In the near future, a police officer specializes in malfunctioning robots. When a robot turns out to have been programmed to kill, he begins to uncover a homicidal plot to create killer robots… and his son becomes a target.
User Reviews: Okay this movie is far from perfect. However, on a rainy day, or lazy weekend afternoon the movie is highly enjoyable.
Like a lot of movies it starts out great but gets a little silly towards the end.
What makes this movie is Tom Selleck. He is a very under-appreciated actor, who always seems to breathe life into the dullest of movies. Here he takes what could of been a much sillier movie and brings a lot of believability to his role and to the story. Even if it is about robots going nuts.
Michael Crichton directed this one, strange that he didn’t write it as a book first, cause it is a great story. A little ahead of it’s time which might explain it’s poor performance with the critics and at the box office.
Definitely worth checking out. Great Jerry Goldsmith score.
