'I, Robot'
(Will Smith, Bridget Moynahan, Alan Tudyk / PG-13 / 93 mins / 20th Century Fox)

Overview: The story, set in 2035, focuses on a robot-hating detective named Del Spooner (Will Smith) who is investigating the murder of Dr. Miles Hogenmiller, an employee at U.S. Robotics. As strange as it may seem, a robot named Sonny is the prime suspect; for Sonny to have committed the crime would be a violation of the basic laws of robotics. Dr. Susan Calvin, a psychologist, is helping Spooner in his investigation.

Verdict: I mean, come on, the plot is simple-minded and disappointing and looks to have been assembled from the spare parts of dozens of previous sci-fi pictures! The disjointed and inexplicable story means that whilst 'I, Robot' is a decent summer sci-fi romp it also bottoms out to be one of the smarter dumb movies I've seen in a while! What's principally missing from director Alex Proyas's thriller is the awe-inspiring wonder or exhilarating originality that might elevate the film above its mega-budgeted counterparts. So, if you're looking for a routine Will Smith cop-on-the-hunt thriller, then you've struck gold for sure!
