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 29, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

. . .the movie starts to really lose its way, and tries to distract us, the audience, with lots 'o big stupid action moments and slow-mo shots of Will Smith flying through the air, yelling "YARGHHHHH!!" spraying bullets as he goes.

Will Smith almost redeems generic man vs. machine actioner.

Pretty to look at but there's not much under the hood in this Isaac Asimov-based futuristic murder mystery...

A lot of fun with excellent direction...
July 8, 2008
It feels like an anonymous Hollywood studio film that overwhelmed the director with the demands to fashion a blockbuster vehicle for its star.
September 24, 2007
The movie is at least a bit less annoying than director Alex Proyas' previous two genre attempts.

September 25, 2006
Smith's occasional sullenness suggests he is itching for another Ali-like chance to prove his acting chops even as he slums his way through another high-tech shoot-'em-up.

Sonny, voiced by Alan Tudyk, is the equal of the other two leads both in his screen presence and the empathy he draws from the audience.
July 25, 2005
If you are looking for proof that Hollywood has completely run out of ideas, check out I, Robot.

As I, Robot details how Smith must fight for his survival against an army of white men whom he alone knows are evil, the film might have been called 'I, Hollywood'.

February 26, 2005
A thriller typically is only as good as its villain, and too many of them are bloodless here. Except for the hot-blooded performance of Smith... the movie is cool, right down to its color scheme.

For those who like their sci-fi to have the depth and breadth of comic books.

January 26, 2005
...passable as a vibrating escapist flick in spite of Proya's sporadically flat direction and the uneven interpretation of Asimov's wry commentary

An enjoyable action flick.

December 31, 2004
A dull, derivative [film] with no new ideas and a main character who, while clearly simple-minded, is somehow the smartest guy in the story.

Nobody is going to mistake this future noir for Spielberg's Minority Report, but for a light-headed adrenaline rush, it works pretty well.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
November 16, 2004
The extras begin with an intelligent, interesting and thorough audio commentary by director Alex Proyas and writer Akiva Goldsman.

November 5, 2004
A film so detached from Asimov's vision, it emerges as a destabilized attempt at reworking an already-polished concept.
