Robertson says "Maybe you would have banned the Internet to keep the libraries open".

When Spooner and Calvin are looking for Sonny at the warehouse, Calvin checks the computer, which says that there are 1001 robots present in the room. This is incorrect. There are 31 lines of robots from front to back. From left to right, there are more than 37 columns. Only 37 columns can be positively counted, but there are definitely more, as they can be seen as the camera pans. This means there are at least 1147 robots in the room, not 1001. See more »
Instead of opening credits, the beginning of the movie features Isaac Asimov's 3 Laws of Robotics: LAW I. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. LAW II. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. LAW III. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. See more »
Yeah, yeah, the CGI was cool. But that was about it. AWFUL, truly AWFUL acting--Bridget Moynahan- WOW, one of the WORST screen performances I've ever seen, and Will Smith, playing his one and only note over and over again. Yeah, the robots climbing up the side of the building were cool, and the robot fight towards the end was cool, but what the hell did we have to sit through 2 hours of dreck for that?? Horrible. Just horrible. Was it populated solely by relatives and friends of the director and producers? All the $$ they have to spend on this stuff and this is the crap they come up with? What a pile of trash. I can't believe the same guy who directed Dark City came up with this.
I wonder if Isaac Azimov has stopped spinning in his grave yet.
