Movie Reviews

I see many reviews here that denigrate the film, and a few that celebrate it. I believe it deserves neither fulsome praise nor vitriol, as it is a somewhat better than average film betrayed by bad choices.<br/><br/>I&#39;ll keep this short: The concept is decent, the execution is mediocre, the result is that I give it 7 out of 10 stars.<br/><br/>I would have graded this far higher had the creators spent more time making several of the characters more human (which is funny, given that &quot;humanity&quot; as compared to a more machine-like existence is a core concept of the screenplay), but they didn&#39;t. The only character in the film who achieves anything like true humanity is Bruce Willis&#39;, and this occurs only because the plot requires it.<br/><br/>When a film&#39;s construction and leverage depend on the very definition of humanity as it&#39;s core concept, leaving the humanity of most of the characters behind is something more than stupid -- it cripples the film.<br/><br/>This doesn&#39;t mean the film is unwatchable; it has enough elements of action, pathos, suspense &amp; revenge to make it worth your time throughout.<br/><br/>But it could have been so much better, if not for so many poor choices.

It&#39;s a great concept. In the future, the Sims style online gaming, where people live vicariously through characters, has evolved to living out real-life, in the real world, via surrogate robots. Everybody stays home all the time, 24/7. They work, play and travel via their surrogates, from the comfort of their home.<br/><br/>I&#39;m not spoiling anything here -- this all happens in the first 5 minutes. The result of this new era of existence is the dramatic drop in violent crimes, sexually transmitted diseases, death by accident, etc.<br/><br/>Well, it&#39;s a great concept. And the CGI is good. Because of the plot, every character is insanely pretty, so the screen is filled with beautiful people.<br/><br/>But... it just... doesn&#39;t... quite... gel. The whole thing feels like a cool episode of Star Trek, or something on TV. The story is not riveting. I didn&#39;t really care about the characters. The timing was off; things either came too late (I was bored, expecting them) or so fast I couldn&#39;t really appreciate.<br/><br/>Surrogates lacks that wow-factor.<br/><br/>Example of bad timing: At the start, one wonders, &quot;What do the users really look like? Anything like like their surrogate robots?&quot; I would expect that, at first, we see Bruce Willis, just some facial hair which his robot doesn&#39;t have. Then, eventually, we see that he is older than his robot, so he&#39;s &quot;cheating&quot; on age too. Even later still, maybe we&#39;d see an obese person at home posing as an athlete via a surrogate which looks nothing like him. Well, &quot;Surrogates&quot; skips all that build up and goes straight for the punchline: within 10 minutes we see a hot chick robot making with a young man; turns out the hot chick is actually slovenly a middle-aged man. Any twists to come later, in this variety, loses all punch.<br/><br/>Worth a rental.

SURROGATES presents a strong sci fi storyline that isn&#39;t so convoluted that it exhausts the viewer from mental analysis of what&#39;s going on. It also is crafted well so that unlike a number of sci fi action movies, the balance between the action and the human relationship components are in sync. This hybrid sci fi movie includes elements from I, ROBOT (2004) that introduced many of the similar robotic images, THE MATRIX (1999) that introduced the notion of virtual reality plug ins, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK (1981) that introduced a post-modern society isolated from the rest of humanity, and FAHRENHEIT 451 (1966) that presented the dystopic future angst of a couple separated by technology. Bruce Willis continues at the top of his game in this movie bringing an even more subdued and sympathetic character to the screen. The action is compelling and strong, the technological premise of this movie is well executed, and the human/surrogate disconnect is remarkably engaging on an emotional level. Unfortunately, in somewhat of a less than powerful and poignant delivery, unlike FAHRENHEIT 451, SURROGATES ultimately has as its core the more traditional and perhaps predictable resolution and tidying up of lose ends favoring a more conservative and pedestrian movie overall.
