I robot is good

I first watched this film at 4 years old I loved it damn and hell aren't bad words and sex is minimal. Other language isn't that bad and violence is directed at robots mostly. Will Smith is his same old funny self and although not the best movie is pretty good. It's a classic

Entertaining, Will Smith Action Movie

I, Robot is very different than the book. If you go to this movie expecting a paper-to-screen transformation, you'll be disappointed in that aspect. However, that is probably the only aspect of this movie you could be disappointed by. Will Smith is a superb actor and the director creates a realistic future world. The plot develops through the movie and builds up to a satisfying finale. If you're in the mood for a PG-13, Sci-fi, action movie, this one of the best. Parents should know that I, Robot has a lot of action violence, mostly involving robots v.s. humans where robots are torn to bits and humans are thrown about, however it is almost all bloodless though. There is PG-13 swearing (s**ts, a*shole, jacka*s) and a side profile of a naked will smith (nothing visible).

It's OK for preteens, really.

It had a lot of product placements, but I didn't care. But they may concern others. The film was more suspenseful/scary than violent

An Engaging and Thoughtful Thriller!

I, ROBOT is well worth seeing. It promotes much thought and discussion and has an intriguing plot, plus great acting and special effects. But can your kids see it? Sex is minor, with one very mild innuendo and two three-second scenes where you see Will Smith and his girlfriend in the shower (seperately). His backside is barely visible and steam covers everything but her shoulders and head. Language is constant "s**t" is used at least a dozen times and there are heavy uses of "d**n", "a*s" and "SOBs" too. There are big bangs, clashes, explosions, and gunfights, but the only gore is some bloody scrapes on Will Smith (once he briefly spits out blood). There is a very tense scene where a young girl and Will Smith are seen in a car sinking in a lake, and a robot saves Will Smith instead of her (setting into motion his hatred of robots). This is a great film, and fine fare for teenagers and adults.

I liked it, but...

I talked my wife into going to this movie with our 5 yr. girl & 7 yr. boy First ten minutes of the movie I was thinking I should have left the kids home. Language was the big issue. The brief nudity is not a big deal. There is violence and death issues. We have talked to our kids about death and violence, but still feel this movie might have been too much for them to handle....The movie is very good. Effects are great.

Will is great; dumb story line

I love Will Smith...he was his usual great self in this one...but I thought the overall story was a dud. The robot-chasing-the-car was over-kill. I left mildly entertained, but would not recommend it to anyone as a GREAT movie.It is one I'd let my kids see (13 and 16); there were really few "disturbing" elements. A few tense moments when the robots take over Chicago, but its short-lived and kinda dumb.I'll be glad to see Will in another role like "Enemy of the State." THAT is a nail biter!!

Not for the Younguns!

Good action movie - Will Smith is great! His budding acceptance of Sonny is a good subplot. R rating for violence and language, but I'd let my 14-year old watch it without my thumb on the remote.
