Buy it... if you enjoy hard-ass electronica rhythms and Graeme Revell's usual, heavy industrial sound design.

Avoid it... if a score inspired by MTV and aimed at the same audience is not your cup of tea.

Revell
Revell
Aeon Flux: (Graeme Revell) When a studio denies screenings for critics on a project as highly advertised as Aeon Flux, you know that something is wrong. A few notable exceptions have popped up over the years (Psycho being the best known), but for the most part, studios have little interest in treating critics to screenings of films that they know are downright awful. And while Aeon Flux may never be found in those "world's worst films" categories, it been thoroughly slapped around by those critics who went ahead and viewed it. One critic had the outstanding response of saying that the film is "as enjoyable as acid reflux." Based on the animated MTV series, the film's story is set 400 years in the future and tells us that the remaining 5 million or so people who have survived a terrible disease are confined to one city, and that city is controlled by one powerful family. Inevitably, of course, people want outside of the walls of the city, and a supertechno assassin is dispatched by these rebels to kill off the people holding their curiosity in check. The film includes some interesting ideas about future technologies, and has a compelling take on the memories of clones, but let's be as plain and clear about this story as possible: it exists so that we can watch and enjoy Charlize Theron's body in a tight, black-leather jumpsuit while it performs acrobatic moves and kicks necessary ass. Given its origins on MTV, it's no surprise that a techno-score is the order of the day, and sound design film score veteran Graeme Revell would be a perfect fit for this project. One of Revell's most flashy and independent scores is the sci-fi thriller Red Planet, which treated the futuristic setting of exploration with operatic vocals over hard rock rhythms. Recently, in 2005, Revell has scored a variety of urban and techno-themed films, including the electronic remake score for The Fog. His work for Robert Rodriguez for both Sin City and the atrocious Sharkboy and Lavagirl was overshadowed in both cases by John Debney's superior contributions to those scores.
