BICENTENNIAL MAN (Theatrical Release USA 1999)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

Bicentennial Man—thought-provoking, exceptionally creative, fresh—entertains deeply. The movie asks an important question about what makes a human, human. Who and what deserves ‘rights’? The movie concludes with an answer which provides good after-viewing discussion. Terrific Robin Williams film who acts with Sam Neil, Wendy Crewson, Embeth Davidts, Oliver Platt, and Kirsten Warren. There are some unnecessary sexual scenes, but, for the most part, the film earns its watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. The movie provokes thought about the differences between humans, machines, freedom to act, and rights of life. The film is completely entertaining and more than earns its watch.
