Re: Aeon Flux

I wasn't familiar with the Aeon Flux comics and had a grand time with the movie. Hot chick, blowing things up, just a bit of social commentary to let you pretend the movie was about something other than women in tight clothing and blowing things up. Pleasing mindlessness.

Re: Aeon Flux

I couldn't even enjoy it for that - I kept finding holes in the plot and the whole 'remembering past lives' thing just drove me nuts. And then the 'Oh, his life's work paid off - he's cured them! ... No, wait, nature just fixed itself, it was all pointless' pissed me off.

I also found the fight scenes hokie. I guess it just didn't work for me.

The sets were very nice - except for the damned wind tunnel - and the people were pretty. That's about it.
