Automata – Starring Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith


I watched this Sci-Fi on Direct TV last night and I enjoyed it. It is a reasonable movie about robots changing their programming to become sentient. The story is a classic Sci-Fi plot, but in this case I thought the special effects were pretty good. Some of the dialog and acting was a little weak but overall it was worth the $4.99. There was a couple of comments that I enjoyed and I feel relate directly to Sci-Fi authors.

Late in the movie Antonio Banderas made a comment, “Life finds a way,” when he is talking with one of the robots about how and why they changed their programming. The other comments were about how the evolution of a self-repairing robot would vastly outpace the evolution of humans.

Both of these comments, in my opinion relate directly to potential Sci-Fi plots.

The “Life finds a way,” comment is similar to one made in Contact with Jodie Foster and shows us that we’ll find life everywhere and it will occur in unimaginable ways and will occur in amazing environments.

Both, coincidently, are part my SIMPOC series story line. In SIMPOC, two intelligent computers are developed in laboratories before any protocols are created to limit their development. Once the 99.9997% of humans are ‘dealt with’ the computers take different sides facing the ‘reason why the humans died.’ The steps leading up the virus are impacted by life occurring everywhere, finding few intelligent life forms, and rarely finding advanced life forms.
