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
For the most part, this is thrilling fun.
Desson Thomson — Washington Post
Succeed on its own terms as an entertaining mid-season popcorn movie.
Ann Hornaday — 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.
