I just saw I, Robot a couple days ago and couldn't help at notice how similar the story is to Terminator. Machines invented by humans, artificial intelligence that becomes totally self aware and finally, that AI takes everyting over and a battle begins.
Theres probably not too much that can be said in comparing these two films, but oh well, I havent been to this forum for a while and thought I should at least say "something."
I must say that one thing that suprised me about I, Robot was the CG. I actually put seeing this film off because I had an idea that it would just be a load of CG crap, I was right, but to my suprise it actually didn't bother me. A couple of scenes did but for the most part it was ok. If the CG (and we all know its going to be almost nothing but CG) in T4 is done in this way it could just be ok. But we all know Mostow, and we all know why we hate him, yea.......T4 will suck.
Cyborg: A person (or rarely, an animal) with bionic and/or cybernetic replacement parts. Often the replacements will have capabilities that the original biological components did not (super strength, telescopic vision, etc.). http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...q=define:cyborg
Considering the definition of the word and the fact that Will Smith's character had "cybernetic replacement parts" with "super strength" then I suppose the concept for I, Robot is incredibly similar to that of the Terminator films.
A cyborg joins force with a small group of human beings and together they battle an evil cybernetic/mechanical organism(s) that is threatening human existence.
They basically ripped off Arnie's character in I, Robot.
ya that was so stupid when i found out will smith was a cyborg, i forgot the ending i saw it some time ago. i mean, there was something regarding a robot seeing a sight of a bridge or sumthin gosh my memory sucks
Actually I was referring more to the manner in which Will Smith's character was influenced by Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in the Terminator films and not whether or not the film was an original idea nor whether or not James Cameron "used Asimov's work."
ya it sucked i brought the soundtrack really couldnt listen2much of it. beltrami said he did try 2 fit in the t-theme into the movie but there was no scene in which he could.. A PART OF THAT REASON MIGHT BE COZ TERMINATOR 3 WAS NOT "TERMINATOR" STUFF
With no successful "robot" movie for 12 years (1991, T2) and flops like Bicentennial Man it was no wonder that I, Robot had not been made sooner. Obviously T3 must have have offered some much needed push or incentive to make the studios and executives willing to gamble their money.

^ biccentanial man was a really stupid film. i just couldnt imagine Robin WIlliams as a robot at the first place. but if u look neutrally, terminator 3 was no a big flop when is came 2 money-making.420 million, it is good for a sequel. but for a terminator movie, all we needed was good pllot and we couldnt get it
