Keywords: Sci-Fi, Robots

A computer engineer embarks on a perilous journey after he is invited to beta-test his mad-genius boss's latest creation.

Caleb, an impressionable young engineer for search-engine giant Bluebook, "wins" a contest to join mad genius CEO Nathan at his estate-cum-laboratory in the mountains. Asked to help beta test Nathan's latest creation, a self-aware humanoid robot named Ava, Caleb soon opens up a dangerous can of worms touching on questions of morality and the definition of "human" as his experiments with Ava wear on and Nathan's true intentions are laid bare.

A mostly unqualified triumph for writer/director Alex Garland, Ex Machina delivers in areas where prior genre entries like Artificial Intelligence: AI and Transcendence came up short.
