A world of the very near future in which cattle, fish and even the family pet can be cloned. But cloning humans is illegal-that is until family man Adam Gibson comes home from work one day to find a clone has replaced him. Taken from his family and plunged into a sinister world he doesn't understand, Gibson must not only save himself from the assassins who must now destroy him to protect their secret, but uncover who and what is behind the horrible things happening to him.
Sci-Fi Action - The 6th Day is a futuristic action/thriller in the classic
Arnold Schwarzenegger style. Fans of Schwarzenegger films like
Total Recall will most likely enjoy this slightly satirical,
straight-ahead action story. Viewers who are turned off by too much
violence or action films without much characterization will probably
want to stay away.
There's no point going overboard with praise for The 6th Day, a solid action thriller and little more. It is, however, a pleasure to watch Schwarzenegger in action without cringing in embarrassment. This tale of a man running for his life after being cloned against his will is a return to the classic Schwarzenegger action films of the late 1980s, though a bit too over-directed and over-plotted. There's a pointless explosion here or a bit too much exposition there, but from start to finish it's generally concerned with delivering the goods. And after nearly a decade, it's worth a nod of encouragement that Arnold Schwarzenegger finally doesn't look like a lost action hero.
