The Machine is a British sci-fi thriller starring Caity Lotz (Arrow, Mad Men, The Pact), Toby Stevens (Black Sails, Die Another Day) and Denis Lawson (Star Wars). Directed by Caradog W. James.
Set in the near future and with the world plunged into another cold war; Britain’s Ministry of Defense is on the verge of developing a robotic soldier. This soldier, called The Machine, looks and sounds human, but has the strength, speed, and ruthlessness beyond that of any living person. The project is near completion when a bug in the programming, a side effect of it being too close to human coding, causes the prototype to destroy the lab and everyone in its path in spectacularly violent fashion. Undeterred by this setback, lead scientist Vincent McCarthy enlists the help of an artificial intelligence expert to help him harness the full potential of a truly conscious fighting machine.
Fans of the Arrow TV series will know Caity Lotz from her role as Black Canary.
As a fan of both Caity Lotz and killer robots, I’ll be looking forward to checking this movie out.
The Machine will be in theaters April 25 and on VOD on April 8.
