I feel like this is a good film with good effect but it leans more on its profound and somewhat disturbing ideas more then anything else. I’m glad to say. It’s about AI. Will it be good for us or will it destroy us? Ex Machina really gets you thinking. With only 3 characters in the film. It gets its message across well. It’s not the type of movie I would pay, i would rather free download the movie. But i will never think that “wow I gotta re-watch that over and over.” For me it’s a one and done type of film. But I am glad I watched it. I was intrigued and on the edge of my seat throughout.
It keeps you there by its ideas, not with lots of fast paced action scenes like I, Robot.(2004), this is a film that doesn’t force it’s own conclusions down your throat. You get the feeling you have to figure out what’s right. Although it does give a twist at the end. Which tells you what may be the safer option when it comes to AI. I’d recommend it. … Nathan: “One day the AIs are going to look back on us the same way we look at fossil skeletons on the plains of Africa. An upright ape living in dust with crude language and tools, all set for extinction.”
In short one I the most beautiful movies I have ever watched. Every single shot is crafted with utmost attention to detail, and it is absolutely stunning. The visual effects are absolutely fantastic, and nearly unparalleled. So many different ideas can be taken away from this movie. This is a beautifully crafted masterpiece of cinema.
