Product Description


As paranoid cop Del Spooner, Will Smith (Independence Day, Men in Black) displays both his trademark quips and some impressive pectoral muscles in I, Robot. Only Spooner suspects that the robots that provide the near future with menial labor are going to turn on mankind--he's just not sure how. When a leading roboticist dies suspiciously, Spooner pursues a trail that may prove his suspicions. Don't expect much of a connection to Isaac Asimov's classic science fiction stories; I, Robot, the action movie, isn't prepared for any ruminations on the significance of artificial intelligence. This likable, efficient movie won't break any new ground, but it does have an idea or two to accompany its jolts and thrills, which puts it ahead of most recent action flicks. Also featuring Bridget Moynahan (The Sum of All Fears), Bruce Greenwood (The Sweet Hereafter), and James Cromwell (Babe, LA Confidential). --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Special Features

The I, Robot DVD has spectacular DTS and Dolby 5.1 sound, but a commentary track by director Alex Proyas (Dark City) and screenwriter Akiva Goldman is the only significant bonus feature. Their track, which was recorded before the movie hit theaters, discusses the characters and their backstories, the influence of other robot films such as Metropolis, and how all actors in Proyas's films have shower scenes. (They also mention a deleted scene that they speculate might appear on the DVD. It's not here, so perhaps a deluxe edition is in the works.) The making-of featurette spends more than half of its 12 minutes on plot summary, but it does have a couple interesting tidbits: Alan Tudyk being "Gollum-ized" to play Sonny the robot, and Paul Mercurio (Strictly Ballroom) putting actors through their paces as Robot Movement Coordinator. --David Horiuchi --This text refers to the DVD edition.

One of the great underrated action movies. A superb tale of caution about an excess of power in a few hands. A very clever moment is when USR (United States Robotics)'s double doors open and we see "USSR." Will Smith and the lovely Bridget Moynahan are both amusing. Sonny, the robot, is too.

Here is another potential classic ruined by too much Hollywood hokum. It's still quite worthy and fun.

The Good: I thought the concept, storyline, production values and acting were all great. Will Smith is the epitome of a charismatic action hero. His Del Spooner is a great character.

The Bad: Some of the action sequences are overblown to the point of being alienating. It goes way past implausible into comic book territory which doesn't fit here. When a film that begins intelligently starts to shred all sense of realism, it disengages the typical viewer. Genre switching mid-film is rarely a good idea.

For the 3D version, it is a very good conversion. It was originally shot in 2D and converted to 3D in 2012.

It has a PG-13 rating but it is generally considered fairly mild for that rating. Some language but no F-bombs. No sex but partial nudity (shower scene). "Stylized" violence, usually involving robots. Minor disturbing scenes including an apparent suicide jump aftermath and a drowning in a flashback.

By G. Edmonson TOP 500 REVIEWER on April 27 2014
Format: Blu-ray
The 3D version of this movie is not particularly amazing. The 3D is not very punchy and the 3D is mostly limited to the displacement of space behind the TV and not the space between the TV and the viewer, though even the deep space doesn't often seem magnified to any great degree. There are a few instances when shards of glass seem to blow out into the viewers space, but other than that don't expect much 3D effects in front of the screen. I found the 3D on movies like Dredd, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Resident Evil: Retribution, Prometheus, or The Avengers to be much more thrilling to watch. If one has enhancements on their TV to exaggerate the 3D then this helps somewhat but still it doesn't come close to comparing with some of the other films I've mentioned. The aspect ratio on this film is such that it does fill the whole screen so that is a plus. The movie itself is also well done, but if one already has it on blu-ray then one might not find it worth upgrading to 3D.

This is a very engaging sci-fi film starring Will Smith. It's a sci-fi, suspense, thriller, action film and keeps you watching the whole way through. Set in a future where robots are made to serve humans, Smith plays a detective solving a murder which he believes was committed by a robot. I won't give any more away.

Both the DVD and the Blu-ray are presented in 2.35:1 ratio widescreen. The DVD looks good but the Blu-ray looks and sounds even better.

The DVD has a few Special Features: a commentary track, a making of featurette, a photo gallery. The Blu-ray has these plus several others, including an alternate ending and deleted scenes, featurettes on the special effects, etc. On the Blu-ray you access the special features using the four coloured buttons on your remote.

The DVD has an insert with chapter numbers/titles. The Blu-ray has no booklet or insert.

I picked up the Blu-ray for $5. While the DVD looked good, I'd recommend the Blu-ray for the improved quality.

"LAW I: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

LAW II: A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the first law.

LAW III: A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the first or second law."

The above is found printed on-screen at the beginning of this sci-fi action film.

This movie is loosely based ("suggested by," according to the end credits) on Isaac Asimov's short-story collection also entitled "I, Robot."

Some people don't seem to like this movie, but I found it interesting.

This movie is set in Chicago in the year 2035. By this time, anthropomorphic ("human-looking") robots are doing menial tasks for humans. All robots have as their core programming the three laws indicated above. But something seems to go wrong and a human is found dead. (Not just any human, but a genius roboticist played by James Cromwell.)

Enter homicide detective Dell Spooner (Will Smith who also was one of this movie's executive producers) who has to try to solve exactly what happened. A robopsychologist (Bridget Moynahan) aids Spooner in his investigation. (Believe it or not, even robots need shrinks.)

Yes, this movie has plenty of action and special effects. The action, though, is not mindless and I found myself pausing to think. As well, the special effects were done well and did not take over the movie. I liked especially how the robots interacted with humans. (The technique used for the robots was "motion capture" and I found it to be quite effective.
