Ex Machina

Crass misogyny overwhelms any thoughtful considerations on the rapid development of artificial intelligence that this sometimes witty tale of a mad scientist (Oscar Isaac), his assistant (Domhnall Gleeson) and his buxom, skimpily clad creation (Alicia Vikander) might have to offer. Writer-director Alex Garland apparently presumes that a big naked finale doesn't count as gratuitous if all the women on display are robots.

Watch out for: Strong sexual content, including numerous images of full nudity, some knife violence, a few uses of profanity, much rough language.

Rated: O, morally offensive; MPAA: R, restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
