Becky and I went to see “AEON Flux” on Friday night. The Fandango website at AEON Flux describes the movie as follows:
“It is the 25th century. A virus has decimated mankind. The few remaining survivors are gathered in one last city. Political conflicts, though, have taken their toll. Into this setting, acrobatic assassin Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron) makes a dangerous trek to take out the government’s top leader.”
Becky thought that AEON Flux could be renamed to AEON Sucks. This was a really cheesy Sci-Fi movie that was about as good as a bad episode of Star Trek. Becky liked it so much that about a third of the way into the movie she said, “See ya.” and she left to watch “Walk The Line” again. I stayed for the ending and discovered the fiendish plot that was taking place on the futuristic fantasy island. They could have added a midget, who said “the plane boss”, and it would have been more entertaining.
Oh, that’s right, it wasn’t an island, it was the last city on earth complete with beautiful killer clones (Charlize Theron) out for revenge on the evil clone empire. At one point, I was thinking that I could have stayed home and watched Tomb Raider again, with Angelina Jolie, and wasted about as much time watching a beautiful woman bounce around in strange clothes. I was also thinking that I should have been getting paid to see this movie.
AEON Flux is a boring movie that will require about the same amount of brain power as watching Blade 3. I won’t give it a don’t bother since some people like Sci-Fi flicks, no matter how bad they are, and will probably enjoy this film as a dollar Rental. I didn’t think it was worth a trip to the box office and Becky doesn’t think you should ever bother seeing it.
