This movie appears to be your typical ‘computer taking over the world movie’. The kicker is, you aren’t sure if the computer is really the bad guy or if people are just panicking because they are afraid of the unknown. The question often comes up, how do you prove you are self-aware? Although the actors in the movie never tell you the answer, the ending of the movie does give you enough information that you are able to draw your own conclusion.
The feel of this movie borders on drama rather than science fiction and they tried very hard to give it the aspects of a “real” feel. In the end, it just made for a slow-paced science fiction movie. But the acting is good and the plot will keep you emotionally conflicted. If you are looking for a cheap redbox rental, this movie would make a good pick.
