Although built-in security programmes make it theoretically impossible for robots to do harm to a human, the world is left to wonder if they are as safe around their electronic servants as previously thought. Weta Digital’s two key sequences are the climactic car chase sequence in which Will Smith’s character is attacked by swarms of robots, and the creation of the futuristic Chicago skyline. I, Robot was nominated for the 2004 Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.
I, Robot has the most complex and sophisticated CG work in movie history.
