"Ex Machina" is directed by Alex Garland, also known as a writer for "28 Days later" and "Sunshine". Domhnall Gleeson stars as Caleb, Oscar Isaac stars as Nathan, and Alicia Vikander as Ava.
Nathan tasks Caleb with engaging Ava in a test in order to determine whether his AI (artificially intelligent) creation can think and act like a human. As you might expect in a film about a young man, a charming robot girl, and a billionaire with a god complex locked up in a high-tec bunker, things will start to go wrong. Movie has American characters and settings but a very European feel. Film was shot in Norway and at the Pinewood studios. Ex Machina is old-fashioned, grown-up science-fiction and it is a stylish throwback to 1970s movies such as "Demon Seed" and "Westworld" and cleverly plays on fears that robots will make all of us "out of date".
