Surprisingly good.
19 July 2004 | by (Palm Springs) – See all my reviews

This was actually a pretty good little film, considering that it was the video component of a party game. As I recall, you watched the movie, then drew cards giving you hints. Pretty simple stuff, but the movie had pretty decent production values, and ignited my passion for Asimov when I was a boy. There were a couple decent robot costumes, and a variety of futuristic settings. Nothing grand, but more than capable of setting the mood for the piece. The whole thing was maybe 1/2 hour, but managed to introduce quite a few interesting characters, people and robots. Special effects weren't bad either.

The film "I, Robot" could have learned something from this one. I sure wish my mom hadn't sold it when I went to college.
