Surrogates is just an entertaining science fiction film that is there to please movie-goers and not win any awards. This is good science fiction but I have to say Avatar and District 9 were much better. But still I like to enjoy Bruce Willis.
This is about how technology invaded human life. Most humans have their own surrogates which are robots they control and inhabit with their minds. Things begin to get out of hand when a weapon is used that will not only kill the robot, but the human occupying it. What will happen? The acting is pretty good.
I like Bruce Willis in anything so it's not surprising that I like this. James Cromwell is pretty good too.
Overall, this is a cool science fiction movie. I was entertained most of the time. I rate this film 8/10.
