Rating: 2.5/5 -- Stanley's attempts at visual stylishness are so relentless they preclude the simple act of telling a good tale. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Surprisingly capable sci-fi/monster thriller. And the soundtrack is so cool it can kill from fifty yards away.

Product Description:

Sometime in the future, a man acquires some pieces of an android for his metal sculpting girlfriend. The android was once a machine designed to destroy humans. In the night it reassembles itself and resumes its mission in this politically pretentious film.

Plot Synopsis:

Violent, post-apocalyptic cult movie about Moses, a terminally ill scavenger, and Julie, his dope-smoking girlfriend. One day, while scouring the remains of civilization, Moses retrieves a collection of mysterious hardware. Unfortunately, the hardware turns out to be a robot programmed to kill human beings and it quickly takes over Julie's technology-intensive apartment.
