Written By Awir Aditya on Monday, January 18, 2010 | 11:16 PM

Genre: Science-fiction/Action/Mystery

Starring: Will Smith, Bridget Moynahan, Alan Tudyk (voice), James Cromwell, Bruce Greenwood

Place: Chicago, Year: 2035. The age of robots has arrived and robots are slaves for humans. Detective Spooner (Smith) despises robots and can never get around to trust them. Dr. Alfred Lenning (Cromwell) is known as the father of the robot. He is found dead in his office building lobby, which the police term as suicide. However, Spooner is not convinced and feels that Dr. Lenning was murdered. Robots are programmed to abide by three laws which all in all are supposed to protect humans at the cost of their own life. Spooner, along with psychologist Dr. Calvin (Moynahan) find Sonny (Tudyk) a robot that has emotions and other traits unknown to robots. He can also choose to ignore any of the three laws as per his wish. Spooner has to follow the trail of crumbs and find Dr. Lenning's killer and the mystery behind Sonny. The movie has a very basic plot and there aren't too many complications to it. Will Smith's entire get up and attitude doesn't suit him or his role and seems to be quite fake. The special effects fall a little short at times, but the movie still remains a good watch. Playing a little bit more on the murder mystery with a few interesting twists would have helped to a greater extent.

Thumbs up: A nice overall entertainment package
Thumbs down: Will Smith's look, weak climax

Rating: 7.4/10
