Has all the get-up-and-go of a dead battery.
October 11, 2009
Its humanity, some cool technology and Bruce Willis save this film from simply being a compilation of a zillion similarly themed "too much technology" lessons.
October 6, 2009
SF chillers of the past that warned about dehumanization -- 'Invaders from Mars,' for example -- posited an outside threat; now, in a 21st-century world of plastic surgery and online avatars, the danger comes from within: the dehumanization is voluntary.
October 4, 2009
Semi-plausible and semi-watchable futuristic (but still looking like today's world) dystopian 'save the world' sci-fi thriller.
October 3, 2009
The problem with the movie is that while the action is swift, the set design is polished and the running time is enjoyably lean, the film leaves behind too many unanswered questions in its quest to drive the action forward.
October 2, 2009
This movie does what science fiction is supposed to do, but seldom does anymore, it makes a comment about today's society by taking current trends and carrying them to a profound technological conclusion.
September 30, 2009
The provocative Philip K. Dick-like premise deserves better than this warmed-over apocalyptic murder mystery.
September 28, 2009
A failure of speculative fiction, of plot, and of good old fashioned action filmmaking.
September 28, 2009
The picture trades in hoary Bruce Willis police procedural clichs and underdeveloped conceits.
September 28, 2009
This play between the plastic and the organic asks if perfect safety is worth sitting in the womb of virtual reality for the rest of your life.
September 28, 2009
Every sci-fi and action flick clich is crammed in here and Mostow couldn't give a damn if you've seen them all before. He might not do them better, but he'll do them well enough.
September 28, 2009
An efficient, engaging B-movie parable that grapples with technology, civil liberties, terrorism, freewill and religious subtext all in 89 minutes. It's also a true rarity: A good movie in which usually bald Bruce Willis sports a full head of hair.
September 28, 2009
fun entertainment and definitely worth seeing for fans of science-fiction/high concept films.
September 28, 2009
This popcorn thriller has a bit of imagination blended in with the been-done-before action.
September 27, 2009
Surrogates - double the sci-fi fun in only 85 minutes. Why the rush, Mr. Willis?
September 27, 2009
While not as smart as it could be, Surrogates is thought provoking and mildly entertaining.
September 27, 2009
High-tech robots threaten humanity in edgy sci-fi thriller.
September 27, 2009
Whatever the reason, Surrogates was shielded from the eyes of critics before its opening, and that's a shame. Because, whatever its flaws, it is a good movie.
September 27, 2009
If the whole point of this surrogate society is to appear as a perfectly beautiful avatar, why would Bruce Willis choose that ludicrous blond wig that looks like he plucked it off a mannequin at Boscov's?
September 27, 2009
If you didn't know any better, you'd swear that both the cast and crew of Surrogates were trying to make the worst movie possible.
