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
The Sim-Pal slogan is "A Sim-Pal that's fun to be with!", a derivation from "The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series by Douglas Adams. There, the corporation that created robots with "Genuine People Personalities" had the slogan "Your plastic pal that's fun to be with!". See more »

It's an improvement over End of Days and Collateral Damage
This was the least successful movie box office wise out of the three films listed above. But that doesn't mean it's the worst film. It's a lot better than the other two films I mentioned, and the closest thing he made to being a good movie until Terminator 3 came out. The movie is passable entertainment, but nothing more. There is no intelligence in the story to engage your brain, or give suspense. Arnold gives a pretty bad performance in this movie, but he makes up for it with blowing stuff up in the action scenes. The special effects are good, and some decent performances by Tony Goldwin and Robert Duvall make the movie watchable. At least it's better than the other crappy films Arnold made in the last couple of years.
