This is another special feature on the Æon Flux DVD, and in case it still eludes you after reading the title of it, in its massive, overwhelming intricacy and subtlety, this one's about locations. Locations used in shooting the film. After wasting two minutes or so telling us about a location that they wound up not using at all, this plods along further as they detail what they *did* wind up using, going over a number of them and showing us behind-the-scenes footage(and similarly candid material of the locations, showing a single clip of the original show and employing interviews), this definitely wasn't all that interesting or entertaining of a featurette. It comes to fifteen minutes, with credits, but it moves much too slowly, and tells you too little, managing to be simultaneously overlong and too short. There's a native German speaker herein, but fear not, subtitles to the rescue. Not particularly thorough ones, but hey, beggars can't be choosers. My DVD claimed to feature "5 amazing shorts"(not why I got it, don't worry, also, it was a gift), allow me to remove the curtain and affording you a gander; this is one of them. All five are just featurettes. Nothing more. Don't let them fool you. I recommend this to people who want to know more about the locations, and those who just must scratch the itch of "where on Earth did they shoot that"(no, they didn't leave the planet, not to my knowledge), and it certainly does good to be very patient and/or tolerant. 6/10
