The organization Brand New-U identifies networks of IDENTICALS - people who walk like you, talk like you, but are walking through different, better lives - and helps their customers make a life upgrade: eliminating the better-life donor, and relocating their client to that brand new life. Slater seems to have the perfect life, the perfect job and the perfect girlfriend. But when Slater's girlfriend is abducted by Brand New-U, and a corpse left in her place, he is forced to become an Identical. As he moves through a series of parallel lives, he becomes more and more obsessed with finding his girlfriend, but what he must find in the end is himself.
Plot based on 1966's "Seconds" starring Rock Hudson. See more »
There are no redeeming qualities about this movie. I thought that the premise sounded intriguing but I found it confusing. and boring. I kept waiting for something good to catch my interest which never happened. The characters are hard to follow and have no depth. I couldn't figure out their motivation. The roles are confusing and I am not sure I even understood the plot as it was so poorly defined. I couldn't figure out if the characters were trapped in some sort of alternate world or if it was based on a very strange world in general. I'm not sure I even understood the ending. It was by far the worst movie I've seen this year.
