the near future, the arms race has turned into intelligent machines.
Vincent is the head scientist who is working with the military on
building the perfect A.I. (artificial intelligence) machine with
cybernetic bodies for wounded soldiers, but when he finally bridges
the gap between man and machine, The Machine has a will of
it's own and can no longer be controlled.
Caradog W. James' The Machine (2013), Vincent is a cutting
edge military scientist working on the fully independent cybernetic
super soldier, they have the body but now they need a brain, hoping
his research will be the cure for his disabled daughter. He is
joined with the beautiful scientist Ava who helps him complete the
project with her quantum computer brain, but before it could be
completed she was assassinated military. And then behind Vincent's
back they military weaponizes the Machine with combat skills and
weapons training. While Vincent teaches it how to be human, the
military only wants to turn it into a weapon, but when the machine
gains sentience it starts wanting it's own needs and desire, here
was a great sci-fi film in the spirit of The Terminator and
Ghost In the Shell, of one day killer robots will walk among
us. The story is basically why killer robots would come into
existence, it's NOT because their program, but humans seek to control
them, you can't really blame anyone but yourself when you build a
weapon and you lose the trigger. While the of building the robots
CGI was awesome, I would of like to see more battle damaged on the
robots during the combat scenes because it looked more like
invincible super humans fighting humans.
1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image is terrific, sharp and
clear, while the lossless DTS-HD (MA) Master Audio 5.1 lossless track
may not impress as much, but is consistent and well mixed throughout.
Extras include Inside The Machine, behind the scenes, and
