i, robot is the blockbuster of the week, and it isn’t any more than just an average summer action movie, really. i’m not a huge asimov fan, and i don’t believe that i’ve read any of the books in his robot series, so any good things derived from his stories (or bad things done to his stories) weren’t really a big factor in how i thought about the film. of course, the story was not really originally inspired by the book of the same name, but rather it was a script that was adapted to the book as it was developed.

i think roger ebert really nailed it in his review, although i would be a little more harsh about the predictability of the plot. there’s really nothing new in this film.
