“This Is One KICK-ASS Movie!”
“Not Great And Not Bad”
“It Gets Off To A Slow Start And A Lot Of The Dialogue Doesn't Work, But This Is The Perfect "summer Movie" In A Summer Where Those Are Lacking.”
A routine Will Smith cop-on- the-hunt thriller at heart, I, Robot lacks imaginative excitement.
Owen Gleiberman - Entertainment Weekly
'Suggested by' Isaac Asimov's book of short stories, Alex Proyas's hectic thriller engages some interesting ideas on its way to an overblown and incoherent ending.
A.O. Scott - New York Times
Performances, plot and pacing are as mechanical as the hard-wired cast.
Claudia Puig - USA Today
Succeed on its own terms as an entertaining mid-season popcorn movie.
Ann Hornaday - Washington Post
For the most part, this is thrilling fun.
Desson Thomson - Washington Post
The sort of multiplex-buster that depends more on editing and production design than on story line.
Ty Burr - Boston Globe
Rather than a thoughtful adaptation of a venerated piece of sci-fi lit, we get a dumbed-down litany of deliberate cliches and digital white noise.
Michael Atkinson - Village Voice
I, Robot is fun, even when it relies a bit too much on standard police-procedure cliches.
Jami Bernard - New York Daily News
Plays like a compendium of summer blockbusters.
Eric Harrison - Houston Chronicle
I, Robot is yet another summer entree in which good intentions are stymied by excessive bric-a-brac.
Philip Wuntch - Dallas Morning News
An engaging CGI-fueled ride.
Lisa Kennedy - Denver Post
The plot is simple-minded and disappointing, and the chase and action scenes are pretty much routine for movies in the sci-fi CGI genre.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
A high-tech thriller that really works -- both because of its eye-popping visual feats and the ideas and humanity behind them.
Michael Wilmington - Chicago Tribune
I, Robot is less compelling as a drama of the human enslavement of androids than it is an intriguing vision of a treeless, cashless future.
Carrie Rickey - Philadelphia Inquirer
While it's not in a league with Blade Runner, The Terminator or even Robocop, I, Robot is an efficiently designed, well-oiled machine.
Colin Covert - Minneapolis Star Tribune
Will Smith fans will likely be disappointed, and lovers of fine cinema best look elsewhere. But if you're looking for robots going crazy, this one's worth your money.
Tom Long - Detroit News
Those who are unfamiliar with Asimov's work may enjoy I, Robot as a summer popcorn movie. It's just unfortunate that it's not more.
Bill Muller - Arizona Republic
For all its flaws, I, Robot is arresting to look at.
Rex Reed - New York Observer
A failure of imagination.
Todd McCarthy - Variety
Surprisingly smart, cool-looking, nicely paced and well-acted.
Lou Lumenick - New York Post
A middling entertainment.
Roger Moore - Orlando Sentinel
A CGI-laced action movie cum merchandising opportunity, warped into insensate silliness by the pop-iconic demands of Smith's megabucks macho action-hero persona and peppered with stock cop-on-the- edge action-movie situations.
Geoff Pevere - Toronto Star
A movie of its kind and of its time -- functional, professional, slickly manufactured and slouching toward consciousness -- I, Robot is a perfect slave to mechanical convention.
Rick Groen - Globe and Mail
Strives to be so many things that it ultimately falls away to nothing, a heap of expensive metal parts.
Stephanie Zacharek - Salon.com
David Edelstein - Slate
By adeptly combining action and ideas, it proves that Hollywood can still produce astonishing entertainment.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
The film works best as a kind of mindless, action-packed B-movie. But on the A-level at which recent science fiction/fantasy films operate, this movie falls woefully short.
Kirk Honeycutt - Hollywood Reporter
Although Asimov's core conceit remains intact, the movie essentially plays out like an off-the-rack 1990s action flick.
Manohla Dargis - Los Angeles Times
Will Smith almost redeems generic man vs. machine actioner.
Renee Schonfeld - Common Sense Media
Pretty to look at but there's not much under the hood in this Isaac Asimov-based futuristic murder mystery...
Cole Smithey - ColeSmithey.com
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
Guylaine Cadorette - Hollywood.com
Jim Lane - Sacramento News & Review
It feels like an anonymous Hollywood studio film that overwhelmed the director with the demands to fashion a blockbuster vehicle for its star.
Steve Biodrowski - ESplatter
The movie is at least a bit less annoying than director Alex Proyas' previous two genre attempts.
Rob Gonsalves - eFilmCritic.com
Joe Lozito - Big Picture Big Sound
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.
Peter T. Chattaway - Christianity Today
Dean Essner - Time Out
Dean Essner - Film Threat
If you are looking for proof that Hollywood has completely run out of ideas, check out I, Robot.
Uri Lessing - www.kcactive.com
Dean Essner - Bullz-Eye.com
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'.
Brian Juergens - Freeze Dried Movies
Garth Franklin - Dark Horizons
Ethan Alter - NYC Film Critic
Stuart Klawans - Nation
Stuart Klawans - The Nation
For those who like their sci-fi to have the depth and breadth of comic books.
Dan Jardine - Cinemania
...passable as a vibrating escapist flick in spite of Proya's sporadically flat direction and the uneven interpretation of Asimov's wry commentary
Frank Ochieng - Movie Eye
An enjoyable action flick.
Forrest Hartman - Reno Gazette-Journal
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.
Jeffrey Overstreet - Looking Closer
Nobody is going to mistake this future noir for Spielberg's Minority Report, but for a light-headed adrenaline rush, it works pretty well.
John J. Puccio - DVDTown.com
John J. Puccio - Movie Metropolis
The extras begin with an intelligent, interesting and thorough audio commentary by director Alex Proyas and writer Akiva Goldsman.
Brian Webster - Apollo Guide
A film so detached from Asimov's vision, it emerges as a destabilized attempt at reworking an already-polished concept.
David Keyes - Cinemaphile.org
Based on Isaac Asimov's short story collection and directed by Alex Proyas, who did much better with 'Dark City' and 'The Crow.'
Steve Crum - Kansas City Kansan
Tony Medley - tonymedley.com
This is jaw-droppingly juvenile and insulting to my intelligence. Perhaps its subject matter is obsolete. Asimov deserved better.
Michael Drakulich - Star Newspapers (Chicago, IL)
An uninspired, recycled action thriller.
Mark Sells - Oregon Herald
Brian Orndorf - FilmJerk.com
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.
Nev Pierce - BBC
It may or may not come as a surprise, but Will Smith is out-acted by the robots.
Kevin Carr - 7M Pictures
Better than anyone had any right to expect.
Lewis Beale - Film Journal International
Ed Colley - Future Movies UK
...The key to what makes "I, Robot" work is a well thought out script...
Tony Toscano - Talking Pictures (U.S.)
Matthew Turner - ViewLondon
A multi-villain axis of evil and a pulpy vision that feels machine-hacked.
Jules Brenner - Cinema Signals
Anton Bitel - Movie Gazette
This summer picture has a brain as well as muscles.
Kim Newman - Empire Magazine
A B-movie blast about power and greed
James Christopher - Times [UK]
Proyas succumbs to the inane post-Matrix tendency to pump up action sequences with sudden moments of slow motion gymnastics that are almost laughable
James Kendrick - Q Network Film Desk
Os resquicios da obra original de Asimov sao o bastante para que possamos sair do cinema razoavelmente satisfeitos.
Pablo Villaca - Cinema em Cena
rises above plot holes and stilted dialogue just enough to be a fun Sunday afternoon Matinee
Brian Mckay - eFilmCritic.com
It's all mechanically done, but at least I Robot manages to be entertaining.
Gerry Shamray - Sun Newspapers of Cleveland
A-by-the-numbers action film retrofitted as a sci-fi work of art.
Rick Kisonak - Film Threat
...better than I ever expected it to be on most levels.
Dan Marcucci and Nancy Serougi - Broomfield Enterprise
Far from perfect, but it's entertaining, well-executed and definately worth a look.
Joe Utichi - FilmFocus
Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel - 3BlackChicks Review
Props itself up with allusions to Deep Thoughts but in reality is just a long action movie gussied up in special effects.
Michael W. Phillips, Jr. - Goatdog's Movies
I, Robot succeeds where other movies that blend science fiction and mystery fiction have failed.
Jeffrey Westhoff - Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
...every once in awhile, this summer popcorn sci-fi movie provides a glimmer of Asimov...
Lori Hoffman - Atlantic City Weekly
James O'Ehley - Sci-Fi Movie Page
A fun , surprisingly smart ride that is also true to the spirit of Asimov's more thoughtful and low-key work.
Karina Montgomery - Cinerina
I, Robot is a disappointment not because of what it is, but because of what it could have been.
David Cornelius - eFilmCritic.com
Mixing animation and live action nearly seamlessly, I, ROBOT turns Isaac Asimov's robot world into the backdrop for a prosaic summer action film.
Mark R. Leeper - rec.arts.movies.reviews
Dean Essner - Sunday Times (Australia)
I, Robot is the meanest, meatiest, coolest, most engaging and exciting science fiction movie in a long time.
Urban Cinefile Critics - Urban Cinefile
Dean Essner - Boston Phoenix
I, Robot is the summer's best action movie so far. It proves that you don't necessarily need to detach your brain in order to walk into a big budget summer blockbuster.
Jeff Otto - IGN Movies
It's a hard thing to pay attention to, as you'll be too busy analyzing the inherent impossibilities created by the plot holes and groaning loudly over the '70s-era TV-cop-show schtick.
Dean Essner - Orlando Weekly
I, Robot fails to do much of anything other than take our money and repay us with some moments of CGI-induced spectacle and a handful of rehashed ideas.
Randy Shulman - Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
A thinking person's action picture ... it is definitely one of this summer's better blockbusters.
Steve Rhodes - Internet Reviews
It's good to know that, in the future, we can still thaw out a cryogenically-preserved Will Smith to save the world every July.
Kevin A. Ranson - MovieCrypt.com
I, Robot is that rare entry among summer blockbusters -- a film with something on its mind.
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Delivers the goods as a zippy piece of sci-fi pulp.
Matt Brunson - Creative Loafing
When 'I, Robot' digs in to deliver the goods, it does so with first-rate action and special effects sequences that are thrilling.
Christopher Smith - Bangor Daily News (Maine)
...feels like a promising (if brazenly derivative) sci-fi actioner that was at some crucial point hijacked by the ego of a desperately needy superstar.
Sean Burns - Philadelphia Weekly
It's a good, workmanlike popcorn movie, but nothing more
Eric Lurio - Greenwich Village Gazette
Dean Essner - St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Dean Essner - Baltimore Sun
While not a classic by any means, is still a mostly entertaining experience.
Pete Vonder Haar - Film Threat
The film's accumulation of unnecessary complications, bad visual choices, one completely superfluous character (LaBeouf), and tonally inappropriate quips makes us distractedly ponder the limits of human rather than artificial intelligence.
Marjorie Baumgarten - Austin Chronicle
Maybe we should start having robots write movie scripts.
John R. McEwen - Film Quips Online
I, Robot is an enthralling bit of genre fiction; overcoming an uncertainty of focus with a handful of terrific scenes.
Mark Palermo - Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
The plot isn't very smart or exciting, but the action, including the scene in which the house is demolished, is spectacular.
James Verniere - Boston Herald
Pasajera, veraniega y con formulas probadas, seguro que generara ingresos, a costa de dejarnos en la espera de una cinta que rinda tributo a Asimov con dignidad.
Alex Ramirez - Cinenganos
I, Robot may not break much new ground, but it's engaging enough in what it does to keep the viewer interested.
Jean Lowerison - San Diego Metropolitan
Pretty to look at but as cold and removed as its title character.
Angela Baldassarre - Sympatico.ca
... a slick, consistently entertaining thrill ride ...
Richard Roeper - Ebert & Roeper
You hope for another "Independence Day" but what you get is another "Wild, Wild West".
Jackie K. Cooper - jackiekcooper.com
It's fun, sure, but uninspired. We've seen it all before... Will Smith does his old Will Smith thing again, with only the minimum level of actual entertainment to dress it up.
Eric D. Snider - EricDSnider.com
A robot must protect itself as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law, the Law of Thermodynamics, the Law of the Jungle, or Law and Order: SVU.
Mark Ramsey - MovieJuice!
Best of all, this is a story that's actually about something.
Rich Cline - Shadows on the Wall
Good character development and the great on-screen chemistry between Smith and Bridget Moynahan also give this movie a big boost.
Robert Roten - Laramie Movie Scope
Asimov's anthology is an Orwellian cautionary tale (written before the term existed). Alex Proyas' film is a Big Dumb Summer Action Movie starring Will Smith.
Jonathan R. Perry - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
The message is old hat by now, but I, Robot is a genuine Will Smith Movie. What more do you need?
Mike McGranaghan - Aisle Seat
Despite an admirable effort on the part of its creative team, this new technological thriller is at odds with itself from the very first moments.
Gabriel Shanks - Mixed Reviews
Despite its familiar, derivative, yet ironic, story, it's a sleek, stylish, sinister fun-flick with a speculative metaphysical ending that makes you think.
Susan Granger - Modamag.com
[E]nough breathtaking visuals to make you forgive the movie its plot holes and its tendency to lapse into product placement parody.
Austin O'Connor - Lowell Sun
This movie is blatant when it should have been subtle, and this is never more evident than in the unpleasant performance of its star, Will Smith.
Joe Baltake - Sacramento Bee
While I, Robot is consistently entertaining and considerably smarter than your average summer action flick, it's never particularly exciting or emotionally compelling.
Timothy Knight - Reel.com
Bad 'bots, bad 'bots, what ya gonna do?
James Sanford - James Sanford on Film
Perhaps some day the original Asimov stories will make it to the screen... [T]his I, Robot is one of the best science-fiction films we're likely to see this year.
Daniel M. Kimmel - Worcester Telegram & Gazette
As far as popcorn summer flicks go, this one's error-free.
Dean Essner - E! Online
[A] self-important, derivative and muddled sci-fi thriller.
Mary F. Pols - Contra Costa Times
[The screenplay is] good enough to keep things moving, to supply Smith with one- liners and to provide an excuse for the compelling backdrop.
Mick LaSalle - San Francisco Chronicle
A real missed opportunity - a potentially groundbreaking film reduced to a mess fit only for the slack-jawed mallrats that it is being aimed...
Peter Sobczynski - Critic Doctor
A good story with one of two parts that malfunction - the wise-guy comedy is going to make the movie more commercial, but in this case, it hurts the story.
Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone - TheMovieChicks.com
I, Robot is everything a summer blockbuster should be
Christian Toto - Washington Times
This Asimov-inspired adaptation is the rare summer blockbuster that supplies an actual science fiction story - albeit cleverly packaged to look like a 'Will Smith movie.'
Jon Niccum - Lawrence Journal-World
An unexpectedly engaging futuristic mystery.
Maitland McDonagh - TV Guide's Movie Guide
...a Will Smith cop picture with the slight novelty of having robots as perps.
Josh Larsen - Sun Publications (Chicago, IL)
Robots, explosions, gunplay, action, Will Smith...hmmm, it must be July.
John Venable - Supercala.com
The film goes where you expect, with the rather programmed feel of a 'classic' revisited with both money and zeal.
David Elliott - San Diego Union-Tribune
A watchable enough piece of summer entertainment.
Robert Denerstein - Denver Rocky Mountain News
It's an action thriller that races at breakneck speed and dazzles the audience, even if this program still has a few bugs to iron out.
Jeffrey Bruner - Des Moines Register
The Three Laws of Robotics still seem as fresh, compelling and provocative as ever.
Donald Munro - Fresno Bee
Much of the movie feels dull or derivative.
Stephen Whitty - Newark Star-Ledger
Smart and remarkably well-plotted.
Jack Garner - Journal News (Westchester, NY)
Will Smith is darker, sexier in his latest summer blockbuster... but despite an entertaining execution of Isaac Asimov's robotic visions, it leaves you cold.
David Foucher - EDGE Boston
Director Alex Proyas lays on the Tomorrowland awe of shiny metallics, techno-worship and fascist efficiency that make the future look like a nice place to visit.
Terry Lawson - Detroit Free Press
The special effects are uninspiringly video-gamey and that John Woo- and Matrix-imbued, slo-mo mid-air stuntwork is unfulfillingly cliche...
Aaron Hillis - Premiere Magazine
In the end, what will be remembered is how disappointing a treatment this is of some pretty revered source material.
Jeff Vice - Deseret News, Salt Lake City
[Asimov] probably would have been 'appalled by' this cartoonish creation.
Bruce Kirkland - Jam! Movies
May be slick, but it's as cold and dehumanized as a robot.
Louis B. Hobson - Jam! Movies
...what we basically have here is a summer movie disguised as a sci-fi epic. On that level, it works.
David Nusair - Reel Film Reviews
Purely mechanical scenario owes much to robot-think, but little to Asimov's scientifically informed humanism.
Bob Strauss - Los Angeles Daily News
Substandard Will Smith action-hero vehicle.
Doug Kim - Seattle Times
There's no swifter way to ruin 'not bad' than a reminder of something truly great... and for I, Robot, that reminder is never further away than the title.
Rob Vaux - Flipside Movie Emporium
It's an intriguing mix, if not always a smooth one. Yet, to its credit, I, Robot never gives up on [its] ideas, not even at the height of all the sound and fury.
Carol Cling - Las Vegas Review-Journal
A summer action movie that has a brain and doesn't let it atrophy? Fan me, I'm fainting!
Lawrence Toppman - Charlotte Observer
An overbudgeted, underscripted, lazy piece of work
Marty Mapes - Movie Habit
It's a flimsily sketched psychological sci-fi movie that never feels more than being robotic.
Dennis Schwartz - Ozus' World Movie Reviews
The script is a lackadaisical and choppy thing, more interested in showing off Smith's buff bod (successfully) and his sharp wit (not so successfully)
Andrea Chase - Killer Movie Reviews
Taken simply as a Will Smith Summer Blockbuster, I, Robot scores above average.
M.E. Russell - Oregonian
...Thrilling, it's intriguing and most of all, a lot of fun. It frankly takes a welcome 'byte' out of every other blockbuster on show at the moment
Clint Morris - Mediasharx
Pretty good science fiction.
Robert W. Butler - Kansas City Star
So the unlikely allies: A robot hater, a robot lover and a robot, all team up to solve the case. It's kinda cute.
Phil Villarreal - Arizona Daily Star
When Smith and Monaghan are interacting with Sonny the robot, you swear he's a real person who just happens to look a bit odd.
Rebecca Murray - About.com
A movie that never stops feeling like an advertisement for itself.
Bruce Newman - San Jose Mercury News
Del's repeatedly attacked by bad robots, marked by glowing red lights in their chests and behaviors not a little derivative of the first Terminator at his film's end.
Cynthia Fuchs - PopMatters
I, Robot is an engrossing sci-fi thriller with Will Smith playing a rebel with a cause in 2035 Chicago where robots are in abundance.
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat - Spirituality and Practice
The effects work here doesn't break any incredible new ground or shatter any records, and yet this is one of the most visually impressive movies I have ever seen.
Eugene Novikov - Film Blather
I, Robot is the best kind of adventure movie, one that engages your heart, your sense of humor and your ache for a good yarn.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) - St. Paul Pioneer Press
More like Dorothy wandering lost through the great land of Oz, only without the heart of A.I., the brains of Minority Report or the courage of Blade Runner.
Erik Childress - eFilmCritic.com
Engagingly silly film.
Duane Dudek - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
I, Robot is a slice of sci-fi heaven with a hearty side of bewitching visual euphoria.
Emily Blunt - Blunt Review
A hunk of expensive, lifeless junk.
Jeffrey M. Anderson - Combustible Celluloid
After being in a string of dismal summer films, Will Smith is back and he finally does a good movie! I, Robot is a fun, if not flawed sci-fi film worth watching.
Michelle Alexandria - Eclipse Magazine
Worlds better than a mess like Men in Black II.
Eleanor Ringel Gillespie - Atlanta Journal-Constitution
At least it's a beautiful crappy movie, and nearly worth seeing for the special effects and set design alone.
Josh Bell - Las Vegas Weekly
Filmmaker Alex Proyas finally finds the perfect balance between the real world and the one of his imagination, breathing humanity into a genre gleaming with artifice.
Todd Gilchrist - FilmStew.com
Much in the same way that Blade Runner redefined the science-fiction/ suspense genre in the 1980s, I, Robot will for a new generation.
Jeffrey Lyles - Gazette (MD)
The movie has a handful of things that will make it worth watching on cable, someday.
Alex Sandell - Juicy Cerebellum
It's a Will Smith movie... with robots. It's a brilliant concept, really.
Fred Topel - About.com
Only if you've never seen one before, it's the best sci-fi movie ever made. It's entertaining, but essentially a shiny new retread of older models.
Nick Rogers - State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
While it's hardly a philosophical film, the screenplay by Jeff Vintar and Akiva Goldsman does have an idea or two.
David Sterritt - Christian Science Monitor
I, Robot is a movie destined for fast-forward buttons the world over.
Scott Weinberg - eFilmCritic.com
It may not be Asimov but its plot is truly labyrinthine, it works a specific theme and it's happy to end itself in a shroud of enigma.
William Arnold - Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Brickbat socialism in a dimwit populist entertainment. . . The film is about as subtle as a dump truck.
Walter Chaw - Film Freak Central
Isaac Asimov's colorful fantasies for teenage boys a half-century and more ago are intact.
Jack Zink - South Florida Sun-Sentinel
I, Robot is not as nerdy as it sounds ... It's one of the most interesting films of the summer
Willie Waffle - WaffleMovies.com
The smallest effects are as seamless and important to the story as the big ones, from Spooner's examination of 1001 robots standing in formation to the wink of an eye.
Nell Minow - Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
Discerning horror fans will enjoy this futuristic science fiction actioner for its dark, sinister elements.
Staci Layne Wilson - Horror.com
It has a slow buildup, but its final third manages to generate some eye-popping thrills without the usual obligatory dismissal of all narrative in the face of explosions.
Luke Y. Thompson - New Times
Awesome fx, poor story.
Harvey S. Karten - Compuserve
So much for Gort and C-3PO. ... I, Robot explodes with some of the most impressive action sequences in years.
Larry Ratliff - San Antonio Express-News
[B]reaks new cinematic ground in the realm of speculative scientific philosophy... for 1953.
MaryAnn Johanson - Flick Filosopher
A freshly microwaved mix of Blade Runner and Minority Report topped with a big dollop of cheese.
Jeffrey Chen - ReelTalk Movie Reviews
A whodunit that keeps you guessing right to the end.
Gene Seymour - Newsday
Big-budget, big-effects tale of men and machines has a tiny imagination and a robo-crafted soul.
James Rocchi - Netflix
Easily this summer's most welcome big-budget surprise, a studio film that isn't afraid to ask its audience to think.
Wade Major - Boxoffice Magazine
A visually impressive effort that mixes the pizzazz of an action-oriented popcorn movie with a more humane sensibility than is usually the case.
Frank Swietek - One Guy's Opinion
I guess a summer special effects blockbuster with plot development is too much to ask for. Maybe I should have my own wiring examined.
David Levine - Filmcritic.com
Victoria Alexander - Movie Reviews in Croatian
At first Smith feels miscast, but he warms into the role. Good pace, nice robot effects, entertaining.
Ross Anthony - Hollywood Report Card
Some of the most convincing and lifelike visual effects in movie history. This is a wide-scope sci-fi thriller done right.
Dustin Putman - DustinPutman.com
'Lots of exciting action sequences, a charismatic hero, a few chuckles here and there and some top-drawer special effects work. The only thing it lacks is Isaac Asimov.
Sean McBride - Sean the Movie Guy
Nothing but one big chase scene...It plays as if robots even wrote the script -- and stupid robots at that.
Rob Blackwelder - SPLICEDWire
One can't help but admire a know-how that permits a generation of walking nuts-and-bolts to move effortlessly amongst men.
Jeanne Aufmuth - Palo Alto Weekly
A cool summer movie packing a nice mix of action, explosions, and brains.
Joshua Tyler - CinemaBlend.com
...I can't say that this movie turned out to be the dark, kick-***, sci-fi classic motion picture for which I was hoping, but it was still a damn good time...
JoBlo - JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Androids may dream of electric sheep, but I, Robot's multi-million dollar machines are remnants of summer films gone by.
