Set in a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and interact through surrogate robots, a cop is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in order to investigate the murders of others' surrogates.
An aging alcoholic cop is assigned the task of escorting a witness from police custody to a courthouse 16 blocks away. There are, however, chaotic forces at work that prevent them from making it in one piece.
When a family is held hostage, former hostage negotiator Jeff Talley arrives at the scene. Talley's own family is kidnapped and Talley must decide which is more important: saving a family he doesn't even know or saving his own family.

People are living their lives remotely from the safety of their own homes via robotic surrogates -- sexy, physically perfect mechanical representations of themselves. It's an ideal world where crime, pain, fear and consequences don't exist. When the first murder in years jolts this utopia, FBI agent Greer discovers a vast conspiracy behind the surrogate phenomenon and must abandon his own surrogate, risking his life to unravel the mystery.Written by
When Agent Greer meets Col. Brendon in his office, Col. Brendon is wearing the U.S. Army "Class B" uniform (shirt & tie, without the Class A jacket). His Class B shirt should have, as a minimum, a name tag and rank insignia shoulder boards. While U.S. Army uniform regulations could change in the future, it's unlikely that they would change to where you would be unable to identify the soldier's name and rank, especially since his ACU fatigues and Class A uniform are identical to 2009-era U.S. Army uniforms.

Look at yourselves. Unplug from your chairs, get up and look in the mirror. What you see is how God made you. We're not meant to experience the world through a machine.

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.
