So I'm watching 'I, Robot' for the first time ever* on film 4. I'm really really annoyed with it. How typical of bloody Hollywood to get everything completely wrong.

The whole reason Asimov created his three rules of robotics was to get away from the tired old clich├ęd whole “evil robots wanting to kill people and/or take over the world” plot. In doing so he created a backdrop which meant he was able to create far more interesting stories.

So what does Hollywood do? Twist those laws to have evil robots wanting to kill people and take over the world.

I didn't like the CGI either and I thought the whole look of the NS-5 robots was pretty ropey too.
