Goofs

The risk assessor who meets with and is seated with Almore, chugs the remainder of his cocktail and sets it down. He gets up to leave in a separate shot, and about 3/4 of an inch of his cocktail is back in the glass. The two gentlemen speak a while, and in a separate edited take, the glass is then again empty.

Great design, and that's about it
11 July 2020 | by bluenotejazz-64946See all my reviews

I caught this at a Drive-In double feature with "Palm Springs." I think that pairing made this pale in comparison.

I will say that I was VERY impressed with the production design and the special effects; nothing looked cheesy or unrealistic (I haven't found any budget information anywhere yet). And that's about it. Theo James has the looks of a young De Niro or James Franco from time to time, but he (or his character) is quite charmless.

It's strange that this reminded me of "Moon" so much, when you consider that the director of this film worked on "Moon" back in 2009. But that film is buoyed by an engrossing Sam Rockwell performance. And "Ex Machina" has the balance of Domnhall Gleeson and Oscar Issac's performances. Theo James can't really anchor this whole movie. The other actors are fine, but seem ornamental.

This is above-average for its design, but middle-of-the-road for just about everything else.
