Watch Aeon Flux
- 3 Seasons
Based in a futuristic world that was nearly eradicated by a virus that killed off 99% of the human population, five million survivors remain in Bregna, the last city on Earth, after being cured by a scientist named Trevor Goodchild, whose family ruled for 400 years. Bregna is said to be the height of human civilization, the perfect society, but there are those in the society who know there is more to it then what is perceived. Freedom is something that is almost non-existent in Bregna. The people are manipulated by fear, and the government silently does whatever they want. Rebels, however, refuse to give up their freedom and constantly battle to overthrow the government. They are inspired by the many disappearances of citizens. They are known as the "Monicans". We follow Aeon Flux, a deadly but beautiful assassin haunted by her past who happens to be one of these rebel Monicans. Her constant plight to pick apart and destroy the government of Bregna is evident, and she will stop at nothing to accomplish her goal. Her ability to fight against the odds using acrobatics, weapons, martial arts, and speed makes her almost unstoppable. Aeon Flux is a highly violent, intriguing, and strange series that may certainly go against the moral standards of some. Between the peculiar sexual occurrences and the skimpily dressed main character, it is hard to say this is a series that is directed at children. That being said, the controversial adult animated series is one that will capture the hearts of many men, and, maybe even some women. It is unique and somewhat "kiddy" in a sense of it's artistic appearance and musical interpretation, but concisive in a sense of what it is truly about; blood, violence, and politics. While I wouldn't turn your kids on to this one, it is definitely a series that is interesting and would definitely attract adults who enjoy their occasional violent animated series. This is a solid show and will keep you at the edge of your seat as the events occur throughout.
