  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Movie review: Aeon Flux

Grade: D

“Aeon Flux” has arrived in theaters about six months too late, because this film is about the equivalent of a summer action movie, loud, brainless, and stupid.

“Aeon Flux” is a post-apocalyptic tale that takes place in the sole remaining city on earth that is ruled by a totalitarian government. The film focuses on Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron), who is a member of an underground movement dedicated to overthrowing the government and is trying to avenge the death of her sister.

There is a whole bunch of actors that unexpectedly pop-up throughout the film, including Sophie Okendo (“Hotel Rwanda”) and Frances McDormand (“Fargo”), both who have either won or were nominated for Academy Awards. But neither of them can manage top save this poor excuse for a motion picture.

The main problem with film is that there is the most minimal story that I have seen for a film yet this year. The story’s sole purpose is to move the film along so that it can move from action sequence to action sequence with as little effort or thought being put in as physically possible.

While there is pretty much no story, and the acting is rather sub-par especially considering the cast. It’s one plus are the action sequences though is that the action sequences are pretty cool to watch and very well choreographed too, but even the greatest action scenes in the history of cinema wouldn’t be able to save this film.

“Aeon Flux” is the type of movie that if you had a copy of the DVD you wouldn’t bother watching the whole, instead you would likely skip right to the action scenes and skip everything in between them.

It’s movies like this that make me glad it’s December and I can look forward to some quality movies, as opposed to garbage like this.
