AI, Artificial Intelligence Movie Review
Check out Kidzworlds review of AI - Artificial Intelligence. This movie is hardcore! Haley Joel Osment does an incredible job as David - a robot boy who can feel real love.
AI is set in the future where global warming has messed everything up. The oceans have risen and flooded the shores, cities are underwater and even the Statue of Liberty can't keep her head above water. This rocks for the fish, but it's not so good for the humans.
Robots are totally the 'in' thing. They don't eat, or sleep and can do everything people can - except feel emotions. They're filling up the planet faster than you can say "Hot new pop star" and David (Haley Joel Osment) is the latest prototype - a little robot boy, the first robot with feelings. Haley does an incredible job as the robot David - he doesn't blink once through the entire movie!
AI starts out slow. It's all about the little details of how David and the Swintons learn to accept one another. The action picks up near the middle of the movie as David, Teddy his robot bear toy and Gigolo Joe (Jude Law) embark on a quest. The three of them encounter incredible sights and sounds - 3 mile long bridges, holograms and sunken cities - as they travel through a bizarre futuristic city, meet Dr. Know (Robin Williams) and journey to the ends of the earth to help David find love.
There are a few flaws in AI. For instance: if you ever steal a police vehicle, the police WILL chase you - trust me. But other than that it's really well done. It has incredible characters, the coolest teddy bear and the best kid actor ever. It's totally worth checking out, just don't expect a comedy. Bring your brain and a box of tissues instead.
Movie Rating: PG-13
