The Creator

Action, Adventure, Drama Rated: PG-13 133 min

Against the backdrop of a war between humans and robots with artificial intelligence, a former soldier finds the secret weapon, a robot in the form of a young child. Stunning visual effects, visionary environments and sharp performances from John David Washington, Gemma Chan, Allison Janney and Ken Watanabe make this fast-paced sci-fi film from director Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) worth watching more than once.

The Creator is sleek, but thoughtfully so. It’s impressive, but humble. The film is, to risk hyperbole, a true vision, a filmmaker reasserting their unique talent for spectacle.” — Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
The Creator may be an effective interrogation of American imperiousness and imperialism, but it also has a tender, anguished heart.” — Alison Willmore, New York Magazine/Vulture
