- ONE - A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.- TWO - A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.- THREE - A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.- The Three Laws of Robotics
In the year 2035, technology and robots are a trusted part of everyday life. They clean our homes, deliver our packages, walk our pets - even care for our children - all under the comforting protection of the three laws of robotics. But what if that trust were shattered?
"I, Robot" opens at the time of a technological and social precipice, as the number of robots in the world is about to triple. With the release of U.S. Robotics' latest model - the NS-5 Automated Domestic Assistant - there will now be one robot for every five humans.
The first in the next generation of robots made from an ultra-strong alloy, the NS-5 is designed to do everything from to cooking your family dinner to balancing your checkbook. The mass distribution of the NS-5 will solidify U.S. Robotics' position as the most powerful company in the history of the planet.
But Del Spooner, a gifted young police detective, is convinced that robots are not to be trusted - whatever the three laws might promise. When he begins investigating what he alone believes is a murder perpetrated by a robot he uncovers a far more frightening threat to the human race.
What the critics are saying:
"Whether there's anything substantial under the sheen and CGI of Alex Proyas' glistening future vision is debatable, but this enjoyable, engrossing picture is at least intelligently artificial."- Nev Pierce, BBCi Film"Strives to be so many things that it ultimately falls away to nothing, a heap of expensive metal parts."- Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com"The plot is simple-minded and disappointing, and the chase and action scenes are pretty much routine for movies in the sci-fi CGI genre."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
