The Best Robot & Android Movies

List Criteria: Movies must contain a robot or android character.

This list of the best robot movies includes a number of great films featuring robots, androids, gynoids, cyborgs and every other type of robot you can think of. We think we've included some of the best ones, but if you believe we've missed one, please, add it to the list. You can also vote for your favorites and re-rank this list of robot & android movies any way you like. Not surprisingly, many of the robot/android movies listed here are also considered among the best movies of all time.

The best robot movies of all time are often also considered some of the greatest sci-fi movies and the best action movies of all time, too. One excellent example is the 'Terminator' films: Both 1984's 'The Terminator' and 1991's 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' are epic movies that feature cutting-edge technology (and awesome special effects!)

As machines have advanced throughout human history, it has of course been inevitable that we would try to recreate ourselves. The necessary level of technology, however, wasn't reached until the 20th century, and it was not until the advent of filmmaking that we could truly see what a fully functional robot should be. One of the first and most famous robots was unquestionably "Maria" from the silent film "Metropolis." Since then, robot and android movies have been plentiful, capturing movie goers' collective imaginations.
