Same old law of robotics, somewhat different twist. I love the opening showing the public enthusiastic and cheering the robot army meant to stem off the encroaching desert that is swallowing humanity - only to show them turning against them when, of course, this savior of humanity fails spectacularly. Now the world is crawling with robots who are breaking down, along with the world around them, and things go form bad to worse when apparently one of them starts to think for itself (which is supposed to be impossible). Not quite enough heart or deep enough story to make it anything other than average - but at least it brings an interesting take on a familiar story.

"Automata" by Yojimbo

An insurance investigator from the world's leading robotics manufacturer stumbles upon a case in which the robots seem to be experiencing self awareness. Is this a result of a rogue engineer modifying their products, or something else...? Anyone who has seen more than a couple of sci-fi films over the years will no doubt already have worked out the answer to that question in this near future tale that bears more than a passing resemblance to I, Robot. Other "inspirations" are also obvious, the early scenes showing a desperate yearning to be Blade Runner and the metaphysical nature of the plot echoes much of the science fiction of the 1970s. A shaven-headed Antonio Banderas makes a suitably confused and desperate protagonist although Tim McInnerny's villain lacks the menace requi...

A pure SF

“To die, you got to be alive first.”

The future of our beloved planet doesn't look rosy as Hollywood presents it lately. After a random grab in the bag of apocalyptic films of the last year, you'll get a wide choice of possible misery and disasters that mankind has to endure. In "Elysium" we have an ultra overpopulated Earth whose natural resources have been exhausted and where the super rich have gotten a place on the space station Elysium where they live in luxury. "The Giver" is about a society that after a great war live in communes where feelings and memories are banished. "The Colony" and "Snowpiercer" show a world covered with snow caused by failed experiments to get the climate under control. In "Oblivion" there was a long war w...

More Tinkering Needed

'Automata' is the kind of sci-fi movie that ponders big ideas through means of exploring new technology. The focus here is on the evolution of man vs the evolution of the on-screen robots. Certain lines of dialogue sum up the intent in an intelligent and easily deciphered manner. However, the film continuously shows us these points in long scenes of repeated ramblings, or obvious quiet symbolism from the robots. This is a slow burn that drags and stretches it's simple plot to the point of breakage. The beginning is a good draw, with it's mystery element, but a half hour in that is resolved and things trudge onward. The rest hits all the beats of the usual 'robot finds a conscious' story I've seen done the exact same way many times. The bits of intended emotion are needlessly tacked...

robots and humanity are we so different

Set in the future, the earth is drying up and robots are designed to obey humans, but when its found a robot has been repairing himself as free will antonio banderas is sent to investigate. have robots evolved like humnas did? or did someone manage to re program them somehow ?
This is a decent/good movie it has the look and feel of bade runner with the comparisons to i robot.
antonio banderas is really good and completely different both looks and acting wise than i have seen him before. hopefully he can get some big roles after this movie as he is more than good enough to tackle something serious and great,
while i would of liked a much more bigger story and action i did like the feel look and style of this movie. it has a nice ending. and does make you think about evolution
worth w...
