We have seen Antonio Bandera´s Autómata. It´s a good Sci´-fi movie that you should watch if you are into the genre. We had great expectations after seeing the Trailer. A Blade Runner style feel and good gritty effects. First of all we have to say that the best thing with this movie is Antonio Banderas acting. He does a great role here. The effects are good. The feel and build of the city. All good. But. The story…
*SPOILERS AHEAD! (Kind of)*
We wont give away too much of the story but we will say this. It started pretty OK but after about half the movie it became to predictable and way too similar to I, Robot (2004) with Will Smith. The fact of the robots uprising. Superior intelligence and escaping to the outskirts to create their own society and the main person becoming their saviour in a way. Spot on. SIGH.
But, nevertheless. The movie is far from bad in any way. And much better than I, Robot. So by all means. Watch it!
Rotten Tomatoes gives it 27% from the critics and 94% from the audience, kinda says it all..
