Outrageous

I just love Charlize Theron ( Beauty from South Africa ) was really great in this movie. She was a dishwasher in the City of Angels, where she was arguing with The bank manager about fake check when she'd been offered by Hollywood scout who was impressed by her affect reaction and that was her " The Invitation " in the world of Valley of the rich after what only the Sky was her limit. We all remembered her in The Devil's advocate with Kiannu Reeves ( he was the boyfriend of Serbian Actress Bojana Novaković ).

I like it just fine

There are times when I see a movie and read reviews and question if I just have horrible taste in movies. I really enjoyed it. There are problems with it, but what movie doesn't have an issue here or there. I loved the MTV version. I own copies of both the animated and live action. This is a fun science fiction romp that has a twist on the recycled material that seems so prevalent in Hollywood these days (and then also). I thought the acting was decent and the visual effects were pretty good and don't seem horribly dated twelve years later. I think people should disregard the critics on this and check it out if they haven't.

A terrible movie that has very little to do with the originals

I was very attracted to the original shorts which appeared on Liquid Television/Mtv in the 1990's. I would live for each Friday night when I was able to watch a new episode. The shorts were great because it was conflict between an assassin which was always on a mission to steal some information or object, then later kill what appear to be an evil scientist.

The Aeon Flux I knew would always have to sneak across a wall or barrier of some sort, covered with drones and guns, using stealth and technology to evade death.

This movie has very little to do with the original series and is a good example of how fat cats in board rooms should tinker with the ideas of an artist. This movie is strictly about making some profit rather than creating quality.

While the movie is entertaining in some respects, it has many fatal flaws and plot devices which appear just in time to move the move along. The love interest is very weak. The plot is even weaker. The only thing going for this movie is that the special effects are cool.

I don't even think the casting was good enough. Goodwin is more European and has a thick German accent. Aeon Flux is thinner and taller. There are other choices for actors which would have fit the characters better.

Overall I enjoyed the movie but did not think it was good enough. It seems to be from a cookie cutter design, typical of Hollywood trying to put out quantity rather than quality.
