Movie Review by Zara
November 7th, 2007

There's a joke going around in my house that none of us (that being my mother, sisters, daughter and I) can watch this movie ever again because my dad has used up the life span of viewing opportunities for it. Every single time that it is on basic cable, my dad is watching it. He even went out and bought the DVD (rare for him unless it's something completely off the wall like BUBBA HO-TEP) and watches it when he's in the mood to relax.

My dad is really weird some times.

I'll rate the movie without the multiple partial viewings that I've had from being in this house around him. When I first watched the movie, I was floored by how beautiful the robots were, the lead of which is based on the facial expressions and is voiced by the wonderful actor Alan Tudyk. Robots have come a long, long way in film, even over the course of my short 30 some odd years.

Sometimes that's enough to impress me. There are other times when movies have a lot of CGI and conspiracy theory stuff going on and I'm just annoyed, but this is a movie that can be fun and interesting in its first viewing. My dad used to Asimov's books and discussed some of the theories with me when I was a kid, so I suppose there is some sentimentality mixed in there as well.

In any case, this is at times touching, at times frightening and very action packed in just the right moments. Just don't go into overkill like my dad.

I picked up the source novel at the Book Barn a few months ago. I've been meaning to gt to it. I loves me some Asimov.

Being a sci-fi addict and having read or tried to read any I can get my hands on I'm always
wary when they make a movie of one of my favorite books this didn't seem to be based on any particular story but was enjoyable unlike the hatchet job done on starship troopers.

Something about Will Smith doing and adpatation of an Asimov story seems terribly wrong and funny at the same time.
