Just Too Many Religious Implications
27 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Due to their own carelessness, humans have been eliminated from earth and robots have sway over the planet. There must be some residual danger because the robots have goon squads that comb the planet for possible human presence. A pair of android/robots have done the Frankenstein vat thing and created a handsome twenty-something man. He has all the features of humanity, including curiosity and passion and he becomes a danger to his creators. One of the unanswered questions is what purpose do these artificial characters serve? What drives them? They are programmed to know that humans are a bad lot, but we see them walking around, human-like, in their day-to-day existences. And why are two of them moved to create life. It's interesting, but the writers can't resist getting into classical Christian religion. There's even a crucifixion. The new human's name is Cain, so he is obviously up to no good, I guess. But isn't he the hero. The ending is about as bad as it can be and we can see it coming a mile away.
