Storyline

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.

User Reviews

 
All 100 minutes of this movie are unbearable.
23 July 2016 | by rennmowbraySee all my reviews

I watched it to the end hoping for some plot to emerge and validate the movies 7.3 IMDb rating, nothing happened, so save yourself the pain.

The 'sound effects' begged me to turn it off within the first two minutes, various high pitch tones that continue throughout the film. No plot. I don't know what to say about the acting. The CGI and every part of the imagery is just nauseating.

I've never felt the need to write a review before this, the IMDb rating really effed me here though.

All trust in this rating system is lost.

DON'T WATCH, DO ANYTHING ELSE.
