Fresh: Succeed on its own terms as an entertaining mid-season popcorn movie.

- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, July 16, 2004

- Claudia Puig, USA Today, Friday, July 16, 2004

Rotten: Ring-a-ding dull.

This was awesome. Really recommend this to watch. Not a waste of time. No chance of getting bored I tell you. Two fave dialogue - Will Smith - "You're cat I'm black" (Seriously this made me laugh) "There's no way my luck is that bad"

Product placement galore! This movie sure doesn't leave it a mystery who its financers are. It feels like there's an add hidden in every scene, which does make it hard to take it seriously. And for a plot about robots, the ones in this one aren't particularily cool-looking. Granted that they've gone for simplicity and the "crash dummies" look, but I can't ignore the fact that they're a bit on the ugly side. Anyway, now that I have the negative elements out of the way, I'd like to move on the good ones. Because thankfully they are in higher numbers. First off, there's Will Smith, who you can always count on for some solid acting. Secondly, the story is very interesting. I haven't read any of Asimov's books, but after having seen this movie, I may definitely pick one up sometime. Nice action and special effects as well. Therefore, I think it does deserve an above-average rating. Don't expect to get your intellect stimulated though, because it's really nothing more than your typical popcorn flick. A good one at that, but probably very shallow compared to the source material. As is usually the case with novel-to-screen adaptations.
