About the Event
From writer/director Gareth Edwards ("Rogue One," "Godzilla") comes an epic sci-fi action thriller set amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence. Joshua (John David Washington, "Tenet"), a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife (Gemma Chan, "Eternals"), is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war... and mankind itself. Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory... only to discover the world-ending weapon he's been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child (newcomer Madeleine Yuna Voyles).
Peter Travers ABC News: "Technically amazing but conceptually old-hat, this sci-fi epic from Gareth Edwards makes a case for artificial intelligence through a bond between a protective human (John David Washington) and a human simulant packaged as an adorable six-year-old girl."
James Berardinelli ReelViews: "The Creator fires on almost all cylinders."
Justin Chang. NPR: "Even the most strikingly beautiful images — like the one of high-tech laser beams shimmering over a beach at sunset — are tethered to a story and characters that never take on a life of their own."
David Sims The Atlantic: "The spectacle of The Creator is the film’s real star, which isn’t quite enough to sustain a running time of more than two hours. Even so, The Creator is a high-level craft achievement that is undeniably cool on a big screen."
