Verdict on The Creator
The Creator is a sci-fi action movie following the war between A.I. and humans. It focuses on one man who is sent on a mission to locate a new weapon, only to find himself questioning his place in the war.
This is a big action movie and puts us right in the middle of a war between AI and Humans. It feels a lot like a mix of a Terminator movie, mixed with Oblivion. This gets to prove that people don’t always know what they are forced to fight for. It shows that power plays by countries can cause mass destruction. Along with a warning about how involved humanity needs AI in their lives.
This is an original story and uses the big moments for impact. The missile strikes are sequences that will be remembered along with the different robots used in battle. Overall, the performances are great with John David Washington shining in the leading role once again.
Final Thoughts –The Creator is an excellent sci-fi spectacle.
