Human cloning is the topic, and it would of been a great movie had they kept it just as that. The movie itself had a great plot & start but the horror twist that they decided to throw in kind of ruined it....

They could of played with a persons emotions and really made a good flick without the cheesy special effects and crazy son killing a mother for no reason at all. Why would one be interested in cloning a kid who butchered his entire family knowing mental traits would be passed on as well? It does not make much sense after the first half...

It's still an interesting show to watch and the concept is easy to grasp with some interesting food for thought. But it's not the best, and could of been much better.

Further proof, if any were needed, that Robert De Niro will make any old tripe if the fee is right. This is an unbelievably awful, instantly forgettable paranormal chiller. The parents of a genetically cloned child spend the entire film trying to prove there's a malevolent kink in his DNA and then, when they find this to be true, they choose to ignore it! How's that for plotting? The kid isn't creepy enough to make an impact, and the film is so painfully dull it feels three times longer than it actually is.

A very original story about a controversial subject. Good performances all around with an almost eerie feel to the film.

VERDICT: Definitely worth a watch, it's unlike any storyline I've ever seen

Great cast. Thriller about a couple who lose their son in a car accident but are able to clone him and bring him back to life.

A very average thriller with no real scares as a couple agree to raise a clone of their dead son. However is the new kid a pure copy? Hide and seek is a bit similar but much better.

Grieving parents are offered the chance to "replace" their lost child by a genius geneticist, but once he reaches the age of his death, he is haunted by horrifying visions. A rather hokey supernatural chiller that is bolstered by the presence of Robert DeNiro, who is hardly stretched by his character, but suddenly bursts into life when confronted by Greg Kinnear towards the end of the film. This extremely promising scene comes to nothing though, as he then just disappears, and the film just, well, stops. Some of the scenes involving the boy are stylishly done in a kind of Omen-meets-The Dead Zone kind of way, but the film just peters out to a whimper at the end. A shame, because the build up was actually quite good.

This movie had some of the dumbest special features ever. There was something like 5 alternative endings which were almost identical and so you had to watch all these scenes you'd already seen before to see what they had changed.

A chilling and relentlessly shocking thriller. Original and gripping. It's The Omen for a new generation. Spellbinding, freightning and electrifying. One of the most thought provoking, spine-chilling and diabolocal suspense/horror films in a while. Robert De Niro is brilliant. Greg Knnear and Rebbeca Roman Stamos giver powerful performances.

Godawful. How can somebody make a movie with Robert De Niro in it this poorly? Ludicrous screenplay and flimsy direction. One of the worst of 2004.

An absolutely not terrifying bio-horror. Scientist intends to play God by cloning a deceased son of a couple, little did they know the son isn't quite the son they had before. It was predictable and absolutely disastrous, essentially an Omen copycat. The only shock I got was not from the plot but from a woman knocking on the car window, yes, that was the only shock.

It is not a completely terrible movie, but if bad, at first it gets a little slow and boring but after a while of 10 minutes will put something interesting, but ultimately one that is lost and later rescues her with a story that could give more, and very few moments of real tension in this film is quda a failed attempt to make a good movie.

Pretty horrible. The premise was ridiculous. Most of it made no sense. Perhaps Robert DeNiro had some large debts he had to pay off and therefore had no other choice but to take this role...that's the only way I can explain it. Please don't watch this movie.

What a joke. DeNiro is sleepwalking through this mess as he helps out a couple clone their dead son. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the clone kid isn't going to work out.

I love Robert DeNiro a fellow Italian brother, and love him in this sinister role as genetic engineer who clones a tragically killed son back which dark eery results. Great film.

Really cool movie. It had a really cool story line to it. Excellent job to the writer. Freaky movie. It seemed so weird to clone someone. Story was good and so was the movie. I've seen it twice.

An amazing cast in this, a thriller about a young couple who lose their son in a car accident and are able to clone him and have him back in their lives. Bob De Niro is just so great! the film that proved, "You can't play God" loves it.

For the past thirty years various films have dealt with children being possessed. Everything from Rosemary's Baby to The Exorcist to The Omen has dealt with the subject matter used here but those films at least tried something different and didn't just recycle stuff seen in previous films. Godsend tries to be exactly like those films and even mixes in a bit of The Shining but in the end we're left with one extremely bad film that doesn't have a single thing going for it, which is a shame since the story could have been a whole lot better. Following the death of their eight year old son on his birthday, Jessie (Romijn-Stamos) and Paul (Kinnear) are befriended by a doctor on the forefront of genetic research (DeNiro) at the height of their mourning. He leads the couple in a desperate attempt to reverse the rules of nature and clone their son. The experiment is successful and under Richard's watchful eye, Adam grows into a healthy and happy young boy, until his 8th birthday. As time goes by, the Duncan's gradually start to see small, subtle differences between the new Adam and the Adam they lost. At the time of the new Adam's eighth birthday, the changes in character are more pronounced. Adam grows distant and fearful as a palpable sense of menace settles within the young boy. This Adam begins to suffer from night terrors and frightening flashbacks as a sinister personality begins to emerge. Paul and Jessie cannot escape the fact that this Adam is different. Terror settles on the couple as they try to come to terms with just what they have done, or what has been done to them. "Godsend" was a great deception for me, since I expected much more from this film. The first three quarters have some flaws, but is scary and hooks the attention of the viewer. The parents are dumb as a bag of rocks, which is another irritating thing about the screenplay. Not only do they not consider the side effects but they don't seem to even know when things start to take a change for the worst in their new son. When his attitude begins to change, instead of being concerned they simply don't want to know if something is really wrong or not. The film tries to take a more dramatic turn every once in a while by having the parents fight over what they've done but these scenes go nowhere and instead of having a thought provoking conversation the screenplay pretty much jumps over any bright ideas and goes into the next scene, which makes even less sense. Overall it was an ok movie, I guess if your really bored then maybe watch it.
