I, Robot

Went to the mall to watch I, Robot with a friend.

Set in a future Earth (2035 A.D.) where robots are common assistants and workers for their human owners, this is the story of “robotophobic” Chicago Police Detective Del Spooner’s (Smith) investigation into the murder of Dr. Miles Hogenmiller, who works at U.S. Robotics (run by Greenwood), in which a robot, Sonny (Tudyk), appears to be implicated, even though that would mean the robot had violated the Laws of Robotics, which is apparently impossible. It seems impossible because.. if robots can break those laws, there’s nothing to stop them from taking over the world, as humans have grown to become completely dependent upon their robots. Or maybe… they already have? Aiding Spooner in his investigation is a psychologist, Dr. Susan Calvin (Moynahan), who specializes in the psyches of robots…

It was a good movie. I mean, from a non movie critic, I thought I got my money’s worth. IMDB shows that it currently recieved a 6.4 out of 10 but don’t listen to them. If you want an action flick, this is one to watch during the summer. If you want a movie to analyze and hope their is some short of deeper meaning and symbolism and all that mumbo jumbo, then yes, I agree with the current score for the movie. The plot ending was like all plot endings, with a twist. You would be surprised when you find out it is not who you think it is but rather who you thought it wouldn’t be, but I guess the writers knew they did a good job when they are able to fool you into thinking something else. I don’t know, maybe I am just babbling. Just go see it, if anything, it’s a cheap action flick.
