Outside the Wire,  Lately, when you see Anthony Mackie in a movie you expect to see some knockouts. In the role of Captain Leo, he doesn’t disappoint, in fact, he pulls some moves that make goosebumps pop out all over your body. Thrown into the future with robots all over the place he becomes a super artificial intelligent android trying to outsmart humans.

Damson Idris acts out lieutenant Thomas Harp, a drone pilot you’ll likely compare to a desk soldier of sorts, very wimpy when it comes to combat, and is sent into the field because he defied the change of command or was he requested by the android, I would say both, you decide. Once Thomas discovers that Captain Leo is 'advanced' technology in biomechanics he begins to feel uneasy.

Captain Leo’s program is governed by commands within his code and needs to find a way to bypass them. After recruiting Lt. Harp they go on a secret mission to find a way of infiltrating the enemy’s organization and disarming nuclear rockets. Like most undercover missions they need to take part in unauthorized activity questioning their ethics or rather Lt. Harp is. 

Robots are used as soldiers with futuristic technology in play yet the scenery is very modern compared to warzones such as Syria or Iraq. Dealing with refugee camps run by the resistance brings out the compassionate side of Cpt. Leo and while he keeps a stern, cold composure you feel as though you can relate with him.

The frequent encounters with the militia attacks harden Lt. Harp and making him more proactive and less fearful creating a vibrant and determine soldier at the end. Meanwhile, we get to see Cpt. Leo (Anthony Mackie) in action with skills that seems impossible, every time Cpt. Leo gets in a fight he produces moves we haven’t commonly seen. 

Being a sentient android made him dangerous and Lt. Harp discovered just how much but too late. Cpt. Leo becomes independent from his initial programming allowing him to achieve more, whether it was for the good or bad of mankind is up to you to discover. 

Hope you enjoy the movie as much as I did.
