In the near future, cloning is now technically advanced, but human cloning is still illegal. Adam Gibson (Schwarzenegger) returns home after working with his friend Hank Morgan (Rapaport), only to find a clone of himself with his family. Before he has chance to find out the truth, he is attacked by a group who want him dead. Adam must escape and find out the truth from the creator of the clones, Michael Drucker (Goldwyn). Adam knows for sure he couldn't have been cloned, but isn't ready for what he's about to hear. Written by simon

A movie that deserved a more mainstream release
19 July 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty big flop when it came out, it's actually better than half of Arnie's movies, the storyline is very unique & has some credited actors, such as Michael Rapaport as his best friend, the movie is a little harder to understand than most Arnie movie's but makes perfect sense at the end, this is not a great movie & its certainly not a bad movie. There are a few similarities to "Total Recall", both sorta in the near future but at the same time they cover different issues, but the subject of Human Cloning is probably a little more realistic & actually is becoming an issue in the world now. If your an Arnie fan you should like this, even if your not a fan of the Big man you probably would appreciate this. A fairly decent movie that deserves a second viewing. 7 / 10
