Crazy Credits

Instead of opening credits, the beginning of the movie features Isaac Asimov's 3 Laws of Robotics: 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. See more »

How could they get it wrong
23 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

OK flashy special effects, good actors, original plot good. How could they get it wrong? While not as bad as Doom, House of the Dead or Lovecraft wannabe movies. There is a serious lacking int the plot department, Assimov would not have like it probably we would not have allow it unless they paid him very very much and nor any one who read the books and like them well the truth be told the books and stories are more paced like an intelligent detective story than an action adventure book if they wanted that there are plenty of Salgari books out there. The depiction of the young Dr. Susan Calvin is outrageous, they thought.. why put the middle age intelligent woman lets just replace her with any nice looking actress to attract the male audience. Is a must avoid to any Assimov fan. Not based at best referenced to.
