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… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For all its flaws, I, Robot is arresting to look at."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"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."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"Will Smith almost redeems generic man vs. machine actioner."
‑ Renee Schonfeld, Common Sense Media
"The movie is at least a bit less annoying than director Alex Proyas' previous two genre attempts."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.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
"By adeptly combining action and ideas, it proves that Hollywood can still produce astonishing entertainment."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"... a slick, consistently entertaining thrill ride ..."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Pretty to look at but there's not much under the hood in this Isaac Asimov-based futuristic murder mystery..."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"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
"For those who like their sci-fi to have the depth and breadth of comic books."
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"Strives to be so many things that it ultimately falls away to nothing, a heap of expensive metal parts."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"For the most part, this is thrilling fun."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"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
"If you are looking for proof that Hollywood has completely run out of ideas, check out I, Robot."
‑ Uri Lessing, www.kcactive.com
"...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
