Mother/Android has left Netflix viewers ‘destroyed’ and ‘sobbing uncontrollably’. 

The movie, starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Algee Smith, follows a couple called Georgia Olsen and Sam Hoth, who are on the run from thousands of evil robots that have turned on their owners. 

Its official synopsis reads: “In a post-apocalyptic world rocketed by a violent android uprising, a young pregnant woman and her boyfriend desperately search for safety.”

Viewers have taken to Twitter and expressed how emotional they felt after watching it.

One fan penned: “Mother/Android – WHAT THE HELL? This movie destroyed me… Still crying.”

Another added: “Wow Chloë Grace Moretz’s performance in Mother/Android on Netflix is incredible! I did not expect to get that emotional!”

Mother/Android, f*** the critics,” commented a third viewer. “The movie is so great. Georgia narrating that letter she wrote to her son broke my heart I loved it.”

A fourth wrote: “When I heard what this movie was about, I was PUMPED to see a kickass movie about surviving amongst killer bots… and not sob uncontrollably… damn.”

Netflix Viewers Are Saying ‘Don’t Look Up’ Is ‘Flawless’

However, others weren’t as impressed and took to the platform and blasted the film’s ending, writing: “I think I’ve seen this film before and I didn’t like the ending.”

“This Mother/Android film is useless and sad for no reason,” a second mused. 

A third penned: “Mother/Android is another movie that shows us why we shouldn’t be messing with alternative Iife.

“Decent movie, but I wish there was a bit more of a background as to why it all went down. Still a worthwhile watch if you’re a sucker for the post-apocalyptic world like myself.”

Teasing the release on Twitter, the film’s director, Mattson Tomlin, commented: “My directorial debut Mother/Android is finally available on Netflix outside of the US!

“Making movies is insane and I am extremely thankful and proud that I got to make such a personal first film.”
