Sweet futuristic bridge

I was watching AI, and I thought the bridge scene to rouge city was fantastic.

Which makes me wonder: Are bridges like this even feasible? I'm no bridge expert...but with a bridge this long and high, I didn't see any cables or anything to support the weight besides a few columns. Of course it's just a movie...but still...

Do you like these 3 bridges? Or are they too creepy (e.g. driving inside a mouth?)

In AI (Artificial Intelligence)

Remember in this movie, theses bridges are entrance to something like Lust City, so i think their designs are rather descriptive.

Creepy and ugly, architecture should be more abstract in its symbolism.
