Britain's Ministry of Defence create a robot with fighting skills and powerful AI to help in a war, though the robot appears to become alive.

It is quite a good film and has some good acting. It looks lowish budget, though does have some high budget looking effects. It mostly takes place in a military base and it's lab. The film contains some bad language and also violence.

The disc cover says the aspect ratio is 2.35:1, but the film is actually presented on the disc at 1.78:1.

Audio options: 2.0 Stereo, 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. No subtitle option.

Extras: There are no extras on the disc (unless you count "scene selection"), just play, scene selection and set-up (the 2 different audio options). The cover states that there are is a downloadable mini documentary. It would have been much better to have the extras, such as documentaries, on the disc.
