Utter derivative tripe - if you're older than 12 years old forget it. - Singularity review by MK

Spoiler Alert
24/05/2018

Yes I was sucked in by the cover. In fact the film plods along at snails' pace trying desperately to emulate Hunger Games, Teminator 3, Oblivion and other far superior movies. John Cusak plays his role marginally better than a truckle of cheddar cheese (he must really have needed the money), and the lead protagonist played stoically by Jeanine Wacker ain't no Jennifer Lawrence though that was clearly who she was meant to resemble. Shot mainly in a forest with open glades (sound familiar), the CGI is impressive for the brief moment in time that it appears but it's mainly drab cityscapes, woodland and banks of computer screens supposed to suggest the lair of the evil conspirators. The final words from Cusak " Let it begin " alarmingly suggests a follow up. NOOOOO. Please. In short i'd have preferred to watch paint dry.

Lo-budget Kickstarter-funded teenage dystopia - Singularity review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
15/06/2018

A grim-faced John Cusack spends the entire film staring at screens after his AI invention Kronos has annihilated most of the human race. Meanwhile a teenage couple wander around a Czech forest looking for a fabled Utopia called Aurora. These scenes were shot in 2013. Cusack’s scenes were shot years later, which is why he never leaves his dark screen room and doesn’t interact with anyone.

There are a bunch of special effects to begin with as mankind is annihilated, but the bulk of the film is Young Adult melodrama. It all adds up to no more than a studenty low-low-budget bore. If you’ve been fooled and enticed by the effects-heavy trailer, you might want to ask for your money back.

No new ideas here then. - Singularity review by RM

Spoiler Alert
21/06/2018

what was the writers plan here, possibly watch the most well known AI taking over the world type films and rip off the best bits and reproduce them badly? Well if that was the plan it was a success!

Here's a notion to ponder, Carmen has a smart phone that is used for GPS to find Aurora, why didn't she just google map it? Or dial 118 and ask for their number and call them up for directions. How come the bad guys didn't just use her GPS signal to follow her instead of building a "human robot" who didn't know he was a robot (where have I seen that before, oh yes Terminator Salvation) at obviously considerable effort. But the best and most puzzling part.................................. After 90 years where the hell did she plug the damn thing in to charge it???????

apart from that, after 90 years how come the lawns outside the building get to be trimmed, and why were the several paths that they ran down not over grown?

Life's full of mysteries , one of them is why did I waste my time watching this poorly produced tripe till the end?

I would have added a spoiler alert, but there was no point, the director has already spoilt it enough!
