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 Spooner first meets Sunny in the lab, Spooner draws a large gun from his shoulder holster. Then Sunny leaps over Spooner, knocking the gun out of Spooner's hand and grabbing it himself and pointing it at Spooner. Spooner then bends down and draws a smaller backup weapon from his ankle holster. Sunny then escapes the room by jumping through the window.

Spooner gives chase and when he arrives in the lobby below - we see Spooner holding the large gun and subsequently holstering it back in his shoulder holster before picking up the gun Sunny had dropped while fleeing - which is also a large gun. See more »

Great Special Effects, Looked Real And A Good Story Overall.
2 January 2005 | by IndianaFordSee all my reviews

I thought the concept of the storyline was good, as it could be conceived as realistic. Given the ever increasing advances in modern technology, one can, indeed, conceive the possibility of this kind of future occurrence.

I did not really see any flaws in this movie or in the actor's character but the philosophical aspect of the movie questions at what point does artificial intelligence cease to be artificial and true consciousness arise? Anyhow, I did like the A.I. in this movie and would definitely recommend, especially if you like Will Smith movies are the Terminator series. I do, however, prefer there to be no sequels to this movie due to the fact that a sequel would probably be no more than a revamped version of the first one. With that being said, I recommend seeing it. 8/10
