Of stars and egos

The one thing that I came back with from I, Robot was... Will Smith. In fact, the movie should have been I, Smith. I don't understand why a story inspired by Asimov should become another star ego trip. This isn't to say that I don't like the movie, or Will Smith. But it is just another action thriller which pretends to have higher aspirations. Smith is capable of more than such routine fare.
