Ex Machina - Movie Review

Sweet hot robot
So this is the best movie of the year so far. Better than Chappie, better than Age of Ultron and Fast and Furious 7. But it's not a huge popcorn blockbuster. It's a thinker. It's small. Just a handful of characters.

It's hard to even talk about without ruining things. It has 4 perfect actors nailing every second of the movie. The tone is great, the visuals are perfect. The pacing. GAH! The pacing makes you want to jump out of your seat over and over and over. There are so many uncomfortable scenes with the men followed up by the warm and comfortable scenes with the android. Just that dichotomy is worth the price of admission.

This review is short on details because this movie can be spoiled, badly. DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER. It's way better if you don't, go in fresh and be ready to be blown away.

I recommend this movie for everyone. Not kids though, they won't get it. This is not a PG popcorn fest, at all. I especially recommend this movie to anyone interested in the thinking side science fiction.
