DVD Review: A.I. RISING

A.I. RISING (aka Ederlezi Rising) was directed by Lazar Bodroza from a screenplay by Zoran Neskovic and stars Stoya, Sebastian Cavazza and Maruša Majer.

On a lonely mission to Alpha Centauri, Milutin is teamed up with Nimani 1345, a female cyborg designed to fulfill his every need. At first thrilled to be able to control her, Milutin grows tired of having his desires fulfilled so easily. Longing for human intimacy, Milutin alters Nimani’s programmed responses, but in doing so he risks the mission’s security — and his own life. This mind-blowing, visually sumptuous space journey will take you both beyond the stars and deep inside your soul.

A.I. Rising is in the same vein at Ex Machina and Alita: Battle Angel but this movie is more of a soft porn that takes place in outer space than anything else. This Serbian romantic sci-fi thriller follows astronaut Milutin (Sebastian Cavazza) who ends up falling for his female android companion Nimani (Stoya) that ends up rejecting him when he decides to take their sexcapades to the next level. He’s lonely and wants a relationship with her and she can’t comply so he slowly spirals into a deep depression that doesn’t end well.

The front of the packaging features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes movie details, some images and specs. The DVD disc is flat grey and features the movie logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, I didn’t have high expectations going into A.I. Rising and it ended up being a major snoozefest than anything else. Sorry but the entertainment value for this one was at a low level. The concept was interesting enough but there’s just not enough going on with these two characters besides lots of sex and plenty of nudity thanks to Stoya. I will add the movie has some good looking visual effects and the cinematography is impressive but unfortunately it’s not enough to salvage this space disaster. A.I Rising will be available on DVD on March 12th.
