    Civilian aristocrat Marcus DeVol enters military service on a purchased commission as captain of Chimera - a battered and hybridized old destroyer spacecraft with a bottom-dollar crew. Initially given the relatively safe job of running down pirates and blacklisted vessels for prize money, a change of orders will send Marcus and his crew far from home and into very real danger. Marcus must lead his crew despite his youth, inexperience, and self doubt. Marcus has few illusions about his purchased commission. An academic, he is untested as a leader, and his curious mix of officers and crew regard him with a wary eye. Like Chimera herself, they've been pieced together based more on Marcus' tight budget than their experience and reliability. Many of them are foreigners with pasts who have joined the service for a clean slate. Some are more competent than others; few of them have seen real combat.


Slow and Overrated by the Bots

Not only was this film slow to the point that you could use it as a sleep aid, but the only "twists" that the overrated reviews talk of are actually just the ending which was predictable. What a waste of time and film.

Impressive production design and an unexpected climactic twist save an otherwise predictable sci-fi drama! [+61%]

Not quite in the league of sci-fi brilliance as Ex-Machina or Blade Runner 2049, Archive has an interesting (yet familiar) premise that features humans and artificial intelligence. George, an A.I. scientist, is trying to upload his dead wife's conscience into one of his brilliant android creations. In the process, he has created two prototypes - a bulky one with the intelligence of a toddler, and another smaller, leaner version with the brains of a teenager. Both the prototypes (treated as sisters) develop a connection with their creator. George, however, wants to build a 3rd and final prototype which has the potential to perfectly carry his wife's sensibilities and demeanor.

The story gets a little dramatic in the middle portions, with one of the prototypes feeling jealous of her creator's newfound enticement with his latest, brainiest android. There's also the evil corporate angle which only drives the film faster towards its finale, but what catches you off-guard is that incredible last-minute twist. It leaves the door open for repeat viewings and multiple interpretations. Since Archive takes the predictable route to get to this cracker of a twist, it doesn't get a rating more than what's currently assigned.

Theo James is ideally cast as George; to think this is a film that's primarily about a human living in an isolated lab with 3 robots, James pulls off the stoicism quite well. His relaxed self in those flashback sequences with his wife proved to be an informal breather in an otherwise sober film. The production design and special effects certainly deserve applause.


So.. this is the sort of 'Sci-Fi' move that makes stupid people feel smart.. or something. People actually gave this 9 and 10 stars. Without irony.Anyhow.. terribly slow and plodding. Utterly disjointed and not at all believable even within the sci-fi genre. Shamefully silly premise and story-line. Tries so hard to be melodramatic yet its emotionally hollow and empty. Vapid, sterile garbage. Oh, and the 'surprise' ending is just adds insult to injury. There are so many good indy sci-fi films.. why waste time on an awful one?Few things disappoint me more than people who think awful movies are great. 10 STARS? REALLY?!?
