Synopsis

Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer, is sent to a remote facility when he's given the job of evaluating his company CEO Nathan's (Oscar Isaac) experiment in artificial intelligence - a robot named Ava (Alicia Vikander).

What was supposed to be a routine check turns into much more when Caleb forms a friendship with Ava, who raises doubts as to whether anything Nathan says can be trusted. For his part, Nathan questions Ava's motives, and Caleb begins to wonder if he's doing the testing or if he's being tested himself.

  • 5 stars "Excellent film, written and directed superbly. Soundtrack is entrancing. Not for the ADD generation -that requires constant bombardment by Michael Bay explosions or eye melting Abrams lens flares. If your mind is clouded by the misogynistic undertones, you probably lack the depth required to appreciate the film's true meaning."
  • 5 stars "A unique and fascinating sci-fi movie with beautiful cinematography and engaging visual effects. The enigmatic behaviour between the four main characters is complimented by an effectively hypnotic soundtrack. The pace of the plot during most of the movie sets up for an impactful and thought-provoking ending. This movie is worthy of repeated viewings, especially on Bluray."
  • 5 stars "Awesome Movie! Definitely thought provoking on how humanity will have to look forward to our behaviour and ethics between Artificial Intelligence and existance."
