The first Code 8 movie, was never going to be an award winner but at least it had an element of danger, pacing and excitement. Regrettably, its sequel, seems to be more a vehicle for woke tropes than an actual sci fi film. It appears to be mostly about people from diverse backgrounds being either abused by "the system" or co-opted into it, as state sponsored abusers. The results feels like what it is. A moral statement viewed from a particular point of view, rather than an exciting, sci fi film, which is what, in this reviewers opinion, it should have been. Its slow paced, not terribly exciting and really goes nowhere interesting but then, how could it? In summary, I, for one, am sick and tired of having simple escapist entertainment hi-jacked to peddle a specific world view. That is what activism and social commentary are for. Of course, the irony too, is the harder this kind of thing is foisted on people, in my experience, the more they tend to reject it.

This was a lot of Code 8 to watch in a short period of time. I definitely skipped through large portions of this film. It seemed like the first film. I maybe should not have watched the first film. Aibo was a dumb idea. Super cute and sweet ending. Fun sequences. A little long.
