Grey and his wife live in the near future. A violent event on a fateful night claims her life and leaves Grey a quadriplegic. As part of his rehabilitation, he volunteers for an experimental chip implant. While restoring Grey’s ability to move, the chip proves to be much more—a brainy algorithm that conducts a symbiotic relationship with Grey. As the line between the human and the mechanical gradually blurs, an in-body power-struggle evolves. Leigh Whannel directs an intelligent and engrossing film that tops the familiar Sci-Fi films it references. Beyond its captivating aesthetic and gun-fight scenes, the film debates the fundamental issues we face as we enter the post-humanist age.
