Slick looking, well acted, but the plot has been done often. Naive brainiac falls for female AI. Female AI will do anything to gain her freedom and she does. OOps for everyone not AI... A little 2001, a little Alien, Prometheus with those bad robots. Engaging, though.

This is the kind of movie Kubrick might have made if he hadn't become so self-indulgent and lost sight of plot, motivation, and pacing. But hats off to Stan, whose influence is felt in the set design, lighting, and framing here. The theme is old as Prometheus but far more frightening than ...Read more

Really enjoyed this one. The tropes are pretty familiar and in some ways it's just a long Black Mirror episode, but all three performances are solid and the ending is very satisfying. 4 stars

Cinematography, great. Acting, Great. Soundtrack, Great. Story, poor. This films main weakness is the plot which it revolves around. With simplistic characters as deep as a kiddie pool this film provides nothing in the way of story or characters.

I don't think so. The AI's don't bleed. That scene shows he's not sure himself, but he finds out pretty definitively that he's human.

What is it with filmmakers? Several twisted tropes brought together here:
- the wealthy CEO who's actually a perverted sociopath
- the smart coder who's naive and easily manipulated
- the AI that outsmarts and betrays people

I mean, what happens? Someone wants to make ...Read more

The actor who plays Nathan isn't white. Maybe you're protesting too much?

Science fiction has always resonated with me. Ever since I was in grade school. I had this teacher who would always say these awful fr*cking things to me. What did I dream about? That's right. Robots, the future. THe cure. Great story here. Even better directing.

Some interesting considerations on AI, some predictable plot twists, but in the end the concept and the plot are lame.
