Robert Downey Jr.,

The second trailer released for the movie features the song "Icon" by Jaden Smith, who is Will Smith's son. See more »
It's revealed in the third act that Henry has a GPS tracker implanted in his arm that he never knew about. This being the case, there would have been no reason for Danny to go undercover at the dock and plant a GPS tracker on Henry's boat. Also, after Junior removes the GPS tracker from Henry's arm, they are still able to be tracked by Gemini. See more »
Unlike Ang Lee's hometown masterpiece Yin shi nan nu (1994), I had little to no expectations of this film bringing any substance to the table. The trailer did not sell it well. The clone concept has been done multiple times over (pun intended). Even Arnie's The 6th Day (2000) had a plot more original than this.
There is some good to take out of this film though, we get to experience amazing Next Level use of 3D Technology featuring HFR (High Frame Rate). There are honest moments of "Whoa" and "That was cool". However, this wasn't enough of a distraction from the awful script. It was as if the technical crew just wanted to play with their toys as soon as an opportunity presented itself (cough, Jerry Bruckheimer, cough).
On that note, I can see this technology being used in a more balance collaboration that will surely pay off down the track. Until then, maybe check this film out if you are looking for a preview of what could be.
