The fact that “Aimee” is the first film in history to feature a character created entirely using modern AI technology is a significant milestone in the world of filmmaking. While that may sound like a step forward to some, it was a step backwards in regards to the storytelling capabilities. As it often seemed derivative of what it was trying to accomplish.
Scott Keyes is a brilliant but misanthropic computer hacker who generally prefers the company of computers to human beings. But Keyes’ life is about to be turned upside-down. Thanks to some code-breaking by his partners Hunter and Gazelle, Keyes is finally able to unlock AIMEE, an incredibly advanced Artificial Intelligence program that appears in the form of a beautiful and seductive womanSynopsis
Aimee had some promising ideas but fell short of delivering a satisfying final product. It often felt short of its full potential in a world full of hackers and A.I. For fans of Full Moon Features it could be known to be limited due to its production value and C-Grade graphics and acting.
Dallas Schaefer delivers a solid performance as Scott Keyes in “Aimee.” However, the character’s persona makes it difficult for the audience to relate to or sympathize with him, it caused a disconnect that is hard to maintain focus or interest on the film itself. The supporting characters in “Aimee” are underwritten and don’t contribute significantly to the film. It’s frustrating as the viewer for “Aimee” to feel more like a short film that wasn’t finished rather than a feature length film.
Overall, if you’re a fan of Full Moon Features this may be more enjoyable for you. I typically enjoy the campiness of their work, “Aimee: The Visitor” tried too hard to out do itself throughout the film.
Overall Grade: 1/5 Stars
