Movie Review: Archive (NETFLIX) 2020


For a lazy Saturday afternoon, I decided to watch a movie from Netflix that I felt drawn to however I was not sure if its a movie that would appeal to me?

The Archive is a movie based in the future 2038 and it's about a man that is building the closest thing to human-AI (Artificial Intelligence)

IMD describes the movie as "2038: George Almore is working on a true human-equivalent AI. His latest prototype is almost ready. This sensitive phase is also the riskiest. Especially as he has a goal that must be hidden at all costs."

A man is dealing with his demons as we find out that he loses his wife in a car accident.

George is adamant to continue his scientific work to build an AI partner to replace his wife basically that is the whole story but you have to be in it for the long hall because this movie is surprising and you think you know where this is headed but you really don't.

This movie goes for nearly two hours and this is thirty minutes too long in my book this should have been a ninety-minute movie a nice quick dip into the sci-fi future escape reality and then come back but two hours in length was too long and for me, this is a straight to DVD or Digital Download kinda movie.

This movie reminds me of a recent movie I watched with Hugh Jackman in it along with the same kinda premise about trying to bring back or relive the past that movie was called "Reminiscence"

It has been a fight for humanity to be able to continue living the fountain of everlasting youth and life and we do not realize that death is part of life hence there is life after death.

The main two cast members carry the whole movie and they are no one I really know. I just no a supporting actor called Toby Jones.

Do I recommend this movie not really but it is something different and will surprise you in the end.

The aspect I did enjoy about this movie was the scenery that it showed even though it was mostly shot in the snow and water and the mountains really breathtaking.

You need to get past the first hour of the movie to really understand get into this movie if you can last that long.

Not a kiddie movie and may not be liked by most adults.

A one-time watch for me. 5/10 even though it had a great ending.
