I, Robot
It's the year 2035, and a Chicago-based corporation U.S. Robotics (USR) is set to roll out its most advanced robot yet, the NS-5. Soon, one in five Americans will have their very own robot. This causes great concern for detective Del Spooner (Will Smith), who fears these robots are capable of turning on their masters. No one, including Spooner’s boss (Chi McBride), believes his wild theories. When robotics inventor and Spooner’s personal friend, Dr. Alfred Lanning (James Cromwell) dies, apparently at the hands of a robot named Sonny (Alan Tudyk), investigators quickly dismiss the death as suicide. After all, robots aren't ever supposed to break laws. Lanning leaves Spooner with a pre-death holographic recording that offers clues to his murder and alludes to possible problems with the release of the new NS-5 robots. Spooner recruits USR psychologist Dr. Susan Calvin (Bridget Moynahan) to help him get inside the robotic “mind” despite the roadblocks thrown up by USR CEO Lawrence Robertson (Bruce Greenwood). Robertson refuses to participate in Spooner’s investigation and goes forward with the NS-5 release; not surprisingly, disastrous consequences follow. The film, directed by Alex Proyas, is well paced and has some heart stopping action sequences that will keep audiences coming to the multiplexes for the next week or two, until the next actioner arrives.
