Entertaining 3D action film, (now also available in blue ray and even in 3D blue ray)!
My only objections are to the excessive product placement(s) and glorifying/excessive usage of guns.
The moral and philosophical questions of artificial intelligence were interesting. Probably deserves 4 stars overall.
If you enjoyed the books, don't bother. This has very little to do with the books. Also Will Smith plays the same character that he always plays (Men In Black movies, Independence day etc.). It would seem that he has a very limit range. If you can get through all of that and enjoy movies that are more about special effects than actual story, then you will enjoy the movie otherwise, don't bother.
Asimov fans would like it but there is a sense that something is missing... ah yes, all the clevel deductions are gone and are replaced by chaise scenes and annoying extras.
Nevertheless, it has more thought in it than most action movies and is worth watching... oh and Susan Calton seems lost half the time (and is not the strict and calculating genius she is in the books)... and she is hot (as opposed to the book), but I'm totally cool with the latter unfaithfulness to the original story.
Excellent Movie will watch it again but on blu ray
loved it, will get it on bluray
good movie, great action scenes
Here Hollywood makes a nonsense of Asimov's robot stories. A bad film.
Not really my thing, but I actually found it more entertaining that I expected. Good special effects and Will Smith as always, made it worth watching.
Fairly lacklustre sci-fi detective story which deals with some of the themes of Blade Runner but doesn't reach its inspired heights.
What an absolutely fantastic performance, yet again, by Will Smith .. great bod too !! Probably wouldn't suit every one, especially those who can't come to grips with robots, but all in all a top viewing
A great movie, lots of fast action, good story line & great one liners from Will Smith. Very enjoyable & good for the whole family.
Excellent sci-fi, true to the original story and doesn't rely on the action to carry the movie
We thoroughly enjoyed this movie and think that Asimov would've been impressed. Just the right amount of tension and comedy.
Unfortunately I missed this at the cinema.I don't usually like this type of blockbuster but this one was great, with some terrific action "set-pieces". It looked wonderful on my 101cm but no home system could beat the impact this must have had at the movie house.
Decent enough movie. Kids enjoyed it.
Adapted from the famous novel by Isaac Asimov that began an award winning series of science fiction this screenplay is lighter in its treatment of the moral and ethical questions raised by the Laws of Robots. While it excels in computerised action scenes it avoids the hard questions and settles for soft romance and the triumph of a good heart in a robot that developed a personality and a conscience. The animators are winners here with considerable support from Will Smith who keeps this film watchable.
Good movie and special effects are great.
creepy memories of hal from 2001 space odyssey too
This is one fabulous movie. Awesome special effects and we see Will Smith take on a more intense character. Its not just big action scences (though it does these well too!). Watch it! Don't miss out.
Great Science fiction Movie with believable Special Effects.
Better than I thought it would be. Good mix of action and fun.
typical big budget action/thriller, enjoyable but nothing special
Well handled action with above average CGI. The moral and philosophical issues that Asimov raised in his "I, Robot" stories are lost. Will Smith just didn't seem right as the lead character in this.
Not a fan of the futuristic style of movie, but thought this one was quite good. Always been a Will Smith fan, & once again he made the movie watchable.
Great Movie but deffinetly not for CHILDREN
Interesting ideas, but a little slow for a SciFi buff.
I was expecting a very futuristic and difficult to watch film, but ended up finding myself caught up in this great action flick that has all the ingredients for a must see movie. Will Smith, very watchable, for both male and female viewers.
Not a deep treatise on the issues addressed in the movie. A good movie if you don't want total fluff, but don't want to think too hard either.
another great movie - bit violent in parts. Has great special affects and lots of action, along with the usual Will Smith dry humour - one the boys will also like.
Surprisingly good for a Wil Smith flick. Packed with Smith's one-liners, but a good story line and good characters. I'd recommend this to anybody except Granny.
Great Sci-fi movie and definitely worth watching.
Enjoyable riff on Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics. Very much an action film, it only hints at its more cerebral literary origins. Watch this for Will Smith and the cool FX; if you are looking for an intellectual exploration of man vs. machine add the Battlestar Galactica 2003 mini-series to your queue instead.
Will Smith is great in this action movie about the future, plenty of action and fans of MIB and MIB2 will get something out of this movie as its along the same lines. Great.
Ok movie. Fun but didn't leave a lasting impression.
An entertaining story of technology evolving its own conscience & power.
Definitley not to be missed great and possibly very true story line.
Very well made definitley the way the future is heading and once again will smith is great.
Will Smith being himself. Liked the robot though.
This action comedy was very enjoyable, they've spruced a basic storyline and chucked in evil robots and other high tech stuff. The 'who dunnit' gets you riveted until the very end.
Amazing how the robots look so lifelike, mindboggeling.
I love really well thought out science fiction movies that have story lines that are not too far fetched that the movie becomes totally unbelievable. Thankfully "I, Robot" is one of these! It was fantastic!
Great Movie, love Will Smith in whatever he does.
Great special effects, an intelligently construed premise drawn from the pen of Isaac Asimov, and sumptuous set design from a director, Alex Proyas, who's made this his hallmark, but ultimately descends into formulaic Hollywood territory.
Finally, a Will Smith movie I liked!
Worth watching only so you can form your own opinion. Good plot with interesting charactors. Go robots go.
The story was ok, a bit corny and the CGI was pretty bad at times.... it was an ok movie
Somewhat predictable, but very good special effects. All hangs on Will Smith, as others are lightwieght, so sometimes a bit tedious and boring, between the blasting, crashing bits. Loose and fluffy ending a disappointment.
Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. I enjoyed it, loud, fast action movie.
Fast action. Worth watching just to see Will Smith.
Not bad, great look into the future!
Fast paced with lots of action. Special FX are fabulous, and what can I say about Will Smith? Well he's Will Smith in another action/thriller/adventure and does it very well.
Loved it! Fantastic acting by the Robot! Will Smith was good too!
One of Will Smiths better performances, however the story seemed to lack something but the special effects and DTS sound were quite impressive.
Interesting watch. Great effects.
Much better than I thought it would be. I really liked it.
It's a very good sci-fi, the special effects were really great. Will Smith was really quite mature in this role which took me by surprise cause I was expecting him to play like he usually does in his films...real kind of macho and typical 'american hero' type of guy!
Very disappointing. It strayed too far from the original and, as usual for Hollywood, relied too heavily on Special Effects and not enough on Scripting and Acting. Watch it but don't expect too much and you should enjoy the ride.
A great thrill ride, plently of action, suspense, twists and special effects.
Despite will smith, it's not a bad film.
A thoroughly enjoyable film. Fast paced, well acted, but then most of Will Smith's work is good. This is one movie that is definitely joining my collection.
This could have been a great film but it lost the plot half way through. Commenced with lots of promise but the plot became totally predictable and idiotic.
Truly a gripping action-thriller. Despite this being a much-explored sci-fi theme (machines taking over the world, etc, etc, etc), there was nothing ho-hum about this movie at all. Definitely one for your list!
Very interesting spin on the classic Asimov novel. Will Smith very comfortable with this sort of genre, and the special effects are very neat.
Had potential, but flubbed it with weak ending and predictable plot twists. Very shallow multiplex mishmash.
The movie appealed to my viewing pleasure if you like watching a film of the future in the robot world you will realy enjoy this film.
I know this was set in 2035 but still thought it was a bit far fetched.Special FX are good however and overall not bad for a Saturday beer & pizza night movie
Wow, so bad. A few nice design elements, but paint by numbers story, shallow characters, ho hum reveal at the end... definitely a don't bother for me.
Will Smith saves the world again!! He's good at that isnt he.
Very good technically, the characters and the story were a bit lightweight.
Will Smith is as dependable as ever in these roles: the devil-may-care action figure with plenty of attitude and personality. It's a pity his co-star Moynahan is not quite up to scratch; though this is a minor concern. The film itself is thoroughly fascinating with glimpses of possible futuristic technological advances - as in The 6th Day - and the entire viewing experience is most definitely not to be missed, least of all by sci-fi action fans.
A science fiction murder mystery "I Robot" is exciting, challenging and fast paced. The characters are likeable, especially the robot. I found myself rewinding constantly to check clues I missed. The effects were great and added to the story. Assimov would have been pleased.
Ignoring the fact that Asimov is spinning in his grave, this is still a fun action movie to watch. The "Three Laws" (key to Asimov) were allowed to (sort of) be central to the story, which redeems it somewhat.
Plenty of action although old theme.
I really enjoyed this futuristic crime/detective/drama/
Not usually a fan of futuristic movies but I did enjoy this one. Guess the humour helped and the effects were pretty amazing.
Brilliant for fans of Sci-Fi. Great story, and fantastic special effects. Very enjoyable.
Not a fan of Will Smith but actually enjoyed this one. Well worth a look.
No Sci-Fi fan can or should turn away from this futuristic thriller. The special effects are amazing and so is the storyline. Wish I saw it in the cinema.
Great movie, Will smith at his wonderful best again. Story is good, kinda like a mixture of RoboCop & 5th Element. Futuristic but great action.
One of the best films I've seen on the big screen for years. Fast paced action and special effects to knock your socks off.
The usual and reliably funny performance from Will Smith brings a needed down-to-earth element to this futuristic wham-bam-thankyou-robot-mam killer.
The last 20 minutes or so of this film were so intense that I'm renting it out simply to gear myself up for it. For those of slow neural kinetics and information overload tendencies, watch out! Don't blink or you'll miss it.
Great special effects. However, the plot was just OK. Predictable and too much of Will.
Most enjoyable, Will Smith has that very watchable mixture of vulnerability and machismo.
While not the top Sci-Fi, as for action seekers, iRobot can be more impressive that Minority Report, however this film has less interting amount of elements both in visual & suspense. With a title sounds like a product from Apple, Smith plays a detictive who is not confortable with the AI surroundings of the future, & even attempt to accuse one with murder. But laws are written where all the robots has to be in complient to protect their owners. Question is, how COULD a machine disobey that law.
Very enjoyable - lots of action - a little predictable - you should rent me!
Loosely based on Isaac Asimov's short stories but still enjoyable.
One of The Best Action movie & tell a friend to watch it.
