I Robot 2004
In the movie, I Robot featuring futuristic sci-fi robotic lifestyle directed by Alex Proyas shows the expected lifestyle of 2035 A.D. Will Smith played a role of a police detective named Spooner. In this movie the director have precast our coming future in a remarkably astonishing and magnificent manner. In the movie, robots are used for everything; people hire robots as their servants who serve to humans as their masters. In the movie, they represent how future technology and developing enhancement can bring a tremendous change in our daily life. This recreational change can revolutionize the entire humanity and change the dimension how people look at labor. The movie show robots have taken over all the tasks done by lower class (labor) people nowadays. It shows robots delivering packages, machines working on their own, independent means of transportation being used by humans.
In today’s modern world, advancements of technology and machines have been working along on a rapidly rising at a relatively fast pace. The following is the foundation of the movie’s homicide unidentified theme and the queries being arising were every time a robot apparently went outside of the three laws of robotics; “A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.” 19 years in future, the year 2035, Chicago Detective Del Spooner is appointed for investigation of the shadowy suicide of leading robot scientist Alfred Lanning (James Cromwell). Dr. Lanning, who is a brilliant and devoted roboticist, has allegedly jumped from a balcony within the U.S. Robotics building, but Spooner suspects something fishy was going on. The movie is full of prevailing revolutionary cars and technology. Due to a misunderstanding between Spooner and his captain he gets his badge pulled off and is suspended, but keeps pushing to solve the crime on his own time. Spooner has this myth in his head that artificial intelligence is our enemy. Along the way in the movie, Spooner persists uncountable physical explorations and lastly unravels the mystery of Dr. Lanning’s murder with the help of the robust Dr. Susan Calvin (Bridget Moynahan).
The director has portrayed Spooner’s role into an expressively hurting character. He believes that his father lost all of his self-reliance and human value when he had to lose his job by the beginning of technological improvement, which in turn, Spooner has strong-minded caused his Dad’s death. Spooner’s wife divorced him because of his dedication to the police station, because of which he didn’t give his wife enough time. These occurrences in his life made him a wicked person. Additional factors merged into this movie is a reacquiring vision of a girl stuck in a car after an accident. She is suffering to set herself free from the car as it drowns to the base of a lake. Despite the fact Spooner feels powerless, he still tries to save her and blames a robot for her death because the robot at that scene; Spooner claimed, “Was too logical.”
All he had left in this world was his loving Granny (Emily Tennant). Granny’s character is portrayed as a “Christian” woman and is the unique person he sticks onto for emotional provision. Granny has perceptibly taught Spooner some things about Jesus, as his character pleads to fluctuate with the villain, President of U.S. Robotics, Lance Robertson when he articulates that “a robot could no more kill a human—than a human could walk on water.” Spooner defines his part by saying “…there was a man once who did!” Granny is caught by a run-amuck robot and held captive in a scene, and we see her whirling to God for her support by worshiping to God aloud; “…because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.”
In conclusion, the hero (Spooner) saves the humanity, nonetheless alongside the way he learned to have faith in a higher motive for life. Sonny’s capability to defend, preserve and remain loyal to Spooner and all humans he came across, spoke of how people must be accountable for each other, no matter where they from the storm. Although the fight was between men and robots, it could well be defined as a conflict between self. Sonny’s character presents freedom as to find one’s purpose.
