Though the filmmakers deliver a 'man should not play God' message, the movie's unsettling brand of gallows humor makes it hard to take such pronouncements seriously.
January 1, 2000
If replicating the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger was truly a pressing possibility, we'd get superior knockoffs of better days than this.
January 1, 2000
The filmmakers are too willing to do whatever they think will push the audience's button.

January 1, 2000
Both good and bad news. Good: It's a solid action movie. Bad: It feels like it could have been made five or 10 years ago. It feels stale.
January 1, 2000
This movie plays like something picked up at a vintage store; you can see all the greasy fingerprints from those who have handled it before.

January 1, 2000
A mostly standard-issue latter-day Arnold Schwarzenegger actioner.
January 1, 2000
Some of the action scenes here are among the best of the season.
January 1, 2000
Taking anything too seriously in a movie as cretinous as The 6th Day is a big mistake: Each time you think someone's actually done some thinking, they'll prove you wrong.
January 1, 2000
There's no doubt that the formula for this kind of action film is showing its age.
January 1, 2000
Has unexciting characters overall, and it relies on routine car chases and shootouts that would be even sillier without the booming soundtrack and special effects.
January 1, 2000
For Arnold's career, at least, it's not quite the end of days.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
January 1, 2000
A well-crafted entertainment containing enough ideas to qualify it as science fiction and not just as a futurist thriller.

January 1, 2000
Halfhearted dialogue and acting.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 1, 2000
Far smarter and more airtight than almost any other Ahhh-nuld project since James Cameron's Terminator series.
January 1, 2000
The best Schwarzenegger movie in years.
January 1, 2000
The 6th Day takes place in a future where quarterbacks earn $300 million a season, cars drive themselves, smoking is illegal and people still can't write a decent screenplay.

January 1, 2000
This otherwise undistinguished thriller about cloning is the most entertaining movie from the aging action star for some time.
January 1, 2000
A fast-action, well-paced, clever sci-fi thriller that should go far toward erasing the bad aftertaste caused by last year's End Of Days.
January 1, 2000
The 6th Day is about as close as any of Schwarzenegger's action films have ever come to family entertainment.
January 1, 2000
Joins the ever-growing membership of 2000's Gutless Endings Club.
January 1, 2000
A product of the trained-chimpanzee school of screenwriting.
January 1, 2000
This movie knows how to entertain.

January 1, 2000
A decent action romp.
January 1, 2000
Experience says that the weaker the story, effects or both in these contemporary sci-fi/effects/action spectaculars, the more they juice up the sound. Happily, The 6th Day stands as a modest exception to the rule.

January 1, 2000
File this one somewhere in the upper echelon of Arnold films -- it won't make you forget The Terminator, but it's much more endurable than the likes of Eraser.

January 1, 2000
Despite Arnold's shortcomings in the warmth category, The 6th Day is a solid adventure yarn, a good futuristic flick and a strong visual experience.
January 1, 2000
A clone itself, borrowing elements from Arnold's Total Recall plus a few ideas from Blade Runner and Face/Off, all of which are much better movies.
