Aeon Flux is a dismal sci-fi mish-mash

Aeon Flux

Director: Karyn Kusama

Cast: Charlize Theron, Jonny Lee Miller, Frances McDormand, Marton Csokas

Cert: 15

In a land faraway, in the distant future, there dwells a citizenship of a locked-in city ruled by an evil government. Standing against this government is a small band of rebels determined to free the people.

At which point in this pointless load of cobblers it would be understandable to wish you Good Night, and Good Luck.

There’s no real plotline, merely a parade of set-pieces. There is also a curious lack of excitement and drama in what is a dismal sci-fi mish-mash.

So, Good Night it is!

Star Rating: 1/5
