Robots are sinister aren't they? The soul-less metallic case with AI IQ better than your average human. I AM MOTHER plays on this perfectly especially at the films conclusion. I personally found it like playing out a little like a Fallout side quest (not in a bad way) in a world not to dis-similar. The look of the film is brilliant, I love the design of the droids (again very Fallout) and Rose Byrne is perfect for the soft caring, yet sinister in a way voice of Mother. It is a slow burn but it doesn't feel dragged out at any point, holding you with a griping plot. Is Mother really behind the death of millions of humans? or is the Woman at their door playing with her mind and using Daughter for her own agenda.
The film leaves you with a few unanswered questions, enough to make to discuss it further after watching it. Was the woman APX01, how many more people came before Daughter? what is the reasoning behind the droids and their actions i.e looking after the food supplies when there is no humans left.
Overall I loved this film. Clara Rugaard is brilliant in this and you will see more of this young lady in the future. It is good to see a rare film appearance for Hilary Swank as well, see plays the part to perfection of a woman trying to survive. This is a definite must watch over on Netflix.
