I'm still waiting for a movie that offers a real story about cloning; this isn't it.

April 29, 2004
A mishmash of jumpy surprises and creepy portents, with a dash of exposition drivel, some scenery-chewing, and stuff that even in suspending disbelief mode makes no sense.

Godsend overflows with missed opportunities, making barely half-assed attempts to explore the great dramatic implications of human duplication.

Hopelessly predictable, consistently uninteresting and almost entirely worthless.

Director Nick Hamm exacerbates matters with his proclivity for foreboding images, be it the rising mist in the woods, the caw of a crow, or the dilapidated cabin no one should enter.

A poor man's Shining, with some lame Sixth Sense and Omen elements thrown in.
