There have been a lot of bad films to be released this year but Surrogates has to be one of the worst. Surrogates is a terrible excuse for a Science Fiction/Action film. Bruce Willis hasn't been making good films in a long time and Surrogates is another film to add to his list of failures. Director Jonathan Mostow whose most known for destroying the Terminator Franchise has once again given us a really dated and cheap film. The stunts in the film recall T3 even with a chase sequence that involves leaping over cars. Surrogates basically takes Bruce Willis playing Bruce Willis and mixes it with I-Robot. I-Robot had some decent moments but Surrogates does not.
This is by far the worst action film of the year. It's the epitome of cheap. Surrogates also has a pretty bad plot. Like I said in a previous sentence the film takes elements from previous better Sci-Fi films and this film is just embarrassing. The acting all around is lazy, the effects are dated and the plot flies off the hinges too many times. There is hardly any redeeming quality to Surrogates. The film has to be one of the most boring films I've watched all year long as well. It's played as an action film starring Bruce Willis. Go watch Die Hard instead because Willis is too old to be doing these roles still. Wasn't there enough evidence in Live Free or Die Hard.
There are so many problems with Surrogates that it's hard to think of anything that actually went right. Some characters are laughably bad and the dialogue is funny and I don't think it should be. There really isn't anything positive to say about this turd of a film. Surrogates is messy, boring and not worth your time or money.
