A good movie

I have already seen this flick a few years back but I thought it was time for a rewatch with Nick, my step-son. And, once again, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Indeed, I'm a huge fan of 'Dark City' and it was pretty cool to see Alex Proyas directing a big-budget SF flick. First of all, the whole thing looked pretty awesome (it did help that I watched it on my new purchased HD TV and even newer HD recorder. Good times!). Furthermore, I thought it was a rather smart blockbuster. Obviously, it doesn't reach Bergman's level but I thought it was pretty decent for a commercial feature. I mean, there were some interesting ideas about robots and their supposedly lack of consciouness. Still, they get side-tracked pretty often by some action scenes which were pretty awesome but I was personally more intrigued by the psychological side of the story. Anyway, this movie is another piece of edvidence that Will Smith knows how to pick up his projects. Indeed, even though they are usually blockbusters and makes some huge money, they are almost always interesting (ok, 'Wild Wild West' didn't work very well but everybody is entitled to make a mistake once in a while). To conclude, I thought it was a decent and entertaining SF blockbuster and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

I picked up Bergman because his movies are really deep (probably too deep for me) and, even though 'I, Robot' is a rather smart blockbuster, it never reaches this kind of depth.
