Aeon Flux

Paramount Pictures and MTV present a film by Karyn Kusama. Written by Phil Hay & Matt Manfredi. Based on characters created by Peter Chung MPAA: Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and sexual content. Runtime: 93 min

 

Upon receiving her academy award Charlize said she would only do important films from now on. What I’d like to know is what Charlize deems “important.” If she thinks getting a pay check for squeezing in and out of black vinyl is important than I do too. I guess I got a little paranoid and thought we’d never see her in a role that was an adequate showcase for just how good looking she is. Though I’m sure there was a humble beauty about her coal mining performance in North Country, she looked a little too butch for me.

 

The trouble this film experiences comes from being released in a post Matrix world. Everything since The Matrix has been looked at and then casually discarded with this to say, “It was ok, but it wasn’t the Matrix.” What the animated MTV cartoon had going for it was its Russ Meyer approved female features and its wicked visual style, which the movie failed to capture.

 

This movie’s worth looking at, but there’s it’s not a lot to think about.
