A.I. - super-toys last all summer long

by JasonN
What is it about? Initially, this edit was started to develop a better ending for the film - at the same time, the

faneditor discovered the original short story by Brian Aldiss that provided the basis of the film. So he decided to make

the film more akin to the themes of the short story, in addition to changing the ending to better fit those concepts.

Major Edits/Changes
Change/Cuts: David’s Family & Monica aka “Mommy”
In the original story, the Swinton family really didn’t give a damn about David: he was merely an object, a “toy” for

them play with and use. The Monica character was more conflicted about her feelings for David than Henry (because David

really did “love” his Mommy), but in the end, she continued to view him as an artificial mecha (never as a real child).

For this Edit, I decided to remove any additional scenes/subplots that focused the story more on the Henry, Monica, and

Martin characters instead of David: this was because I felt that once David finally “awakened” in the story (i.e., when

he is imprinted onto Monica and became a true conscious entity), the film’s focus should be entirely on him and his quest

to become real.

Cuts: “Pool Party” + “Letters to Mommy” Scenes
The Pool Scene was one of the major scenes that I hated from the original film, both from a narrative point of view

(Martin hates David… OK, we get it now…) and from a logical perspective (so spinach can harm David, but not water?

WTF?!). With the scene gone, the ending that I developed for the Edit (David “dying” in the ocean) is now plausible and

understandable.
The Letters Scene I was a little more hesitant on removing, because it was a scene from the original short story.

However, Spielberg completely missed the point of it: in the short story, the focus of the scene was on David and his

attempts to understand these feelings he had toward Monica; the film, however, he pulled the viewers focus entirely on

Monica and her “dilemma” on what to do with David (also, the scene no longer had any context due to the Pool Party scene

being removed).

Changes/Cuts: Gigolo Joe
I had a several problems with “Murderer” subplot with Gigolo Joe:
1. the idea that Joe could kill a human breaks one of the 3 major (abit, fictional) Laws of Robotics: “A robot may not

injure or harm a human being”.
2. only David, as the highest form of mecha, should be considered capable of REAL human tendencies (including violence).
So in my version, the murder subplot is cut entirely and Joe is an advanced, but illegal prostitute mecha (and just like

his human counterparts, his “services” are against the law).

Cuts: No Philosopher Robots
I prefer it when a film’s philosophical concepts are presented either informally or as subtext - NOT when characters on

screen go jabbering on and on about Humanity’s prejudices/intolerances and random crap like humans’ “Rite of Blood”.

Also, I felt that only David (and to a lesser extent, Gigolo Joe) should be advanced enough to contemplate

intellectual/emotive human concepts.

Cuts: Professor Hobby
A few minor cuts which dealt with Hobby and his son who had died (and who was the basis for David’s design) - the notion

is still there, except now it’s just briefly implied (and doesn’t beat the viewers over the head with scenes of Hobby

looking at his dead son’s photo).

Changes/Cuts: The Ending
This was the major reason I decided to do this edit, as I absolutely and completely HATE the ending of the original film.

For me, having David finally realize the truth of his nature - that he can never be a real human, that he is a mere

‘product’ for humans to use and discard, and most importantly of all, that he will never gain the love of the one being

that he loves above everything else (his “Mommy”) - and then choose to end his existence rather than continue to live a

never-ending lie, THAT is what I believed the end of A.I. should have been.
So we have the following changes:
- No jump to 2000 years into the future
- No aliens/robots (yes, they’re technically supposed to be advanced robots, but come on Spielberg, get more original

with their design!)
- No meeting the (fake) Blue Fairy
- No 1 day together with (fake) “Mommy”
- No going to sleep/being able to “dream”
So, the edit ends with David falling into the dark depths of the ocean and closing his eyes (the Eye Sequence was

accomplished by cutting one of the ending scenes of the original film, importing the video into Bauhaus Mirage, and

reversing the frames of the film)

Change: End Credits
For this, I switched the color scheme of the credits from “white text on a black background” to a “black text on a white

background” scheme - the music for the credits was also changed from John William’s score to a song of my choice (which

is listed at the start of the end credits).

Additional Comment:

Artificial Intelligence is one of the first experiences in my life where I walked out of the cinema HATING the film that

I had just seen.

The strange thing is, it wasn’t like I hated everything about the film; there were many things about it that I found

interesting and engaging (the concept of robots becoming human, the fairy tale aspect of the story, the archetypal “odd”

characters, the questionable “morality” of the narrative). However, there were an equal amount of things in the movie

that I totally despised and ruined whatever positive aspects that I had observed (especially the end, which to this day

continues to infuriate me more than any other film ending).

Initially, this edit was started to develop a better ending for the film - at the same time, I discovered the original

short story by Brian Aldiss that provided the basis of the film (which I totally fell in love with). So I decided to make

the film more akin to the themes of the short story, in addition to changing the ending to better fit those concepts.
