Beautifully told, stunning with occasional outbursts of humour... Ex Machina will leave you reeling.

Is there a ghost in this shell or not? The only answer you get from this film is that men are easily blinded assholes, especially when it comes to something which even remotely looks like a pretty woman.

Ex Machina is a masterpiece. Garland puts together an original bit to an over-crowded genre, carried by Isaac's entertaining, spectacular performance.

[Alex Garland's] futuristic vision is no less ominous for its relatively low-key approach but, disappointingly, falls back on genre cliche and a tired depiction of gender relations.

The film Ex Machina comes not a moment too soon.

What's amazing about Ex Machina is Garland's precise control over the audience both visually and through a singularly perfect script. The characters and the audience are both captive, processing the slightest information as fast as they can.

Precision-tooled to perfection with sumptuously seductive design,itcombines the brains of Blade Runner, the gloss of James Bond, and the sly satire of cult comic 2000AD.

A delicate, sensuous and atmospheric film irrespective of its intellectual clout, Ex Machina surges with cerebral and emotional speculation. A startling and unique debut.
April 29, 2019
It's creepy, weird without cheap jump scares or unnecessary gore.

What's really cool about Ex Machina is that, despite its high-brow inner-workings, it's still an easily accessible, small-scale thriller that offers as many genre pleasures as it does philosophical head-scratchers.

It's further proof that one doesn't need an astronomical budget or big stars to tell a compelling, memorable story. Dazzling, provocative and haunting... everything you'd expect from a futuristic sci-fi film.

Vikander's ability to give the machine an emotional edge is a major reason why this works -- asking the audience to invest in her fate.

Strikingly compelling, cerebrally cool and eerily suspenseful.

Ex Machina is one of the most daring, original and creative films of the year and one of the finest sci-fi films ever made.
November 1, 2018
It's a grand idea done with simple methods, and serves a solid template for how the British film industry should handle genre pictures.

It might exist in a vacuum, but that doesn't stop it from being intriguing and absorbing just the same.

Humans will never stop creating. Let's just hope they don't create something that winds up hating them.

Ex_Machina is that increasingly rare beast: the grown up science fiction movie that is as entertaining as it is plausible, with enough shocks to entertain the popcorn crowd and enough ideas to entertain the arthouses.
