The Good:
Not a damn thing good happened in this film…that 0% rating from Rotten Tomatoes is not a typo, folks.

The Bad:
The production was so haphazard and devoid of any attention to detail or even thought. The movie is set in a world where lifelike androids are possible but the rest of the world looks like downtown Orlando with none of the technological advances one would expect to see.
The acting was just unfortunate with solid actors who I really enjoy) like Bruce Willis and Thomas Jane sleepwalking their way through what I can only assume was a nice paycheck for a few days work. And the film’s heroine, Ambyr Childers, was more bangs than actress.

The Ugly:
Does Willis have major gambling debts? Is his bookie threatening to break his legs if he doesn’t pay up? Because I am having a hard time figuring out why he would agree to appear in this film. I haven’t read anything about him having tax issues like Nicolas Cage so his making Cage-ian career choices is perplexing.

Final Verdict: A greater waste of time, money and two good actors I would be hard pressed to find. This is the type of movie that should star Lorenzo Lamas and air in the wee hours of the morning on Cinemax. Avoid it at all costs.

Grade: F
