The 6th Day

  • I hope this gets me a role in Scary Movie 2...

Set about 50 years into the future, the film tackles the issue of cloning and much more besides. Our hero is a helicopter pilot who is mistakenly cloned by a company with a monopoly on the cloning technology. Problem is, cloning humans is against the law, so one of the two identical people has to be quietly removed from society. However, our hero finds the idea of death unappealing, leading to high speed escapes and lots of thrills as he battles to stay free while trying to get his life back from the clone that has taken over his home and wife.

Ian Douglas: This was a difficult movie to rate. On the plus side, it deals with some fascinating and relevant topics, presenting both sides of the issues. On the negative side, it mixes the debate into a high-action flick, with less than stellar acting. It's almost as if the film is aiming for two completely different types of audience, and by doing so, may end up losing both. Throw in some really dubious ''cloning techniques'' and confused morality, and the result is a bit of a mess. It was interesting to see how a well-intentioned and loving scientist had his work corrupted by the young company owner, who came across a lot like the public image of Bill Gates. I left wondering how it would have been if they had cast Russel Crowe as the hero, and scaled down the over-the-top action sequences and bad science into something more believable. Worth seeing for the intellectual debate bits, imho.

Romeo Mabasa (25): Too fictitious, even kids won't believe it.
