“World world without rules. Paradise on Earth?”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate futuristic resort: VICE, where anything goes and the wealthy 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.

The robot staff is reset every night. Childers plays one of the robots who, thanks to an error, winds up with every memory of her entire experience at the facility, leading her to seek revenge against the resort's owner (Willis).”

This film’s plot is adapted from the 1973 movie “Westworld”.

…This disposable Lionsgate cheapie centers around a futuristic pleasure factory where androids exist to fulfill men's twisted rape-and-murder fantasies. …
Justin Chang, Variety
…“Vice” is a cheap, unimaginative version of “Blade Runner”… Dystopian sci-fi for dummies…
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
…“Vice” takes the basic premise from 1973’s Westworld and morphs it into an incoherent slog. … [1½/4]
Clayton Dillard, Slant
…dopey musical score and cheesy photography… an intriguing sci-fi thriller, but, in the end, it doesn’t do enough with its ideas. … [2/4]
