Ex Machina – Movie Review

I watched this movie upon recommendation from the lovely Shannon A. Thompson – yes, the young lovely author of The Timely Death Trilogy – about a month ago.

At first I thought that the movie would challenge me to guess the next move or something. Can you believe the disappointment I’ve had ?! Well, the movie is good, there’s no point in denying it but IT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER !

The whole point – or should I say idea – of the movie is about a young programmer – named Caleb – who’s working for Bluebook, one of the world’s most popular search engines. He is being called out by Nathan, the company’s CEO, who ultimately reveales to him that he’s been working on an artificial intelligence prototype – an AI – named Ava. Caleb is the one, who is put to test Ava through the Turning Test. A test will reveal if  Ava can relate or not to her being an AI.

From this point on, the connection between Caleb and Ava grows and he finds out that she wants to escape with him. During their daily tests, Ava turns out the power and tells Caleb things that are not quite that good, about Nathan.

From here, the puzzle pieces, all fall into place and you can actually determine what Caleb’s next step is. Quite predictable, in fact. What actually leaves you dumbfounded, is the ending – which I will not reveal, that remains for you to see ( In Case You Haven’t Seen the movie ).

Giving Out The Movie Stars 

Unfortunately…From me in my own POV this movie doesn’t get any more than just 3 stars. Sorry !!!
I love robot movies. I really do. And If things weren’t so damn predictable, I would have given it more but given the circumstances…I simply cannot.


About Cristina

I started this blog for quite a few reasons: 1. To share my opinions about books I read. (I'm open to recommendations) 2. To express myself in the only way that I love,which is of course writing 3. To connect with people with whom I may share the same interests I read and write because it offers me an escape door from the world we live in. A door which allows me to be whomever I want to be, live wherever in this big world,set off on adventures and most of all because it brings my imagination back to life from its very very long sleep. And of course...Because I love to !! Here are some basic things about your host and writer.. My name is Cristina and I come from Bucharest ( also known as The Little Paris ) were I was born, raised and am currently - still - living. I’ve finished my studies a few years ago and got my bachelor degree at Dimitrie Cantemir University, in my hometown; in Economics. I have to admit that this specialty wasn't my first choice. I have been weighing my choices – as in, to what they can provide me in future – both while I was still in high school and after. Initially I wanted to go to Foreign Languages, but I had a big fall the moment I saw that it wasn't acredited – huge disappointment washed over me. I am still a bit disappointed about that to be honest. I have a huge passion for writing ever since I was little, and even if I had times when I didn't (or couldn't) write anything, now I am right back on track. My dad is the only one who knows how much passion I put into what I write and doesn't giggle or grin when I bring it up. I love having someone’s support no matter how little it is,it still means so much to me. Love, Cris ♥ Hope that those who will follow me like what I post around here and - why not - maybe give some ideas about new topics. :) If anyone wants to add something on the blog please contact me at cristinacryss0@gmail.com
