Automata

Automata ★★★½

Interesting and well made dystopian scifi that has a couple of really nice ideas and great robots but never really goes any real lengths to tell its story. Instead we get that staple of 80:s scifiaction, a showdown with men in long coats wielding shotguns - and the main baddie is Lord Percy from Blackadder! Still, a very nice try and Antonio Banderas is great in the lead role. Melanie Griffith on the other hand looks more artificial in her five minute cameo than the entire crew of automatons.
