Consensus: This offering from Arnold Schwarzenegger contains an intriguing, disturbing premise, but the film's execution is too routine and formulaic to make good use of it.

A clone itself, borrowing elements from Arnold's Total Recall plus a few ideas from Blade Runner and Face/Off, all of which are much better movies.

Randy White

A decent movie for teens, if they can endure it.

I suggest you don't waste your money on this one.
