The new sci-fi thriller Atlas starring Jennifer Lopez was released on Netflix on May 24. Despite the fact that not even a week has passed since the premiere, users have made a lot of noise on social media, criticizing the movie.

According to ScreenRant, many films starring the famous actress are still very popular despite negative reviews. Lopez has starred in more than 130 films, TV series, documentaries and music videos, including the new action movie. Despite the fact that Atlas has an interesting plot based on artificial intelligence in a dystopian future, the movie was quickly labeled "garbage".

What the movie is about

Scientist Atlas Shepherd (Jennifer Lopez) has spent years searching for an escaped artificial intelligence terrorist known as Harlan. He was created to improve humanity, but now he wants to destroy humans.

Harlan's search leads the team to the planet GR-39 in the Andromeda Galaxy. Here, Atlas demonstrates a great deal of distrust of AI. However, as she is forced to cooperate with Smith, an interactive onboard tool, her attitude towards new technologies changes.

This evolution of trust is central to the sci-fi drama, which emphasizes the idea of the movie: while one AI bot threatens humanity, another helps to save it. The lack of empathy when it comes to artificial intelligence in this case leads to better understanding. Smith understands Atlas and does not react to her cynicism as a human would. He does not move away from her when she demonstrates her negative traits.

Atlas has a 17% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 5.6/10 rating on IMDb. While the reviews of the action movie acknowledge that Lopez makes a great effort to take the film to the next level, it ultimately collapses under the weight of a poorly written and superficial script. Currently, the critics' assessment is that it is one of the worst work in the star's career.
