Aeon Flux : Movie Review

Aeon Flux (2005)Aeon Flux is based upon the anime series of the same name that aired a decade ago on MTV. The show is unseen by me and probably most of the world, and it will stay that way. The story is a howler, but it seems like only the audience is in on the joke. In 2011 most of the world’s population is wiped out by a deadly virus. 400 years later, a lone group of survivors who are living in an enclosed, semi-utopian society named Bregna. The Chairman of the city-state is Trevor Goodchild (Csokas), a scientific genius who created the vaccine for the deadly virus. Aeon Flux (Theron) is part of a rebel group named the Monicans, led by The Handler (McDormand), a woman who looks like the satanic mother of Carrot Top. The Handler dishes up missions to Aeon and her comrades, and it’s not long before Aeon is instructed to kill Goodchild. This is only the tip of the iceberg, however, as government secrets and corruption is soon discovered.
