File Under: Watched It For The Lady
Read a lot of reviews calling this awful. If you believe that, you have never truly seen awful. True, it's not overly tense and fairy obvious from the start what you're going to get but who in their right mind watches a movie like this with expectations beyond that?
I enjoyed having my brain occupied for ~90 min. Mediocrity and awful are not synonymous.
If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.
Must see for anyone. Period.
I saw this alone so there was no moment to converse openly about the implications of the Singularity and what it means to be conscious and "alive" - worthwhile topics evoked by this.
Rather amazing CG and great performances all around. I read a lot of reviews having issue with the machine being female and, thus, automatically a fetish object... Not so sure about that myself. It may say more about the reviewer than the film implies. Tho I guess that's another topic best wrestled when viewed with others.
