Ex Machina


Ex Machina is a masterpiece of the modern science fiction thriller/artificial intelligence film genre, with special effects which are second to none. It is one of the best of its kind to be released in some time.

Cleverly written and directed by Alex Garland and starring the extremely talented Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander and Oscar Isaac, Ex Machina delves into the psyche of both man and artificially intellectual machines alike and poses some big questions as to what is and isn't ethical in terms of power relationships and the responsibility associated with creating artificial intelligence and even life itself.

The film follows the story of Caleb, an average, young computer programmer who is lucky enough to win a sweepstakes, in which he gets to be one of the very few people to get to meet his illusive billionaire of a boss, who was the creator of a search engine, more popular and efficient than even Google!

Sex appeal takes on a whole new meaning in Ex Machina
He soon find himself being whisked away, via helicopter to a remote property, surrounded by miles of wilderness and filled with futuristic technology, where he finally gets to meet his strange, quirky, hilarious and sometimes down right creepy boss.

There, Caleb meets a beautiful female "robot", who he is asked to do a series of social experiments on, but soon he begins to wonder who is really experimenting on who!



Ex Machina will keep you guessing right up until the last minute and leave you with a twist, which, in the best way possible, will hopefully not get a sequel!

Ex Machina is rated MA 15 for strong themes, violence, sexual references and nudity.

9.5/10
