    “A.I. Artificial Intelligence is one of those films...”

    Written on: 11/09/2003 by polainm (4 reviews written)

    A.I. Artificial Intelligence is one of those films that will mature in the archives, like T1 did. While this film had two directors (in a way) Spielberg has done a fine interpretation. His forte is relationships and this is very powerful in this film. This is not really a sci-fi as such but how a machine learns undying love for his mother which happens to be over 2000 years of undying love.

    Those of you who do not have children, come back to this when you do. Your rating will jump from 2 to… Read Full Review

    While this film is not perfect, I think you need to expect an thinking-mans/woman film and not a sci-fi FX bonanza and the above reviewer obviously expected the latter. In addition, this film will be entirely different for those who have children. Those who don't - you just won't get it. Really.
    <br>
    <br>The relationship and love between mother and child (both real and artificial) is very powerful in this film to those who do have children, and this is Spielberg's forte.
    <br>
    <br>For kids watching this - it is wasted on them. In about 15 years time this will become a classic. I remember when I saw T1 in a B-movie cinema in London when it first came out (not the second release). I knew this was going to be 'discovered'. AI is the same.
    <br>
    <br>Those who think is was a waste of video hire money go away, get married, have kids, then come back to it. You'll see.

    The film is based on 3 linked short stories by Brian Aldiss. Supertoys Last All Summer Long, Supertoys When Winter Comes, and Supertoys In Other Seasons. The final part of the film has no link to the stories whatsoever. It's as if he tried to tack a swatch of Close Encounters onto the fabric of the film. It is no wonder Aldiss distanced himself from the final product.
    <br>The movie is still entertaining and watchable. But without the unnecessary flights of fancy, it could have been so much more.

    It's hugely condescending to suggest that if someone doesn't have kids they won't understand this. We all have parents and understand the relationship. If that were all with this film it would have been a great film. The first hour was hugely interesting, exploring grief and the parent-child relationship, etc. But then it suddenly turned into a different and wholly unbelievable film, but I could have handled that, the whole running away from the authorities bit. It was that awful fairy tale last half hour or so which killed the film dead. It was the worst ending in cinema history. It had no relationship to the rest of the film, some weird highly evolved race of robots suddently finding the little boy, blah blah. It was a sad and pathetic attempt to tie the theme at the beginning to the end of the film as they'd gone so far off track in the middle. It was, essentially three films, the first one good, but not taken to its full possibilities, the second a vaguely engaging piece of Hollywood sci-fi celluloid and the third an absolute shocker of a turkey, ruining any goodwill left over from the first hour.
    <br>
    <br>A.I. is an appalling piece of cinema. And the worst bit is, you can so blatantly tell where Kubrick left off and Speilberg began, because only Speilberg is capable of producing that sort of unwatchable, over-sentimental garbage.

    If this is the worst final half hour of any movie you've ever seen, then you need to watch more films. Admitedly the ending is not as good as the body of the film, but there is much, much worse out there, believe me.

    “This was originally meant to be directed by Stanley...”

    Written on: 23/01/2002 by Amazon Customer. (1 review written)

    This was originally meant to be directed by Stanley Kubrick who had wanted to shoot this story of an android boy built for childless couples who is abandoned by his mother when her real son, who has been in a coma, comes back to the family fold after a miracle recovery. Kubrick was waiting for special effects technology to catch up with his ideas. Unfortunately the great director died shortly after finishing work on Eyes Wide Shut and so the directing duties were taken up by Steven Spielberg… Read Full Review

    Yup, I agree. The best thing I thought was good about this movie was the teddy bear robot.<p>
    <br>
    <br>I couldn't understand why the twin towers and the rest of New York City were still standing after the aliens came and said it had been 2000 years. I would thing that the sea would have rusted them away and have them fall over. <p>
    <br>Steve Spielberg really did a poor job with this film and it was 20 mins to long.
