The unfortunate star: Charlize Theron

An action-adventure flick starring Charlize Theron in skintight black latex? You don't have to be a kinky fetishist to get excited by that sales pitch, and when you consider that Aeon Flux was based on the popular MTV animated series, it's must-see status heightens even further.

But despite Theron's surprisingly nimble athleticism and knack for executing dangerous stunts and snappy fight choreography, Aeon Flux is a stylistic action misfire on par with Milla Jovovich's Ultraviolet, or, gasp, Halle Berry's Catwoman.
