I, Robot

leave a comment »

A review of I, Robot in Saturday’s SMH nearly put me off seeing the movie. The reviewer claimed that Asimov would be turning in his grave at the way the robots’ behaviour violated Asimov’s fictional Three Laws of Robotics. However despite this I went to see the movie yesterday and came away very impressed. All was explained towards the end (though I figured it out halfway through the movie). I can only conclude that the reviewer didn’t fully understand the twist given to the interpretation of the Three Laws and leveraged his misunderstanding into an anti-Hollywood rant. Without giving away too much let me say that Asimov would have approved of this latest variant on his Three Laws of Robotics stories.
