Flawed, to be sure, but beautifully crafted, unimaginably complex, visually dazzling, rich with metaphor and deeply affecting.

A confined domestic drama, a considerable morality tale, a fleeting futuristic noir, a persecution parable, an on-the-nose fairy tale adventure... and then it keeps going.

An unsettling sci-fi fairytale mélange of "Pinocchio" and "The Wizard of Oz" that's elegantly written, visually opulent and thematically challenging and discontented. One of Steven Spielberg's finest, and most fiercely misread, films.

Provocative movie suitable for teens.

A "good" A.I. would be of infinitely less value than the A.I. that we have...a staggering creation.

Steven Spielberg tries to rescue the world's most elusive filmmaker from an unhappy ending.

Shows a more complicated understanding of childhood than you would expect...

Time Out
August 16, 2007
At heart it's a terribly anguished expression of rejection, loneliness and love. If only it knew when to stop.
Rob Gonsalves
July 23, 2007
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.

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

Steven Spielberg's A.I.: Artificial Intelligence is a return to sci-fi in true form.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
Emanuel Levy
August 9, 2005
One of Spielberg's most ambitious and problematic films, a result of trying to blend two divergent sensibilities, his and Kubrick's, but as a sci-fi, it has both thematic and visual merits.

Looking Closer
December 6, 2004
The demands of the story would have been better served by Kubrick.

[The] middle section [of A.I.] contains perhaps Spielberg's finest work, ever.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
Jordan Hiller

Although the film itself and its immaculate pacing keeps us believing his love is real - it is impossible to be intellectually honest and come to that conclusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5

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

A.I. is a different kind of Spielberg film, and some audiences may not be ready for it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

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
