Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test - charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan's latest experiment in artificial intelligence.

@sanityscout I don't know, it does seem a pretty classical movie of that type,but I think it might depend on how it is eddited and showed,because only then can you know the full quality of the movie overall.So I think I'll have to wait and see the movie to know if it has more than just the classic plot.
It sounds like a pretty classic AI being excessively human storyline, with a horror/action element. I'm not sure it looks like it has the emotional depth or nuance as Her, for example. What do you think, @ugsi? Have you noticed any stand-out things about it that could make it rise above the usual AI goes haywire plot?
