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.

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

Temperamentally, Spielberg and Kubrick are such polar opposites that A.I. has the moment-to-moment effect of being completely at odds with itself.
October 12, 2001
It's an almost laughably creaky museum piece.
August 17, 2018
The movie consistently goes against the grain of the emotional expectations that it invokes in Spielberg's expertly realized shorthand...
April 11, 2018
An incredibly ambitious (if not always successful) sci-fi effort...
May 16, 2011
Flawed, to be sure, but beautifully crafted, unimaginably complex, visually dazzling, rich with metaphor and deeply affecting.

A.I.'s Blu-ray debut should remind audiences why this fascinating fairy tale remains Steven Spielberg's most audacious, incomplete, and menacing film.

...a long, expansive, always illuminating but never didactic look at life and love and what they mean to Mankind. (Blu-ray Edition)
September 25, 2010
An unsettling sci-fi fairytale mlange 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.
September 2, 2010
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.
September 1, 2009
Steven Spielberg tries to rescue the world's most elusive filmmaker from an unhappy ending.
June 17, 2008
Shows a more complicated understanding of childhood than you would expect...
July 23, 2007
This may be the first solipsistic epic since 2001, but it has none of that film's wonder or mystery.
July 14, 2007
It's odd to see the nearly infallible Steven Spielberg so visibly unsure of himself.
September 1, 2006
In retrospect, it seems inevitable that a Steven Spielberg interpretation of a Stanley Kubrick story would be an experiment in cinematic polarization.
