The Creator(2023)Movie Review:a movie mostly for sci-fi fans


The movie is undeniably visually stunning and effectively constructs its own immersive sci-fi universe. AI is an incredibly vast subject that offers numerous perspectives to explore. The plot takes place in a futuristic society where humans and AI robots are locked in a conflict sparked by an AI robot’s nuclear attack on Los Angeles, resulting in the loss of a million human lives.

While the movie’s visuals are captivating, it falls short in almost every other aspect. The Creator had the potential to be an exceptional sci-fi film, capitalizing on the popular topic of AI. However, it fails to deliver as a cohesive and compelling cinematic masterpiece. Director Gareth Edwards, known for his work on Rogue One, had a clear vision, but weak dialogue and a lack of depth in world-building hindered the film. Despite its impressive visuals and the musical contributions of Hans Zimmer, it lacks substance. The film presents a somewhat pedestrian exploration of AI-related dilemmas, lacking the innovative edge needed in the current year. Had it been released a decade ago, it might have fared better at the box office.

Ultimately, The Creator is a decent sci-fi movie, but it feels somewhat safe and unoriginal. My expectations were perhaps too high, as the trailer hinted at a more thought-provoking and emotionally gripping sci-fi experience, which, unfortunately, is not the case. I would give this movie a 6, and even that rating feels slightly generous considering the weak writing and storyline. However, the film is partially redeemed by its impressive visuals, cinematography, special effects, musical score, and sound effects.
