Archive (2020)

Set in the future, the year is 2038. George (Theo James) is a highly-skilled computer engineer. Currently he is working in a secret base where he is conducting many repairs to get the base in full operation. While doing repairs, George is also working on building new A.I. robots.

Archive-Main-1

Before being sent to the base, George and his partner were involved in a horrific car accident which took the life of George’s love. But before she died, he was able to transfer her into an Archive, a storage system that allows you to say goodbye to those you love. George is building his new A.I. Robots in hopes that one day he will make one good enough to transfer his wife’s mind into it so they can be together again.

Archive-Main-2

But while George’s robot is near completion, several events and roadblocks occur. He receives pressure from the company he works for to get the security at the base completed. Also, George finds unusual issues happening around the base. He begins to question many things, such as why the security systems keep failing or why they have different parts in them after he has fixed them. George is also dealing with one of his A.I. creations becoming envious of his newest design.

Archive-Main-3

If you’re a movie lover who is seeking a new style of sci-fi film, then I would proudly say look no further. Visually, Archive is a stunning looking film in many areas. The film’s visuals are creative, including the location of George’s base, and even the look and style of the base itself. The A.I. robots are also pleasing and convincing on screen. The film’s visuals are also equally matched by the film’s praiseworthy audio track.

Archive-Main-4

As a plot, this is a touching story of a man who feels guilty over his wife’s loss and his determination to bring her back no matter the cost is quite dramatic and thrilling. The film also sets up many mysteries which kept me entirely invested in the story, and I found the film to be quite unpredictable. The pace moves along pretty nicely except for one or two scenes in the film’s third act. The film’s final reveal was undoubtedly a surprise, and it felt quite rewarding for my investment (even if some elements are questionable).

Overall, I found this film to be quite a good sci-fi film that delivers a freshness in its visuals and plot. The plot moves along quite nicely thanks to the mystery and its build-up, and I found the majority of this film was somewhat unpredictable and satisfying. Actor Theo James also brings a positive performance to the screen. If you’re seeking a new type of sci-fi film, this one comes easily recommended.

7.1/10

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
