Ouch…

Aeon Flux did not fare well with the critics. It scored a horrific 14% on RottenTomatoes – almost unanimously panned.

Some choice quotes:

1/4 “Charlize Theron has her Oscar. Now she has her Catwoman.”
— David Frese, KANSAS CITY STAR

.5/4 “A thoroughly awful and unusually incoherent piece of work.”
— David Nusair, REEL FILM REVIEWS

D “Not even the sight of Theron in stylized bondage gear can atone for the muddled story, hackneyed action, and dulled-down effects.”
— Rob Vaux, FLIPSIDE MOVIE EMPORIUM

0.5/5 “It was so uncomfortable to watch this film, I felt like I was desperately holding back a bout of extreme diarrhea while having dinner with my girlfriend's folks for the first time.”
— Kevin Carr, 7M PICTURES

2/10 “To put it succinctly 'Aeon Flux' sucks!”
— Jackie K. Cooper, JACKIEKCOOPER.COM

“Even worse than Catwoman… If you are compiling a Ten Worst of the Year list, Aeon is a must-see. Otherwise, your time would be better spent doing just about anything else.”
— James Sanford, KALAMAZOO GAZETTE

“Personally, after her amazing performance in Monster, I prefer the ugly Charlize Theron.”
— Christopher Smith, BANGOR DAILY NEWS (MAINE)

.5/5 “Theron is fetching enough in her tight outfits, but utters each line like she just downed a handful of quaaludes.”
— Pete Vonder Haar, FILM THREAT

0/4 “Aeon Flux is by far the year's worst movie, a most dubious achievement.”
— Lou Lumenick, NEW YORK POST

1/4 “Thanksgiving is over, but those gluttons still hungry for turkey should enjoy picking at the carcass of Aeon Flux.”
— Wesley Morris, BOSTON GLOBE

F “You know a sci-fi action film is failing when even the outfits are bad.”
— E! ONLINE

1.5/4 “The waste of talent and money thrown into this cheesy, haphazard production should be a criminal offense the world over.”
— Dustin Putman, THEMOVIEBOY.COM

3/4 “Aeon Flux isn't about how cool or weird or geeky it can be, but about the potential endgame of a contemporary social debate, and that is its best asset.”
— Mark Collette, TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH (TEXAS)

p.s. Mark Collette, you are soooooo screwed.
