Will Smith stars in this action thriller inspired by the classic short story collection by Isaac Asimov, and brought to the big screen by dynamic and visionary director Alex Proyas ("Dark City," "The Crow"). Although this movie does not stay true to the actual book or short story collection it does look like a great film adaptation of the movie. If anyone more familiar with the Isaac Asimov series would like to write a better write-up on the forums about this movie please do so. My knowledge of this series is very limited. After seeing the preview for this movie I do however think it looks really good.
The basic story is, in the year 2035, robots are an everyday household item, and everyone trusts them, except one, slightly paranoid detective (Smith) investigating what he alone believes is a crime perpetrated by a robot. The case leads him to discover a far more frightening threat to the human race. "I, Robot" uses a spectacular, state-of-the-art visual effects technique to bring a world of robots to life.
