    • Excerpt: A low-budget sci-fi thriller with worthwhile questions about the relationship between human beings and super-intelligent robots.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: While imperfect on several levels, “The Machine” is an ambitious project that has a slick production design and solid special effects. In some respects, it actually goes farther than a typical production would that came out of the large studio system.

    • Excerpt: The depth of contemplation and conflict sometimes does not compute too consistently in The Machine. Nevertheless, James does ensure that his high-concept robotic romp incorporates viable traces of sleek-looking visuals and compelling pockets of tension that should characteristically lace small-time science fiction thrillers.

    • Excerpt: When I get home, I spend a majority of my time on the computer. I don’t think I’m alone. This is the landscape of the 21st century, and I suspect that I am not alone in the opinion that we are less than five years away from the development of computers that can think for themselves. Will I be so dependent then? Having seen Caradog James’ effective science fiction thriller The Machine, I have reason to think not.
