Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Ex Machina is a science-fiction movie about artificial intelligence. It's more thoughtful and less action-oriented than many movies and will give older teens plenty to think and talk about, although it's definitely geared toward mature audiences. There are brief, strong scenes of violence, with slicing, stabbing, and lots of blood. "F--k" is used several times. Full-frontal nudity is shown on lifelike female robots, and the concept of human sex with robots is discussed. Both main male characters drink alcohol, and one gets really drunk in several scenes. This movie may be too cerebral and slow-moving for some audiences, but die-hard sci-fi fans will be eager to see it.
