Top 10 Best Robot Movies of All Time

From the endearing to the menacing, from the helpers of humanity to the bringers of apocalypse, robot movies encompass a diverse array of characters and themes, each providing a unique flavor to the genre. Some films lead us to the edge of our seats, with high-octane battles between metal giants, while others tug at our heartstrings, portraying the tender bonds between humans and their synthetic companions. They may whisk us away to dystopian futures, where robots rule, or transport us to worlds where they are the beacons of hope against impending doom.
The Top Ten
1 Wall-E

I love this movie! It's one of the best animated movies of all time. Pixar is so awesome and creative. I love it.

My father is forty-one, and this is among his favorite movies.

It's one of my favorite Pixar movies. It's so beautiful!

2 Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Better than any Terminator and robot films yet, Terminator 2 proves how a robot is well worth for a film that makes viewers' hearts very happy for decades.

A classic. Best storyline and special effects during a time where none of those two existed.

Arnold Schwarzenegger! Great actor! Perfect for the film!

3 The Terminator

This movie should be #1, but I voted for Terminator 2 because, ya know, it was already up there and it is 95% as good as #1.

Why 30 should be #1? Because it is the same as RoboCop (1987).

Good movie but scary!

4 Robocop

Should be #1 because the 1987 is the masterpiece classic. Forget the remake because the 2014 sucks.

Words cannot describe how petrified I was after I saw the toxic waste man...

Should be 1st or 2nd, never 9th. These movies made the movies of today... and is my all-time best movie ever, and T2.

5 A.I. - Artificial Intelligence

This is the best robot movie. Come on, think about it.

This is the best movie I've ever seen.

It is a very sad movie. I loved it.

6 Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
7 Transformers

Why is this at the bottom? Why is the decent sequel at #2 but this great, fun-filled film down here? I mean, come on, even that crappy movie Robots beat it!

Agree that this franchise should be among the best... long live Transformers!

There's more to them than meets the eye.

8 I, Robot

Truly awesome movie with a great storyline and superb visual effects. Will Smith and Bridget Moynahan did a great job. They should make a sequel.

I really love this film! Sonny is a great character. I agree that there should be a sequel.

Sonny is a really nice person, Susan Calvin is smart, and Spooner is so funny!

9 The Iron Giant

He wants to be Superman! How can you NOT love this guy?! Never seen it, nor am I a fan of Superman or even DC, but a robot who wants to be Superman is just too awesome to not be on the list!

10 Short Circuit

This movie is so cute! I love the little robot voice!

If you've seen it, you would say it's the best.

The movie has a cute theme.

The Contenders
11 Terminator 3 - Rise of the Machines

Best robot movie ever... Amazing Arnold...

12 Real Steel

The emotion in this movie is great. Worth being in a Top 10.

Awesome, that's why I love Transformers too!

Contains best fights (must watch).

13 Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

Not really a robot movie, but the best in the Star Wars franchise.

How is this not number 1? Empire is awesome.

14 Forbidden Planet

I can't believe my eyes. This one isn't on the list yet. We're talking about "all-time" movies. This is a classic. This fifties sci-fi has Robby the Robot in it, who was used afterward in other movies. He was even used in a '70s episode of "Columbo". Not to mention all the toys that were made and sold of this robot. A classic like that has to be in the top 3 for sure, if you ask me.

15 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

I think it should be in first place because it's amazing, and the graphics and the battles between the Autobots and Decepticons are awesome.

Such a hard decision between this and I, Robot.

16 Star Trek: Generations
17 Blade Runner

A truly great film. A more subtle robot movie than others on this list, which might be why it is ranking so low?

Best movie ever.

18 9

Why is number 9 in the tenth place?

19 Robots

This movie isn't the best, but I liked this movie when I was little. I still sort of like it.

This is one of the greatest films I have ever seen.

Best kids movie ever!

20 Big Hero 6

I really enjoyed this movie. It should be ranked higher.

Why is this below Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?!

21 Transformers: Dark of the Moon

This was actually a decent Transformers movie.

22 Ex Machina

This movie is so amazing and well-structured! I saw it in theaters the other day and fell in love with it!

23 Enthiran (Robot)

Best of Indian cinema.

24 Pacific Rim

This is my favorite movie. Yes, I'm not a huge fan of classics, with the exception of a few like Alien or Jurassic Park, but this movie is just awesome. What is cooler than giant robots fighting giant monsters?

I honestly thought it was better than Real Steel. In Real Steel, they made robots for entertainment, but in Pacific Rim, they were actually helpful by stopping aliens.

Watched ten times. Never felt bored with this movie. Love it all the way. Recommended for everyone who loves robot movies.
