It is the 21st Century, and the Androids are in. No, I’m not talking about the smartphone operating system. I’m talking about robots, artificial intelligence, and autonomous life. In their jest to find an answer to death, scientists all over the world have been trying to find a way to replicate the human body in a way, that it can last forever.

There have been numerous movies in the last two decades and even before that, focusing on autonomous life and beings that can emulate human intelligence. Besides being totally entertaining, these films focus on fundamental topics like humanity and consciousness. Here’s the list of top robot and android movies ever. You can watch some of these best Robot movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.

11. Prometheus (2012)
Before people start shouting at me, I want to acknowledge that this movie which is a part of the Alien series, primarily focuses on, well, aliens. However, Michael Fassbender’s role as David is something that stands out throughout the movie. In the year 2089, two archaeologists and several crew members are aboard a spaceship. They are heading towards a planet which the crew thinks is the key to answering the most important question of human history. Who is our creator? Amidst the crew is an android David (Michael Fassbender) devoted to his maker Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce). Behind a bunch of nerds wanting to meet their makers, David has been given a task to find out the secret behind eternal life. What will happen when the answer to both questions is an excruciating death?
