Bicentennial Man

Critics Consensus

Bicentennial Man is ruined by a bad script and ends up being dull and mawkish.

    A very different film, Started off fun and exciting but turned too serious and sad, Kind of ruind it for me but still not a bad movie.

    Bicentennial Man is an overlooked family film that isn't perfect, but nonetheless doesn't deserve all the negativity it has received. Chris Columbus directs this with flair and he makes something really good here, and quite entertaining. Due to some scenes, this may upset younger viewers, but this is sure to appeal to anyone looking for something unique to watch. I can see why some people may dislike this one, but I on the other hand found it very entertaining and very well done. The special effects are truly wonderful and they add so much to the film. I thought that Robin Williams was truly great in the lead role. This is a fine drama that manages to overcome its shortcomings due to its heart. The cast are wonderful and they elevate the material significantly. Bicentennial Man is not perfect, but it definitely entertaining and is worth watching. Chris Columbus has directed something truly incredible that is very much underrated and like I said does not deserve the flack it has received. Of course Columbus has made better films in his career, but this is an overlooked gem that definitely is worth your time. Robin Williams is a good actor and he deserves credit in giving the film its charm as well as some humor here and there to lighten the tone of the drama. There are things that could have been done better, but overall the film really soars above the negative aspects that all the negative reviews have pointed out. Give this film a shot if you're in the right state of mind, you may be surprised at how good it really is.
