Consensus: Aeon Flux lacks the gravity-defying pace of its animated predecessor, and, despite some flash, is largely a dull affair.

Tasha Robinson
AV Club

A slick-looking action movie with too much exposition and a weighty, pretentious tone.

John Anderson

A failure even on the action-adventure/vicarious-butt-kicking level.

Tim Brayton
Alternate Ending

It has the unmistakable hollowed-out, jerkily-paced feel that comes when scenes have been ripped out more for reasons of running time than narrative clarity.

Village Voice

The enormous, and probably impossible, amount of style and wit required to resuscitate the original cartoon into something with real faces, bodies, gravity, and locations is beyond Kusama.

In the dystopian future, apparently, women will be bendable Barbies in leather scanties, and everyone will speak like brain-dead robots.

Cole Smithey

Even Theron's sexy catsuit acrobatics can't prevent boredom from setting in as the film's unimaginative production design and dull dialogue take precedence.

When it first started it seemed to have alot going for it, but when the action and severely bad dialogue kicked in, it got way too cheesy!

Sadly, this is nothing like its animated counterpart. It's stupid, corny, pretentious and horribly acted. It retains none of the elements that made the TV… More

This is a pretty cool film. If you liked Dune and watch programmes on the Sci Fi channel then you will like and probably have already seen this. I compare it to… More
