Excellent Sci-Fi Flick with Great Action Sequences
This film was an interesting twist on the robot as human concept, with
a plot that managed to keep the viewer interested right up until the
dramatic ending. A high tech company has specialized in mass producing
surrogates, or personal robots, which are sold to the American middle
class. They are quickly adopted to perform routine functions and then
essentially perform high level functions (like one's job). The main
theme was how the surrogates assumed people's lives and identities to
such an extent the flesh & blood owner of the surrogate could stay home
and presumably pursue higher level interests. The reality was most
people simply fell into a spiritual stupor, resorting to alcohol or
drugs to pass their time.
The actors were all very good and up to the task of portraying
themselves in robotic fashion (this doesn't require great acting skill
but the screenplay was quite good). I thought Bruce Willis did a good
job in the lead role(s) as FBI Agent Tom Geer (he also played his
"surrogate" as a very low key robot). Bruce's surrogate is
investigating the death of the son of the founder of the corporation
that invented and produced the surrogates. This kicked off the main
plot, which centered around an armed resistance group opposed to
surrogates and attempting to defeat the surrogates and the corporation
that produced them.
If the plot sounds confused, at times it is, and the ending may be less
than satisfying. But for a far fetched sci-fi movie about robots, this
was one of the better ones I've seen..

realy good movie bruce wills rocks again.
woow the movie is awesome.
Pretty good... i'd say.
I have to admit - I wanted to see that movie because trailer was pretty
much AWESOME! Next thing - I'm a sucker for sci-fi movies AND Bruce
Willis brand made me see what's going on. About the movie - Surrogates
( robots themselves ) reminded me of "I, Robot" - I guess I'm not the
only one feeling this similarity. Plot wasn't exactly too strong but
was good enough and didn't fall apart during the movie - that's a plus.
Bruce Willis - there's something about this guy - can't really say what
it is though - each and every time when he's beaten up in a movie it
adds something really special to it ;) His acting was not as good as in
e.g "6th Sense" but still good. About FX - there were few dumb
mistakes, nevertheless overall experience was really nice.
My rating is 7 stars - had to take some for running time - movie was
actually short ,and left me unsatisfied in some way..
