Hollywood has mastered this genre and has always come up with something new to offer resulting into the lack of diversity on the last couple of years in this genre making this one the smartest of it. Ex Machina is that slow train that takes too much time to reach its destination but the ride offered here is comfortable, interesting and filled with twists and thick plots and sub-plots. Alex's smart writing and excellent execution is helped by some of the best performance possible by Oscar and Domhnall along with Alicia in center of it. The only thing that takes away its ticket from the major league is that its execution even though being outstanding lacks better editing for support which makes even the 108 minutes of runtime look like more than 2 hours. Ex Machina breeds intensity pouring all over the screen with intellectual cultivation of the humanized nature in the most non humanized procedure that allows audience to contemplate and resist and rethink the offerings ever allowed by the sci-fi genre features.
