Summary: Characters acting wildly with no motivation.
The movie starts out with rebels killing goverment agents, but it's really, really not clear at all that the rebels are the "good guys". Aeon Flux herself is quite an efficient killer, operating under orders without question or explanation. The writing in this movie is deplorable, no good explanation of motive. Okay, the brother wants to continue to the cloning program-- why? He won't live forever. Even if he continues to get cloned, he'll still not live forever. It's stupid. And Aeon Flux wants to end it all, make it so everyone will die. Why? Because people are just "living like ghosts". Well guess what, maybe those people want to live and continue? And then she has to blow up the computer at the end, why? It makes no sense. I'm so glad I didn't pay to see this nonsense in the theater. And how the hell did technology get so advanced if there's only a few million people left in the world and they're trapped in a city run in a government controlled environment? It makes no sense. And the special effects are good in some places, not so hot in others. Frequently, they re-used the same sets over and over. Oh well. The best part of the movie is Charlize Theron's sexy sleepwear. (See it here or here if the links are still valid.)

Summary: Nice scenery, nothing special of a movie
As I expected, the actual movie itself wasn't much, but the scenery (especially Charlize Theron, as linked to by Xibo) was great. The characters all seemed mostly devoid of emotion, or believable emotion in any case, so it was difficult to sympathize with any of them. I recommend putting it on at a party with the volume turned off.
