At least it's a beautiful crappy movie, and nearly worth seeing for the special effects and set design alone.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
A middling entertainment.
| Original Score: 3/5
The plot is simple-minded and disappointing, and the chase and action scenes are pretty much routine for movies in the sci-fi CGI genre.
| Original Score: 2/4
The special effects are uninspiringly video-gamey and that John Woo- and Matrix-imbued, slo-mo mid-air stuntwork is unfulfillingly cliché...
Big-budget, big-effects tale of men and machines has a tiny imagination and a robo-crafted soul.
| Original Score: 1/5
I, Robot is a movie destined for fast-forward buttons the world over.
| Original Score: 2/5
The film works best as a kind of mindless, action-packed B-movie. But on the A-level at which recent science fiction/fantasy films operate, this movie falls woefully short.
Androids may dream of electric sheep, but I, Robot's multi-million dollar machines are remnants of summer films gone by.
It's fun, sure, but uninspired. We've seen it all before... Will Smith does his old Will Smith thing again, with only the minimum level of actual entertainment to dress it up.
| Original Score: C+
There's no swifter way to ruin 'not bad' than a reminder of something truly great... and for I, Robot, that reminder is never further away than the title.
A failure of imagination.
Although Asimov's core conceit remains intact, the movie essentially plays out like an off-the-rack 1990s action flick.
| Original Score: D
Mixing animation and live action nearly seamlessly, I, ROBOT turns Isaac Asimov's robot world into the backdrop for a prosaic summer action film.
| Original Score: 4/10
The movie is at least a bit less annoying than director Alex Proyas' previous two genre attempts.
Pretty to look at but there's not much under the hood in this Isaac Asimov-based futuristic murder mystery...
Performances, plot and pacing are as mechanical as the hard-wired cast.
A hunk of expensive, lifeless junk.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
I, Robot is a disappointment not because of what it is, but because of what it could have been.
