What Will's Doing: Shifting from aliens to robots. Smith plays a wary, semi-bionic, leather-duster-clad detective. He investigates a docile-faced servant robot, Sonny, that achieves sentience and is no longer super psyched about his people’s programmed slavery. Eventually, after some dope fights, Will and Sonny bond, then team together to bring down the central hive brain that determines human beings must be saved by a forceful robot takeover—as artificially intelligent super-computers are known to do. The film features some poignant meditations on what being alive really means. And Smith carries the flick with weary persistence and salty wit as he defends Earth from non-human hordes for the fourth time.
