Excellent film. Great story nicely told! Took a little while for characters to unfold, but that was 'cause we were along for these first experiences with them. Acting was truthful and interesting- I was engaged the whole movie. Nice directing and editing, some music was 80ish electronic synth and fit perfectly.

It's i robot and ex machinea put into one movie with a lot of emphases on robots trying to feel emotions. it also has the acting is hit and miss, lack luster action sequences and cheesy cgi.

This movie had a lot of potential and I think it held most of it up. I believe the plot summary misrepresents it and might wrongly set expectations. It's an incredibly slick and stylish film with, what I believe, to be incredible practical and CGI effects for the time. All the actors sell their characters well, the production makes the setting believable, and the plot doesn't get too high brow like other sci-fi movies. I think it's more a drama thriller with horror elements rather than an out and out horror. However, I feel like the film is unintentionally offbeat sometimes. Whether it be in moments of dialogue, tone, or jumping around to the different plot points. There's also a lot going on that doesn't have much context, which can be fun, but feels annoying in its abundance and sense of importance. But all in all, it's worth a watch.
