I think everything great about A.I. is missed by this badboy. Osmont’s David is 10 times more believable and where A.I. is able to be emotional without being sentimental this film here just absolutely goes for the tear ducts at every opportunity. I hated this one.

SFAM said:

I actually got the feeling that Williams was trying to emulate Data from Star Trek more than Osmont. But I agree that Data does a better job of hunizing androids.

ETM said:

I kept watching and couldn’t believe what I was seeing - like an elaborate and expensive train wreck. They were playing up the emotional bit all the time, and there I was thinking “They are pushing all the wrong buttons”. I can’t find anything wrong with this movie other than its very existence. And there it is.

SFAM said:

OK, so, um, what star rating would you give this?

ETM said:

I don’t know. I hate ratings. All I remember from this movie is that lousy gut feeling that tells you “Oh, God, make it stop, but not before I see all of it”. I guess I’d give it my “Can’t believe someone went through such trouble for THAT” rating.

Hi! It isn’t a short movie (130 minutes), but I didn’t feel the time when I watched it.

In my case, it is a good sign, because you are IN the story (a love story, of course -human nature-).

My understanding about the story is that Andrew was more human than any other android because somebody made a MISTAKE.

Be imperfect is human nature, and Andrew tried to obtain this category all the time.

My star rating is eight stars. ( I watched twice the movie)

SFAM said:

Hi Guardian Zero, Bicentennial Man is the type of movie that can reasonably given anywhere from 4 stars to 8 stars. Depending on how much you like the sappiness, and buy the human-robot factor, your milage will vary on this movie.

bicentennial movie is such a beautiful movie.
the movie was so captivating….

[ETM] said:

Thinking back on this, I can’t believe how severely miscast it was, how much they missed mark with the visuals… it’s almost as if it’s a spoof trying to tell you an important and seriously emotional tale.

Actually, IIRC the point of the movie was probably that his fall out of the window at the beginning of the movie is the cause of his uniqueness… that some microscopic damages in his positronic brain caused him to become so inventive

This is more like a family movie than any a high octane VR reality where the world is controlled by government drones VS the cybernetically upgraded resistance fighters’ type of thing ;)

I do recall watching this movie when I was like 15, and feeling very moved in places. I think it’s odd how they got Robin Williams to play warm fuzzy characters at first, and then got his to play really dark characters later (I myself don’t find Williams amusing by the way… on or off the screen).

SFAM Your a fucking moron. This movie is definitely a 10

I loved the movie.
I watched the book before the movie and was able to appriceate how close they managed to create the feeling behind the story with this movie.
I’d give it a 7.

really, | think this is just a romance movie that happens to involve androids.
not meant to be the other way around.

You know, I actually liked this film. Sure, it’s laden with moments of syrupy, farfetched unrealism, but it’s just a very easy to watch film. Unfortunately, it’s also kind of depressing, when the years go by and you see entire generations grow old and die off, especially Sam Neill. I like Sam Neill.

Hi
I realy like the issac asimov short stories.

The story about andrew is one of the best that he wrote as it turns the idea of cyberpunk on its head.

Most of cyberpunk is to what end do we stop being human

This story defined to what end do we become human

And it does it very well

I hadent even relised that this movie was the same story as the book.

But the book is by far the better

[alltho i would say that as i am a issac asimov fanboy]

i love the movie. and allot of the stuff made me think of how my life is to lonely and how i wish i could find love that would last a life time. like Andrew.

Lucas said:

I remember this movie, and I have to agree with Scott Smith. Andrew was trying to define himself as a human being. He saw himself as a seperate, unique individual. When he searched for others like himself, and did not find any others like himself, his search was still fruitfull. He learned that it is the differences, our flaws, that we each have that make us unique. I would rate the movie at 7 stars. If for no other reason, than seeing the families reaction to his presentation of the Laws of Robotics.

Wow man, we really are getting cheesy here now… =P only joking

mocah said:

well…this movie is such an outrageous one!! typically, I liked it but it seems unbelievable..anyways..Can I ask something?! What are those fields of A.I that covers this movie?!
any retort is a big help..thanks!

mocah said:

P.S.

I was amazed by this story..A robot like andrew that potrys as human. He believes that every creation in this earth has its own right. To be themselves. To pursue things that he/she deserves..

mocah said:

I agreed to what you have said.

mocah said:

nice lucas..

This is just a romantic movie set in a sci fi genre, but I have to say I have watched it maybe 4 or 5 times and it seems as fresh as the first time. I feel it is a classic of its kind and maybe my simple romantic mind accepts it all too readily for some people. It wouldn’t be everyones cup of tea, but then what film ever has been. I guess I am just a sucker for love stories no matter how they are dressed up….lol

hate this movie said:

absolutely hate this movie.
A robot makes itself as close to human as possible and then wants to criticise everything and everybody it comes in contact with and get married. The idiot woman wants to marry it and then it pushes to have the world senate create a law allowing idiot women to marry robots. Dumbest! give it one out of five stars
