A body can be replicated but does that also mean the soul is also? For a Web Series this was really impressive because it doesn't look amateurish at all, it looks like it could of been a real TV series. This was done on a low budget but it really looks almost like big budget because everyone put in extra effort and it really shows, once again a prime example of budget despite size used the right way and for the right reasons.

The whole series was done on digital green screen. A process that was utilized from many films like "Tron", "Sin City", "A Scanner Darkly" and many others, this show is one of the processes best examples. The visuals are just beautiful all of the enviorments were sketch art almost similar with the kinda of art from Frank Millar's "Sin City", the film looks and plays out like a live action graphic novel. But most importantly gives the film a fascinating futuristic world, which is a mix of decades from the future, 1920's-30's America, to our contemporary present. This all the more reinforces the surreal feel of the world, the black and white sketch visuals gives it both the noir sensibility where there could be danger hidden within the shadows. But just simply the feel that your in a dream, which reinforces the feeling of things being not what they seem. I also just simply like how it handles the cloning premise which has been done many times but here it feels plausible.

I really like the story it's like something out of Philp K. Dick lore. Sci-Fi and Mystery always make a beautiful combination because of the simple fact it's in a futuristic setting. Even though the principles of detective solving are still intact the new enviorment creates a sense of disorientation but also heightens the sense of mystery because it means new rules to discover and unexplored depths to this fascinating unfamiliar world.

It's true it's complicated but easy to follow, it's not overcomplicated to the point where your completely lost or things just get plain messy. Like any good/great mystery it's simply one thing leading to another, and you kept one foot in the dark despite certain clues leading you closer to an answer/s.

The action is solid, from the shoot outs to fist a cuffs they looked well choreographed. Even the music is great giving it both an old fashioned detective vibe but also a moody and somber sensibility in some places.

I also liked the characters, it's true you don't know them too deeply but that's part of the point. These characters have a shade of mystique over them, and even these characters are aware of that because throughout the film their not entirely sure who they are as well as their clone counterparts and their radically different persona's.

I really liked the actor that played Aidan he had both the look but most importantly the right voice which makes him fit like a glove for this series(wouldn't't mind if he played Max Payne if someone decides to make a reboot film let alone good one). He's pretty much the typical detective going though the motions but he's sympathetic because as he gets closer to the case he gets more confused about his identity.

Morgan Riley is just as interesting, the actress playing her I think is cute. She's at times comes off as a bit detached but does have a slight vulnerability to her whether she knows she has it or not, as the case escalates she exercises certain emotions she never knew she was capable of.

The film really gets into issues of free will, individualism, corporate privatization and monopolization. But also philosophical issues of identity. Aidan and Morgan's dilemma is the same as ours everyday, even we don't know ourselves fully because as time goes on we always change whether their big or small ones, people are always capable of becoming more in persona or lifestyle. This makes us the same but at the same time different all together.

You think you see yourself in the mirror, look deeper.

Rating: 4 stars
