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 title refers to the Hebrew Book of Genesis, wherein the first man Adam was brought to life on the 6th day of Creation. See more »
The memory recorder displays only visions, not thoughts. If it displayed thoughts, the villains would have known that the other Gibson was behind the clone in the helicopter/jet other than by the reflection in the glass. However, this doesn't necessarily mean the thoughts weren't recorded, only that they either chose not to display them or couldn't come up with a good way to display them. 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.
