Bicentennial Man (mini-review++)

r17

Review process: two scores assigned: (I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me)

(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

The mini-review:

Bicentennial Man

acting 7

directing 6

writing 6

effects 7

editing 7

SW score: 33

2.5 out of 5 octopi

++ Another in the seemingly endless string of movies about robots/androids/whatever other non-human creature who becomes more human than most of the people around him. It’s a tale as old as time. Besides the aesthetically ludicrous robot costume design, the film does not break any new ground and treads existing territory with no life. Williams does what he can with the lines but his portrayal is in line with the rest of this movie’s numb delivery.
