Automata (2014)

Spain / Bulgaria, 110m, Colour
Director: Gabe Ibáñez; Cast: Antonio Banderas, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Dylan McDermott, Robert Forster, Tim McInnerny, Melanie Griffith

automataAutomata is a near future dystopian science fiction movie about an insurance adjuster who investigates reports that robots are breaking one of their two prime directives. In following Jacq’s search for the truth, the film does little to expand upon existing themes about the relationship between robots and humans. Of note, Melanie Griffith, who also co-starred in a similarly themed, but less serious Cherry 2000 (1987), aptly puts most of her vocal talents to that of the lead “female” robot. A good-looking film with plenty of potential, Automata, unfortunately has few surprises and is need of a big reveal (Klaus Ming November 2014).
