To Be? Or Not to be Computer Generated? That is the Question.

Warning! This short review might or might not be being written by a human being. That is for you, the reader, to decide. The talented actor Oscar Isaac ("A Most Violent Year" - "Robin Hood" - "Inside Llewyn Davis" - "Body of Lies") stars as a modern day composite of Dr. Viktor Frankenstein, Bill Gates, Howard Hughes, and parts Donald Trump. He's a boy-genius-turned-billionaire-recluse who lures one of his employees into helping him test-drive his latest AI creation: AVA (played by Alicia Vikander). The computer-generated AVA is truly a sight to behold. SPOILER ALERT! This film might cause you to stand in front of your DVD player and yell "It's Alive!" "It's Alive!"
