Storyline

In 2035, techno-phobic homicide detective Del Spooner of the Chicago PD heads the investigation of the apparent suicide of leading robotics scientist, Dr. Alfred Lanning. Unconvinced of the motive, Spooner's investigation into Lanning's death reveals a trail of secrets and agendas within the USR (United States Robotics) corporation and suspicions of murder. Little does he know that his investigation would lead to uncovering a larger threat to humanity. Written by ahmetkozan

Goofs

When Farber runs across the street to catch up with Spooner, we can see a Sushi Express behind him. After the 2 speak and Farber turns to walk away, we can see they are standing in front of Sushi Express. But it might be so successful that there is one on nearly every corner, which would also allow them to live up to their name. See more »

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 »

I,Robot
14 June 2007 | by clayton36320133See all my reviews

The first time I saw this movie,I was just really surprised!What a good movie,it's just my taste.I love it,and I've seen it for about four times,and I can still watch it for another four more times!It's full of Sci-fi and action,they're both my favorite genre.

Sometimes I'm thinking about the robots in the movie,I think the thing that happens in the movie will come true in the future,how will the human in that Age,I believe there'll be a hero who'll save the world from being dominate by those cunning robots,they have no hearts,no love,no emotion,they just have an empty metal body.What'll happen if we're really ruled by them?I can't imagine how it could be,people are doing hard works while the robots are whipping them,how terrible.

Now,science and technology are well developed,human will use robots, let's think about our future,please care about ourselves.
