'Aeon Flux'
(Charlize Theron, Marton Csokas, Jonny Lee Miller, Sophie Okonedo, Pete Postlethwaite, et al / PG-13 / 75 mins / Paramount)

Overview: Four hundred years from now, disease has wiped out the majority of Earth's population, save for the residents of Bregna, a city-state protected by a giant wall and ruled by scientists. Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron) is an operative for the Monican Rebellion, an underground group led by the Handler (Frances McDormand) who wants Aeon to kill the government's leader.

Verdict: Although the movie wasn't that great, Theron IS an arresting image, but, like everything else in 'Aeon Flux,' she's stranded in a trashy and derivative glum zone of fashion-runway fascism. Indeed, it's visually sumptuous for no other reason than to indulge arty gluttons. Surprisingly draggy at times, 'Aeon Flux' is not THAT terrible, but it ain't no Oscar material either!!
