Does exactly what's written on the label...

...and this is quite refreshing, compared to the current offerings.

Let me explain: I watched True Detective 4 expecting a detective story and got a soap opera instead. Watched The Marvels and got a musical number. Watched Rogue Moon and got an inchoate mess instead of a story. Watched The Creator (a movie that shares the basic premise of Atlas) and got a warmed-up soup.

Somebody is apparently trying to re-invent storytelling to "modernize" it, and is failing miserably.

Atlas on the other hand has a simple story, it's developed with craft (if not with art) to its logical end, it has no glaring plot holes and doesn't slap you in the face with CGI: the special effects are there, but add flavour to the story instead of replacing it.

Acting is adequate; some dialogues may feel forced but most of them aren't; the director is competent.

To summarize, Atlas would have been an average movie ten or twenty years ago; nowadays it stands a head above the rest - mostly because average movie quality has fallen quite low.

Special mentions to JLo who manages to carry the movie and to convey some emotions from time to time; her character feels realistic enough and doesn't do stupid things just for the sake of the plot.

Simu Liu is creepy enough as the unstoppable villain; his motivations are refreshingly different from the usual desire to conquer the world - he just has a goal he deems worthy and is determined to achieve it at any cost.

The explosion of the ship near the end of the movie is amazing! The CGI crew somehow managed to inject some novelty into something as mundane as a Hollywood explosion. I'll have to re-watch that scene.

Too much Jeniffer whining, crying, and screaming!

Good visual effects and the story has great potential. But unfortunately this is how a bad lead actress (singer!) can ruin a movie. I just had to decrease the volume to 5% most of the time because Jeniffer would cry and scream every 2 minutes which makes the movie really tedious and hard to follow. From the strory point of view, also the story is again too much Jeniffer centered. I wished to see more of Android universe, and how they live or how their world works. Some character building on their side! Overall I think if Netflix want to conquer the sci-fi market it should go for better actors and directors who know this genre better.

Far from perfect, but surprisingly entertaining!

If you are a sci-fi fan and are known with the Titanfall game series, this movie will be very surprising. It is yet another take on the 'ai will take over the world'. But since I am a big fan of the Titanfall series it was great to experience a movie that was set unintentionally in the world of Titanfall. Jennifer Lopez would not have been my first choice to star in this type of movie, but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by her acting. The relationship between ai and humans got very well portrayed by Jennifer. I even almost shed a tear in the end of the movie. Having said this, I would say that there is a lot of untapped potential. It was a good experience, but it could have been amazing with a more compelling story and build up. The story felt a bit cliché at moments but the CGI partly made up for this.
