Was it just me, or did the USR building look like the Shin-Ra building?

I also agree (I read this on CG a while ago) that the 'bad guy' was... borrowed... from System Shock.

That movie sucked donkey testicles.

I loved the books, but I hate watching a movie that I guess the ending within the first 15 min.

HAHA!

I Robot was entertaining enough.  It was a good enough summer "action" movie.

USR building did remind me of the Shinra building.  No running up floors and floors of steps though (I seem to choose that option everytime I play FFVII).

Never played System Shock, although my friend and I are quite interested in the playing System Shock 2.  So no clue on that.

Did anyone else think the casting role for the lead female was horrific?  I didn't like her at all in the movie.  Elizabeth Shue would have been perfection.

I expected the movie to be nothing but suck, particularly in regards to it's namesake material.  I was pleasantly surprised with how faithful to Asimov's work the film was.  Not a bad little movie.  Especially for a summer film based on some pretty heady sci-fi that's not readily adaptable to summer fare.

I enjoyed it - more than I was expecting to.  But yeah, VIKI was Shodan for all intents and purposes.

Yeah, but Shue is getting on up there in years - *I* personally think she's still quite hot, but if you're over 32, you better be an A-list star if you're going to be the female lead.

They DID run up the stairs in the Shin-Ra... I mean the USR building.  There was the part where the robot let Fresh Prince into the building, and they looked up the stairwell and the robot said how many thousands of stairs there were.  Then Fresh Prince said something about keeping that info to himself.

Then the scene cut to an outside view of the top of the Shin-Ra building, and they found that dead dude.

Hmmm... now that I think about it, that may have resembled the control room in that one ship.

Im thinking about how the office has those spikey things under the windows.  Something in FFVII had that.

running up those stairs must have been more like the Library level in Halo. slywink
