Equivalent to a sleeping pill

Visual melatonin. A complete and utter waste of time. This movie was extremely boring. Don't believe all of the good reviews. They're all fake. This movie was terrible. Two thumbs down ???? Don't bother.

Solid movie

I'm not sure why the ratings are so low. It's an excellent movie overall and worth watching. I can't say more without giving too much away but it's more of a thinking persons movie versus the usual drivel.

Boring, slow and overrated

I would not recommend this who loves sci fi genre, first hour of the movie is way to slow with not much plot in it, dragged throughout the whole movie i skipped at thr ending to complete it. I would rate it 4 only for cinematography and special effects.

A cheap version of Transcendence (2014)

The concept isn't original ("Transcendence" is way better). Didn't like musicalization.The storyline is flat, sad and unclear.

Boring, late-entrant in an over-saturated genre

Another run-of-the-mill A.I. movie about a secluded man obsessed with re-creating life in a metal body. Usually those films can be thought-provoking and innovative. But this one isn't. And results in a dry, meaningless plot with boring characters. It even has its own abysmal attempt at the Ex-Machina dance scene.

But with that said, there is one very good touch to this movie. One that's unfortunately let down by the other 95% (that doesn't allow it to have the impact that it perhaps should have done). A nice idea, but poorly executed.

Also, this movie is a perfect example of how NOT to use a score (music). More producers need to understand that it's not necessary to fill every second of a movie with an over-bearing score in the background. Because in doing so, the viewer loses the ability to notice which parts of the film something profound, sad, exciting, revealing or exciting is about to happen. The whole movie is filled with futuristic sci-fi ambience music; making every scene/segment of the movie feel exactly the same. Not helpful when the entire plot of the film is already set in one compound with very limited characters. It makes the whole viewing experience even more boring.

If the producers of this film need to learn how to use the score correctly, refer to Moon (2009) and how it used Clint Mansell's masterful soundtrack.

all those...

10s get me little suspicious, there are too many of them, when there is only 50 reviews. sure its solid movie 5,6 maybe even 7 but not so many 10s & 9s. im guessing film crew & theirs familys got "special assignment".imbd's integrity long gone.

Great visuals predictably disappointing ending

Archive started with so much promise. The story was intriguing to start but lost its way trying to incorporate genre cliches, easter eggs, and or homages to other movies. What many people took as visual extensions to the narrative of the film, "which are breathtaking" they are little more then space fillers and do nothing more for the film then allow to create your narrative within those silent moments. This can be very useful is some films, ie. (The Shining, or interstellar) this is not one of them. There is a clear path set out for you that is abruptly taken off course for an (upgrade) esque ending but fails to connect it to the rest of the movie. The larger entities in the movie lack depth therefore are left to the viewer to interpret. The lead is the most forgettable character as the robots show more humanity the he does, which I thought was the underlying storyline. I enjoyed j2 as she grappled with the reality of her existence and relationship to the lead. but once again left my with more questions as the end does not explain why she even existed or why we see her apart from the lead character. I would say it is worth a watch for the visuals but will not make my sci fi rotation

An astonishing sci-fi film *

* There is no end credit scene *

Gavin Rothery in his directional debut! plus crew brought an astonishing sci-fi film. The story is about a scientist trying to build artificial intelligence to bring his wife back from the dead. The movie sets a familiar storyline around the film Ex Machina (2014) but it still stands on its own. It was so painful to watch because most scenes are heartbreaking, and depending on what you believe in the emotions will pour out. If men create something it could have feelings and this film show the consequences of building phase after phase to perfection in a different humanity perspective. The decisions of the scientist made me feel sometimes hurt even though he has a sentimental purpose, but one can't be blinded to other things. I loved the ending it was unpredictable and I was amazed by the double meaning of resolve by its point of view.

The composer Steven Price brings the science fiction so beautifully while adding a sorrowful feel into his music. This is the kind of film where the music must be in awe to achieve the touch of emotions and it successfully created a lot of different feelings.

The cast was great, and Theo James carries amazingly the whole film but my loyalty lies in his creations. Even if they are robotics, J1 and J2 showed so much feeling and the way they care is too much to bear.

Wow!

This movie is excellent science fiction with heart and humanity, with stunning visuals. The writing and directing by Gavin Rothery is extraordinary, and even more extraordinary because it's his first full feature film. The emotionally complex performances by Theo James and Stacy Martin are beautiful. See this movie.

A surprise

Wow I went into this with little to no expectations and decided to watch it on a whim but it was definitely worth it. There were parts of this that reminded me of other sci-fi movies like Ex-Machina and I am Mother but this stood apart on its own. The main actor Theo James was amazing, and I was impressed with his role in this movie. Overall the aesthetic, tone and mood of the movie definitely added to it and made it better. Definitely worth checking out. That ending though, was emotional but really good.

More "Moon" than "Ex Machina"

Gavin Rothery begins a new career as director with a well written and visually stunning sci-fi movie.In 2009, Rothery was a key figure behind Duncan Jones' sci-fi masterpiece "Moon": the moon base, Gerty the robot and all the vehicles were all designed by him.Now, Rothery gives another proof of his visual talent with "Archive".Some people said that "Archive" is a sort of "Ex Machina meets Black Mirror", but I think that's not the right comparison.In my opinion this movie is more a spiritual sequel to "Moon", with the same depht in all its charactersations and the same taste for world building and atmosphere.Yeah, maybe "Moon" was more innovative, but I don't care. This is a kind of sci-fi that's extremely difficoult to find today.This movie is precious. Go watch it immediately if you like the genre

MUST SEE!!

This is definitively a must watch for anyone. The acting, music, story and cinematography are all spectacular. It's very thought provoking and is like no other sci-fi film I've watched.

Good science fiction

Good hard sci-fi. The setting is supposedly 2038. Maybe a bit early. I'd say 2075.

In any case it's a good science fiction story that has writing and acting flaws, but the plot is solid carries it.

Amazeballs!

@ just how dumb this is. yeah big budget and killer cgi but no real substance.. meh

Gavin Rothery has a big hit on his hands

The great writing is evident through out the movie. The locations are beautifully shot and the only thing you are left wanting at the end of the movie is to go and watch it all over again.

Quite good!

This will go underrated,but the acting, soundtrack, storyline and visuals all come together for a really good film.

What the F ???

Maybe my first time for a review. I really think that movie deserved it, at least.A very good SF movie and very well directed.

Just watch it .... and after ...you will be thinking "what the F....."
