I, Robot

I downloaded the trailer for the upcoming movie, I, Robot. Being based on the only Asimov book I've read, I thought the movie would be good. Instead the movie seems like a leave-your-brains-at-the-door summer action flick. They even changed the rules! YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE FRIKKIN' RULES!!

The three laws of robotics by Asimov:
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

The same in the movie:
1. They cannot hurt us.
2. They must do what we say.
3. They can protect themselves.

I rest my case.
