While watching Ex Machina, it is evident that robots could be replaced with human slaves and the storylines would remain unchanged ( Thompson). Slave owners never regretted killing or torturing their slaves and Nathan sees no problem with the things he does to the robots. Taken as a whole, the movie’s acting is superb from both the human and AI perspectives. The AIs show vulnerabilities that the audience can relate with and by becoming real to Caleb, Ava blurs the line between man and machine forcing the audience to question whether AIs are real people.

Surname 2 Overall, the movie has a predictable storyline. It begins as a gloomy thriller about a young coder (Caleb) following the charismatic Nathan and slowly realizing that his desire to create AIs has a dark, sickening twist. However, the film never loses grip on what it is about even as revelations pile up and the audience begins to sense that violence and terror are inevitable. Work Cited

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
