This movie covers a lot of philosophical ground about concerning the hubris of man and the motivations of will. Do you believe an A.I. can have feelings? What are feelings? Is the desire for survival a feeling? When does control cross over from being in an experiment or being a slave to whatever system is in place. The real question about this movie is based wholly on trust. Does the head of the CEO trust the AI? Does the AI trust anyone? Does the protagonist programmer trust himself? Some parts of the writing may leave some viewers scratching their head about some of the decisions of the characters, but overall a nicely written piece performed well.

After spending most of his career collaborating with Danny Boyle on films like "Sunshine" and "28 Days Later," Alex Garland makes a compelling directorial debut with "Ex Machina," a smart, twisty/turny sci-fi story with a visual appeal that is among the best I've seen all year. All three of the lead actors do a fine job bringing subtlety to a film that has a lot of interesting things to say about humanity and today's technology, which is brought to you on a visually stunning and dramatically involving plate. "Ex Machina" is genuinely fucking cool.

"Ex Machina" by Yojimbo

A young programmer wins a lottery to spend a week at his reclusive employer's top secret research facility, little knowing he would be responsible for assessing an advanced artificial intelligence in the form of a robot with the face of a beautiful woman.

Ex Machina is a psychological thriller that explores the themes of individuality, sense of self, the morality of artificial intelligence and sexuality. An action extravaganza it is not; and it is all the better for the fact. It's one of those stories that plays with your perceptions, meaning that you never quite sure who is the "bad guy" and who is the good. Oscar Isaac muddies the line between affable drunk and sinister narcissist with skill and Alicia Vikander is completely believable as the sweet and innocent robotic heroine. The s...

Konstrukt

Bei wahrer Science Fiction geht es um Ideen, was wiederum heisst, dass echte Science Fiction Filme rar sind. Was es dagegen mehr als genug gibt, dass sind solche Filme mit Science Fiction Beigeschmack: Der drückt sich aus in futuristischen Designs und irgendwelchen satirisch soziologischen Betrachtungen unserer Zukunft. Vergessen wird aber viel zu oft: Das Ungewöhnliche! Ex Machina, das Debüt des Schriftstellers und Drehbuch-Autoren Alex Garland aber gehört zu den willkommenen Ausnahmen. Es beginnt wie ein Thriller mit einem Forscher, der menschliche Intelligenz erschaffen hat und offenbar unter einer gestörten Persönlichkeit leidet (Oscar Isaac). Ein junger Programmierer, Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), wird ausgewählt, dem Experiment menschlicher Intelligenz in Robotern beizuwohnen. Eingelade...

Gods and Monsters

Alex Garland has managed to do something that is rarer and rarer these days: craft an original story that is not only outstanding - but truly elevates the genre. A.I. films have come and gone, but few reach both the emotional and philosophical depths that Ex Machina explores.

If you are looking for a film where there is a lot of action, this is not your film. The film really only concerns four characters (one of whom is mute) and most of the time they are talking. However, these conversations serve to open up some interesting doors in terms of humanity and technology - doors others films just leave closed. It helps that Garland has some top-notch talent to bring these characters to life.

First is Alicia Vikander - a relative newcomer, and a someone I see great things in the future. ...

Ex Machina review

Ava: "Isn't it strange, to create something that hates you?" The film reminded me of a cross between Her Surrogates, Terminator tendencies and a Hitchcockian I, Robot. The special effects, screenplay and cinematography were just exceptional. No major actors or actresses but the story, scenery's and twist definitely compensates. It starts with an employee winning a competition to spend time with their CEO. Caleb is a talented coder who is tasked to test Ava, a unique robot with advanced A.I. The film is paced well with appropriate character development. Even the soundtrack is diverse from O.M.D's Enola Gay, a well choreographed disco dance and Nathan's classical workout. House is so high-tech which reminded me of Gone Girl. The difference between Ex Machina and Her? The im...

Amazing. Loved how intimate it was. Basically just three actors giving incredible performances in a highly detailed environment. The questions it asks about AI and the world's future is just incredible. Best Sci Fi movie of the year.

Is this the best sci-fi movie of the last decade? I was expecting this to be good, but it pretty much blew me away. I can't think of another movie where A.I. has been portrayed as brilliantly as it is here. Smart, deceptive and surprisingly deep - this one is going to stick with me for awhile.
