Mother/Android is a 2021 sci-fi thriller about a young woman and her boyfriend who try to escape the new war with artificial intelligence. Days away from the arrival of their first child, they must cross a stronghold of the android uprising, in hopes of reaching safety before giving birth.

Written and directed by Mattson Tomlin. Produced by Bill Block, Rafi Crohn, Amy Greene, Adam Kassan, Charles Miller and Matt Reeves.


The 6th & Idaho Productions-Miramax co-production stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Steve M. Robertson, Raúl Castillo, Oscar Wahlberg, Algee Smith and Kate Avallone.



“An argument can be made that things move a little too quickly in the final moments. That being said, there are some nice callbacks and the further evolution of characters continues. Mother/Android may not be as sci-fi as the title would make a person believe, but it is still entertaining.” AIPT


“Even when Mother/Android effectively tugs at your heartstrings or makes you cringe from unexpected violence, it’s undermined by adhering too close to a conventional formula and arc. Tomlin competently directs, and the cast engenders empathy well, but this is a well-worn battle fought many times over within this subgenre.” Bloody Disgusting

“As a filmmaker, Tomlin (Solomon Grundy) does a good job with the chases, violence and suspense. But he’s too reluctant to abandon the Terminator voice-over narration and hard-pressed to do much that’s new or interesting with this survival quest plot […] But with Moretz here to ensure it’s at least a story we invest in, bringing emotional heft to the moments that beg for it…” Movie Nation
