4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional thoughtful Sci-Fi, 9 May 2007
This review is from: A.I. Artificial Intelligence [2001] - 2 disc set [DVD] (DVD)
A.I. is a very thoughtful film that explores what it is that makes people human and where artificial intelligence fits into the equation. The film follows David a robot (Mecha) made in the image of a child and intended for couples that cannot have children of their own. When the family he is with abandon him David tries to find the Blue Fairy from the Pinocchio story so that she can make him into a real boy.

The whole human=robot storyline seems to have been done to death in Sci-Fi but this version of it is touching and involving. The visual graphics in the film are superb and the writing and direction is as competent as you would expect from a Spielberg film. Add to this some great performances by all those involved, especially Jude Law as the Mecha Gigolo Joe. The main problem with this film and the only thing that is stopping me from giving it five stars is the rather oddly chosen ending, the film would have probably have been better off finishing 30 minutes earlier and still have been just as good.
