Surrogates (2009)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
10.15.09

Surrogates (2009) The premise of this movie is interesting but after half an hour I had seen enough and felt like I was just waiting for the movie to be over the last hour.

It's fifteen years in the future and humanity has readily accepted the use of robots to experience their lives through. In the safety of their homes they hook up to a device that links their mind to the surrogates, so they can feel everything without the danger of having to go outside.

Bruce Willis portrays a cop who is on a case involving someone who is killed when their surrogate is killed. Because of the safeguards built into the devices, this has never happened before--and the police station wants to keep on a lid on it or else people will begin to panic. Willis' investigation leads him to a reservation where humans have chosen to live without the technology--and tracks down the man responsible for the murder. He's using this small device that emits an electronic pulse. It fries the surrogates and also the user at the same time. Willis' surrogate is destroyed and the police won't give him a replacement because he's taken off the case. So he must do things the old fashioned way and walk around in his own skin.

The one thing I thought amusing is that every time they showed someone's "real" appearance they made them look really bad, particularly Willis' partner, portrayed by Radha Mitchell (PITCH BLACK). Yet the old age makeup looks fake, which is weird because the CGI effects are so good.

Wait for DVD to see this.
