We had been out today to see the yesterday started Movie Vice at the Reel Cinemas at the Dubai Mall as Reel Cinemas is not showing it at The Beach or Marina Mall outlets.
The Plot in short: Businessman Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate holiday maker resort: “VICE”, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial robot (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian’s mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down the corruption of Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all.
To be honest the reason I booked the tickets for the Movie was that Bruce Willis is in it. I did not watch the Trailer in advance nor did I read the plot in advance. The outcome is a very pleasant surprise.
Bruce Willis plays once again a villain and is really cool in his role. But the show was clearly stolen by Thomas Jane who plays a cop without respect to his superiors who does his own thing and Ambyr Childers who plays the artificial escapee. Both where excellent in their role which was a big push for the movie.
Roy: Not Bad for a Robot!
The story playing in a dark future where safety is not really given and people live out their fantasies in the Vice Resort. Basically taken from the Movie Westworld (1973) the story of Vice is more developed on a personal touch between the artificial robot and the humans. The movie is taking the one or another twist which keeps watching it interesting. The story itself was original and uncommon and I found myself not a single minute not focusing on the movie waiting what might happen next. Of course you get plenty of Action, gunfights and blood in this packed Action/Adventure.
In the end this was a good Movie with the option left open on a sequel in the end scene.
