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 »
Boring pointless film makes no sense and full of unnecessary slow motion
This is one of the worst films I have ever seen. Nothing happens in this film, and that nothing somehow manages to not make any sense.
There's no plot, no ending, no explanation of what is going on. They take short shots and DRAG them out for FOREVER with stupid pointless slow motion!
AVOID THIS FILM!
It's not even bad in a way that can possibly be enjoyed - it's just awful and boring and pointless!
Science fiction is supposed to play with an interesting idea. This film begins with what seems like an interesting premise, and then manages to throw away that premise and just become a confusing mess full of pointless slow motion. AVOID!
