Julius and Vincent Benedict are the results of an experiment that would allow for the perfect child. Julius was planned and grows to athletic proportions. Vincent is an accident and is somewhat smaller in stature. Vincent is placed in an orphanage while Julius is taken to a South Seas island and raised by philosophers. Vincent becomes the ultimate lowlife and is about to be killed by loan sharks when Julius discovers that he has a brother and begins looking for him.Written by

The film makes two references to Arnold Schwarzenegger's earlier film The Terminator (1984): Julius says "I'll be back!" when he threatens Traven, plus Julius and Vincent wear matching sunglasses, which are reminiscent of the sunglasses Arnold wore in The Terminator (1984), and in its sequels. In the The Terminator films, Arnold's Terminator character's catchphrase is "I'll be back!" and The Terminator wears sunglasses. See more »
Bauerfield International Airport would be the only Airport near the island. "27 miles" from the location mentioned is not possible. It would be an estimated 200 miles minimum. See more »
I don't know what the problem is, but I'm sure it can be solved without resorting to violence.

The Title "Twins" appears with two "i" (one of them is smaller than the other one) referring to the appearance of the two main characters. See more »
I don't do IMDb reviews. I drop by all the time, and when I've just sen a movie, I often drop by with my prediction...and though I say so myself, I've got pretty good over the years. I guess 6.3, it's a 6.5; I guess 7.2, it's a 7.0.
Just watched Twins for the first time in 20 years and came in with my prediction of 8.1 and what the...? 5.9? You have got to be kidding! Of its genre, Twins is damn near perfect. Great idea, brilliantly executed. An excellent script, with great one-liners and terrific plot twists along the way. And above all, one of the best buddy-twosomes outside of 48 Hours. How this ended up under 6 just defeats me.
I was so amazed - and indignant - that I ended up doing my first IMDb review in years, in the hopes it might ease the score just a bit closer to where it deserves to be - which is 8, minimum. If you don't enjoy Twins, check for a pulse.
