Storyline

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 simon

Multiplicity meets Total Recall
25 March 2001 | by npelSee all my reviews

This movie felt like a combination of Michael Keaton's 1996 clone comedy, Multiplicity and Schwarzenegger's own Total Recall. Schwarzenegger is a helicopter pilot who after signing a big chartering contract with a wealthy tycoon, returns home on the night of his birthday and discovers that he's already home enjoying his birthday cake. Through the rest of the film, Arney is running from the bad guys who are trying to kill him for seeing his double and trying to learn why he has been cloned. I didn't mind this film and I actually found myself chuckling at Arnold's remarks after each kill. The dialog between the two Schwarzenegger's was kind of tacky but the special effects and action sequences make up for that. I wonder how much World Wrestling Federation owner Vince McMahon paid out to have his new XFL football league appear in the film?
