Exclusive: Top Ten Coolest Robots From Movies (Video)!

02.14.2014

With ROBOCOP hitting theaters this week, we decided to take a look back at some of our other favorite movie robots, counting down our top 10 faves. There's a lot of cool 'bots out there, so it was no easy task, especially when you start getting into android and cyborg territory, but ultimately we boiled it down to some old-school and new-school favorites, including CGI, actors, and real working robots in both film and television.

Robots have long been a staple of cinema and continue to be a mainstay, representing all the different era's and progressing in design and function as our own technology progresses. We'll be getting even more droids in the coming years, particularly with Paul Bettany's Vision in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON and likely a long list of new 'bots in J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: EPISODE VII.

Check out our roster below and let us know who your favorites are in the strikebacks!

If replicants were robots, there would be no need for them to undergo an empathy test to distinguish them from humans. Roy Batty is not a robot.

Good list!

Though like others surprised there's no Roy Batty...

I would also suggest Gerty from Moon, the 'Good Robot Us's' from Bogus Journey, Tick-Tock from Return to Oz, and, although it was a terrible movie, I loved the design of the robot in Judge Dredd.

Hope the Sentinals in X-men DOFP will be good...

Great list here. Both Jude Law and Haley Joel Osment were great in A.I. Alan Tudyk's performance in I, Robot gets overlooked a bunch but I think it was quite impressive as well. He's a TV robot more than a movie robot, but Bender is great. "Shut up Baby, I know it!"

okay okay

come on guys. BOTH optimus' are cool. The old one is cool because he uses tactical thinking to defeat the decepticons and the new one is cool because he is freaking skilled at combat. the ONLY reason i love the transformers movies is BECAUSE of the crazy robot fights. you think i watch it for the dialogue, acting, or the boobs? NO i just want to see ROBOTS DESTROY EACH OTHER.

Animated Optimus would take a oil leak all over Bay's. I take animated movie over any of the live action ones any day of the week.

Pretty good list.

Great list! I really have no idea why hardcore movie fans people like the Transformers movies, though. I have no loyalty to the original cartoon or anything- I just think the movies are terrible.
