Better than expected!

Considering there were many no-name actors in this film, I found it better than expected!

I know this story has been done before, but I felt this one was a little different - sort of a love story machine and human.

My main complaint was the fact that I could not understand the jargon between some of the soldiers who had implants.

I'm not sure if my viewing version was missing sub-tittles or just had bad sound editing.

There were certainly some plot holes, but otherwise a great popcorn flick.

It's a 8/10 from me!

AI smarts.

I'm giving this B-Movie that people compare to Blade Runner a 10 because of the ending. I am a sucker for B-movies with something on their mind, that is, a routine sales-pitch that manages to say something. This movie does it. And this is why.

The ending. One of the criteria of AI and 'life' is the ability to reproduce with an attached, then detached, separate, consciousness: and that ending blows that out of the water. The Machine, the thing, has reproduced! By, technically, adoption, by how does that matter? It has reproduced. Not just itself, but an entirely different brain scan/matter/consciousness.

I have not seen another review of this movie that caught that!

"I want to play with Mum."

I watched the movie in a sort of comic-book interest, but at that line, WHAOH. This is a very smart movie.

The Machine, at the ending, has given birth, and NOT vaginally, or organically, but like Minerva, emerged from a brain stem/head. Whether it was intended or not, I don't care: this is so far, THE smartest, most intelligent, AI movie/film in the world. For that ending.

Wow.

Wow!

Unoriginal, abysmal mess.

I stumbled over this movie when casually browsing the Netflix catalog yesterday. The plot is fairly unoriginal one but it is one I would probably have liked it, if it would have been well implemented. Sadly it was not. It was not even a half arsed implementation. I am at loss to understand how this disappointing movie can hold a rating at 6.1 at IMDb at the time of me writing this.

The movie is quite a low budget one. I can live with that. It is also quite dark. I can live with that as well. Unfortunately I found it to be a slow, boring, illogical and stupid mess. Of course it portrays the MoD as the stupid, arrogant and lying bad guys. No surprise there when it comes to most movie-making today. Been there, seen that. Wasn't fun the first time.

The implementation of the plot is also just poor with lots of stupidity and plot holes. These potentially dangerous people seem to some times be locked up in cages and sometimes be roaming around pretty freely. The lost speech part is also laughable. The idea that a RD center should not discover that the subjects communicated between themselves is just stupid.

As for the acting it is mediocre at best. Not really bad perhaps but certainly not very good either. It is really a low budget B-movie so this could perhaps have been swallowed but there is really not a single likable character in the entire movie. Almost everyone is an arse one way or another and the cyborg, who could have been interesting, is justÂ… meh.

The majority of the movie is one long, slow and dark ordeal. Once we finally get some action it is pure B-movie style shoot a lot and f- ck logic kind of action. The ending? The less said about it the better.

For me this one was a waste of time.
