A.I.: Artificial Intelligence August 27, 2006

Posted by Shujath in English, Movies, Reviews.

Another one of my Spielberg favorites. Though this movie was supposed to be made by Stanley Kubrick, because of his demise before the production Spielberg took over the reins and filmed it. This is one of the very very few movies in which I had tears in my eyes towards the end.

The plot is a futuristic sci-one one where a new experiment to create a robot with emotions is taking place. The first experimental piece called David (played by Haley Joel Osment) is given to a family whose only child is in a coma like condition. David starts loving his family very much but when their original child recovers circumstances make the parents abandon David. David realizes that he is a robot and longs to be “real”. He finds a friend (a robotic gigolo played by Jude Law) who embark on a search to make David “real”. Towards the end when David realizes that he is just another piece in the assembly line of robots with feelings he is grief stricken and jumps off a building. At this point I expected the credits to roll but what happens in the next fifteen minutes just glued me to my seat. In my opinion, this is one of the greatest movie climaxes.

The performances by Haley Joel Osment and Jude Law are great. Spielberg is brilliant as usual. This one’s surely a must watch.
