Aeon Flux

A live-action version of the MTV animated series, set in the postapocalyptic year 2415. I couldn’t get very involved in the plot, but this is fairly enjoyable camp, and the snazzy visual design includes sets that evoke Antonio Gaudi and southern California bunker architecture. There’s also the grand spectacle of Charlize Theron in a cat suit as the title character, tangling with all sorts of other divas (male and female, black and white) while mussing up her perfect hairdo only slightly toward the end. Karyn Kusama (Girlfight) directed; with Marton Csokas, Sophie Okonedo, Frances McDormand, and Pete Postlethwaite (in the Alec Guinness part). PG-13, 93 min. (JR)
