Strikingly compelling, cerebrally cool and eerily suspenseful.

Ex Machina is one of the most daring, original and creative films of the year and one of the finest sci-fi films ever made.

It's a grand idea done with simple methods, and serves a solid template for how the British film industry should handle genre pictures.

It might exist in a vacuum, but that doesn't stop it from being intriguing and absorbing just the same.

Humans will never stop creating. Let's just hope they don't create something that winds up hating them.

Ex_Machina is that increasingly rare beast: the grown up science fiction movie that is as entertaining as it is plausible, with enough shocks to entertain the popcorn crowd and enough ideas to entertain the arthouses.

Garland has given us a thing of beauty - a rare, shining example of an entertaining film, completely devoid of some of the more pompous tropes common in this genre.

Ex Machina is full of reflective surfaces; it's a funhouse mirror on our fears and ideas about technology, information.

Every word matters in this film: not a look, movement, or sequence is wasted by first-time director Alex Garland.

Even on more trashier terms, there was still a chance Ex Machina might have still worked for me, had Garland refrained from resorting to the kind of cruel, mean-spirited measures that marred some of his best known work.

"Ex Machina" is not to be missed!

The thing that makes this movie stick out to me is the acting. Every single scene - and I mean every single one - would not work if the actors weren't as great as they are.

It's creepy, compelling and asks some interesting questions about the power of human sexuality.

One of the most intelligent and thought-provoking sci-fi thrillers of the current generation

... a stellar piece of science fiction.
August 16, 2017
It's refreshing to watch a science-fiction story that remains brilliantly cerebral, demanding the focus of its audience, yet constantly throws us a naughty wink.

If you want to make a film about how it's not okay to objectify women, the first step is to not make a film that spends its entire run time objectifying its women.
August 2, 2017
Too aptly titled, Ex Machina morphs into that most clichéd, if admittedly appealing, of recent genres: a sci-fi noir.
June 23, 2017
In Ex Machina, (Garland) may have created his best work yet, working with a very small cast in a limited space that gives the characters plenty of chances to turn on each other in subtle, clever ways.

[Isaac] is superb as a psychopathic Steve Jobs type in Ex Machina, a creepily sexualised but ultimately impressive little sci-fi thriller directed by the British novelist Alex Garland.
