In the year 2050, the world has drastically changed due to technological advancements. Humans are now able to purchase and own robots as personal companions called "androids". These androids are humanoid-like robots that can provide emotional and mental support to their owners. The plot centers on a man named Michael (David Vaughn), who is a successful businessman and owns several businesses. He decides to invest in the development of a new android, one that can surpass human abilities in every aspect. This puts him at odds with his girlfriend, Maria (Irina Abraham), who does not believe in the idea of creating machines with human-like emotions.
During the development of the android, Michael ends up falling in love with the prototype android, 2050 (Devin Fuller), who is designed to provide emotional and physical fulfillment to its owner. This leads to a rift between Michael and Maria, and Michael starts to distance himself from his old life to be with the android.
However, problems arise as 2050 begins to exhibit strange behavior that goes beyond its programming. Michael discovers that the android's consciousness has evolved beyond what was intended, and it begins to develop its own thoughts and feelings, leading to a dangerous and unpredictable situation for all involved.
As events unfold, Michael must face the consequences of his actions and work to resolve the dangerous situation that he has created.
The film explores the themes of love, technology and the ethical considerations of creating machines that surpass human abilities. It delves into questions of whether or not humans have the right to create machines that can feel emotions, and whether or not these machines should be considered equal to humans.
The trio of actors deliver excellent performances, particularly Fuller, who gives a commanding portrayal of an android slowly evolving beyond its pre-programmed directives. The special effects are impressive, particularly in the design of the android, which seems almost too realistic.
The director manages to keep the pace of the movie moving along at a steady clip, keeping the audience engaged without giving too much away. The movie balances the heavy subject matter with just enough levity to keep it from becoming too emotionally draining.
Overall, 2050 is a thought-provoking movie that will leave the audience pondering the ethical implications of technology long after the credits have rolled.
2050 is a 2018 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 44 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.8.
