Movie reviews:

It’s all so geekily gorgeous, it hardly matters that the narrative lapses in and out of incoherence and the dialogue is functional at best.

Aeon Flux is not that terrible. It’s certainly more fun than a lot of films that get lovingly showcased.

With the exception of a few enjoyable action scenes, such as when Aeon and fellow operative Sithandra (Sophie Okonedo) flip and backflip their way across a lethal garden of bullet-spewing trees and spikes disguised as blades of grass, Aeon Flux is surpris

The future looks alternately grim and hysterical in Aeon Flux, a spectacularly silly sci-fier that plays like “The Matrix” crossed with “The Island” and reinterpreted as a long-lost Michael Jackson video.

The wordless six-minute animé shorts – at the end of which our double-jointed heroine would always die – don’t lend themselves to a 95-minute action movie where viewers might rightfully expect something to make sense.
