Ai Film Analysis
Artificial Intelligence is a film about an advanced robotic boy who is the adopted “son” of human parents. It raises the question: can a human genuinely love something that is non-human? The boy longs to become “real” so that he can regain the love of his human mother. 2.
A major “conundrum”, as mentioned in the opening scene of the film, is one that poses a question: if a robot can genuinely love its owner, what responsibility does the human have towards the machine?
Is it real ove if it is simulated and mechanical? 3. From a Biblical standpoint, mankind was created by God to bring him glory and enjoyment, “That in all things, God may be glorified (1 Peter 4:11). ” Additionally, God could have made humans as virtual robots, “programming” them so they absolutely would not sin. However, God chose give mankind the choice of whether or not to obey Him. As it turns out, humans chose to sin.
B. As a “person”, David seems to be quite realistic not only in his appearance but in his mannerisms and genuine emotion.
Yet still there is something unsettling about the idea of this human-like machine expressing love. I cannot help but feel a sort of empathy for David and his situation. For example, the scene in the woods, when all the other “mecha” come out and begin assembling themselves with spare parts – the pity and heartbreak I felt for David as he watched those mechanical “creatures” and realized that he was of their kind – was quite powerful.

Between the characters of David and Martin, David is certainly the more likeable one, as he seems to be more “human”.
Martin sees him as a cool toy to play with, but when he sees that his mom is intrigued with this fancy new “mecha,” he sets out to make David seem like a threat, and as a result makes himself the antagonist. D. Monica Abandons David 1 . After thoroughly thinking through the story Pinocchio, David begins to hope that he, too, can turn into a real boy and vows to do anything he can to achieve that.
After his mother leaves him to fend for himself, David spends the rest of the movie searching for the Blue Fairy, a character from Pinocchio.
He wants to become a real boy so that his mommy will love him again. 2. As humans, we always have to have a hope in something, in “being” something. Otherwise life isn’t worth living. We hope for and long for acceptance of who we “are”, as that is what keeps us going.
As a result, many lives are spent in search of acceptance, fulfillment, and love. 3. God accepts us and loves us simply because He is love and we are His creation. God does not love us because we are lovable or because we deserve His love.
If anything, the pposite is true. The state of mankind since the fall is one of rebellion and disobedience, which, considering God’s perfect nature, makes the prospect of God loving us because of what we do, false.
His love is sacrificial. He demonstrates this sacrificial love by sending His Son to the cross to pay the penalty for our sin (1 John 4:10), by forgiving us of our rebellion against Him, and by sending His Holy Spirit to dwell within us, enabling us to love as He loves. He did this in spite of the fact that we
