'Outside the Wire' - Movie Review

Damson Idris is Thomas Harp, a drone pilot in the year 2036 who disobeys orders and gets shipped to the front line of a war in the Ukraine as punishment. There he's assigned to Captain Leo (Anthony Mackie), who is himself the latest advancement in robotics and AI - a very human-acting man who is actually an android super-soldier.

It's well produced, but at its heart it's just another war movie with our rookie fighter learning that things look and feel very different on the ground than they do from the screen of a drone. The people who created the movie think they've created something new and different by tossing in moral conundrums around AI soldiers, but it's been done before. Which would still be okay if it was done well, but sadly it was not.
