      Terry Staunton Radio Times The end result plays out like a first-draft Black Mirror script hampered by plot inconsistencies. Rated: 2/5 Sep 21, 2023 Full Review Kat Halstead Common Sense Media If he's looking to make a point about the patriarchy, it's odd that the film is mostly seen from a male POV, and so much time is taken on the camera roving over women's near-naked bodies. Rated: 2/5 Sep 5, 2023 Full Review Steven Warner In Review Online Bird proves he is a more than competent filmmaker; let’s hope he can take that talent and actually do something of legitimate substance with it next time out. Sep 1, 2022 Full Review Erik Childress Movie Madness Podcast For about ten minutes James Bird’s film crafts the right mold of satiric indifference in a misogynistic future, but soon gives itself over to generic action and none of the genuine debate of its more lauded sci-fi predecessors. Rated: 2/4 Aug 16, 2022 Full Review Carla Renata The Curvy Film Critic Johnathan Rhys Meyers and Elena Kampouris sizzle on screen with undeniable chemistry resulting in sheer fireworks, whether they are speaking or not.  However, their combined electricity isn't enough to make this slow burn film palatable. Aug 12, 2022 Full Review Mark Dujsik Mark Reviews Movies [T]he movie doesn't seem certain what to do with its confused and mostly unnecessary metaphor.

      Catarina D Worth watching if anything else for Kampouris' near-mesmerizing performance. The idea behind the movie plot is reasonably original and makes for a good reflexion on what it is to be human and what tempts us invariably - success, power, posession, ultimately love. Dystopic science fiction fans like myself will have a bit of trouble standing everything else. Watching it once is enough, though. Less than once is maybe a waste. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Joe W Other than Elena Kampouris who is incredibly competent, charming and beautiful, there isn't much here. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/29/24 Full Review J o Oof, that was Rotten! I watched about 5 minutes and it is utter cringe all the way. The acting is below school play level. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/24 Full Review Tibor F True Z movie script, one vaguely not-so-bad story idea only. You can fast-forward most of the film, as not much is happening. If you heard the first two sentence of a dialog, you pretty much know the rest. Imagine a 2-minute film pitch talk, and that is pretty much all the content, the rest is just filler and clichés everywhere. Horrendous acting, '90s visual effects. Only watch it if this is the only film on Earth available for you. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/17/23 Full Review Ivan S Really bad. Do not watch the script was weak acting was bad. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/16/23 Full Review Daniel N Whilst this mildly dystopian sci-fi flick is far from being a gem, I do not agree with the disapproving critics and believe it has its visual appeal and relevant warning signs of where AI is taking us.
