What to know

critics consensus

This offering from Arnold Schwarzenegger contains an intriguing, disturbing premise, but the film's execution is too routine and formulaic to make good use of it. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for The 6th Day

    The 6th Day is a great title for a movie about man-made lifeforms. The movie never really lives up to that, I 100% understand the criticisms it received when it was released, but I actually did enjoy watching it.

    Still in the time when Arnold was just stuck making bad movies. Has almost a Total Recall meets The Island feel to it. The script just isn't that great and the story really doesn't suck you in as they sometimes do with a story about human clones. Plus Arnold is a helicopter pilot? I've found that the majority of his films (non-comedies) where he's not a soldier, police officer, etc. are not that great. I'd really only watch this one if you're hell bent on watching the entire Schwarzenegger filmography.

    I liked this film as it tried its hand at the cloning plot which started good but then just became another Arnie action flick and got abit silly at times, Pretty well acted at times it's far from a bad movie but could of been better perhaps given to the right people but saying that it could of been so much worse too.

    I was fairly apprehensive about seeing the 6th Day, but I was glad I did. The film starts off a bit slow, but it steadily builds up to a riveting, action packed climax. This is the type of film where you don't expect much from its concept, acting and overall enjoyment, but in the end is very well done. There are a few areas where the film could have been improved upon, such as some of the dialogue could have been reworked. As it is, it's an exciting action film with a good cast of actors, and for diehard action film fans, they'll surely enjoy this film. I found this one to be a pleasant surprise, and it's a film that is quite underrated and it doesn't deserve the flack it has received. Fans of Arnold Schwarzenegger will definitely enjoy this, and the story here is well put together and executed. Director Roger Spottiswoode crafts a solid film that deserves a second look. The 6th Day may not be a perfect film, but it definitely is better due to the fact that has some good performances and well executed action scenes that manage to keep you on the edge of your seat. Underrated, and better than expected, The 6th Day is a film that is pure adrenaline from start to finish. Like I stated before, it's a bit of a slow start, but it quickly takes off, and when it does it doesn't let go, and it keeps the thrills coming. This may not be Schwarzenegger's greatest film, but it's nonetheless a fun, entertaining popcorn film that you should see if you enjoy Arnie's work. The film may not be a standout Arnold's career, but it's nonetheless a worthwhile actioner to watch if you have nothing else to watch.
