    I, Robot is the worst adaptation. All the screenplay writers kept from the book was the title.

    I don't see Ron Howard as being as good as the magical negro Morgan Freeman.

    Definitely interesting casting, and it paid off.

    Another Will Smith adaptation I Am Legend, might join that one. World War Z had very little to do with the book as well, since the book was just a series of vignettes from around the world at different points on the timeline during and after the zombie war.

    It's a kick ass movie. I went back and watched it a second time when it was in it's original theatrical run.

    I've never read the book.
