REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  2 of 5 [Rate It]

3 of 4

“..thoughtful, grounded, more interested in questions of free will and emotions versus technology than it is in goofy satire..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
4 of 5

“..taking the original and successfully transplanting it into an ambitious new world, Jose Padilha's english-language debut is an exciting, pacey and thoughtful sci-fi actioner..”
by Richard Jordan [Total Film]
“..more meticulous script and, naturally, flashier effects, but it lacks the original's wit and subversive slipperiness..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“..like its shell of an enforcer, this Robo-redo is slick but tedious, flat-footed and humorless..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2.5 of 4

“..it doesn't seem quite as truly, organically alive as it once did. But it sure looks sleek, and moves pretty fast. And if you don't think too much, it almost feels like the real thing..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
3.5 of 4

“..is a movie with a lot on its mind..”
by Soren Andersen [NY Times]
