It may have a decent amount of promise—Shailene Woodley and Jack Whitehall starring, a thought-provoking plot, a script co-written by Ant Hines (‘Borat’)—but nothing in this horrible misfire comes together to become anything even remotely entertaining. A decade in the future, people can buy lifelike robotic versions of themselves, but when Elaine and Charles discover their robot versions have fallen in love with each other and run away, the humans realize they need to find them and destroy them. What could have been a sly ‘Black Mirror’-esque episode of television instead plods along without any sense of humor or even a sense of what it’s trying to accomplish.
