Elevator Pitch In the near future the population is represented in the workplace and at play by their surrogates, remotely operated facimiles of themselves. But when people are murdered via attacks on their surrogates a detective must leave the safety of his apartment to solve the crime and save the world.
Content Some attacks on the surrogates, exposing their cogs and wires, some surrogates rubbing against each other and being electrically stimulated. Some violence by humans against humans.
A View It is evident that as Bruce Willis gets older people are looking for suitable vehicles for his more mature self, and in this film they have succeeded quite well. There is a lack logic at times, but if you enjoy plots which push the boundaries of what might ever be possible give it a go.
