Ex Machina Review

Preface

  • Ex Machina is a 2015 movies about this guy played by Domhnall Gleeson who wins a trip to a luxurious lab in the middle of nowhere.
  • And at this lab, there’s one shady inventor played by Oscar Isaac who’s invented a fully functioning A.I.!
  • And this whole movie is Gleeson kinda testing out the A.I., seeing if it works.
  • And it’s a really fascinating movie!

Review

  • Right off the bat, all the performances in this movie are awesome.
  • My favorite was Alicia Vikander, who played the actual A.I. I the movie named Ava.
  • She easily could have turned into (pun intended) a robotic, stiff character who’s just kinda there.
  • But she didn’t.
  • Without spoiling it, you understand why this character acts the way she does.
  • Gleeson and Isaac were also great in the movie, but what I loved more than the individuals was the two of them together.
  • These two guys were really interesting to see have conversations together, because they’re both smart guys. Seeing smart people talk in a way that you understand is never a bad thing!
  • I liked Gleeson’s interactions with Vikander too, that was a highlight, and beyond the acting, this movie had a really good vibe going for it too.
  • The movie definitely felt like it was a bit Frankenstein-esque, with some familiar parts from other movies.
  • But it executes those familiar parts in a way that still keeps you hooked.
  • You’re never bored in this movie, which is a real tribute to the screenwriter and director, who created something that felt like a really efficient (not cheesy) episode of Black Mirror or The Twilight Zone.
  • My only other complaint with the movie–and this is gonna be hilarious.
  • I wish it was longer!
  • This movie clocks in at about 1hr 55min, but it probably should have been 2hr 15min.
  • I’m always the guy who complains about movies being way too longer, but I wish this one gave you a little more fat to explore the facility or hear a couple more conversations between Gleeson’s character and Ava.
  • But guys, this really is an awesome movie. It got nominated for a couple Oscars, I can’t wait to see more from the entire cast and crew of this movie.
  • I’m gonna give Ex Machina a B+, it’s definitely one you guys should see.
