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 »
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.
