Although this concept is not new to Hollywood films, this is something different. The narration by Shawn is good, and the character selection is good. With the stylish performers and the engaging screenplay, the audiences are tied to the seats throughout the film. There are no dull moments and no preachy stuff. The effects of Artificial Intelligence is explained in detail with the finest performances of the stars.
