Best Artificial Intelligence Movies

Artificial intelligence has been a recurring theme of the silver screen since its earliest days, captivating (and frequently, horrifying) audiences with the prospect of sentient robots capable of equaling mankind’s unique traits like consciousness and ability to feel emotions. Over the decades, potential technological advancements were imagined in a myriad of ways. But more than that, sci-fi movies have also asked questions related to the moral, ethical and societal consequences of the use of technology like AI. In this article, we will be listing the 23 Best artificial intelligence movies that you can watch in 2022. So, in no particular order, let’s dive in:

The Matrix (1999)

It’s been over two decades since audiences were invited to take the red pill and question everything they knew about reality with the Matrix. This cyberpunk masterpiece is set in a not-too-distant future where a robotic AI system has enslaved human beings who are, however, unaware they’re trapped inside a simulated reality. Computer programmer/ hacker “Neo ” stumbles upon the truth and joins a rebellion together with others who had been freed against the Matrix, setting off an epic showdown between humans and dark-suited, sunglasses-sporting ‘Agents’, who’re in autonomous software programs. It’s hard to capture the full extent of the movie’s visionary concept. And what is the Matrix after all you may ask? Well, to quote directly from the movie, “You can’t be told what the matrix is, you have to see it for yourself”. The Matrix series remains a must-watch even after all these years.

Synopsis: Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? What if you couldn’t awaken? How would you know the difference between dream and reality? When a beautiful stranger (Carrie Ann Moss) leads computer hacker Neo (Keanu Reeves) to a forbidding underworld, he discovers the shocking truth- the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber-intelligence. Neo joins legendary and dangerous rebel warrior Morpheus (Lawrence Fishburne) in the battle to destroy the illusion enslaving humanity.

Directors: Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski Top cast: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, Joe Pantoliano. Critic’s rating: 80% Rotten Tomatoes, 8.7/10 IMDb

Ex Machina (2015)

With the debate over artificial intelligence and whether the technology will ever become fully conscious as the starting point, Ex Machina follows a young coder as he gets to spend a week at his reclusive boss’s remote mansion, testing his latest creation – an AI robot. The task is to determine whether the humanoid, Ava, is capable of demonstrating humanlike intelligence. However, not everything is as it seems, as the humans behind this tech project come to find out, with some fatal results. This brilliant AI movie has also won an Oscar for Best Visual Effects.

Synopsis: Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson) , a programmer at a huge Internet company, wins a contest that enables him to spend a week at the private estate of Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac), his firm’s brilliant CEO. When he arrives, Caleb learns that he has been chosen to be the human component in a Turing test to determine the capabilities and consciousness of Ava (Alicia Vikander), a beautiful robot. However, it soon becomes evident that Ava is far more self-aware and deceptive than either man imagined.

Director: Alex Garland Top cast: Alicia Vikander, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Sonoya Mizuno. Critic’s rating: 92% Rotten Tomatoes, 7.1/10 IMDb

Blade Runner (1982)

When it comes to the best sci-fi films, it’s hard to top Blade Runner. Based on author Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’, Blade Runner is the quintessential cyberpunk classic that plunges viewers into a dystopian universe from which is hard to escape untouched. Set in a neon-lit 2019 LA, the movie pits bioengineered humanoids (human replicants developed without the capacity to have emotions) against real humans. After six Replicants escape to earth in a bid to locate their creator and extend their limited life span of four years, a Blade Runner, played by Harrison Ford, is tasked with finding and shooting these humanoids.

Synopsis: “Blade Runner” Deckard (Harrison Ford) is forced by the police Boss (M. Emmet Walsh) to continue his old job as Replicant Hunter. His assignment: eliminate four escaped Replicants from the colonies who have returned to Earth. Before starting the job, Deckard goes to the Tyrell Corporation and he meets Rachel (Sean Young), a Replicant girl he falls in love with.

Director: Stanley Kubrick Top cast: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James. Critic’s rating: 89% Rotten Tomatoes, 7.7/10 IMDb

2001: A Space Odyssey (1964)

Visionary director Stanley Kubrick set out to explore the idea of human coexistence with sentient computers in outer space in this futuristic epic that will have you thinking of red lights in… shall we say… a very different way. We won’t unveil much as to the why, but the cult classic delves deep into the reliance of humans on technology – and what happens when intelligent robots simply decide to rebel and take over. It’s a pretty chilling thought, especially when this dark apocalyptic thriller gets to the now infamous “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.”

Synopsis: An imposing black structure provides a connection between the past and the future in this enigmatic adaptation of a short story by revered author Arthur C. Clarke. When Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship’s computer intelligent system, HAL, begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time.

Director: Stanley Kubrick Top cast: Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester, Douglas Rain. Critic’s rating: 92% Rotten Tomatoes, 8.3/10 IMDb

A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)

Stanley Kubrick had long planned to adapt author Brian Aldiss’s sci-fi short story Super-Toys Last All Summer Long into a movie before his death in 1999. Afterwards, Steven Spielberg inherited the rights to the tale, intending to follow through on Kubrick’s original vision. The unrealized project became A.I. Artificial Intelligence, a film about David, a young cybertronic humanoid designed to help a couple overcome the absence of their ailing son. As a first of the kind, David is capable of having human emotions and the plot centers around his attempts to discover his true nature – and the secret behind his identity. Viewers are led to question the deeper issues behind using AI to create human-like systems and the collectible responsibility it should bring with it.

Synopsis: A robotic boy, the first programmed to love, David (Haley Joel Osment) is adopted as a test case by a Cybertronics employee (Sam Robards) and his wife (Frances O’Connor). Though he gradually becomes their child, a series of unexpected circumstances make this life impossible for David. Without final acceptance by humans or machines, David embarks on a journey to discover where he truly belongs, uncovering a world in which the line between robot and machine is both vast and profoundly thin.

Minority Report (2002)

Making a comeback, just a year after the release of A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Steven Spielberg delved once more into AI technology with Minority Report. Starring Tom Cruise as Precrime police officer John Anderton, this neo-noir movie is set primarily in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia in a distant future, where PreCrime cops are able to arrest criminals based on foreknowledge provided by three psychics known as ‘precogs’. The dilemma arises when Anderton is accused of a future crime and has to run from his own unit while trying to prove his innocence.

Minority Report turned out to be predictive of modern computer science, foretelling technologies that have since become commonplace, including personalized ads, voice automation and gesture controlled computers. Even predictive policing, arguably Minority Report’s biggest theme, has become a reality nowadays. PredPol, an AI-based tool, has been deployed in approximately 40 agencies across the United States since 2012 to predict and prevent future crime.

Synopsis: Based on a story by famed science fiction writer Philip K. Dick, “Minority Report” is an action-detective thriller set in Washington D.C. in 2054, where police utilize a psychic technology to arrest and convict murderers before they commit their crime. Tom Cruise plays the head of this Precrime unit and is himself accused of the future murder of a man he hasn’t even met.

The Terminator (1984)

This Arnie action-packed movie has become one of the most popular sci-fi movies ever made – and it may be the reason why so many of us are distrustful of artificial intelligence technology. In it, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a cyborg assassin sent back in time from 2029 to 1984 by Skynet, a sentient computer, in order to kill the woman that would one day give birth to the man responsible for saving humanity against a robot threat. James Cameron’s dystopian machine dominance film explores the topic of AI consciousness, superintelligence and tech ethics.

Synopsis: Disguised as a human, a cyborg assassin known as a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) travels from 2029 to 1984 to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). Sent to protect Sarah is Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn), who divulges the coming of Skynet, an artificial intelligence system that will spark a nuclear holocaust. Sarah is targeted because Skynet knows that her unborn son will lead the fight against them. With the virtually unstoppable Terminator in hot pursuit, she and Kyle attempt to escape.

Director: James Cameron Top cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn. Critic’s rating: 100% Rotten Tomatoes, 8.1/10 IMDb

RoboCop (1987)

Fascination with all things ‘cyberpunk’ reached fever pitch in the 80’s, not just with cult classics like Blade Runner (1982) and The Terminator (1984), but also greatly thanks to Paul Verhoeven’s human/machine action-packed revenge thriller – Robocop. The backdrop of this sci-fi movie is dystopian, crime-ridden Detroit where a police officer named Alex J. Murphy is recreated by a shady megacorporation – Omni Consumer Products – as a cyborg known as RoboCop after being murdered by a vicious criminal gang. The part-man, part-machine super-cop is then tasked with cleaning up the city’s streets, while struggling to understand some of his repressed (human) memories as they resurface. RoboCop is said to be the movie that first raised the issue of AI Ethics, laying out some of the potential dangers of misusing the technology. Despite being over three decades old, RoboCop remains one of the top artificial intelligence films ever made.

Synopsis: In a dystopic, gang-ridden Detroit in near-collapse. In an effort to stamp out crime, the forces in power reconstruct the body of a policeman, killed on duty, within a steel shell and call it RoboCop. Plagued by memories of his death, he hunts down the supervillian responsible for it.

I am Your Man (Ich bin dein Mensch)

This German romantic dramedy explores the growing bond between a skeptical scientist, Alma, and an artificial intelligence humanoid, who she is temporarily hosting as part of an experiment for a study. The robot, Tom, was designed specifically to recreate Alma’s idea of a perfect partner, being perfectly tailored to meet her deepest romantic expectations and needs. However, living with this almost pathologically perfect robot companion doesn’t turn out to be quite as expected, as deeper questions of existentialism and the interconnection between human life, love and technology seep through the relationship. More than a rom-com, I Am You Man is a thought-provoking take on the complexity of AI and the man-machine co-existence.

Synopsis: Alma is a scientist at the famous Pergamon Museum in Berlin. In order to obtain research funds for her work, she is persuaded to participate in an extraordinary study. For three weeks, she has to live with a humanoid robot tailored to her character and needs, whose artificial intelligence is designed to be the perfect life partner for her.
