Storyline

The brilliant inventor Ray Kurzweil creates a computer avatar named Ramona (Pauley Perrette). He raises her like a modern-day Pinocchio, and she gradually acquires consciousness. Ramona detects a secret attempt by microscopic robots to destroy the world, but her warnings are ignored by everyone because she is not recognized as a person. Her computerized nature lets her stop the robot attack but lands her in trouble with the law. Written by Anonymous

Possibly the most disappointed I've been about a film
29 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having read Kurzweil's book I was really looking forward to seeing this film. Now that I have I feel really, really let down. The film is absolute rubbish.

The mishmash of documentary and drama just doesn't work. The 'drama' is cringe-worthy and the documentary inaudible due to A CONSTANT AND ANNOYING SOUNDTRACK ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE FILM. I'm really surprised that Kurzweil let his name be associated with this film.

To paraphrase Dorothy Parker, this is not a film to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.

Really, really bad. Read the book and avoid this film
