“Tau follows a once street-smart grifter, Julia (Monroe) who is the latest victim kidnapped and held captive in a fatal experiment. The only thing standing in the way of her freedom is Tau, an advanced artificial intelligence developed by Alex (Skrein), her captor. Tau is armed with a battalion of drones that automate a futuristic smart house. Tau’s potential is only limited by his understanding of the world he exists in, but Tau is ready for more. Julia, showing resourcefulness and courage, must race against time to bridge the boundaries between man and machine, connect to Tau and win her freedom before she suffers the same fate as the previous subjects.”1
While the previews of this Netflix movie looked pretty good, it wasn’t realistic especially the ending. My hubby’s in IT so any movie with computers has got to be spot on and even I knew some of what they proposed was highly improbable ***Spoiler Alert*** that an entire AI can be on a small device. Also how hard did she hit the bad guy to be able to cut off his hand without him waking up???
I did like the movie and really liked the premise of a street-wise girl outsmarting a villain and an AI but the movie fell short for me.
My rating 2.0 stars out of 5
