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 Johnny Phoenix is a reference to the mythical bird that rises from the dead. See more »
When Gibson is bringing the 'lower intestines' up to Nu Organ in the red-and-white cooler, he takes off the lid to get his gun. However, during the shot where a female employee walks past and Gibson pauses, you can see that the lid has been replaced without Gibson touching it. The lid is removed again in the next shot.

Believe it or not, this is a movie to think about!
Surprisingly, this was an excellent movie and certainly one that extends beyond simply being in the action genre. The 6th Day grapples with the ethics behind cloning and the broad spectrum of implications cloning could have on our everyday lives. While yes, the movie near the end becomes pretty action-oriented, it is a very smart movie overall, and it certainly merits one's attention.
Don't let the concept of Schwarzenegger with guns make you think that this movie is brainless...you'll be grossly underestimating it.
