This wasn't very good.
Movies about AI always want to be thought-provoking, and at the same time they always reinvent the same wheels over and over. This movie is no different.
If this had been made in the 80's, it would probably be considered a much better movie. But this is 2018 and you really have to bring something better to the table, especially if you want to preach a certain message.
I'm guessing there was a clear lack of budget, because apart from the CGI quality that ranges from barely passable to outright terrible, they had to invent some "science" and background to the story to justify the lack of actors and sets; the movie takes place in one room, and it's 90% Katee Sackhoff you see on screen.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, because with a great script and a great actor you can really create something wonderful (and CGI be damned). But the script overall is just so poor and Katee Sackhoff, who manages to pull off a decent performance (but no more than that), simply can't carry something like this and just drowns in the bad dialogue and overall story that unfolds around her in a largely illogical and mostly very unoriginal manner.
The pacing overall is slow, but not too slow for me personally, and nearing the end it does try to offer some sort of resolvement, with a little twist. If the movie itself had been better up to that point, I probably could have appreciated that effort a bit more. It also didn't help that most of the bigger questions are actually never answered and that the last 15 or so minutes were apparently filmed through a kaleidoscope.
All in all, not an unlikeable movie, but it's just not good at all. 4,5/10, rounding it up to a generous 5.

This wasn't very good.
Hasraf Dulull got really lazy with this screenplay/story. The overly convoluted plot issues and ridiculously dragged out scenes and run-time are disappointing compared to his previous film, The Beyond, which I enjoyed 100x more. This seemed like a high school student made a film to display his computer graphics/animation skills and added a boring story to their presentation. I could barely stay awake watching this boring production. Don't waste your time with this one. It's a 2/10 from me.
Lot of complaints about the special effects, if you plannning on watching and expecting special effects to keep your attention, please don't waste your time and just rewatch Avatar or Tranformers. This movie is more about science rather than fiction, and is an exercise in thought, not in action.
Fair warning when watching, pay attention.
