Pardon me if I've seen this before.

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.

[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.

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.

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.

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.

[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.

Whether there's anything substantial under the sheen and CGI of Alex Proyas' glistening future vision is debatable, but this enjoyable, engrossing picture is at least intelligently artificial.

For all its flaws, I, Robot is arresting to look at.
July 20, 2004
Strives to be so many things that it ultimately falls away to nothing, a heap of expensive metal parts.
July 20, 2004
By adeptly combining action and ideas, it proves that Hollywood can still produce astonishing entertainment.
July 20, 2004
Rather than a thoughtful adaptation of a venerated piece of sci-fi lit, we get a dumbed-down litany of deliberate clichés and digital white noise.
July 19, 2004
... a slick, consistently entertaining thrill ride ...
July 16, 2004
For the most part, this is thrilling fun.
July 16, 2004
Succeed on its own terms as an entertaining mid-season popcorn movie.
July 16, 2004
A failure of imagination.
