Movie Review - Ex Machina

Movie Review - Ex Machina, 3.75/5

This is another movie about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the moral quandaries/risks we take when go down that road. In this movie a computer programmer "wins" a visit to the secluded home of the founder of the giant Google-like computer company he works for. Quickly discovers he has been brought there to evaluate the "AI" the founder created. The AI is a she, and the programmer finds her very alluring. Before long he wants to do more than just evaluate her. The movie does a good job creating a tense, uneasy dynamic between the founder and programmer. The story is told in an understated fashion which adds to the tension. It's got a good ending, which left me thinking about it for a couple days. I recommend it.
