It’s been 400 years since a virus wiped out most of the planet. All that’s remains is a small walled-in community of sorts, Bregna, run by the Goodchild Regime. Most of the citizens have no choice but to put up with their quasi-Totalitarianism. But Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron), a top operative of the underground Monican rebellion, has had enough and seeks revenge on the government she believes destroyed her life. At the behest of the Handler (Frances McDormand), who gives out the orders to the few do-gooders of Bregna, she aims to sabotage the Regime. Little does Aeon know, however, that there is already unrest within the Goodchild clan between brothers Trevor (Marton Csokas) and Oren (Jonny Lee Miller). When Aeon arrives to carry out her revenge, she unlocks a number of secrets and finds out who’s really on her side.
There are a heap of objectionable themes in Aeon Flux, but the real shame is that these actors willingly took part in this film. Granted, Theron looks stunning, steely and sultry, all at once, but we thought her Monster Oscar would afford her more meaningful roles so her looks wouldn’t be the focal point. Her acting is hard to gauge here because her stark beauty is accentuated. It’s a step back for her, even if taking the role must have padded her wallet. McDormand--who was so good just months ago in North Country with Theron--looks like Tim Burton’s twin sister in Flux, with her outlandish makeover. It is only slightly more ridiculous than the robot-like character she’s supposed to be playing. And Sophie Okonedo, who plays Aeon’s partner-in-crime, is worthy of praise, but after her Oscar-nominated performance in Hotel Rwanda, you have to wonder what made her do Flux.
