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.

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.

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.

This film is done very well, different, intriguing and haunting to ones senses

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