Vice Plot Synopsis:

Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate resort: VICE, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian's mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all.

Vice (2015) Review

Vice (2015) is an American action adventure science fiction film that was filmed in Mobile, Alabama, USA. Director Brian A Miller (House of the Rising Sun (2011), The Outsider (2014), Caught in the Crossfire (2010)) did a horrible job with a budget of $15 million. The only thing I like about this movie is some of the action scenes, and that is the only reason why it got a score of four.

Roy (Thomas Jane - The Mist (2007), Deep Blue Sea (1999), Dreamcatcher (2003), Face/Off (1997)) is one mean determined detective that is willing to do just about anything to shut down Vice. Vice is a place that harbors obnoxious wealthy individuals, to make their fantasies real with… A.I. humanoids. The humanoids are like actual humans but they are stronger, and if they do take a fatal beating then there is a special team that comes in and takes them away to a special unit to be repaired. Upon being repaired, their memory is erased or at least that is what the units think. Kelly (Ambyr Childers - Gangster Squad (2013), 2 Guns (2013), The Master (2012)) is an A.I. who really desires a better life. She works a job that will take her nowhere in life and wants to move to somewhere that is quiet, calm and green. Kelly knows that there is danger lurking everywhere for herself and fellow A.I.s. Kelly teams up with Evan (Bryan Greenberg - Friends with Benefits (2011), Bride Wars (2009), Prime (2005), The Perfect Score (2004)) who is helping her find her true origins. They did not hesitate and moved before Julian’s (Bruce Willis - The Sixth Sense (1999), Die Hard (1988), The Fifth Element (1997), Twelve Monkeys (1995)) henchmen’s find them and shut them down.

If you would like to see Vice then go ahead but you might just be wasting your money and time so I would advice if you really want to see it then just sit tight and wait for it to be released on DVD or VOD. The movie does not have much to offer except for a few action scenes that are not great, but somewhat entertaining. I do not recommend this movie to anyone because it might be more enjoyable to stare out of your window.
