It is an Awsome movie (the 1971, I don't know if the remake will even be watchable, most are not, with the exception of Carpenters The Thing which was better than the Walking Carrot in the origional ((the original was good but the Polymorph was a better thing))

@ Onoffonoffon: "Couldn't they just unplug it?"
A good question. No, they could not because Colossus is located deep beneath a mountain with multiple redundant power sources (it was conceived as a weapon of the Cold War, so it was built to withstand nuclear attack). If humans made any attempt to disable it, Colossus would respond by threatening to destroy a randomly selected city with the weapons that were in its control.
It`s an awesome book. I highly recommend it if you haven`t read it.
One correction: The author`s name is D.F. Jones, not D.E. Jones, as I had it in an earlier post.
