I love this movie! It is one of my favorites. Will Smith (Detective Spooner) plays the part to a tee. He's believable,emotional, and funny. I like that. and most of all, he's smart. He doesn't trust the robots, and he's not backing down. Dr. Lanning was his friend and he smells a rat when the Doctor ends up dead. "Looking" like a suicide, Spooner begins to investigate, finding robots at every turn trying to kill him. Of course, no one believes him because of the 3 laws that all robots are programmed with which prevents them from hurting a human. This movie is smart, sharp, funny and sticks it to hard core believers in the "god of technology". In the end, "Sonny", the unique creation of Dr. Lannings, saves the day by turning against the evil robots and helping the humans. Bravo! I don't see how one couldn't like Sonny, he's awesome!
Could have been a good plot...

Like most movies now a days, the premise was there, but the movie just fell flat. The ending had nothing to do with the overall plot. My choices in movies are now questioned by my household because of movies like this.
I love watching movies of all types and consider myself to be open minded when reviewing films but in this case I can only say that this movie was an absolute piece of crap. I feel like I raped my brain by sitting through 90 minutes of some of the worst acting I have ever seen. The only redeeming part of this movie was the special effects and the ending.
A zombie musician takes revenge on the punks that murdered raped and murdered his wife and him. Along the way he befriends his wife's little sister and a depressed police officer who takes care of her. Extreme violence and gore mixed with strong moral values may not it well with many viewers, but the beautiful Gothic cinematography, heavy metal soundtrack, and a charismatic performance by Brandon Lee in his final performance help elevate the film above the tasteless material. A horrific on set freak accident cost Lee his life and gives the film a disturbing sense of irony that may be too overwhelming for many viewers.
