Originally appearing as a number of animated shorts on MTV's Liquid Television in 1995, Aeon Flux had too much juice to merely tag along and soon became a freestanding TV series (before, in turn, becoming a feature film). The title character, well voiced by Denise Poirier, flies through time and space - and kicks serious digital ass. The pictures on the ten episodes in this three-disc Director's Cut Edition have been remastered from the original negatives under the supervision of creator Peter Chung. Animation usually looks good on DVD, but these images explode with color and are always beautifully crisp. The Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack delivers lots of surround-channel action and punchy bass throughout. A full disc of extras includes a commentary by the extremely talkative Chung and his far less verbose cast and crew. You also get two featurettes and the original Liquid Television shorts that spawned the series. [TV-MA] English, Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Surround; full frame (1.33:1); three dual-layer discs.
