OK for a Hollywood movie but NOT Aeon Flux

The Movie as it is alright if you expect just what i have expected. A stereotype action/special effect movie. Good fighting scenes and great special effects. BUT, honestly, this has nothing to do with the animated series. Well, yes, there are the technical gizmo's. And yes, there was some sort of love/hate relationship between Aeon and Trevor. Also there were clones in both, the series and the Movie (with one big difference, the idea of cloning was very much perverted using clones also as sex-toys. But thats about it. Trevor Goodkind a GOOD GUY? Maybe i am over-stressing the animated series, but i saw many philosophical implications in the series, totally lacking in the Movie.

The society in the city was a parted one and not this "everything is just fine" utopia like in the movie (Aeon entered the upper class part with an absolutely marvelous vehicle - totally missing in the Movie). The whole point about the animated series was the gray shade of both, the government and the rebels. There was no "good side". Both killed for their own goals, never revealed to the audience. In the movie you get your evil guy you can hate. Easy but unsatisfying. Both sides had their traitors, blurring the rest of a real difference between them.

The conflict between the rebels and the government was a futile struggle like in Orwell's 1984 (seen in a very good episode of the animated series, where the balance of power constantly changed between the government army and the rebels). The conflict existed for no reason but for the conflict itself. Therefore the element of luck was so important. The fact if you live or die depended on sheer coincidental factors (the "Nail"-scene in the animated series).

The "caligulesk" absolute ruler called Trevor Goodkind like in Hobbes's Leviathan was also missing. In the animated series Trevor had it all, leaving his live an escapade of sick games and lusts to fill his emptiness which only Aeon could fill. In the movie he is just a monarch, debating with his "servants".

Summed up, just watch this movie for itself, but you will be disappointed if you expect anything "deep" in the movie.

Please forgive my poor English and the typos hence i am a native German guy ;-)

Outrageous

I just love Charlize Theron ( Beauty from South Africa ) was really great in this movie. She was a dishwasher in the City of Angels, where she was arguing with The bank manager about fake check when she'd been offered by Hollywood scout who was impressed by her affect reaction and that was her " The Invitation " in the world of Valley of the rich after what only the Sky was her limit. We all remembered her in The Devil's advocate with Kiannu Reeves ( he was the boyfriend of Serbian Actress Bojana Novaković ).

I like it just fine

There are times when I see a movie and read reviews and question if I just have horrible taste in movies. I really enjoyed it. There are problems with it, but what movie doesn't have an issue here or there. I loved the MTV version. I own copies of both the animated and live action. This is a fun science fiction romp that has a twist on the recycled material that seems so prevalent in Hollywood these days (and then also). I thought the acting was decent and the visual effects were pretty good and don't seem horribly dated twelve years later. I think people should disregard the critics on this and check it out if they haven't.
