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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

It's spectacular entertainment, though under the direction of Alex Proyas it also has a darkly apocalyptic visual scheme.

I Robot's ultramodern Chicago looks fantastic with its soaring glass skyscrapers and futuristic transit system with self-piloting cars that move sideways.

[It] would be more involving as a computer-game, but there are several sfx set-pieces that give great pneumatic spectacle, and the whole impersonal, cautionary concoction offers the salient sight of the machine pulping itself.

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.

I, Robot is the perfect film for both Smith and director Alex Proyas to display their respective talents.

Fun, interesting, and all round entertaining.

I, Robot is satisfactory as a story, appealing as a star turn but arresting only as production design -- in particular, for its vision of a specific American city.

...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.

Nobody is going to mistake this future noir for Spielberg's Minority Report, but for a light-headed adrenaline rush, it works pretty well.

The extras begin with an intelligent, interesting and thorough audio commentary by director Alex Proyas and writer Akiva Goldsman.
