This was definitely not a movie I was supposed to be watching for my age. That's the reason this movie is very faint in my memory. I have spent well over 4 hours, on and off, looking for this movie with no avail. This is all I remember (not sure if it's all accurate):

  • Movie had robots that some ended up hurt/dying
  • Think I remember cages being involved
  • I want to say the robots where part of a carnival show or something

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Almost certainly this is A.I. Artificial Intelligence.

The scene with the robots in cages is below.

    Valorum is really the DeepQA system of SciFi StackExchange. I wonder whether Yukito Kishiro's work was used as inspiration here? – David Tonhofer May 18 '19 at 12:55

    This is old? What comes to mind when I hear "old" is 80s movies, like "Flight of the Navigator". Now I feel old. – Tito Piezas III May 18 '19 at 14:36

  • Oh my god, thanks so much @valorum . Crazy how I only remembered the scary scene, but I'm not surprised, considering I was probably 8 or 9 at the time. This movie really stuck in my brain and I'm glad I can watch it again. Thanks for the help. – Evroy Grant May 25 '19 at 4:46
