Finally a sci fi movie that's not a franchise IP or a superhero flick. Worth seeing just for that.
Exactly right! Just what cinema goers have been craving: another entry in the Surrogate Daddy Shooting Spree sub-genre:
"Amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence, Joshua, a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife, is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war… and mankind itself. Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory… only to discover the world-ending weapon he’s been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child."
Sound of Freedom at least had the kiddy diddling angle to arouse audience interest.
This? Another" "Oh noes!", there's a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious AI out of control and the world is going to end unless Daddy saves the CGI day.
I am excited for this as well. Spinmeister is right in that, story wise, this seems pretty generic to be honest. But it is a original sci-fi film made by a director that clearly cares about artistic elements. The cinematography looks spectacular and with a budget of just $86 million, the visual effects looks leagues above some other expensive action films. This doesn't look or feel like another Marvel or Disney film.
