Very often in futuristic sci-fi films, a storyline will consist of technology going too far and artificial intelligence wiping out the human race. What’s great about this film is that it puts a fresh spin on this concept. In Rise, humans predict that the development of AI technology will go too far. They decide to commit mass genocide against humanoid looking robots that live alongside them. One robot decides that enough is enough and attempts to put an end to the killing. This proof of concept short has a high production value and looks like it is ready for a feature length version; hopefully, this happens in the future.
