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.

Sexual Content

Female robots shown full-frontally nude in several scenes. Frank discussion about possible sex with robots. A woman begins to undress and seduce a man. Reference to Internet porn.

Violence

Brief but strong violence includes arm-slicing and stabbing, with heavy blood shown. Characters die. Creepy looking dismantled robots. Arguing.

Language

"F--k" is used several times.

Social Behavior

Many thought-provoking theories/ ideas about the moral consequences of artificial intelligence. Viewers should have a great deal to talk about.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One of the main characters, an adult, gets really drunk in several scenes. It's implied that he isn't necessarily an alcoholic and can stop drinking at will. The main character also drinks, socially.
