Movie Reviews

  • with Anthony Mackie and Damson Idris at the ever-engaging helm, Outside the Wire gives us an intellectually subtle debate on AI technology as a war machine alongside human soldiers
    3.5 of 5 by Amanda M. Sink [The Hollywood Outsider ]
  • it's entertaining enough, but you wish it had something quirkier, more messily human, more imaginatively drawn outside the lines to it
    2.5 of 4 by Bob Strauss [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • an entertaining if inconsistent sci-fi actioner; "Outside the Wire" is probably too bombastic and inconsistent to take hugely seriously, but features some decent ideas and its intentions are largely honourable
    3 of 5 by Emma Simmonds [The List Film (UK) ]
  • an alarmist rise-of-the-machines premise points to a "Terminator"-like future, with very different results, in this serviceable sci-fi war movie
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • a sci-fi-inflected action pic with its conscience on its sleeve; Anthony Mackie's presence will draw extra attention to the Netflix film, which proves to be a fairly conventional military-action pic despite its moments of Asimovian philosophy
    by John DeFore [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a competent Netflix thriller toys with big ideas; There's a more interesting film buried here and it's the small nuggets of debate about the military and artificial intelligence that keep us going through the bloated, almost two-hour runtime
    3 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • "Outside the Wire" never delves too deeply into the heady themes it touches on; However, it feels more satisfying and grounded; in the end, the movie is fairly forgettable, it's fun and entertaining enough to spend two hours watching
    by Cynthia Vinney [CBR ]
