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.

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

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

Steven Spielberg's A.I.: Artificial Intelligence is a return to sci-fi in true form.

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

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.

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

A.I. is a different kind of Spielberg film, and some audiences may not be ready for it.

A.I. stands as a work that allows us to see ourselves in the things that we have created. For good or for bad, it is eye opening experience.

A.I. is beguilingly enervated by a terror of its own darkness, a frenzied chase down too many separate rabbit holes in an attempt to escape its troubling implications.

Unquestionably worth seeing...

A.I. is not perfect, but see it; if you get tired of sitting, hit the concession stand during the third section.

The most densely layered science fiction film in years: a visionary bedtime story for adults.

Spielberg has never walked such a dangerous tightrope, never made a movie so fearless.
