Film #308: SURROGATES
2.5 out of 5 stars
An technically okay film from the guy who did TERMINATOR 3 & U-571 that stumbles somewhere between its interesting concept & its ham-fisted "humanist" storytelling. Willis is good as always as are some of the FX, but so much of the first half of film's runtime is spent in exposition that things get kind of corny & predictable by the end. After about midway, it just becomes a lot of running around and incoherent techie-talk about uploads and downloads... which is a pant-load. There are some fun little moments, but... you know where things are going LONG before you get there and there's never really any drama established. Sci-fi fans may like it more, but...
