Two artificial intelligence engineers come together as they work to create the first ever self-aware artificial intelligence. A veteran AI engineer secretly hopes to develop technology to help his diseased daughter, even if it means funding comes from the powerful Ministry of Defense (MoD). His new partner, a young woman gifted in the field of AI, is brought on after her breakthroughs are recognized by the MoD. Things go wrong when the MoD takes over and advances the researchers’ work to the next level, teaching the AI to kill and follow MoD instructions with its new and nearly indestructible body.

Leslie Felperin review - “Guardian”:http://www.theguardian.com/film/2014/mar/20/the-machine-review Caradog James packs his sci-fi thriller – starring Caity Lotz as a kickass cyborg – with too much philosophy, but directs with brio.

“78% Tomatometer”:http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_machine_2013/ The Machine proves an audacious debut for writer-director Caradog James and a solid entry in modern British sci-fi, with thematic heft to match its genre thrills.
