Having just seen this movie for the first time, I have to say that it's certainly a product of its age. In a time when filmmakers were trying new concepts with the horsepower of computer-aided effects, A.I. comes off as more an exercise in being fanciful for fancy's sake than anything meaningful. What meaning there is is so on the nose and obvious that the movie may as well have been written by David Cage of "Heavy Rain" fame. I was waiting for the characters to turn to the screen during some parts and scream, "It's symbolic, stupid!" And the ending, while an interesting twist, is almost too strange to be taken in any way seriously. All in all, it's a fairly fun romp, but not something I will watch again.
