critics consensus

Though it sports a slick look and feel, Surrogates fails to capitalize on a promising premise, relying instead on mindless action and a poor script. Read critic reviews

    Like most films in this genre It has a good idea but fails to make any of its ideas work or feel fresh mostly down to the story being told poorly and really doesn't know where to take the story so it uses an ending that was predictable, The effects were good and some nice action scenes but that's it really, Willis does his best to try and save the film but even he can't help it feeling like an I,Robot knock off.

    I think Surrogates hits a little bit too close to home for many which is why there is a collective hate on. I personally found the story line to be an accurate depiction of where life may be heading. It is in the execution that this film falls a little short.

    Smart and provocative, Surrogates is a fascinating science fiction thriller. In a world where humanity is living life remotely through automated robots called "surrogates," the social order becomes threatened when an FBI investigation uncover the existence of a weapon that has been developed to kill a person through their surrogate. The material is quite rich and does a good job at exploring how technology changes a person and takes away their humanity. And, director Jonathan Mostow crafts at intriguing vision of a future dominated by robotics. Additionally, the cast, which includes Bruce Willis, Radha Mitchell, Rosamund Pike, and Ving Rhames, give some interesting performances. Some areas of the film are underdeveloped, but overall Surrogates is entertaining and full of intriguing science fiction concepts.
