Director Alex Proyas (Dark City, The Crow) helmed this sci-fi thriller inspired by the stories in Isaac Asimov's nine-story anthology of the same name. In the future presented in the film, humans have become exceedingly dependent on robots in their everyday lives. Robots have become more and more advanced, but each one is preprogrammed to always obey humans and to, under no circumstances, ever harm a human. So, when a scientist turns up dead and a humanoid robot is the main suspect, the world is left to wonder if they are as safe around their electronic servants as previously thought. Will Smith stars as Del Spooner, the robot-hating Chicago cop assigned to the murder investigation. Bridget Moynahan, Bruce Greenwood, James Cromwell, and Chi McBride also star.~Matthew Tobey

If you just want an interesting SF story, this should fill the bill. But if you're a staunch Asimov fan, you may be disappointed, or even possibly upset. The story here is only loosely connected to Asimov's Robot stories. The end credits say it is "Suggested by" Asimov's works (not "Based on"). The film does mention the 3 laws of robotics, and evens mentions the 0th law, but does so in a way that isn't exactly the way Asimov portrayed it. The film stretches things rather severely to show robots acting against man in opposition to the laws.
The single BluRay disc contains both 3D and 2D versions of the film. It comes up in 3D mode by default (for menus), and asks which version you want to watch when you choose to play. If you don't have a 3D setup, you can guess the blurred text well enough to make it work. Then again, if you don't have a 3D setup, you probably wouldn't buy this edition anyway.
There are no Bonus Features on the BluRay disc. If you really like such additions, and are considering upgrading from the DVD release which had numerous features, then don't worry -- the DVD included in the set is the same one as the DVD release and has all the same features on it. So it just means the BFs you get are all DVD quality instead of HiDef. But you don't lose them.

GOOD ACTING AND ACTION MOVIE
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
Great movie for my movie collection. I recommend buying this movie.
I prefer storylines that encourages the audience to use their minds, their imagination...as compared to action movies where all of the thinking and stimulation is done for them.
IRobot takes the audience into one possible outcome of where technology is currently headed especially as it relates to AI.
The one critical reality of where we are at today and where we are headed is that no one can unlearn anything. The producer of this movie never addresses this conundrum which would be equally true in this story if not more so.
Having said that, though, this is still worth your time to watch, think, and become involved.
