The plot seemed forced to me, though average summer fare. What bothered me the most however, was the ending.

Pardon me if I've seen this before.

I have seen the future and it s an episode of Frasier gone very wrong. The worst episode, actually. Not that I, Robot is a bad film; quite the contrary, it s a shamelessly entertaining video game of a narrative, directed with style and energy.

...it does operate with a crisp, impressive, nuts-and-bolts efficiency as its robots do their best song-and-dance to provide us with a smooth summer diversion.

Leaving aside the sub-Matrix hokum about Spooner's sweet-potato-loving grandmom, the movie humiliates itself - and embarrasses us - by the amount of time it spends plugging a glamorous car...

In the end, I, Robot is just an assembly-line product of a not very advanced model.

He excels in creating alternative worlds and the one here sustains the film, with a pristine beauty that's attractive and slightly sinister.

This sci-fi action adventure, loosely based on the writing of Isaac Asimov, is impressive for Patrick Tatopoulos's production design but depressive for the juiceless story.

This may not delve as deeply as AI: Artificial Intelligence or Blade Runner, but director Alex Proyas keeps the action racing along with enough invention and thrills to make this well worth the ride.

The problem with Robot is that it keeps reminding you of better, edgier flicks, notably Blade Runner, The Terminator and Minority Report, not to mention director Alex Proyas's own Dark City.

It's not as dazzling or thrilling a blend between realism and fantasy as Minority Report or even Hollow Man, but it certainly is an easy film to watch and to at times get lost in.

[I, Robot] somehow manages to overlook the subversive potential, and it's low on wit, coming up with a good-looking but ultimately inert movie with a feeble non-ending that gave me a pain in all the diodes down my left side.

Given how hard it is to find new ideas in mainstream screen sci-fi these days, the film does a creditable job of repackaging standard speculative circuitry under a sleek new blockbuster carapace.

I, Robot is far less concerned with bellowing an Orwellian socio-political warning than with giving Will Smith enough robots to bash apart and send flying across elaborate sets.
December 15, 2018
It's much more of an action flick than either Metropolis or Blade Runner, but there's a provocative and visionary side to this free adaptation of Isaac Asimov's SF classic that puts it in the same thoughtful canon.
December 15, 2018
While the shiny props and impressive effects lend high-tech glamour, it is the fine balance of action, character, and an old-school detective story that enable Alex Proyas' impressive sci-fi movie to cross the boundaries of genre.
December 15, 2018
The result is a cluttered, awkward blockbuster that's just smart enough to get itself into trouble.
December 15, 2018
It's spectacular entertainment, though under the direction of Alex Proyas it also has a darkly apocalyptic visual scheme.

The plot unravels rather than cranking up. The McGuffin with Spooner can be seen coming from a long way off, while the film jinks rather than twists towards its inevitable climax.
August 30, 2017
A dreary action-mystery that spends far too much time mucking around a villainous plot that isn't nearly as difficult to unravel as the protagonist makes it.
