Critics Consensus

Equal parts plot holes and unintentional laughs, Replicas is a ponderously lame sci-fi outing that isn't even bad enough to be so bad it's good.

Critic Reviews for Replicas

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (8)

The filmmakers manage to avoid every potentially interesting choice for far dumber, and far more inexplicable, conclusions.

Replicas manages to be perversely entertaining for its fast-paced first half, if only because of the sheer absurdity of its storyline. But it eventually devolves into tedious thriller tropes...

"Replicas" is not without its laughs, even if they're at the expense of the film. For a bad movie, you could do a lot worse. Boot the mapping service, baby.

If you woke up in a glitching simulation, this janky garbage would be projected on every screen, possibly under the title Human Movie.

After what may be one hundred hours, the film does not so much end as it stops, the score's wrapping-up tone an evident substitute for closure or resolution.

Rampant silliness and gaping plot holes test audience patience in Jeffrey Nachmanoff's sci-fi thriller.

Audience Reviews for Replicas


A scientist restores his family with cutting-edge tech after their death in an auto accident. Now while this film purports to be about science, it is actually about magic as it haphazardly jumps from one far-fetched suggestion (human cloning, conscious A.I., tranference of consciousness, etc.) to the next and so requires that the audience not ask too many picayune questions about it, just go along about whatever's being presented onscreen. Given that proposition, it's a thriller about one man's battle against a government conspiracy in order to save his family, and it's serviceable taken in that light. It's designed for a young audience.
