Critic Consensus: Zoe has some interesting ideas but never manages to get a satisfying grip on them, settling for slow-moving sci-fi that ultimately fails to engage.

Critic Reviews for Zoe
The yearning displayed by Cole and Zoe is meant to be profound. But at a certain point the examination of loss in love ceases to show sensitivity and begins to look like emotional immaturity.
Wrestling with the intrinsic creepiness of the premise would involve some social commentary, self-awareness, and honest-to-God storytelling, and that's not Doremus' bag.
The non-stop, navel-gazing, faux philosophical dialogue about love starts to feel like some strange experiment itself.
This is a movie that casts Christina Aguilera as a robot and yet still manages to be boring.
If we ever truly sympathize with Doremus' nebulous characters, it's only because they help us appreciate how painful it can be to spend so much time trying to divine meaning from utter emptiness.
Audience Reviews for Zoe
Can a soul love their technology? And what, pray tell, would the ramifications of those emotions be? I call it The Pinnochio Question and its back again in this Ridley "Blade Runner" Scott produced vehicle that pretends as if this is the first time the question has been broached when the answers to it are everywhere around us, when Scott himself mines this vein like a heroin junkie looking for a fresh place to inject. Decent performances then make the foregone direction and conclusion palatable, but only just so.
