Audience Reviews for Robopocalypse
This should be a good Spielberg outing, for sure...I think this film will be a sort of cross between Close Encounters, A.I., and Jurassic Park... Close Encounters, because it is a story of a global phenomenon happening to different people, and having those people's path's eventually intertwine (like Richard Dryfuss and Francois Truffut's characters, for example)...However, this film's "aliens" are not peaceful, these robots and machines are dangerous, and deadly...this is where the comparison to Jurassic Park comes in- The book contains many suspenseful action scenes that would make excellent "stand alone" action set pieces that focus on details, which is the way Spielberg's classic action sequences have always gone (specifically Jurassic Park)...Also, there is the main theme of Artificial Intelligence, which of course was the central theme of A.I....Having read the book, I can see Spielberg translating many of the scenes VERY well into his style of filmmaking-- I would say that the book, while not necessarily a "Sci fi classic", is for sure an action story with suspenseful scenes, jumping around to different countries to show the events, and multi-cultural heros as central to the storyline- all things that are right up Spielberg's alley....If this is pulled off correctly, this should be Spielberg's best sci fi/action outing since "Minority Report"...looking forward to this one
