A cold, boring retread of Pinocchio with no characters to grab onto.

This is Spielberg's loving tribute to Stanley Kubrick and a bloated tribute to himself.

Fascinating, if uneven and ultimately rather silly.

This may be the first solipsistic epic since 2001, but it has none of that film's wonder or mystery.

It's odd to see the nearly infallible Steven Spielberg so visibly unsure of himself.

Mr. Spielberg, your love is real. Your movie, sadly, is not.

At heart it's a terribly anguished expression of rejection, loneliness and love. If only it knew when to stop.

Uma grande frustração para os fãs de Steven Spielberg e também para os de Stanley Kubrick.

A movie in which the intelligence is supposed to be artificial, but it's the emotions that feel that way.

San Francisco Chronicle
June 29, 2001
The structureless, meandering, slow-motion endlessness of Kubrick combined with the fuzzy, cuddly mindlessness of Spielberg.

Its heart is in the right place. But the intelligence behind the rest of the movie is, well, a little too artificial.

At best it's brilliant, but lukewarm -- lacking Spielberg's emotional heat and Kubrick's icy intellect.

It turns out that Kubrick was right. The problems this story presented couldn't be solved after all.

An undecided sortie down the middle of the road, urged from within toward both the light and the dark but lacking the spirit to give itself over to either.

A frustrating but ultimately boring experience that I kept wishing was more exciting and engaging.
Chuck Rudolph
Matinee Magazine
June 24, 2001
The film is neither too cold nor too sentimental for its own good, and its ambitions remain fitfully engaging while its promise goes mostly unachieved.

Striking in looks but peculiarly disturbing in tone, the futuristic tale that began as a Kubrick project and finished under writer-director Spielberg is more nightmare than feel-good fantasy.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Brian Mckay
March 20, 2003
From Kubrickese to Spielbergian, something got lost in the translation. What could have been a dark but brilliant film drags on until it finds some kind of happy ending

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.

A.1: Artificial Intelligence is another Spielberg exercise in B.S.: Big Statement.

A.I. is a great yarn, a fantasy-filled sci-fi adventure with a heart.
