The Sixth Day

The Sixth Day offers action in the Arnold Schwarzenegger style. Well, not right away. Ah-nuld is no killer robot this time. He's Adam Gibson, a charter pilot who likes being a homebody with his wife (Wendy Crewson) and daughter (Taylor-Anne Reid). Then he gets cloned. A billionaire bad guy (Tony Goldwyn), in league with a scientist (Robert Duvall), is playing God for fun and profit. Adam gets pissed — of course — and whatever satirical digs director Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies) hoped to take at genome technology quickly degenerate into the usual bang-bang.
