Will Smith almost redeems generic man vs. machine actioner.

Pretty to look at but there's not much under the hood in this Isaac Asimov-based futuristic murder mystery...

It feels like an anonymous Hollywood studio film that overwhelmed the director with the demands to fashion a blockbuster vehicle for its star.

The movie is at least a bit less annoying than director Alex Proyas' previous two genre attempts.

Smith's occasional sullenness suggests he is itching for another Ali-like chance to prove his acting chops even as he slums his way through another high-tech shoot-'em-up.
| Original Score: 2/4

If you are looking for proof that Hollywood has completely run out of ideas, check out I, Robot.

As I, Robot details how Smith must fight for his survival against an army of white men whom he alone knows are evil, the film might have been called 'I, Hollywood'.

For those who like their sci-fi to have the depth and breadth of comic books.

...passable as a vibrating escapist flick in spite of Proya's sporadically flat direction and the uneven interpretation of Asimov's wry commentary

Looking Closer
December 31, 2004
A dull, derivative [film] with no new ideas and a main character who, while clearly simple-minded, is somehow the smartest guy in the story.
| Original Score: C+

Nobody is going to mistake this future noir for Spielberg's Minority Report, but for a light-headed adrenaline rush, it works pretty well.

The extras begin with an intelligent, interesting and thorough audio commentary by director Alex Proyas and writer Akiva Goldsman.

A film so detached from Asimov's vision, it emerges as a destabilized attempt at reworking an already-polished concept.

Based on Isaac Asimov's short story collection and directed by Alex Proyas, who did much better with 'Dark City' and 'The Crow.'
| Original Score: C+

This is jaw-droppingly juvenile and insulting to my intelligence. Perhaps its subject matter is obsolete. Asimov deserved better.

An uninspired, recycled action thriller.

Whether there's anything substantial under the sheen and CGI of Alex Proyas' glistening future vision is debatable, but this enjoyable, engrossing picture is at least intelligently artificial.

It may or may not come as a surprise, but Will Smith is out-acted by the robots.
