Sonny – I, Robot
I, Robot is a 2004 dystopian science fiction movie inspired by Isaac Asimov’s short-story collection with the same name. As you already know if you are a fan of Asimov’s writings, his science fiction worlds are magical, surprising and innovative, and Sonny, the NS-5 modified robot in the film is definitely one of the greatest assets of the short-story collection and of the movie. Sonny’s uniqueness comes from the fact that he is aware of the Three Laws of Robotics but he can choose not to obey them, and is therefore capable of murder. While robots with a mind of their own scare us, it is always fun to see them in movies.
Modern days offer and the wonderful new technologies used in the movie industry will surely offer us the chance to fall in love with new and exciting robots but the old ones, the pioneers of their kind will forever remain in the audience’s heart and movie collections.
