Movie Info

Tau follows a once street-smart grifter, Julia (Monroe) who is the latest victim kidnapped and held captive in a fatal experiment. The only thing standing in the way of her freedom is Tau, an advanced artificial intelligence developed by Alex (Skrein), her captor. Tau is armed with a battalion of drones that automate a futuristic smart house. Tau's potential is only limited by his understanding of the world he exists in, but Tau is ready for more. Julia, showing resourcefulness and courage, must race against time to bridge the boundaries between man and machine, connect to Tau and win her freedom before she suffers the same fate as the previous subjects.

Critic Reviews for Tau

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

TAU is winningly guileless as it dresses an old story up in new clothes: Sometimes it takes a Creature to understand the depths of Dr. Frankenstein's monstrosity.

June 29, 2018 | Full Review…

A wannabe-thriller about artificial intelligence with little wit of its own.

June 29, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It is what it is. Tau displays some signs of life, but it wouldn't pass a Turing test.

July 17, 2018 | Rating: 6.2/10 | Full Review…

Violent sci-fi thriller ultimately falls flat.

July 17, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's like a mediocre episode of Black Mirror, running on for too long and out of ideas.

July 16, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

By the end of TAU, if you've made it beyond the hand-wrung bargaining, the humans are inconsequential, and ultimately serve as systemic throughputs.
