[6.00/10] Automata (2014)

Autómata (2014)

Quick Review: Made in the same vein as "I, Robot" from 2006, but less action-packed and much more philosophical, "Automata" is a wise, mature, refined and mesmerizing, if underdeveloped sci-fi drama crafted with clean elegance and precision, featuring some beautifully desolated post-apocalyptic visuals that create an appropriate tone. Banderas does not disappoint, carrying the movie beyond convincingly and the robots themselves, while ordinary-looking, are perfectly executed.

Undeveloped. That's a good word for it. I keep forgetting to review this one on my site. Maybe Monday.

That was its biggest flaw, in my opinion. Other than that, it was a good flick.

I did like this movie, but yeah, it could have been executed better.

Indeed. I was good for what it was, though.
