Kubrick would have been awesome Spielbergs is saccharine. Good the first time I saw it now I can't sit thru it at all. Has no staying power that great films possess. Looks great and fine music well made but to much Spielbergs sugary kitsch to leave an aftertaste. Great line in the movie " I wish I told you about the world" will Bring tears

awesome flick...many plot twists yet the main theme is always there...one of the best "robot" movies ever produced!

A great sci-fi film!

Fascinating, as well as being Stanley Kubrick's unofficial final film!

A.I. robot-David is a perfect model of the true human heart in all in it's simplest and purest form. The acting is at perfection.

This was a brilliant and beautiful film. It was a right homage to the late Kubrick. I saw it in the theater and loved it. Haley Joel Osment was a young acting prodigy. Amazing talent.

This movie has some great moments, unfortunately they are few and far between a mess of horrible scripting. Other than that all the acting is good, and there are some terrific special effects. While this isn't a movie everyone can enjoy it is still worth checking out at least once. I would recommend this to fans of science fiction.

I just saw this movie for the first time since it's initial release. It left me in tears. It is a brilliant film. Incredible direction by Spielberg and a superlative performance by Haley Joel Osment (the kid from The Sixth Sense). Highly recommended.

Trying to figure out what this movie is actually about makes as much sense as trying to find the front of a beanbag chair.

" In the not-so-far future the polar ice caps have melted and the resulting rise of the ocean waters has drowned all the coastal cities of the world. Withdrawn to the interior of the continents, the human race keeps advancing, reaching the point of creating realistic robots (called mechas) to serve them. One of the mecha-producing companies builds David, an artificial kid which is the first to have real feelings, especially a never-ending love for his "mother", Monica. Monica is the woman who adopted him as a substitute for her real son, who remains in cryo-stasis, stricken by an incurable disease. David is living happily with Monica and her husband, but when their real son returns home after a cure is discovered, his life changes dramatically. "

Narrator: Those were the years when the icecaps melted due to the greenhouse gases and the oceans had risen and drowned so many cities along all the shorelines of the world. Amsterdam, Venice, New York forever lost. Millions of people were displaced. Climate became chaotic. Hundreds of millions of people starved in poorer countries. Elsewhere a high degree of prosperity survived when most governments in the developed world introduced legal sanctions to license pregnancies. Which was why robots, who were never hungry and did not consume resources beyond those of their first manufacture were so essential an economic link in the chain mail society.
