Avoid at all costs


Sometimes it's good to go into a movie without knowing anything about it. This is not one of those times. If I'd read about it I would never have watched it. It's a third rate knock off of Blade Runner, The Matrix and Robocop, but not a tenth as good as any of those films. Avoid. Unless you are into third rate knock offs of Blade Runner, The Matrix and Robocop.

it kept me entertained all the way until the ending which I thought sucked. felt like a lot of lead up for that stupid ending. I thought with all the foreshadowing he gave how man could do more than machine he would take control and beat it. what a real let down.

How is it like Blade Runner? It's set in a bleak future? That's hardly a knock off.
How is it like the Matrix? I can't think of anything significant copied from there.
Robocop? Really?

I've already answered this in the comments:

Robocop - similar themes of lead character dying at the beginning and being revived to fight evil
Matrix - fight scenes with camera placement to try and add drama
Blade Runner - Corporations running a dystopian society in the future involving technology.

None of the themes were done well really.

Robocop isn't about dying and coming back to life. It's about modern life dehumanizing people and turning them into numbers, workers, etc.

Matrix fight scenes aren't what the movie is about.

Blade Runner is not about corporations running society.

It had nothing to do with Blade Runner, Matrix, or Robocop.

It's a typical theme in SF novels that someone has a computerized device that takes them over, sometimes for good, so it's not that original. But, for movies it is and the films you mentioned aren't about that.
