First off - most people are going to figure out the 'great reveal' within half an hour. I guessed it early on and was proved right. You probably will, too.<br/><br/>This could easily have been a good one hour episode of Black Mirror, but instead lots of things were crowbarred into the silly 'corporations are bad' motif, just to spin it out for that extra hour.<br/><br/>Excellent special effects and a pretty decent atmosphere don't make a compelling movie. There have to be some engaging characters, some sense of narrative direction and a modicum of originality... and this is where the movie stumbles.<br/><br/>The good looking chap straight from the cover of GQ is alone in a remote lab busy putting together a robot to house the consciousness of his dead and equally good looking wife. Both of these people are annoying and do stupid things. It's like a Hallmark movie set in space.<br/><br/>But the biggest sin of all is a filmmaker who thinks that women give a hoot about sci-fi. They DO NOT, so stop trying to win them over with this sappy rubbish and focus on what men want instead.<br/><br/>A big (and predictable) disappointment.
2038: George Almore is working on a true human-equivalent AI. His latest prototype is almost ready. This sensitive phase is also the riskiest. Especially as he has a goal that must be hidden at all costs: being reunited with his dead wife.
