Human meets AI. Human falls in love. It's the same old New Age story, though a bit more empathic than Ex Machina, and a bit more savage, too. Also more detective fiction than futuristic sci-fi action.
It feels a bit like Blade Runner, with a girl like Motoko from Ghost In The Shell, and a man the embodiment of her power... sort of.
Dystopian soundtrack, cyberpunk zone, not that much violence, heavy dialog... it's atmospheric, this one.
Not the brightest, not the happiest; not one I'm sure I'll watch again, but if I do and I like it as much as I did this time I just might give it a five next time around
Travis Fimmel's God speech went a little overboard maybe, but everything else is great. The main characters played by Guy Pearce and Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz were masterful. Olwen Fouéré was like a female Anthony Hopkins too. Powerful characters all around.
And I really like that girl in particular.
Ironic both David and his employer lose their girls... and replace them with synthetics. Cure for a lonely world indeed.
rated 4.5/5: almost awesome
