The ROC Corporation has designed and built robots called Automata Pilgrim 7000 to help to rebuild the world. These robots have two security protocols; they can neither harm humans nor alter themselves or other robots. When police officer Sean Wallace shoots a robot and claims that it was altering itself, ROC insurance agent Jacq Vaucan is placed in charge of the investigation. Soon he believes that there is a “clocksmith” illegally modifying the robots. Jacq wants to live in the coast and asks his boss and friend Robert Bold to transfer him with his pregnant wife Rachel Vaucan to the coast. Robert offers the possibility if Jacq resolves the case. Jacq and Wallace go to a brothel where the modified robot Cleo attends and Wallace shoots its leg, expecting that the owner will lead them to the clocksmith. They meet Duprè but she is not the clocksmith that is modifying the robots. Soon Jacq discovers who is the responsible for modifying the robots but the Powers that Be in ROC believe that Jacq is the one to be blamed.
Plot: Jacq Vaucan, an insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation, routinely investigates the case of manipulating a robot. What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity.

Visually outstanding achievement. Underrated by critics and worth the watch
Automata’ (2014) is a critically underrated and atmospheric science- fiction thriller in the same vein as ‘I Robot’ and ‘Blade Runner’. It boasts excellent visual effects, as well as an engaging and intelligent story. While it borrows from other science fiction it does so successfully, especially the atmospheric and decaying world we’re thrusts into from the beginning.
The story centers around Antonio Banderas’s character, Jacq Vaucan – a world-weary insurance agent for a robotics corporation whose job is to investigate robots violating their protocols which are one: harming any form of life, and two: they can neither repair themselves nor alter another robot in any fashion. On the trail of a robot Vaucan discovers a robot stealing parts in an apparent attempt to alter itself. This leads him to the clock master – a fixer who may have just succeeded the second protocol.
Automata is a throwback to thoughtful science fiction. It’s not for the feint of heart but if you’re engaged and buy into the world and the premise then you’ll be rewarded. The film surprised me in a lot of ways – especially for such a relatively small budget but imagery is fantastic and the effects are mostly practical, and built with little computer generated imagery save for some backgrounds and action scenes which make it that much more realistic.
It’s slower and probably has less action but if we’re comparing it to what it will inevitably be compared to, ‘I Robot’, Automata is a better movie. More thoughtful, grittier and executed a whole lot better visually. It’s not a perfect flick by any means but it’s worth watching and deciding for yourself.
plot needs tightening
It’s astonishing that someone can spend 15 million dollars on a movie (allegedly) and not spend 15 hours tightening up the script. At best the scenarios here feel vague and unconvincing.
So here goes: Why does Vaucan wander casually out into the border territory when moments before he was told that guards shoot everyone on sight? He even witnessed someone shot and killed there!
Why is the corporation so determined that Vaucan is their prime suspect when there is so little evidence to support the idea? This is a big concept in the film, and it never feels convincing.
Why does the big hi-tech and powerful corporation (powerful enough to apparently have an entire insurance branch within the company) send out a handful of thugs with shotguns in a truck to sort out what is (apparently) a crisis threatening the future of mankind? And why do they hire (apparently) a couple of street kids to kill Dr Dupre? Weird.
Why does the robot jump off the cable car, miss the platform and fall to its doom in the canyon? I didn’t get that at all.
Who actually modified the bio-kernels? Was that ever explained? Why develop and pursue the mystery of the inviolable protocol throughout the movie, only to have a robot reveal finally that “it just happened”?
Why are the robots so keen to live in the middle of nowhere. Don’t they need a power source? Metals and materials to scavenge? (Yeah I know they have a “nuclear battery”, but still, didn’t feel convincing to me).
Why is this a future where robotic brains are bordering on artificial intelligence, yet mankind hasn’t yet invented the internet? Why are they using fax machines? It felt very odd.
These are just a few items that caught my attention…
Despite all this the movie is still does pretty well on “atmosphere” alone, especially in the first third. Worth a watch!
