Review : Ex-Machina

ex-machina-poster-2

“A young programmer is selected to participate in a breakthrough experiment in artificial intelligence by evaluating the human qualities of a breathtaking female A.I.”

This movie is really something special. The first thing I need to say is that  Alicia Vikander is absolutely brilliant in this movie. Her portrayal of this supposedly sentient female robot is truly a sight to behold. That isn’t to say her co-stars aren’t good, but she really does steal the show for me, which is really good cause she is such an integral part of convincing you to buy what this movie is selling. What is that you may ask? It asks you the viewer, to really ask some interesting and complex questions. Questions that the movie gives you enough information to really discuss, but it leaves enough for you to create your own ideas, and draw your own conclusions. This movie also looks amazing, like I mean truly you never once doubt any of the visuals or anything you are seeing. Couple that with the fact that this movie has a sub 20 million dollar budget, the effects are even that more impressive. So this movie is pretty much brilliant all around. Amazing acting, wonderful visuals, great editing and pacing, superb special effects, and an indebt and interesting narrative that makes you ask questions and start discussion. I can’t recommend this movie is enough for anyone who is a fan of intelligent film making.

Review Score : 9 out of 10
