Arnold Schwarzenegger looks tired and bored in this lame retread of all the most popular science-fiction movies, mostly his own; plot elements from Total Recall, Terminator 2 and The Running Man are liberally borrowed. This film looks, talks and plays cheap, and the powerful cast (Michael Rapaport, Robert Duvall, Wendy Crewson) does nothing to help. Schwarzenegger plays a helicopter pilot/family man who finds out he’s been cloned by a mad scientist, who like all mad scientists from Frankenstein to Dr. Evil, plans on taking over the world. Just skip it.
