Atlas hit Netflix late last night... shortly after the review embargo lifted. This isn't usually a great sign, and sure enough, the first reviews for Brad Peyton's sci-fi thriller have been pretty terrible.

The movie stars Jennifer Lopez (Hustlers, Cell) as Atlas Shepard, "a woman fighting for humanity in a future where an AI soldier has determined the only way to end war is to end humanity. To out think this rogue AI, Atlas must work with the one thing she fears most — another AI."

We didn't review the movie in full, but It's basically a hodgepodge of well-worn tropes and ideas that have been executed a lot better in previous movies, further let down by a by-the-numbers script, atrocious dialogue, and an unconvincing lead performance.

Some have come out in defence of Atlas, but positive verdicts are scarce on Rotten Tomatoes, where the movie currently sits at an abysmal 11%.

The official synopsis reads: "Atlas Shepherd (Jennifer Lopez), a brilliant but misanthropic data analyst with a deep distrust of artificial intelligence, joins a mission to capture a renegade robot with whom she shares a mysterious past. But when plans go awry, her only hope of saving the future of humanity from A.I. is to trust it."

Atlas also stars Simu Liu, Sterling K. Brown, Gregory James Cohan, Abraham Popoola, Lana Parrilla, and Mark Strong.
