Storyline

When his wife Amelia suffers an aneurysm that leaves her bedridden and slowly dying, police officer Carter Summerland searches for a way to revive her. He's approached by Wesley Enterprises about allowing Amelia to be the test subject for an experimental program that will place her mind in a new, artificial body - and out of desperation, Carter agrees. But is the result really Amelia Summerland? Or is it something else entirely? Set in the very near future, The Summerland Project uses current, existing technology as a launchpad for a story about where the line truly is between life and death, and to ask the question: What is is that makes us human?. It explores the motivations behind the team that creates Amelia, from genius but standoffish Dr. Ellen Beckett to the kind yet arrogant industrialist Paul Wesley, who funds the work. It explores the fallout in the scientific, legal and religious community, with opposition to the project spearheaded by the passionate Senator Williams. But ... Written by Anonymous

What about the soul?...
18 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

When I found "Amelia 2.0" I didn't even read the synopsis for the movie, nor did I know anything about the movie, I just picked it up and decided to give it a go.

First of all, I must say that writer Rob Merritt definitely came up with a very interesting and entertaining story here. And better yet, it is a story which raises a lot of questions in the audience as you view it, in terms of your own views on the issues being dealt with throughout the movie. And for a movie to be able to raise that kind of questions, that is something that I find rather impressive.

The special effects and CGI effects in "Amelia 2.0" were quite good and really worked in favor of the movie. And for a Sci-Fi movie of this nature then having special effects is definitely a plus. If the movie had less impressive CGI, then the movie would have been much less enjoyable or convincing.

"Amelie 2.0" has an ensemble of good acting talents, which were for the most part new faces to me. And I do enjoy watching new actors and actresses on the screen, as there are no associations to other previous characters linked to the performers. So that was a definite plus in my book. The actors and actresses in the movie were doing good jobs with their given roles and characters, and that was working well in favor of the movie.

Director Adam Orton did a great job in bringing writer Rob Merritt's story to life on the screen.

The characters in the movie are quite well-rounded and they have very distinct personalities and traits. And the dialogue throughout the course of the movie was well written and delivered by the various actors and actresses.

The movie makes use of way too many short shots of random and pointless images that serves absolutely no purpose to the movie, aside from being fillers. That was particularly true for the first 10-15 minutes of the movie.

I really enjoyed how this movie raises some issues and questions about humanity, the ability to replace the body in parts or as a whole, and how the soul fits into all of this if you take a religious stand on it. But also how traditional and inbred thinking stands in the way of technological advancement and the fear of embracing new and innovating things that break up with how things traditionally are and have been for a long, long time.

I have a feeling that this movie might be very underrated and slip under most people's radar. However, I can most strongly recommend that you take the time to sit down to watch "Amelia 2.0" if you have the chance.

The ending of the movie was not really one that did the movie or the storyline much justice, and it felt just like it was a very, very wrong way to end the movie.
