Did You Know?

Trivia:
Comedian Bob Saget is often mistaken for playing the role of Michael Drucker, played by Tony Goldwyn. Both share a similar facial resemblance.

Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: When the premature clone of Drucker wakes up, he screams like he has just been shot, yet the neurosync was taken several minutes after the original Drucker was shot. However, it is quite possible the new clone was uploaded with the neurosync only up to the moment of shooting, in order to spare him the unpleasant memories of the last few minutes of intense pain.

Quotes:
Hank Morgan: My cat, Sadey? She's a repet
Adam Gibson: You had your cat cloned?
Hank Morgan: Yeah, well, she fell out my condo window
Adam Gibson: ...ouch



User Review

Believe it or not, this is a movie to think about!

Rating: 10/10

Surprisingly, this was an excellent movie and certainly one that extends beyond simply being in the action genre. The 6th Day grapples with the ethics behind cloning and the broad spectrum of implications cloning could have on our everyday lives. While yes, the movie near the end becomes pretty action-oriented, it is a very smart movie overall, and it certainly merits one's attention.

Don't let the concept of Schwarzenegger with guns make you think that this movie is brainless...you'll be grossly underestimating it.
