When the antisocial and lonely medical student Adam Schmidt receives a mysterious e-mail inviting him to participate of a unique medical research, he accepts the job opportunity and travels to an isolated snowing area to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. He meets Dr. Franklin Vick that kills him cutting his throat with a hunting knife. When Adam resurrects, Franklin calls him Subject Two and explains that he is engaged in an unethical medical research, bringing dead to life. Along the days, Adam is killed and resurrected over and over again, with Franklin improving his research, until the day Adam decides to leave the isolated spot.

The Simple Life
13 July 2006 | by tributarystuSee all my reviews

One should not view Subject Two expecting a work of epic proportions and impact, as the film wishes to be at its core. Because it would only disappoint and maybe it just isn't worth any disappointments.

The story, well knit together, involves a failing medicine student and a mysterious doctor Frankenstein figure who try to redefine life and death. While this may not be such an impressively original concept, the film still works as a whole out of two solid reasons: up to the task acting and some thought-inducing (if not, once more, thoroughly innovative) ideas.

Given that the basics are there, 'Subject Two' is what I'd call a film with limited potential. I do not believe this theme can be exploited any better than it has been in the past and it'd have to show off something utterly brilliant to sweep me off my feet. A very gentle 6,5 from me.
