Aeon's hair when she's in the cell.
Some called Bregna the perfect society. Some call it the height of human civilization. But others know better. The Goodchilds built Bregna to ensure us a future. They built the Relico, a memorial to remind us of what we've survived. They built walls to protect us...
Way better than you might expect
We just got home from seeing Aeon Flux, and for my money, it turned out
to be far better than I had expected. Ready for an action movie with
lots of leaping, jumping and hero stuff, it was all of that - but more.
It actually had a story line! And it was that story line that kept
things moving nicely along.
I think that it's relatively short length (97 minutes) also helped it
from being bogged down with minutiae and having a plot that had to be
mercilessly stretched beyond its limits. The scenes were crisply
photographed, the special effects were enough to give the film its
character WITHOUT making it a special-effects movie, per se.
Although a little thin in some parts, the dialogue was fair. The only
thing I thought might have made it better was the development of some
of the peripheral characters.
Charlize Theron is very versatile, and now I fully intend to see the
anime of Aeon Flux.
