The singularity theme, in its robot vs humankind-phobia exploit has probably never produced such an interesting film. The Matrix Trilogy is cool, but mainly as a concept and because of its visual production. Automata is, surprisingly, good cinema. Good screenplay and cinematography. And an original atmosphere, at times feeling like a mix of Neill Blomkamp's robots and 1984's opressive bureaucracy and gray city life.
So many robots, so many stories about robots, but really it's the same story over and over again. Let's worry in advance about sentience, even though we're not sure it's even possible. Don't they call that borrowing trouble?
Good Spanish sci-fi B movie which is a lot more interesting than the US actual production in the genre. And how come not to be thankful to a film that pays homage to the man who invented all there is to know about automats: Isaac Asimov. Recommended.
Trama non male con uno sviluppo riuscito ed alcune svolte non banali. Però tutto risulta troppo derivativo da altri film, senza aggiungere nulla, anche dal lato estetico. Buoni il protagonista e alcuni personaggi. Regia non male, ma con momenti scadenti, soprattutto nella parte finale, dai toni troppo religiosi. Belle ambientazioni ed alcune inquadrature interessanti, pur sapendo di già visto. Colonna sonora mediocre
I really enjoyed this film's concept of AI. We are mostly seeing of AI films the idea that intelligence is about emotions, and basically the machines want to replicate us humans - it was a different take on AI that doesn't evolve around human perceived intelligence. Really enjoyed their DIY repairs, their learning & trust of humans with sad consequences. Were some icky moments + ending was obvious but worth watching
Sa già tutto di visto,da Scott a Blomgkamp,farcito di Dick e Asimov e quindi nel genere ci sta benissimo grazie anche ad un'ottima messa in scena. Peccato che dopo una mezz'oretta tutto diventi complicato,lo script apre venti sottotrame diverse e il rapporto uomo-macchina diventa da terza elementare.Cmq la cosa più brutta del film è la Griffith,una vera schifosa plastificata. Non è brutto, ma non resta impresso.
Why the hate? Yeah, some of the CGI was a bit janky and the ending sequence was laughable in it's logic but the I really liked the concept, the performance were good (aside from Melanie Griffith) and the overall payoff was solid. It ended as it should've.
