review by
Mike Haberfelner

After the first model turned homicidal, Roger (Jamie Robertson) and his team have managed to create a near perfect android, and to test the creature, called One (Luke Robinson), Roger takes him home as extra household help for his family. Now Roger's family is anything but perfect though, his wife Shelley suffers from his outbursts of violence but is to weak to stand up for herself, his son Michael (Tom Taplin) is failing at school but tries to make it up with his rugby successes, and young daughter Andy (Marshall K. Hawkes) soon enjoys One's company more than that of any of the other family members. Roger isn't happy with One's performance, he considers him too weak-minded and not subservient enough to himself, so he plans to replace him with the new, "female" model, Two (Zoe Purdy). Now two soon shows skills running the household with almost dictatorial qualities, which impresses Roger but not the rest of the family, and Shelley is soon looking for a way to shut her down. What none of the family know however is that Two has an agenda of her own, she wants to rule over humankind, and to that end she soon starts murdering people, unbeknown to anyone else. But soon she finds she doesn't need Roger anymore and kills him - to the shock of his family, who suddenly find themselves locked into their home with a homicidal android, and the only one who could put up a fight with her is actually One. Thing is, Two is able to take over One at any given moment ...

 

A pretty clever movie about the beginnings of a robot uprising that blends science fiction and horror motives into an effective whole, but also delivers some food for thoughts outside the usual clichés films of this ilk usually follow. And that the film's peopled by interesting characters rather than your usual cannonfodder really draws one into the story, while the androids' rather eerie features do creep one out. And an atmospheric directorial effort and a solid cast make this one rather cool genre effort.
