There are some movies that fail to impress at the cinema, or in standard definition, but carry new authority in hi-def. This is just such a movie.
Alex Proyas fans (remember Dark City?) were doubtless hoping for more than the generic action flick I, Robot eventually becomes. But Proyas' trademark visual flair is well represented in the film's design, and is beautifully served by this transfer, arguably the best of the last year. Watching it – and hearing it, too (great lossless audio) – is a richly cinematic experience, and real compensation for the film's flaws.
