Colossus: The Forbin Project

1h 40m
Science Fiction, Thriller
Forbin is the designer of an incredibly sophisticated computer that will run all of America's nuclear defenses. Shortly after being turned on, it detects the existence of Guardian, the Soviet counterpart, previously unknown to US Planners. Both computers insist that they be linked, and after taking safeguards to preserve confidential material, each side agrees to allow it. As soon as the link is established the two become a new Super computer and threaten the world with the immediate launch of nuclear weapons if they are detached. Colossus begins to give its plans for the management of the world under its guidance. Forbin and the other scientists form a technological resistance to Colossus which must operate underground.

This is the first movie (from many) that I've seen where the human kind (good guys) actually lose. Stunned and intrigued if this is also the fact in other older movies.

A computer scientist and his staff develop a super computer that's assigned the task of the defense of the U.S. Once online, the computer gets a little help from a super computer developed by the U.S.S.R., and the problems begin. Things get interesting in a hurry as the computers decide that man is best not left to his own devices. This movie's got a neat trick up its sleeve in that it doesn't really develop any of the characters before it launches into the story of the computer Colossus. But, as we experience the battle between man and machine, we become fond of many of the characters. Doctor Forbin is very smug and aloof in the beginning but as he struggles to regain control of the situation, he becomes more and more likeable, even heroic. He and Dr. Cleo Markham become more than associates under the watchful eye of the peeping tom Colossus. The build-up to their romance is involving. To add to the success of this movie, it comes complete with an awesome ending.

This film is an overlooked classic. Very rarely seen on TV. It is both a science fiction tale and a Cold War drama.

The United States creates a super computer to control its defence systems. This advanced machine has its own intelligence so that it can absorb the mass of data required to manage More
