Yo, Robot


I, Robot is a 2004 American science fiction action film directed by Alex Proyas. The screenplay by Jeff Vintar and Akiva Goldsman is from a screen story by Vintar, based on his original screenplay Hardwired, and named after Isaac Asimov's 1950 short-story collection. The film stars Will Smith in the main role, Bridget Moynahan, Bruce Greenwood, James Cromwell, Chi McBride, and Alan Tudyk. In 2035, highly intelligent robots fill public service positions throughout the dystopian[3] world, operating under three rules to keep humans safe. Detective Del Spooner (Smith) investigates the alleged suicide of U.S. Robotics founder Alfred Lanning (Cromwell) and believes that a human-like robot called Sonny (Tudyk) murdered him.

In the year 2035, humanoid robots serve humanity, which is protected by the Three Laws of Robotics. Del Spooner, a homicide detective in the Chicago Police Department, has come to hate and distrust robots after a robot rescued him from a car crash while allowing a 12-year-old girl named Sarah Lloyd to drown based purely on cold logic and odds of survival. When Dr. Alfred Lanning, co-founder of U.S. Robotics (USR), falls to his death from his office window, a message he left behind requests Spooner be assigned to the case. The police declare the death a suicide, but Spooner is skeptical, and Lawrence Robertson, the CEO and other co-founder of USR, reluctantly allows him to investigate.


Accompanied by robopsychologist Dr. Susan Calvin, Spooner consults with USR's central artificial intelligence computer, VIKI (Virtual Interactive Kinetic Intelligence). They find out that the security footage from inside the office is corrupted, but the exterior footage shows no one entering or exiting since Lanning's death. However, Spooner points out that the window, which is made of security glass, could not have been broken by the elderly Lanning, and hypothesizes a robot was responsible and may still be in the lab. Suddenly, an NS-5 robot, USR's latest model, attacks them before being apprehended by the police. The robot, Sonny, is a specially built NS-5 with higher-grade materials as well as a secondary processing system that allows him to ignore the Three Laws. Sonny also appears to show emotion and claims to have "dreams". During Spooner's further investigations, he is attacked by a USR demolition robot and two truckloads of hostile NS-5 robots, but when he cannot produce evidence to support either attack, Spooner's boss, Lieutenant Bergin, removes him from active duty, considering him mentally unstable.


Suspecting that Robertson is behind everything, Spooner and Calvin sneak into the USR headquarters and interview Sonny. He draws a sketch of what he claims to be a recurring dream, showing a leader he believes to be Spooner standing atop a small hill before a large group of robots near a decaying bridge. Robertson orders Sonny to be destroyed, but Calvin secretly swaps him for an unused NS-5. Spooner finds the area in Sonny's drawing: a dry lake bed (formerly Lake Michigan), now used as a storage area for decommissioned robots. He also discovers NS-5 robots destroying the older models; at the same time, other NS-5s flood the streets of major US cities and begin enforcing a curfew and lockdown of the human population.


Spooner, Calvin, and Sonny fight the robots inside VIKI's core, and Spooner manages to destroy her by injecting the nanites that Sonny retrieved from Calvin's laboratory into her. All NS-5 robots immediately revert to their default programming and are subsequently decommissioned and put into storage. Spooner finally gets Sonny to confess that he killed Lanning, at Lanning's direction, pointing out that Sonny, as a machine, cannot legally commit "murder". Sonny, now seeking a new purpose, goes to Lake Michigan. As he stands atop a hill, all the decommissioned robots turn towards him, fulfilling the image in his dream.


The film I, Robot originally had no connection with Isaac Asimov's Robot series. It started with an original screenplay written in 1995 by Jeff Vintar, entitled Hardwired. The script was an Agatha Christie-inspired murder mystery that took place entirely at the scene of a crime, with one lone human character, FBI agent Del Spooner, investigating the killing of a reclusive scientist named Dr. Alfred Lanning, and interrogating a cast of machine suspects that included Sonny the robot, VIKI the supercomputer with a perpetual smiley face, the dead Dr. Lanning's hologram, plus several other examples of artificial intelligence.[5]


The final script used few of Asimov's characters and ideas, and those present were heavily adapted. The plot of the film is not derived from Asimov's work, in some cases explicitly opposing the core ideas. Many concepts are derivative of other works.[14][15] Sonny's attempt to hide from Spooner in a sea of identical robots is loosely based on a similar scene in "Little Lost Robot."[16] The positronic brains of Sonny and his fellow robots first appeared in the story "Catch That Rabbit." Sonny's struggle and desire to understand humanity resembles that of the robot protagonist in The Bicentennial Man. His dream about a man coming to liberate the NS-5s alludes to Robot Dreams and its main character Elvex. The premise of a robot, such as VIKI, putting the needs of humankind as a whole over that of individual humans can be found in "The Evitable Conflict," where supercomputers managing the global economy generalize the first law to refer to humankind as a whole. Asimov would further develop this idea in his Robot series as the Zeroth Law of Robotics: "A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm."[citation needed]


The premise of robots turning on their creators, originating in Karel Čapek's play R.U.R. and perpetuated in subsequent robot books and films, appears infrequently in Asimov's writings and differs from the "Zeroth Law". In fact, Asimov stated explicitly in interviews and in introductions to published collections of his robot stories that he entered the genre to protest what he called the Frankenstein complex, the tendency in popular culture to portray robots as menacing. His story lines often involved roboticists and robot characters battling societal anti-robot prejudices.[17][18]


Ante la entrada del despacho de Lanning, Susan le enseña a Spooner el funcionamiento del sistema informático V.I.K.I. (Fiona Hogan) y comprueban que nadie ha entrado ni salido del despacho desde la muerte del doctor. Pero, una vez dentro, son detenidos por un robot llamado Sonny (voz de Alan Tudyk), quien parece estar fuera de control y que se convierte, para Spooner, en el principal sospechoso del presunto asesinato de Lanning. El prototipo NS-5 es la última creación robótica de Lanning, activado accidentalmente por Spooner cuando investigaba su laboratorio. Pero este robot no obedece las órdenes de Spooner y, al ser capturado, insiste en que se dirijan a él con el nombre de Sonny. Al interrogar a Sonny, este le pregunta al detective Spooner qué significa la seña que le vio realizar antes a Spooner, cuando este le guiñó un ojo a su jefe, y el detective le responde que es una seña de confianza. Spooner va a investigar a la casa de Lanning en busca de evidencia, advirtiendo que la casa iba a ser demolida el día siguiente. Cuando se dispone a salir de ésta, la máquina demoledora que está fuera se activa y empieza a demoler la casa con Spooner dentro (ya que el horario de demolición se cambió a la noche de hoy). Spooner consigue salir justo a tiempo y logra salvar al gato que vivía ahí. Al día siguiente, mientras está en su oficina de la estación de policía, revisa las grabaciones de la conferencia de prensa de Lawrence Robertson (Bruce Greenwood), el fundador de U.S. Robotics, y descubre unas palabras que Lanning le replicó a Robertson: "Un día tendrán secretos, un día tendrán sueños". Esto deja a Spooner intrigado sobre el por qué Lanning había creado a un NS-5 con una mentalidad de humano.


Al saber del accidente, Susan va a visitar a Spooner (a pesar de que fue destituido de su cargo policíaco) y le revela sobre lo que había descubierto en Sonny. En ese momento, descubre cuál era la relación entre Lanning y Spooner, y la razón por la que este odia a los robots. Spooner le cuenta que un día durante una tormenta, estaba regresando del trabajo cuando vio a una niña de 12 años llamada Sarah, que iba acompañado de su padre en el coche. Acto seguido, el conductor de un camión de remolque perdió el control del mismo y embistió a los dos vehículos, lanzándolos al río. Un robot NS-4 (modelo anterior del NS-5) que pasaba por el lugar vio el accidente y saltó al agua, pero aunque Spooner le ordenó al robot que salvara a Sarah primero, este le salva a él queriendo que ocurra lo contrario. "Un humano lo hubiera entendido", razona Spooner.


Para evitar complicaciones, se decide desactivar a Sonny inyectando nanobots en su cerebro positrónico, pero Susan sabe que el robot es importante, así que finge su destrucción, reemplazándolo con un modelo NS-5 sin procesar. Posteriormente, antes de esto, Sonny les revela que tiene la capacidad de soñar y que en sus sueños ve a Spooner parado ante miles de robots, como si fuera su salvador. Mientras tanto, usando un dibujo que Sonny hizo del sueño que tuvo, Spooner encuentra la locación exacta del sueño: el lago Míchigan, un terreno inhabitable que la empresa usa para almacenar viejos robots. A través de un holograma del Dr. Lanning, Spooner se entera de la revolución, Spooner pregunta: "La revolución de qué?" a lo que le contesta el holograma de Lanning: "Esa, detective, es la pregunta correcta", lo que supone que Spooner puede ser un robot creado por el mismo Lanning. Luego, es testigo de que cómo los NS-5 están destruyendo a los robots NS-4 más viejos y comienzan a atacarlo. Con ayuda de los NS-4 más viejos, aún afines a los humanos, Spooner consigue huir en su motocicleta y advierte a Susan sobre la rebelión de los robots, pero como ella se está bañando, su NS-5 apaga la contestadora del teléfono. De pronto, Susan se percata que su NS-5 ya no la obedece y le pide que se quede en su casa. Spooner llega justo a tiempo y la salva, tras lo cual, huyen al edificio de USR, mientras que los NS-5 comienzan a encarcelar a las personas en sus casas y declaran un toque de queda, tomando control de la ciudad. En la calle, varios humanos, al ver que sus NS-5 ya no les obedecen, empiezan una batalla para derrocarlos. Spooner y Susan ayudan a las personas y logran llegar a la torre de USR por un pasadizo subterráneo, donde encuentran a Sonny, quien les ayuda a llegar hasta arriba. Susan y el detective Spooner asumen que los NS-5 estaban destruyendo a los modelos viejos para proteger a los humanos (como manda la segunda ley) y creen que quien está detrás de todo es Robertson, pero al ir a confrontarlo, lo encuentran estrangulado en su oficina. 041b061a72
