  • Surrogates, which borrows tone and content freely from "I, Robot," is all windup and no pitch. show more

  • The filmmakers were too busy throwing together potential blockbuster material to notice all the loose ends and gaping holes in logic. Which may, ultimately, explain why Willis looks so confused throughout. Maybe he, too, is straining to locate some intelligence amid all the machinery. show more

  • A mechanical sci-fi'er absent of logic or emotions. It functions as an expensive place-filler on the Disney release schedule and, as such, will be welcomed by only the least discriminating thriller fans. show more

    Not as good and "Sixth Sense" but fairly well done. As with all SciFi movies there must be the suspension of reality and as long as the story fills in all the plot holes it works. This movie pushed the envelope at little too far. Too many holes in the concept. Worth a veiwing, just don't buy it. You probably won't want to watch it again.

    Clearly Outstanding. Great acting and a compelling script. Apparently most people 'just don't get it'. This is Not your typical Action Movie, nor just a Sci-Fi Thriller ... It does have a message and it is delivered in a very compelling fashion! The experience is enhanced if you like Bruce Willis (who, once again proves he Can Act) as well as Radha Mitchell, Rosamund Pike, James Cromwell, and Ving Rhames- some of my favorites.

    Mark and I saw this and we thought it was pretty good. Not great but worth seeing. Not one of B W best movies but it was okay. We do not regret seeing this one at all.
