Movie Info & Cast


From writer/director Gareth Edwards (“Rogue One,” “Godzilla”) comes an epic sci-fi action thriller set amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence. Joshua (John David Washington, "Tenet"), a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife (Gemma Chan, "Eternals"), is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war… and mankind itself. Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory… only to discover the world-ending weapon he’s been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child (newcomer Madeleine Yuna Voyles).

I'm a sci-fi geek and loves me some good post-apocalyptic A.I. vs Humans to take over the world flick. To me it seemed like between Apocalypse Now and District 9 in the future type sci-fi. I absolutely loved it. CGI was dead on fabulous. Story was great and movie had an original concept. I never blinked from beginning to end. This is a must see!

The more the film trumpets its thematic seriousness, the sillier it gets.

The Creator itself eventually tries one’s patience with its incessant demands that you feel for characters and relationships that it hasn’t taken the care to develop.
