Not as bad as I expected until the last 20 minutes

I went into this expecting the same incredibly bad movie as the rest of the Sci Fi channel's attempts. Now, I not by any means saying this was a great movie but it was far above the rest of the crop. Sure it is a ripoff of "The Terminator" and "The Defiant Ones" (thanks ted1244, I couldn't remember the name of that movie) but what movie isn't in some sense. There was conflict in several characters that gave them some dimension. I especially liked the androids coming to terms with his "humanity" and was pleasantly surprised to find the human character in which I initially found nothing redeeming actually grow and display more depth than I have ever found in any SciFi channel movie. ** possible spoiler *** The movie did fall apart in the final 20 minutes when the evil android master finally found the last key to perfecting his creations. I normally don't have much trouble with techno-babble as long as it is obscure enough or has just enough science to make it remotely possible but but here it was just silly. We're supposed to believe that what stands between man and machine is the constituents of the fluid that surrounds our brain? Give me a break, I never took much biology but even I know that the function of this fluid is more to create a safe environment for the brain and does not contribute anything to our thinking or humanity. I'm sure if they just consulted with the set nurse they could have come up with something more convincing than that. Then we're supposed to believe that a couple of humans and one android were able to overcome an army of invincible attack droids and resolve all the conflict and suspicion between man and android in one fell swoop. Despite this I give SciFi channel a mild round of applause. There may be hope for them yet.

Like the prologue to Matrix

Machines have taken over, but left humans thinking that they are still the ones in charge. The machine people (androids) need humans because of the human brain fluid; without it the android brains can't work. Until the mad scientist (who was once a human but has replaced all his parts with android parts) finds out how to make this brain fluid artificially. Now the androids no longer need the humans. Just as this scheme is running its course and the humans are about to be wiped out, one renegade android who was an experimental specimen that turned out to be a bit too human, thwarts the entire scheme, aided by the human man who befriended him and made him see things the human way. It's not bad. There are built-in references to a lot of classic sci-fi tropes (and movies), and both the two main characters, Scott Bairstow and Joseph Lawrence, are surprisingly likable and act very well. Too bad the budget was the pits (sand pits, to be precise), and the story - especially its resolution - didn't have much depth, but at least the characters felt real, and that's more than I was expecting. I'm going to seek out more work by these actors. So, a fairly entertaining sci-fi movie. I kinda liked it. 6 out of 10.

Shut down

Recap: A (mad?) scientist that apparently works to construct androids to save mankind in a post apocalypse world secretly turns himself into one. And secretly he intends to construct more advanced androids and overthrow the human reign on Earth. However, one android develops feelings and conscience and with the help of one human that happens to find himself in the crossfire the challenge the scientist and his army. Comments: I had some hope for this, but got disappointed. This was too simple. In essence, it was a row of fistfights, nothing more, nothing less. The story and characters were thin and shallow and when the movie pretty soon became repetitive it also became boring. Once there it never redeemed itself and I pretty much shut down. Like an android. 4/10
