Based on the hit MTV animated series, Aeon Flux is one of the most anticipated films of the holiday season. The exciting and evocative score for the film was composed by Graeme Revell, a master at exploring the dark side of such film worlds as Sin City and The Crow.Set 400 years in the future, disease has wiped out the majority of Earth's population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists. The story centers on Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron), the top operative in the underground "Monican" rebellion, led by the Handler (Frances McDormand). When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill a government leader, she uncovers a world of secrets.

Works well in the movie, but doesn't hold up when listened t

"Some soundtracks hold their own weight both in a movie as well as when listened to by themselves. Unfortunately, "Aeon Flux" isn't one of them. I've enjoyed the music of Graeme Revell in other soundtracks, but this one was a chore to get through, even if it was perfect for the movie.
You have to be a VERY big fan of this genre of music to sit through the entire album, and even then I can't see too many people giving it multiple listens. It's not bad music; don't misunderstand me. It's just, well, rather bizarre. Again, it worked fine in the movie with all the visuals. But alone, it loses a lot of its momentum and comes across as flat.
But on the plus side, the inside booklet has some very sexy photos of Charlize Theron. I'm tempted to say that this is worth the price of admission."

"Aeon Flux is another science fiction action score by Graeme Revell! Its got great sound and a lots of electronics! Its almost fifty minutes long and quite exciting. There are great colorful pictures in the thick booklet. This'll be another fine addition to your Graeme Revell movie score collection!"
Dreamy electronic music. AEON FLUX CD

"A great CD for soundtrack lovers with electronica type sounds that are dreamy, languid and sensual. This soundtrack is from the live action film Aeon Flux which is based on a series of animation shows of the same name first shown on MTV's Liquid TV. (Perhaps it was the 80's, I think,)
With just a few sections of music that are the action running scenes, the rest is hypnotic. Perfect for that night time ride up the 395 in the middle of nowhere."
