A beautiful story about the real meaning of being human. One of my favourite movie soundtracks ever!
Isaac Asimov is one of my favorite writers. I've read probably 20-30 of his books and short stories. Bicentennial Man is probably one of my least favorite stories of his, its too precious and beats you over the head over and over and over again.
You can learn a lot about your humanity by watching the efforts to recreate or imitate it, whether it be by a child or a robot. That's fine and cool. That's an ongoing theme for Asimov. I love his Liar story which is a smaller bite, but plays perfectly. I don't like this because at the end of the movie, you are taking something that felt like it should have been more of a poetic statement, and sucking all the magic out of it. You can't glorify the spirit of man and then try to act that getting citizenship is the culmination of it. That's just stupid.
Embeth Davidtz and Robin Williams do an awesome job. I never understood why so many people did not like the movie. It's fantasy, people. It takes letting go, suspension of belief, and focusing on the wonders of life itself. Fantastic movie. Touching and funny.
Love it. Yes, it's overly sentimental and plays on our heartstrings but it's a lovely and funny film about a robot seeking to be human. Romance at its finest.
One of my all time favorites. Ahead of itd time with its scifi tech concepts in medicine, robotics and AI. It will leave you happy and sad at the same time.
One Of My Favorite Robin William Movies deserves a better rating than What It Got
I am surprised that this movie did not get a higher rating. Robin Williams was, as usual, terrific! Embeth Davidtz, was excellent in all her characters and the music...is beautiful and intense. The story transverses the machine vs. human and gives us all food for thought about accepting what we do not understand or, even, fear.... I can watch it over and over.
Criminally underrated - it's easily my favourite Robin Williams film, which is some feat!
A far better movie than the reviews. While I agree with the background noise...it is still background noise.
A heartfelt, funny, and thoughtful exploration of what it means to be human, and as Wiki put it, of slavery, prejudice, maturity, conformity, sex, love, and mortality. The young and dimwitted probably give the movie a low rating because it lacks car chases, gunfights and explosions.
