Ex Machina ★★★½

This is the kind of science fiction film I want more of. A (mostly) believable futuristic story with interesting, if one-dimensional, characters that presents some thought-provoking and ambiguous questions about identity, privacy and human nature. There are definitely elements that hold the film back. It drags in the beginning, certain developments in the plot are very rushed, and there are some plot devices that don’t make sense, but there’s enough smooth cinematography, intriguing writing, and solid performances to make Ex Machina stand out among recent science fiction films.
