A Fairytale,a sad trip where fantasy and sci fi came together.Spielberg play with both in an emocional, touching way, almost using horror tools. There's a sinister side in the film its hiding behind the DavidĀ“s world.
The process of changing color in the cinematography is beautiful.
It involves the Kubrick death that hurt too.I know if he could finish the film it will be more serious but this is destiny his soul will live in it forever

A tough movie to review. I liked the story of David living with his family and all the conflicts and touching scenes and also the social criticism - and most of the scenes with David and Gigolo Joe also had lots of appeal. I really have to praise Haley Joel Osment's acting - also loved Jude Law.

The effects were great, all the robots looked amazing. spoiler

But though some scenes were really imaginative and visually amazing, the movie didn't really seem to work as a whole for me. The ending was somehow visually fascinating and also touching and interesting if looked at seperately... but for me it didn't work with the rest of the movie. I also didn't like the idea of Dr. Know that much and the fairy thing became a little too much. Jude Law was great, but a little less of his sometimes quite strange dialog might have sufficed. Even the scene with Prof. Hobby could have been a little better.

All in all, great topic, amazing visual style, great acting and some wonderful ideas. I just think these elements could have been combined in a different way to create a better movie.

For the last half hour or so, I felt an increasing urge to punch Spielberg. Or Kubrick. Whichever.

I don't understand how crap movies have 8 in IMDB and this has only 7. It should have at least 7.5.

Very touching movie.

The end is really good. It's not just a 'happy end'. It brings the whole subject of the movie to a higher ground.

Don't like the robots/aliens though. And a lot of scenes are like stichted up together. All on their own there are some really good ideas in it but all together they don't seem to fit as a whole.
Could have been a masterpiece, but as it is its already some of the best movies of the 00's

Sad, too long, dreamlike. A divisive and almost great movie.

Spielberg takes over from Kubrick and manages to play to both their weaknesses. It's unusually uninvolving and detached (Kubrick) and manages to tack on an additional "feel-good" (i.e. sappy) ending (Spielberg). Regardless, the Pinocchio themes are well exploited and eerie, and the whole production is superbly well done technically.

Interesting movie with a spectacular performance by Osments but overall too many changes in flow/story that just didn't click for me.

So I assume the child eventually grows up and becomes Mark Wahlberg

I agree that the ending was a bit of a turnoff dragging the film down. Still, it's imaginative and worth watching once.

The end kills this, should have ended at Coney Island
