Caleb, a 26 year old programmer at the world's largest internet company, wins a competition to spend a week at a private mountain retreat belonging to Nathan, the reclusive CEO of the company. But when Caleb arrives at the remote location he finds that he will have to participate in a strange and fascinating experiment in which he must interact with the world's first true artificial intelligence, housed in the body of a beautiful robot girl. Written by
When Caleb sits down at Nathan's computer and begins coding, the code he types is for an algorithm called the "Sieve of Eratosthenes," an algorithm for finding prime numbers. However, it also chooses prime numbers that form an ISBN = 9780199226559. This ISBN is for the book "Embodiment and the Inner Life: Cognition and Consciousness in the Space of Possible Minds," a book about the history of Artificial Intelligence. See more »
The premise by which power outages cause all doors to lock at the facility is flawed. Every, simple Security system is programmed to discriminate between high and low priority doors, and furthermore, every door reader would have a battery powered, physical release mechanism to either power the disengagement of the electric strike, or interrupt the power to the magnetic lock. But even without release or override mechanisms, he could have easily programmed his perimeter and high-priority doors to auto-lock in the event of a power outage while leaving internal, non-essential doors open egress.

A great story, with complex yet very relatable characters.
AI has been a recurring theme in sci-fi movies for some time now with varying degrees of plot and execution quality. I feel this movie aces both.
A secluded environment and very good original music set the mood for full focus on story and character development. The plot twists time and time again as an intelligence power-play is delivered with very good performances by this little known cast. Character development feels perfect as each one gains depth without loosing essence.
From a sci-fi point of view, it's not you're typical FX based movie, nor is it an action film. Nevertheless some very good effects and acting make for an excellent merge between fact and fiction that lets you concentrate on the philosophical questions the movie asks about the nature of AI.
Conclusion: I'd recommend this film to anyone. Though warning it concentrates on the brain rather than the muscle. Excellent movie.
