I, Robot

Lut and I went to see the film "I, Robot" yesterday. I'd been figuring to see this movie since I saw the trailers. The trailers made the movie look like it had no connection whatsoever with the collection of short stories by Isaac Asimov. However, it still looked like a fun flick, so I figured I'd just pretend it was called something like "Robots of Doom" and watch it anyway.

The movie is considerably better than I'd expected it to be. I'm going to leave it at that to avoid any possible spoilers. Maybe I'll write a spoiler entry later. But if you enjoy sf-action movies, "I, Robot" is well worth seeing.

On a related note: it's hard for me to say if Will Smith is a good actor or not, because in all the movies I've seen with him, he's always playing the same character. Different backgrounds, different settings, same action-hero smartaleck. However, I can say one thing for sure: he's a fine performer. A lot of fun to watch. He may always be playing the same character, but that character always feels like a real person. He's very much the star of this film, and he carries it well.
