Audience Reviews for Armitage III: Poly Matrix
Fantastic cyberpunk adventure that focuses on whether machines can feel. So much better than Ghost in the Shell.
Their treatment of a Martian colony was surprisingly in line with what I would expect. Granted, it wasn't all _science_ fiction, but it was pretty close.
The interesting thing about this movie though, is the question it poses about what constitutes sentience, or life. There are androids walking around that would pass a Turing test with ease, are they alive? Do they have rights?
Unfortunately, it's like they wen't over budget on a fight scene which had nothing to do with the actual plot, and forgot the more interesting philisophical questions.
(Viewed Japanese Version) Very little character and uninvolving action scenes make this a real snooze-fest.
