Set in a future Earth (2035 A.D.) where robots are common assistants and workers for their human owners, this is the story of "robotophobic" Chicago Police Detective Del Spooner's investigation into the murder of Dr. Alfred Lanning, who works at U.S. Robotics, in which a robot, Sonny , appears to be implicated, even though that would mean the robot had violated the Three Laws of Robotics, which is apparently impossible. It seems impossible because.. if robots can break those laws, there's nothing to stop them from taking over the world, as humans have grown to become completely dependent upon their robots. Or maybe... they already have? Aiding Spooner in his investigation is a psychologist, Dr. Susan Calvin, who specializes in the psyches of robots. Written by
During an interview on American Chopper: The Series (2003), Will Smith told how he wrecked the motorcycle at around 60 mph during the filming of the scene at the robot storage facility (you can see him begin to lose control in the film). See more »
When Farber runs across the street to catch up with Spooner, we can see a Sushi Express behind him. After the 2 speak and Farber turns to walk away, we can see they are standing in front of Sushi Express. See more »
Oh, boy, Asimov must be rolling over in his grave. They take his name to market something he wouldn't have stood for. Not only that, but they 'dumbed' the ideas up for the mall rats and mouth breathers out there so could follow the story. And lots of 'splotions too! Yay!
Then you have Will "sarcastic one-liner" Smith doing the same shtick he's done since Fresh Prince, throw in some really clichéd plot points, add some action, and wala! You have another bad Will Smith movie. This is Men in Black II mated with Bad Boys II. Perhaps this could be called, I, Stinkbutt or something? Much better than rob Asimov of his legacy by masquerading this turd as his own.
