Director Alex Proyas (Dark City, The Crow) helmed this sci-fi thriller inspired by the stories in Isaac Asimov's nine-story anthology of the same name. In the future presented in the film, humans have become exceedingly dependent on robots in their everyday lives. Robots have become more and more advanced, but each one is preprogrammed to always obey humans and to, under no circumstances, ever harm a human. So, when a scientist turns up dead and a humanoid robot is the main suspect, the world is left to wonder if they are as safe around their electronic servants as previously thought. Will Smith stars as Del Spooner, the robot-hating Chicago cop assigned to the murder investigation. Bridget Moynahan, Bruce Greenwood, James Cromwell, and Chi McBride also star.

I, Robot, adapted and directed by Alex Proyas is a science fiction film based on Isaac Asimov's book I, Robot. The film is set in a seemingly not so distant future where robots assist and live to serve humans. The film follows main character, Detective Del Spooner played by Will Smith. Del Spooner is not very trusting or accepting of these robots in his society. He's a "robotophobic," someone afraid of robots. The film revolves around the idea of robots and and they interact in this futuristic society. A discussion that is becoming increasingly more apparent in our day and age. In the film, Del Spooner investigates the alleged suicide of a robot founder. He eventually ends up believing that a robot actually murdered him. This film deals with a certain reality that we discuss and write about often. The prospect that one day we might one day be overrun by technology and succumb to their artificial intelligence, which after all, might not be as artificial as we perceived it to be. Through it's use of visual effects the viewer can truly imagine a changing world where robots are becoming more and more powerful than humans. At the time the film was made it was nominated for Best Visual Effects during the 2005 Oscars. The film sets up three laws that if mean total chaos for the futuristic world. One of which is to not injure or murder human beings. One robot in the film, Sonny, is accused of doing exactly that. So, the issue arises: are the robots in the film truly there to help, or are they part of some bigger scheme. As for audience members watching the film, are we truly safe of not having the same thing happen to us? Technology is changing at an exponential rate. Soon, Asimov's science fiction will become a reality. As time goes on I, Robot becomes increasingly more and more realistic and accurate.
“IRobot” is a movie made by Alex Proyas. Even if you don’t like science fiction you will enjoy the adventures of Del Spooner. The movie is in the future where robots work for human thinks they have control over the machines, except one cop, who doesn’t trust anyone, especially robots. The movie is about a guy who is a police man, and he really hates robots. He lives in a future looking place with flying cars, and big buildings. He thinks that robots are bad but there just programed to work. When all the robots in the city were replaced with new ones, apparently the new robots turned to be bad, and they start attacking people. The only way to stop them is to destroy the mother board which is controlling the new robots. He gets through all the robots and was to inject a virus into the mother board is all the way down one handed, and while going down his skin rips. His hand turns out to be a robot. Well he gets to the main floor and injects the virus in. all the robots turned good again, but the new ones got put away and the old ones were back. In conclusion “IRobot” was one of the best movies I have seen. It really makes you think about the future, the control we have over computers, or how easy it is to fool humans. We as humans should always be alert and not become lazy.
Saw I-Robot 2x in the theatre and highly recommend it. It is alittle long in spots but that is easily forgiven with all the special effects and story line. The ending was a shock and left you really wondering "what happens now???" Will Smith was his usual funny self, and Sonny will steal your heart. The whole premise makes you wonder and worry about the future, this movie may not be too far fetched. And maybe it was just me, but I actually felt badly for all the older model robots. The special effects rocked...I can't wait to buy this DVD!!
I came to this flick expecting the standard TERMINATOR knock-off and was very pleasantly surprised. Sure, it has plenty of action. But it leaves the viewer with something to think -- and talk -- about. At its core, the film is about ideas.
this is my fav movie of all time. i saw it 3 times in the theaters, so i cant wait 2 get the dvd. the plot is great, and will keep you guessing till the end, and the special effects are phenomenal.
Will Smith plays his role as a police detective with a grudge against the cold metal creations of man called robots. A good story that pulls on the fear of losing control of the world and our freedoms to artificial intelligence. great acting, great story, touching and emotional film. one of will smiths best.
You take the name of a great book written by a great author (but no real context of it) for the nerds, Will Smith for the (women?), swirl around some CG action and what do you get? Something bad, utter disappointingly (although not surprisingly) bad. The acting was stiff, the dialogue was laughable at best (except for Smith's stupid pun jokes) and the computer graphics look like they were done in the mid '90s. For anyone wanting something worth while, read the book. There is nothing worth seeing here.
Set in 2035-it is very realistics. The special effects are amazing (even Will Smith said that). It can be hard to follow at times, but if you watch it a 2nd time you should understand it better. Like 'The Day After Tomorrow' it could come true!
i saw this movie with my brother and cousins. and i must say... this movie is Amazing! i absolutely loved it. i recommend this movie to anyone. if you love sci-fic, this movie is definentally for you!
I, Robot is in every sense of the word a GREAT movie! It has that mixture of comedy, mystery and of course action. You keep wondering what will happen next (in the movie and real life) and you can even feel bad for the bad guys. I loved it. Reccomended to all!
Fantastic movie! Very creative and touching morals. However, it would be more thrilling and interesting if there is a continuation to the movie. Please pardon, but here is a short version that could help for the "next i,robot": Spooner, Sonny, the beautiful doctor, and all the residents are happy and releived from being imprisoned by destructive, intelligent robots. But are they? As the people of the technological world return to their daily livihood, prof. Lanning's program (sorry I can't recall the program's name-but it's a female's) secretly conducts herself a new amry of robots in a subsidiary base of the desserted robot-manufacturing niche. From there, her troops prepare for another strike of "human-protection" as they roam around the city in disguise. Little by little, "normal" robots disappear and people begin to feel unsecure and refrained to move freely around their homes. It will not be long before Will and Sonny realize what is happening and to take on a mission to locate the she-program to end all madness, whom barely survived Spooner's virus detonation through immediate transfer to the base unknown (and highly-guarded by robots) by man-kind.
But this is a good movie, regardless. The FX were very cool.
