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 name was changed from "The Sixth Day" to "The 6th Day" to avoid confusion with The Sixth Sense (1999). See more »
Simpal Cindy's eyes close when Gibson tells her to sleep. When he picks her up and brings her to the house, there is a shot of her eyes opened, but it's possible that the eye servos don't lock closed in sleep mode. Sloppy design, but not a goof. See more »
A good movie for DVD with terrific 5.1sound and sharp visuals, this was another entertaining Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle. The action isn't overdone and the humor is subtle.
"To clone human beings or not to clone" is the question here and the topic of the movie. For one of the few times, Hollywood actually gives the right message. Wow, shocking to see Hollywood be on the side of morality for once. No wonder some Left Wing fanatics didn't like the story.
The film, however, succumbs at the ending action to the typical "Rambo mentality," where the good guys couldn't hit if they threw an H-bomb at them. However, most of the action scenes in the film are well-done with a lot more credibility.
Arnold's thick accent doesn't credibility to his characters nor those around him in this story. Sometimes he can get away with it, but not in this movie. The villains in here are all effectively portrayed.
Generally, a fun movie....and it looks great on Blu-Ray!
