I, Robot [WS] [DVD] [2004]

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.

    Great movie but don't buy it for the 3D

    I already owned this movie on DVD but had not purchased it on blu-ray. I enjoyed the movie and felt it was good enough to upgrade from DVD to blu-ray. When I found out 3D was available I couldn't wait to watch it again....... The 3D was very dissapointing. I am a big fan of 3D and there are several movies out there that make you say WOW at the 3D effects. Unfortunately, this was not one of them. If you plan on buying this movie I would say to only buy the blu-ray HD version and save your money by not buying the 3D version.

    iRobot is a great movie. Thrilling, fast-paced. If you're purchasing this Blu-ray 3D to add to your 3D collection, you may be disappointed. The 3D is great where the effect is used to its max which is rarely. It's basically a re-release of the 2D version with a few 3D effects thrown in. Not really worth the extra cost of the 3D.

    I, Robot 3D Version

    The story will keep your attention to the end. The Robots and automation show the possibilities of what man can create. But, can it be wisely controlled? I can recommend the movie story highly, but the 3D version is formatted with lost a portion of the sides of the image but has minor added image height vs. the 2D version. The 3D is also not the best as it is simulated from the 2D images. As such, I prefer the 2D version.

    Not Worth Buying the 3D Version

    I, Robot is a wonderful classic movie that I love to watch again and again. However, buying the 3D version was a waste of my money. There really isn't anything spectacular done with 3D efffects here. Buy the 2D version and save yourself some money. If you want to see great 3D effects and/or show off your new 3D TV, buy Hugo. That has amazing 3D!

    Nice action movie

    I Robot is a great action movie. Lots of robots which look very cool and futuristic. The plot is good. Everything is futuristic in this movie. Will Smith's acting is very good( He kind of reminds me of MEN IN Black in this movie). The action scenes are amazing( wild), it feels like you are part of it. Overall great movie. if you like robots and action, you will definitely love this movie.
