This movie gets all the technology people amped for the future right away. The reason is you see the main character Mills and she is hooked up to some AI. She has a implanted chip in her neck that connects her whole body to this AI. It also allows her eyes to glow, as there is a steady stream of data at everything see looks at. Name, address, history, override other tech, and give tech commands. It does it all. Mills notices her robotic creations are doing something strange, and goes with the training team to that island.
I won't spoil the plot only tell you that it is a typical trope they follow. Of course there are battles, as the AI robots fight and learn from their combatants. But the story...it does have an awesome story though. The future where we could be cyborgs in a sense. Not using weapons yourself, but using machines to fire for you. They set up position and you give the go ahead, WITH TEXT FROM YOUR EYES! This movie made me think a lot about what could be. Don't get that confused and believe this movie required any thinking while watching. It doesn't. This is just a cool premise, on a wannabe origin story of Skynet.
