Set in a dystopian future, this is the story of an insurance investigator looking into whether robots have been tempered with, by others or even by themselves.

This movie borrows (heavily) from Blade Runner, I Robot, and District 9 amongst others, and it starts out quite promising.

But in the end, the plot is too shallow, and so are the characters; the acting is weak and the ending is disappointing.

Give it a miss, unless you are a hardcore scifi fan…


  • Does it have a hook: Not really
  • Is it entertaining: Only if you really like sci-fi
  • Is it worth watching: Not really
