Aeon Flux

AeonFluxBB.5

(out of 5)


Visually impressive but narratively anaemic science-fiction film about a futuristic society populated by survivors of an apocalyptic virus that wiped out ninety percent of humanity. Those left alive since the deadly outbreak live in a walled city that is viciously lorded over with an iron fist by leaders who can make citizens vanish at will. An underground rebellion sends its key assassin Aeon Flux () to assassinate the city’s evil chairman (), but on first attempt she fails because of a mysterious connection between him and her that she cannot understand. She also communicates with her leader () by way of swallowing a hyper-caffeinated coffee bean, and can control the willpower of ball bearings (you know I can’t be making this shit up). The end result of the mystery is interesting, but there’s nothing more to this film than genius eye candy and even it doesn’t hide the lack of substance effectively. Co-stars  and .
