“Where are we now?”
Let me just say, rarely do I see films like this one that really challenge our minds and intellect. This is a film that really raises some ethical questions about the human race and its impact and affect on artificial intelligence. (I don’t want to spoil it for you, but let’s just say it’s similar in nature to this movie).
This is a film that makes you think and question what it will be like in the future. The above quote sums it all. Though, I would like to add in addition we should also be asking ourselves the question, “Who are we now?”
It seems like the human race has come a long way advancing technology. But, at what cost? At what point do we say, enough is enough. And, who determines what is right and wrong?
Sometimes advancements in technology can go too far. And, when things go too far there are serious consequences.
I really enjoyed this film from beginning to end. It kept my attention throughout the movie. I especially liked the twists and turns with the plot, which really surprised me. (If you’ve seen the film, you’ll know what I’m talking about).
Also, I enjoyed the special effects and the music in the film. There were a few scary images (especially in the beginning), which I really liked as well. (Note: If you’ve seen the film, I highly encourage you to watch the Q & A sessions about the film
(in the “Special Features” section), with the filmmaker, Duncan Jones, as it will help to answer questions about certain elements of the movie).
Overall, I really liked this film. It is a bit slow paced, it is not an action movie. Though, I liked the story and the way it challenged questions about humankind – it really made me think.
If you’re in the mood for a sci-fi type of film, I highly recommend this one. Check it out!
Happy movie watching!
