Spielberg's insistence on labouring the Pinocchio resonance becomes extremely jarring, and nostalgia for the wide-eyed charm of his 1982 masterpiece 'E.T.' strengthens as the film staggers to its over-wrought climax.

An apt tribute to Kubrick, blending a fascinating subject with unsettling imagery.

A.I. stands as a work that allows us to see ourselves in the things that we have created. For good or for bad, it is eye opening experience.

A.I. is beguilingly enervated by a terror of its own darkness, a frenzied chase down too many separate rabbit holes in an attempt to escape its troubling implications.

This could have been a great Spielberg movie. This could have been a great Kubrick movie. It is neither.

A project nursed for years by Kubrick and bequeathed to his friend, A.I. is not only Spielberg's least-pleasant film, it's a willful self-deconstruction that will make it impossible to look at the director's films the same way again.

Unquestionably worth seeing...

A.I. is not perfect, but see it; if you get tired of sitting, hit the concession stand during the third section.

Some of A.I. works, some of it fails miserably. Half brilliant, half crap.

The most densely layered science fiction film in years: a visionary bedtime story for adults.

One of Spielberg's most thought-provoking efforts.

Spielberg has never walked such a dangerous tightrope, never made a movie so fearless.

Spielberg should thank the heavens that Haley Joel Osment exists. The movie's success entirely depends on his performance, and his performance is incredible.

A very long, bizarre, and paranoid movie...

There's no question that somehow, some way, director Steven Spielberg figured out a way to channel the talents and advice of his mentor Stanley Kubrick as he compiled the incredible, intriguing sci fi stor

No film scholar would pick the populist Spielberg as the esoteric Kubrick's successor. It's as unlikely as Orson Welles collaborating with Walt Disney.

Spielberg's sci-fi fable is haunting, disturbing, flawed -- and unforgettable.

For its first three-quarters, "A.I." is science-fiction at its most provocative and chilling. ... But then, "A.I." takes a disastrous turn.
