Ex Machina (2015)


Domhnall Gleeson
Alicia Vikander
Oscar Isaac

Directed by Alex Garland

If man desire for a future with A.I. that will be so advanced it will function independently and will be confused for a human, that future is near. The way movies paint such a future I guess we are in line for a hostile takeover from the machines. Ex machina explores that possible future and it does so with so much style, you the viewer will be as lost for what is happening as the men involved.

I guess that suspense for what the real motive for developing such a magnificent A.I. in isolation was what drove to me to see this film to the end. It was intriguing none the less; you wouldn’t want to miss the sessions between the A.I. and her interviewer Caleb.

In the movie we have a company named Bluebook the world’s most popular search engine, which in a way seemed like Google. The company (well the owner) makes use of people’s search history and preferences to develop his android.
Here is a movie about the future where you will be expecting some high graphics and visual effects, but the movie played more on delivering a powerful script, which will keep you on your seat as you watch things unfold gently, making you wonder what is going on.
But none regardless, with a $15 million production budget the movie/makers delivered a smooth cool visual effect of the androids in the movie.

Written and directed by Alex Garland (Dredd (2012)) Ex Machina is about a high intellect programmer who invited one of his employees (Caleb) who is also a programmer to administer the Turing test (The Turing test is a test of a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behavior equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. - Wikipedia) to an android he developed with artificial intelligence.

The android Caleb was interviewing has the features of a woman and during the tests, started to display affection and other forms of emotions confusing Caleb to think she was programmed to do so.
Things took an odd turn when the android named Ava, told Caleb that his employer isn't telling him the whole truth about the test and shouldn’t be trusted.

This began a sub-plot in the plot and more twists that will leave you gasping in awe at the unpredictable ending awaiting you.

Ex Machina is a great movie and one I will recommend you see when you have the time.
