    This Cold War-era science fiction thriller is often overlooked and underappreciated, but it is actually quite terrifying and contains a warning about the peril of letting technology control us that is still very much applicable today.

    All of the actors provide understatedly good performances, and the era’s Cold War vibe is accurately conveyed. The tension is tight throughout the film and the dialogue reflects the taut and brittle feel and progression of events.

    Colossus is not a typical antagonist because it lacks the capacity for moral judgment and is hence amoral. Its purpose in life is to help humans, and it plans to accomplish so by protecting them from themselves, as this is its programming. Colossus knows that people are the biggest danger to society. As a result, the nation shifts its focus from protecting its citizens and preventing damage to others to regulating the actions and lives of its citizens by limiting their liberties. We can see that Colossus is driven by the commands of its programming and by the cold logic it deploys in order to realize its ultimate objective of human oneness inside a utopian society. Inconveniently, getting to Utopia will cost something.

    The movie talks about how we can’t predict or account for all possible outcomes while building AI. This is especially perilous if you’re planning on entrusting ethical and moral judgements to an AI. What would happen if this machine had the ability to seek self-improvement or even an instinct for self-preservation?
