Ex Machina movie quotes follow what happens when the lines between human and robot are blurred. The British science fiction thriller was written and directed by Alex Garland in his directorial debut. Ex Machina opened in theaters in the United Kingdom on January 23, 2015, then in the United States on April 10, 2015.

In Ex Machina, programmer Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) ventures to the sprawling estate of his employer, Nathan (Oscar Isaac), after winning a contest to spend time with the company CEO. Upon arriving, however, Caleb learns that his visit is actually to conduct a Turing Test, to determine if a machine's behavior is indistinguishable between that of a human's, on a cyborg named Ava (Alicia Vikander).

Caleb is smitten with Ava, including romantically, but when Ava appears to know things about Nathan that Caleb does not, Caleb begins to doubt if Nathan is being completely honest. Also know that if she fails Caleb's test she will likely be destroyed, Ava manipulates Caleb to take her side against Nathan to save her. But are her feelings for him real or just a byproduct of programming? That's what Caleb must really determine.

Ex Machina bring some sci-fi action to theaters already showing other great films such as Furious 7, Cut Bank, Get Hard, Hard, and Insurgent.
