Clearly, I Am Mother is thematically rich. It's just not dramatically rich.
"I Am Mother" is exactly what it seems: a good-looking allegory that postures like it's wrestling with more ideas than it actually is.
While "I Am Mother" does show its cards a touch too early, it never ceases to be intriguing and tense.
An uncommonly ambitious feature debut with impressive design work, sharp visual effects, a fabulous A.I. creation and a compelling lead performance from talented Danish newcomer Clara Rugaard.
The end is nigh. Let's celebrate its glorious visualization.
With homage paid to films like Alien, I Am Mother wrestles with the desire to be original, and ultimately wins. With a breakout performance from Clara Rugaard, this sci-fi thriller is every bit as suspenseful as one would hope.
Hilary Swank is so compelling the moment she shows up onscreen you begin to think the movie might begin to surprise you until it doesn't.
It'd all be for naught if not for the excellent script by Michael Lloyd Green, who puts us so firmly in Daughter's shoes that it almost doesn't matter that we've seen several of these tropes before.
I Am Mother is the first feature film from director Grant Sputore, and it's quite an achievement, visually assured and compellingly paced.
As a whole, I think [director Grant] Sputore, his cast, and writer Michael Lloyd Green have created something very special with I Am Mother, and I am excited to see what happens with this film in the future.
For all that the film succeeds in when it comes to technical artistry, there's simply not enough story to convey the large, universal truths I Am Mother goes for.
I Am Mother isn't an incredibly smart or memorable take on artificial intelligence, but the film still taps into some potent cultural anxieties.
