Ex Machina is a smart, well-crafted film that will get under your skin and have you questioning the true meaning of being human.

At best, it feels more like a calling card or extended short film, but there is enough singularity here to mark Alex Garland out as a writer-director of promise.

This is a smart, thoughtful, and thrilling science fiction drama.

The three leads are equally effective at conveying the ethical perils posed by a future that could be closer than we are prepared to admit.

It's about robotics and artificial intelligence and how you can or can't tell a human from a machine, but even more it's about bro culture and the blindness it can induce in those who embrace it.

Garland's finest achievement may be his old-fashioned faith in science-fiction as an engine for profound parables about the state of humanity.

Is there a ghost in this shell or not? The only answer you get from this film is that men are easily blinded assholes, especially when it comes to something which even remotely looks like a pretty woman.

What's amazing about Ex Machina is Garland's precise control over the audience both visually and through a singularly perfect script. The characters and the audience are both captive, processing the slightest information as fast as they can.

Precision-tooled to perfection with sumptuously seductive design,itcombines the brains of Blade Runner, the gloss of James Bond, and the sly satire of cult comic 2000AD.

A delicate, sensuous and atmospheric film irrespective of its intellectual clout, Ex Machina surges with cerebral and emotional speculation. A startling and unique debut.
April 29, 2019
It's creepy, weird without cheap jump scares or unnecessary gore.
March 14, 2019
What's really cool about Ex Machina is that, despite its high-brow inner-workings, it's still an easily accessible, small-scale thriller that offers as many genre pleasures as it does philosophical head-scratchers.

It's further proof that one doesn't need an astronomical budget or big stars to tell a compelling, memorable story. Dazzling, provocative and haunting... everything you'd expect from a futuristic sci-fi film.

Vikander's ability to give the machine an emotional edge is a major reason why this works -- asking the audience to invest in her fate.

Strikingly compelling, cerebrally cool and eerily suspenseful.
