Film Review – Tau (2018)
For Netflix, any film with serious talent attached is a solid addition to their ever-growing library. Although we’d all prefer that films are viewed with an artistic eye, Netflix wants one thing from each piece of new content: more subscribers. Any piece of entertainment they release might improve their subscriber base. So for Tau, a movie with talent like Maika Monroe and Gary Oldman, good critical reception might be the path to thousands of subscribers from which Netflix can improve its operations.

The film follows a once street-smart grifter, Julia (Monroe) who is the latest victim kidnapped and held captive in a fatal experiment. The only thing standing in the way of her freedom is Tau, an advanced artificial intelligence developed by Alex (Skrein), her captor. Tau is armed with a battalion of drones that automate a futuristic smart house. Tau’s potential is only limited by his understanding of the world he exists in, but Tau is ready for more. Julia, showing resourcefulness and courage, must race against time to bridge the boundaries between man and machine, connect to Tau and win her freedom before she suffers the same fate as the previous subjects.
