Within a few days the Martin family realizes that they don't have an ordinary droid as Andrew begins to experience emotions and creative thought. In a story that spans two centuries, Andrew learns the intricacies of humanity while trying to stop those who created him from destroying him.Written by
The backpack Andrew wears when going around looking for surviving robots like him is made by Swedish company Boblbee. See more »
When Andrew goes to Lloyd to sue for information as to the whereabouts of his robot counterparts, Lloyd states "the Freedom of Information Act does not cover suits by robots.".
There is nothing in the act that states that it is exclusively for humans. See more »
Best robot film ever. This really is a great film, which shows how a machine who strangely is endowed with creativity, thought and awareness unlike other robots, strives to become more than he is. This is a great film and very much about family life, emotions, what it means to be human, and trying to better oneself through both serving others and learning with others about oneself. If you ever wanted to be more than you are then watch this film. This is not so much a film about robots or sci-fi, but a film about life and humanity and relationships, love and family. The robots and sci-fi are just a scenario which allows us to explore ourselves more as humans and wonder about our existence.
