bit of mysticism to the story. The lost love between them is soon to revealed along with the plot to end the cycle of genetic reincarnation foiled the Oren Goodchild (Johnny Lee Miller), the younger brother of Trevor who is really behind it all. Charlize Theron has a stalking quality about her in this film, much like a gate/prance of a cross between a sloth and a preying mantis. The salamander crawl was more than cool, and other, animal-inspired, ballet-like movements only performed in video games. A good portion of this film is dazzling to watch, without any explanation behind it. Strictly speaking, Aeon Flux is about 75% futuristic fantasy, with very little sci-fi. The heady dynamic in this film is well thought and and I have to give total credit to the team of screenwriters Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. The role Marton Csokas plays in this film is quite important since it is he who has to pull the feel of this film together. The Handler (Frances McDormand) makes for a wonderful counterpoint against the control of Goodchild. The paranoia of the film makes it a semi-conspiracy film not knowing who to trust. The Keeper (Pete Postlethwaite) makes the viewer wish that things should finally come to an end. Amelia Warner should be mentioned for her role as Una Flux.
