  • Whether audiences are pleased or vexed, very vexed, by A.I., any movie buff worth his salt will want to sift through this fascinating wreck of a movie. show more

  • By the end A.I. exhibits all its creators' bad traits and none of the good. So we end up with the structureless, meandering, slow-motion endlessness of Kubrick combined with the fuzzy, cuddly mindlessness of Spielberg. show more

  • A grim disappointment for grown-ups, and far too violent for young kids. I found it to be clumsy, misanthropic and intractably lifeless. show more

    This film I saw was interesting,that it gave an insight to human feelings and emotion.Haley Joel Osment made you cry,when he pleads with his earth mom for love. I guess it makes us realize God shows love in even the simple ant or blade of grass.Bravo,to the Wonderful cast.
