While borrowing from countless films in the genre, Brad Peyton's Atlas brings a unique discourse to spice things up in this action sci-fi.

Here, renowned singer and Hollywood icon Jennifer Lopez is Atlas Shephard, a woman whose mistrust of artificial intelligence goes deeper than anyone could think.

Ironically, she has to depend on her AI companion Smith when she is stranded on an alien planet while on a mission to capture a rogue AI named Harlan (Simu Liu).

Expectedly, the titular character evolves in the course of her journey, learning from her past mistakes to confront the monster she created.

There are important questions raised here, aptly mirroring humanity's present concern on the advancement and evolution of artificial intelligence. Director Brad Peyton is careful not to pick a side and just shows you how a technologically advanced society impacts its citizens positively and negatively.

Atlas has impressive visuals, commendable action, and a laudable performance from the film's leading lady. Lopez won't get a standing ovation for her outing here but midway, she was able to show the viewer that her acting chops are still there.

Simu Liu as the antagonist was more of cute than terrifying. I actually didn't expect much from him as a villain given the AI stuff but even then, he didn't leave much of an impression. 

Overall, I would say Atlas is more of a hit than a miss and those who love to see J-Lo kick ass will get a kick out of it for sure.
