Product description

With an impoverished world plunged into a Cold War with a new enemy, Britain's Ministry of Defence is on the brink of developing a game-changing weapon. Lead scientist Vincent McCarthy (Toby Stephens) provides the answer with his creation, The Machine - an android with unrivalled physical and processing skills. When a programming glitch causes an early prototype to destroy his lab, McCarthy enlists artificial intelligence expert Ava (Caity Lotz) to help him harness the full potential of a truly conscious fighting machine.

If this had been a Russian film –made 30 years earlier- it would have been hailed as a masterpiece: well, actually, the good news is –it is a masterpiece!

This is a highly intelligent and inventive movie –and scripted to a dialogue that will sharpen our wits. The theme is Artificial Intelligence; androids; and a simmering, but distant threat of war between China and the West: we have a script for a very fine film.

‘The Machine’ is a movie that takes us into a sinister and violent journey into the unknown, but is grounded in life surviving thoughts of mortality, leading to love and possibly compassion? It is very much a cult film belonging to British ownership, with an enjoyable sense of dark humour: A highly entertaining movie in a futuristic style of an early Russian masterpiece of film making?

The theme of the film will generate the horror of what is probably going to happen in anticipation of this story....and will ponder the question of the likely winners and losers of control....from war-torn and brain damaged soldiers –to the experiments liken to Frankenstein and The Borg.....the soldiers of misfortune will try to engage in conversation, and those who do, will only speak in despair: they are imprisoned and treated like lab rats?

The scientists, Vincent and Ava will have no fear of adventure and discovery, but they may have agendas of their own fancy –but Ava is different and a brilliant, new scientist –she could potentially be more dangerous than the principle chief - a character that is wonderfully played in confidence and polished style by Denis Lawson........Vincent and Ava are charismatically played by Toby Stephens and Caity Lotz respectively – they remind me of Mulder and Scully ( from the X Files ) ....buzzing and engaging....

I always approach SciFi from a 'plausibility of the plot' and rigour of the 'science point of view'.

The theme of this movie is well worn - with people turned into cyborgs with a 'hive mind' - the corruption of innocent and inherently good machine being tainted by man - the transfer of a dying child into a computer and so on. And as the 'evil' establishment tries to retain control, one man decides this is time for homo-sapiens MkII to start taking over. And of course, these part mankind part machine beings lack some human qualities. Non-the-less I found it engaging and entertaining but with no real surprises.

Brilliant film, thought it may be a copy of Ex Machina, but it's not. Maybe a little violent for some, however a good story left open for a hopeful sequel.
