"2050" is a sci-fi fantasy movie directed by Princeton Holt. The film stars Dean Cain, David Vaughn, Irina Abraham, Devin Fuller, Stormi Maya and Stefanie Bloom. The film plays out as philosophical exploration of human emotion and sexual conflict in an age of realized futurism.
The film tells the story of a married video game developer who is introduced to a warehouse that customizes androids for human companionship.
The story is ambitious. Much like "A.I" and 'Humans', "2050" explores the relationship between man and technology. The personal acceptance, social implications and potential conflict. In this film the exploration is between human relationships and advanced artificial intelligence integrated sex bots. And yes there is a slight flippant approach with "battle of the sexes" humor.
I am not sure if "2050" ever lives up to the expectations of the film's creators. The concept, on the surface is a curious topic, one with a valid point. Unfortunately, I felt a definite judgemental vibe from the story's perspective choices. Several of the characters felt shakey, didn't really fit Into the situations offered. Some of the writing seemed to need a bit more development.
Special effects are pretty minimal. The environments seem more now than future. Aside from some ancillary CGI elements peppered in there is no real leap to a sci-fi aspect. I didn't get enough A.I conveyance from the android characters to believe them. All that said, the film is shot nicely. Some of the situational material between the human characters were nice. "2050" has a few cool elements but not enough to make sci-fi futurist fans happy. (2/5)
