Atlas would have worked a lot better had it not been used as a vehicle for thinly veiled social engineering.

Woke nonsense, AI fear mongering and climate agenda's in the form of depopulation, are front and centre, to the point where you simply can't ignore its infuriatingly tiresome, finger wagging.

A drippy robot named Zoe, that whinges about its pronouns, climate change alarmism with AI that wants to "reset" humanity (heard that before?).

Worse still, this bland, lecturing story, goes nowhere remotely interesting. Its predictable. formulaic fare.

Is there an upside? Its pretty limited. Lots of sci fi eye candy and exposition driven special effects are well done but frankly, that's about it.

In summary, a hollow exposition driven sci fi shell, filled with lecturing alarmist agenda's. I'll pass.

Great movie. Story was interesting and acting was good too and most importantly no political propaganda and agenda. Thank you, creators. Really enjoyed the movie.

Better than expected!

I saw one or two still images from 'Atlas' in the lead up to watching it and I wasn't getting good vibes. Happily, I actually really enjoyed this 2024 movie - another reason to not judge a book by its cover and all that. Of course, it is nothing near perfection and has a couple of issues, e.g. a slightly overlong run time and an underwhelming villain, though overall I liked this.

I do tend to enjoy seeing Jennifer Lopez, looking at the films I've viewed her in (nine titles with this one) she hasn't let me down yet; this is another showing worth watching, in my eyes at least. As noted, elsewhere Simu Liu's antagonist is forgettable. That isn't all his fault, his performance could've perhaps been better but it's more so the way the character is made to act visually that facilitates the dullness.

I'd recommend this, though a quick look around on the usual movie sites suggests that isn't a commonly held belief. shrugs

Somehow this is the worst JLO movie of the year. No stars or review for this terrible, terrible movie.
