I wondered how they'd make a movie out of this. They succeeded. It was definitely intriguing and exciting.

It takes a lot of guts to attempt to capture the essence of Asimov in a movie, and even more to cast Will Smith as the hero, Del Spooner - Robot Hater.     Will has "funny" imbedded in his programming (Fresh Prince; Men in Black; Wild Wild West et al), but that new body! It took me quite a while to get past that early shower scene, and the "back" button on the remote was overheating too.     He's sharp, he's smart, he's cool and he's buffed, but he's not your …

I, Robot
The movie `I, Robot' takes its cue from Asimov's collection of short stories by the same name. It is not based on any one of the stories from the collection, choosing instead of add a newer tale still firmly establishing itself in the premise of the book: The three Laws of Robotics.     The three laws are: 1) A robot may not injure a human being or through inaction allow a human being to come to harm. 2) A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders …

Disassociate this movie from the book by Isaac Asimov. The movie contains the three laws of robotics, from Asimov's classic book, and the flaw in the three laws, but that's about all it borrows from the book. Nevertheless, it is a fun action flick with enough suspense to keep you interested to the very end.    Will Smith does a good job as the police officer with an ax to grind against robots and James Cromwell is always a pleasure to watch.    It's a good, …

First of all, I haven't read Isaac Asimov's "I, Robot," so I don't have any basis on which to compare the book to the film. However, I have watched many science fiction flicks. I enjoy adventures such as the original "Star Wars" trilogy, action flicks like the recent "Resident Evil: Apocalypse," and the type of sci-fi that leaves you in a reflective mood, such as "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."     I expected "I, Robot" to lean towards the "Resident Evil" genre of sci-fi. …

After suffering through Will Smith's sleepwalk performance in MIB II, I was pleased by the energy level he brings to this fast paced fun movie. Smith lives in a world where robots are commonplace, serving humans (reminicent of the 4th Planet of the Apes movie) as nannies, butlers, and general servants. He is called to solve the murder of a scientist, who was his friend. The only possible suspect seems to be a robot. The only problem is that robots are subject to Isaac Asimov's 3 laws, meaning that …

Pros: Great FX and Smith.     Cons: Supporting characters are not very deep.     The Bottom Line: A classic Summer Movie that will entertain.     Tales of a dark and foreboding future where technology has run amuck have been cautioning viewers ever since Orwell made the phrase “Big Brother” a household expression. Other films such as �”, “Westworld”, “Blade Runner” and “The Terminator” often show …
