  1. This sucks really badly.

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!

    it has will Smith in it. Enough said.

    But, saying that I haven’t explained yet.

    He has ears that are on the same scale to Tom Cruise’s nose, and my pal AJ”Jizzy B” ‘s enormous girth. I said to AJ “Dude! Sweet! Dude! I wonder if we can get satellite T.V. for free if we splice a wire into those things?” He reckoned we could, so we did, but the wire was really short, so that’s why he looks so angry on the cover of the DVD, cos he’s dragging the wall of my house round with him, but he can’t figure out what’s going on ; he’s like: “Dude, why’s that wall following me around? That must have been one bad trip.”

    So the film sucks as it cost me a wall of a house, which promptly fell down, and also you can’t see half the cast cos of Smith’s ears, but it got one star as I got free satellite T.V.!!! WHOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. While I try to make it a point to write an introduction, there seem to be people who make it more of a point to edit them out. Why? I don’t know. All I said here was that my review would be more helpful than the others (except for that guy with the robot cause he’s too awesome).

    Okay, first off, this isn’t about robots at all. It’s about ANDROIDS. Therefore it is not a ripoff of the Matrix but a ripoff of Star Wars. I should know this because I am often mistaken for George Lucas. Also, I have no reason at all to believe this is anything other than The Great Muppet Caper meets The Land Before Time III – The Time of Great Giving.

    Furthermore, people only build robots for one thing: The Making and Delivering of Deli Sandwiches. Trust me on this one, I saw an episode of Talespin about the whole thing. You won’t be able to find that episode because the Government destroyed it soon after it aired, but I remember it vividly like a lynx remembers a chilly desert snow.
    What does this have to do with the movie, you ask? That’s up to you to look inside yourself and figure it out. Make sure no one’s around when you do this, they’ll think you’re weird and possibly call the police.

    So, in conclusion, robots will destroy the world if we don’t learn to modify Teddy Roxbins to fight them back. But here’s a twist… I AM A ROBOT. YOU SHALL ALL BRING ME RICHES BEYOND WONDER AND KEEP ME WELL OILED AND STORED AROUND ROOM TEMPERATURE. Bet you didn’t see that coming, hope I didn’t give away the movie…. humans shall perish…

    P.S. AI is much better (not the movie but the steak sauce; zing!)

  3. This might have been a great movie, but it’s impossible to get past Smith’s gawkiness and “attitude”, lending a clownish cast to his character. The whole tone of the movie is colored by his misguided acting. All seriousness is lost in his silly quips and awkward costuming. “Somehow ‘I told you so’ doesn’t quite say it.” Horrible scripting in many instances. “This thing doesn’t run on gas, does it? Gas explodes, you know!” Yuck. Thanks for ruining it, Big Bird.

    And the CGI is not too impressive either. The sight of swarms of robots jumping around like grasshoppers doesn’t exactly inspire awe; looks more like a bad scene from a videogame. Although I liked the concept of cables for muscles.

    But how about the story? As I mentioned, it’s totally dominated by Smith’s “Bad Boys” persona and his ridiculous costumes which accentuate his ears (and earrings). His strutting and brooding and constant throwing around of his weight crowd out any serious consideration of the plot. It’s jarring. It’s a complete mismatch for this type of movie. They might as well have cast Jon Lovitz in the part.

    But perhaps this was necessary, as the plot has huge gaps in logic. Why do robots in the dark seek out light? asks one of the characters. Well, all musings on AI aside, it must be a function of programming. Everything about them is, even when they behave unpredictably. I guarantee you there is a subroutine in their brains that, when certain conditions are met, fires off a command to move towards the light. Nothing profound about that. The only mystery arises from our ignorance of those necessary conditions.

    The movie is further ruined by some silly “big air” gunfighting from Smith, again completely out of place in this movie.

    And why does he hate robots so much? You’ll laugh until you cry when you find out. And then you’ll want to slap him silly.

    Oh. And another thing. It’s implausible that we would manufacture robots of such strength and, well, hardness without some easy way to disable them, just in case. It’s just too scary for us otherwise – that’s human nature. No one wants to be in a building at night with an automaton that can pull your head off if its software or hardware fails – talk about Blue Screen of Death.

    Finally, there is no conflict regarding the three laws in the movie, so don’t expect any philosophical musings in that regard. The issue is cheaply circumvented.

  4. Those scenes with Will Smith getting outta bed and taking a shower really had me thinking….. Jada is one fortunate sista!! For the few times that I actually watch the movie past the first 7 minutes, I think it is pretty cool.

    Don’t you just love Sonny too???!!!

  5. Very good movie, but the language was awful. Why do they have to ruin good movies with foul language and taking God’s name in vain. We’ve always liked Will Smith. To bad they ruined the movie.
