will smith isn't my favourite actor and at times he seemed out of place but the twist of the "villian's" identity when revealed had me as that possibility hadn't occured to me, i would watch this again if only for the special effects
Excellent fast paced movie. Will Smith at his best, loads of action and great lines.
I really enjoyed seeing Will Smith in a serious Sci-Fi movie, loads of action fast moving great to watch. Will showed a great athletic body what a dream.
The robots were something else he would... Read more have to be part Robot himself to get those suckers.
If not seen this DVD it is certainly worth a view.
Nothing like the original 1950's short stories that share the title, which after reading the originals I have decided is a good thing - I find Asimov's stuff pretty dry and unexciting, which can't be said for this movie!
I Robot is a very smart Sci Fi film and walks in the footsteps of Minority Report for sheer style, acting, effects and most importantly a great story. Continuing with the themes explored in previous... Read more films such as Terminator 1, 2 & 3 and The Matrix we enter a world on the edge of a new tomorrow. Robots have become an integral part of society generally taking those positions and jobs that humans would prefer not to (garbage collection, cleaning etc). The newest robot is the NS 5 soon to be released to a wonderous public. Trouble is the NS 5's creator has been murdered apparently by a rogue NS 5 called Sonny. It is up to streetwise detective Will Smith and a smart but uptight executive and scientist at US robotics. Theoretically no robot can harm a human because of the 3 laws of robotics. However Sonny does not have those laws implanted on him. He also appears to think independantly and has dreams and emotions. With one of the best CGI car chase scenes ever scene, smart and witty script and an unusually restrained Will Smith add this movie to your summer view lists ASAP.
found this disappointing. Will Smith was OK but think he is pretty overrated. Didn't think the CGI was that flash either.
Thought it was well made, good acting and worth the watch for most ages i reckon. A++++++
Starsky and Hutch meets Bicentennial Man. I liked Asimov's novel (I think, it's been a while) but the movie left something missing. Will Smith's character is an absolute cliche - star cop with a paranoid... Read more attitude, who gets kicked off the force but then saves the day. Nice special effects though, and nice Audis in 2035!
If you haven't read the book you may enjoy the film more. The short stories (1940's) were intelligent & influential & as a compilation would be hard to convey on film.The casting of Smith is a giveaway... Read more that the film has sacrificed some intelligence for entertainment.
This movie was ok but not great, if you like Will Smith should definalty watch.
