In the near future, cloning is now technically advanced, but human cloning is still illegal. Adam Gibson (Schwarzenegger) returns home after working with his friend Hank Morgan (Rapaport), only to find a clone of himself with his family. Before he has chance to find out the truth, he is attacked by a group who want him dead. Adam must escape and find out the truth from the creator of the clones, Michael Drucker (Goldwyn). Adam knows for sure you couldn't have been cloned, but isn't ready for what he's about to hear.

Technical Specs


Did You Know?


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


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.


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

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
