Ex Machina : Rise of the Machine

Isn’t it strange, to create something that hates you? – AVA

The rise of artificial intelligence has been a hot button topic since the days of the Cray-1 supercomputer. As we advance further into our Orwellian future, scientists will design greater and greater machines. However many scientist fear that at some point a day of reckoning approaches and the machines wage war on humanity.

Yea…I know, it sounds crazy, but science-fiction can often become regular science if left in the hands of a genius engineer. Insert “Nathan” (played by Osacar Isaac) a brilliant scientist who has masterd the ‘art’ of programming artificial intelligence. However not everyone is capable of compartmentalizing the difference between God and creation. Insert “Caleb” (played by Domhnall Gleeson) who quickly realizes the sinister nature of his boss and feels compelled to do the right thing. The only problem is figuring out what is “right”, and who is “wrong”.

Who would you trust?….Would you choose to help the sexy soul-less android or the evil genius that created her?…. Caught between a rock and a hard place Caleb finds himself in a deadly situation.

Drawing many similarities to the classic “Dr. Frankenstein” story, ExMachina is a great new age film about the dangers of playing God. If you haven’t already checked out this movie make sure you catch it on DVD later this summer.

    1. Definitely one of the best films to premiere so far in 2015… It seems to be flying under the radar right now, but it has the feel of a cult classic moving forward.

      Great acting too…matter fact, casting no huge A-list actors made the story have a more authentic feel on the big screen
