Thursday, December 29, 2005The Future...Is Flux?
The first thing that hit me when I watched Aeon Flux was: Omg...Charlize Theron looks stunning as a brunette!
It sure was a far cry (and I mean faaaarrrrrrrrr) from her Academy Award-winning role in Monster, which I last saw her in. (Geez, that movie really gave me the creeps about her)
Nothing outstanding about the storyline though. An industrial disease wipes out 99% of the human population on earth. Fortunately, there's a hunky, good-looking scientist that manages to come up with a cure to save humans from extinction. 400 years later, everyone lives a perfect life in a gated community, or so it seems. A bunch or rebels are planning to overthrow the current regime, and it is up to Aeon to carry out the mission. There is a twist though...but I'm not letting out any spoilers here, so if you wanna know you gotta watch it yourself.
Action scenes were not bad, just seeing Charlize running around in her skimpy killer outfit makes it worth the watch...muahaha. It is an MTV Films production anyway, so what would you expect?
Overall, a nice movie to kill time with if you have nothing to do and are feeling inclined to watch some sexy babe kick ass.
