People are living their lives remotely from the safety of their own homes via robotic surrogates -- sexy, physically perfect mechanical representations of themselves.

Reviews

“The milieu though, is fascinating, the performances are adept at differentiating the human from the ‘surry’, and the jargon is inventive (the robots call us ‘meatbags’). The ideas probably have a bit more juice than the movie, but it’s still an alert piece of entertainment. ”
Trevor Johnston , TimeOut

“Every sci-fi and action flick cliché is crammed into this script, and director Jonathan Mostow couldn’t give a damn if you’ve seen them all before. He might not do them better, but he’ll do them well enough.”
Amy Nicholson, I.E. Weekly

Triva

• Because Bruce Willis refused to re-record several lines of dialogue when the movie was being restructured, a sound-alike voice-over actor had to be brought in.

• In the “beauty shop” where Maggie works, a device can be seen for holding the “faces” of surrogates. In reality, it’s a Gorillapod, a flexible tripod for cameras.

• The opening credits, interspersed with futuristic news footage, run to almost four minutes in length.
