  • A borrowed idea -- hello, "Blade Runner," hi there, "Matrix" -- but an idea nonetheless. show more

  • The movie is more about how many things Michael Bay can smash up -- lots. That might not be a talent most people respect, but it gets through to people anyway, and here Bay does it exceptionally well. show more

  • This frenzied fiesta of firepower is about cloning people for spare parts, but the movie is a clone itself. Possessing no new ideas, it reworks and borrows from such films as "Blade Runner," "The Matrix" and "Logan's Run." show more

    Fast paced action packed thriller with a twist on the old movie Logan\'s Run. These are not people, these are products, clones, so that thier rich counter parts can live forever. Sean Bean plays his usual part and does it very well. I watched it twice and wil propably watch it again before I send the DVD back. Hold onto your chair cause this one can blow you away with it\'s high speed chases shoot em up and so forth. Not to mention the innocents of just not knowing. This action movie actually has a bit of a plot and it works. Michael Bay is a master at this kind of movie.
