This was honestly one of the worst movies i have ever seen i saw this in theaters with a few buds of mine this movie made me want to put a bullet in my head. The first time i went to see it i was high off my mind. then i thought id give it another go so this time i went sober. it was still quite possiably one of the worst movies i could have ever seen. im glad that i wasted 10.50 to see everything that was in the trailer. Go watch the trailer and if your not LOVING and i mean LOVING the trailer then do not even waste your time because i promise you, you will be very disappointed. It truly a sad day when even bruce cant make this movie good. i love him in everyone of his movies and then this P.O.S comes out.

In World of Warcraft, that bloodthirsty mass of muscle could well be a geeky, bully-bashed highschooler. In Second Life, that cute, bouncy blonde might the chosen face of a fat, forty-something bald guy. People wear masks of various kinds through most of their daily lives, for perfectly good reasons as well as not-so-good ones. Suppose the mask took over, leaving every trace of the actual person behind?

That’s where this movie starts, in a world populated almost entirely by who people wish they were instead of who they are. Even within Willis’s marriage, he sees only the plastic-perfect version of his wife that he wants seen, not the actual, flesh and blood woman he married.

Willis, as he so often does, plays the role of a police investigator. This time, the investigation starts when someone’s plastic public presence is destroyed – no big deal, since killing a remote-controlled robot is only vandalism. Soon, however, it turns out that something terrible has happened, something impossible. The whole world of synthetic presences is under attack without even knowing it. The rest turns into chases, guns, and last minute saves. You know, the usual.

But, as usual, Willis does a pretty good job with the role he’s given. This could have been a much more thoguhtful movie, going deeper into the world of hidden people, but it’s not that movie. It’s good science fiction adventure, with a backdrop of Boston’s “Brutalist” architecture that fits the bleak mood perfectly.

“Surrogates,” a science fiction film based on a series of graphic novels, is an interesting take on a future where humans could have robotic counterparts, called surrogates, who live life on behalf of their human counterparts. Surrogates are controlled by the humans they represent, and are usually younger and better looking than the humans they represent. Bruce Willis plays a policeman who has not been out in public for years since the death of his young son. His wife, played by Rosamund Pike, is also housebound, and has very little contact with Willis.

When the son of the creator of surrogates is killed, it sets off a chain of events that causes Willis to go out into the world again to solve a deepening mystery that involves the corporation that creates most of the surrogates, the creator of the surrogates, who has turned against surrogacy, and the leader of the anti-surrogacy movement, played by Ving Rhames.

The movie is intelligent, well-acted, and thought provoking. The end solves lots of problems, but also leaves lots of questions that shouldn’t have to be asked. It is an entertaining film, but it could have been better without the plot issues.

I love the concept of having physical avatars you can go out into the world in, have fun, do whatever, without any worry of getting hurt. That alone makes this movie brilliant. Add a murder mystery into that, with some crazy smart hacker who finds a way to hurt the real person behind their surrogate, and its game on. This movie is full of twists and hidden plots. There are plenty of got you moments and I loved Bruce Willis in this. Not his best movie, not the best movie in general, but still pretty darn good.

An okay movie. It could have been better. The acting was fine but it is definitely NOT a family movie.
