I, Robot is a movie set in 2035 and it is about a detective guy called Detective Del Spooner (Will Smith) who investigates the suicide of a robotics creator called Alfred Lanning (James Cromwell) and believes that a robot who actually killed the robotics creator goes by the name Sonny actually murdered him and investigates with a very smart robot expert called Susan Calvin (Bridget Moynahan).

I was allowed to borrow this movie from one of my guy friends, who is fascinated by motorbikes and humanity related stuff. I came to enjoy it despite the fact that I switched off for most of it. My brothers and older sister also watched alot of it when they were younger.

This movie differs from other dystopian movies. For starters, Will Smith’s character lives in a fairly nice apartment. The point is that robots are starting to take over humanity and we are already living against computers anyway, which will be programmed into robots which will eventually have human minds (I honestly think that I’ve been writing/watching too much robot and dystopian related stuff).Why should a human, for instance, have to do something that a robot could do faster can a human ever could? It was very much a human vs robot battle in the movie which will only end in robots taking over the world for good. Despite the fact that Sonny could kill people, he was oddly loveable as a robot.

As for the cast, they were very good. Bridget Moynahan was badass in some ways and the movie also starred the young Shia LaBeouf. The whole hologram idea is regular in all science fiction stuff nowadays.

Decent cast, cool film and it is one of those film that will eventually predict what is going to happen to humanity in twenty or thirty years. The only thing that concerned me; what happened to the cat in the boot of the car?

4/5
