Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The way the robot attempts to interpret reality in a way consistent with its programming is pretty good.

Con: It's not clear what the robot has figured out at the end. It's going to fix the war by dismantling itself and mailing the parts back to the manufacturers?
