If you open your mind and are paying attention to the world around us, then AI will hit your mind and heart. On one hand, this is a beautiful modern fairy tale. On the other hand, AI is a very serious and important warning message, urging us to push the boundary of technology with responsibility and foresight. When I first saw this movie in 2001, I thought it was entertaining, but had its flaws.
13 years later, I felt an urge to watch it again as AI and robotics are really starting to take off. So instead of rating this movie on rather shallower movie-making technicalities, I'd rather rate it on relevance for culture and society in this decade; on relevance to help us make better decisions that will impact our next decade and generations. Within that lens, AI deserves 6 out of 5 stars. Five stars for the vision, the sixth star for the heart.
