After a car accident kills his loving family, a daring neuroscientist will stop at nothing to bring them back, even if it means pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force, and the physical laws of science themselves.
Crime Mystery Sci-Fi - This is a science fiction thriller that leans more toward drama than
action, despite the presence of lead star Keanu Reeves. His fans
should be pleased as this is a big showcase for him; other familiar
faces such as Alice Eve and John Ortiz are distinctly secondary.
Some language, violence, and dark subject matter make the film not
PROFANITY: 14 S-words; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Shootings, fighting, stabbings with little visible blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: A car chase and some fighting. COMEDY: Rare comic lines.
Roger EbertFull Review Poor ...truly dreadful... It's a movie without a clear opinion of its own protagonist, which means we're unlikely to care too, and the whole thing falls apart in terms of storytelling. ...completely ludicrous on a dozen or so levels, but it depressingly avoids the camp or style needed to make an implausible story work as pure entertainment.
Slant MagazineFull Review Poor The climax's bizarre left turns culminate in a final image so bewildering that were the film not so relentlessly dour it might have clarified Replicas as an absurdist comedy.
The GuardianFull Review Poor When the guy's good, he's great, and when he's bad, he's still serviceable. If only anyone else involved could muster a fraction of the consummate professionalism that Reeves brings to his dead-serious intonation of the word "algorithm”, this DOA science project might have had a pulse.
