Ex-Machina is a Sci-fi thriller movie about robots. The movie explores the gender roles and how all thoughts and decisions are influenced by “a reproductive urge, and no biogenetic impulse exists without a priori acknowledgment of attraction. For a machine to attain the status of “singularity” (the point at which the human and artificial become indistinguishable) it must have a sexual component.”
The movie slightly sexualises the robot by giving it human-like features and emotions that the machine is seen to express. From a religious point of view some viewers might question the inventors motive. It is as if the movie is trying to portray the creator of the robot as a god due to his ability to create a being.
