Rated PG-13 · 88 minutes · 2009

Action, Science fiction, Thriller
In the future, humans stay home and hook themselves up to computer rigs while robots go out and lead their lives for them. Bruce Willis stars as an FBI agent who lets his robot self (Willis with a blonde wig and a CGI makeover) do the talking. When the destruction of some surrogates causes their users to die, Willis’ character eventually finds his human self looking for answers. This is a good premise, but the opportunity to examine the emotional complexities of a world overtaken by technological gadgets is lost; the film is just too slick and generic. I got the feeling its river may’ve run a little deeper in another version, but stuff probably got cut to make it move quicker. It’s too bad, because Willis is good here, as is Radha Mitchell as his FBI partner. Hey, has anybody else noticed that Willis totally sucks at fake yawning?
