I, Robot is the revolutionary piece of literature, in which Isaac Asimov depicts the future world of robots. Later made into a film, the finest characters, Powell and Donovan, opens the gate to explore more about the unknown mysteries about robots.
Never watch the movie before reading the book. The book sparks the scene to make us imagine the picture, and it includes more detail from the book than the film. By reading only the book, our minds wouldn’t easily get duplicated by the filmmaker. Asimov envisioned the danger, but also people’s excitement about robotic technology. With the nine short stories, a true image of chaos, rebellion, and bitterness pops out. Powell and Donovan draw out how robots aren’t just machines ------ but independent minded.
Images can’t always show how Asimov resprings the mood and tone of Powell and Donovan. One of the most fascinating stories, “Robbie”, explains how home robots aren’t just tools ------ Yeah, never wrong ------ but obeys order of one’s death.
Asimov puts the real meat into the story, where his plot is always unpredictable. Any foreshadowing wouldn’t work for anyone because this is not a cliche book, where plots are always “cliche.” Just like Disney, the stories always end happy ever after, or that hero saves the world, that kind of things.
I don’t want to have too much details, which Asimov pushes the space to make us think, or create our own imagination. Coming to the ending point of the story, it was quite disappointing ------ sorry, no spoilers ------ I don’t know what Asimov drank that day, but he sure doesn’t sound like himself in the previous short stories. We can’t really see what he’s trying to call out.
Now, I,Robot has been a historical collection, which we readers know. The book concludes how Asimov’s messages are for the future generations. Nevertheless, people that watched the movie won’t know about what Asimov is trying to pass on to everyone. Will Smith, the main character of the film, can’t tell you personally ------ that’s impossible.
With the heat of excitement still on, the 2004 version I, Robot film still drags up today’s attention, where we have our own technological inventions.
Asimov paints up Donovan to show the legitimate message that we people should be aware, ultimately.
