Watch this if you liked: "Moon", "The Machine", "Her", "Automata" & "A.I. Artificial Intelligence"

The Good, the Bad and the Artificial Intelligence:

• The movie doesn't waste time establishing the basis of the how, why and the exact time frame of this futuristic story, but instead quickly introduces us to the main characters; Domhnall Gleeson as a reclusive software programmer, Oscar Isaac as a visionary CEO and his A.I. creation, Ava, played by Alicia Vickander.

• The pace of the movie may start out too slow-paced for some and you might even think you have the end figured out, but if you hang in there to absorb the interactions between the three characters (and really! There are only three main speaking characters in this whole movie!) then you'll be rewarded with some suspenseful moments sprinkled along here and there which eventually leads up to the big climax of the film.

• A sleek, contemporary and stylish sci-fi thriller that challenges the mind of the viewer on the relationship between a man and machine when both roles and functions are questioned.

Trivia:
• Alex Garland, the novelist of "The Beach" which was adapted to the Leonardo DiCaprio film, makes his directorial debut with this movie for which he also wrote the screenplay.
