Ex MachinaEx Machina is a movie about robots and artificial intelligence. Computer programmer Caleb Smith wins a company-wide competition which entitles him to spend a week with the CEO of their search engine company at his private estate located in a remote mountain. Their CEO Nathan Bateman is brilliant but reclusive, a cocky genius that dared to play God.

The intent of the competition is to select someone to be the human component of an experiment called Turing Test; to evaluate the capabilities of a robot with artificial intelligence Ex Machina 2and determine if the robot has consciousness. The robot takes the form of a human and named Ava, a seemingly perfect robot that has emotional intelligence and sophistication Nathan and Caleb could have imagine.

Ex Machina has shades of Stepford Wives but is it far more stylish and sophisticated. It has a great plot and the story is flawlessly written and very well told and it does not make you wonder what is happening. The story is told in a way that it is eerie slow but keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Ex Machina 3On the technical side, the women as robots especially Ava is worth the price of the ticket; the computer lights inside their bodies are fantastic and looks believable. The location is magnificent as well with the modern concrete and glass building built on the sides of a mountain.

    The cinematography, way of telling the story and acting are all excellent. But the plot is nothing very original and we have seen it before though a few tweaks are done to the plot to make it interesting. Very interesting movie.

    It has a very simple yet very clever story telling and all the characters are very interesting and most are very well developed. It is a very good movie about AI and how man is pushing for technology which I think is too far to the edge which may kill humanity.
