Format: DVD
In the ever growing number of adaptations of the works of Phillip K. Dick into movies, this may not be my favourite, but it does have the advantage over some of the other movies that PDK would have recognised the story, though I'm not sure if he'd have seen the need for the double surprise at the end - which I confess, rather heretically, that I actually thought rather neat.

The film may not have the production values or star roles of "The Adjustment Bureau" - but it is definitely adapted from PDK's work, rather than merely inspired by it. (T.A.B. was a good Sci Fi film, but only vaguely connected to the original story).

Set in a dystopian future in which humans are at war with an unseen alien enemy, "Impostor"- like many of PDK's works - revolves around the theme of identity. How do we know who we are? How do we know when we have been replaced by something alien? How can we prove that we are still who we think we are?

Most of the details of the original story are here, along with some scriptwriters' inventions that give the film a more "action movie" feel in the mid section. Though without letting slow-mo fight scenes dominate - something that bores the pants off me personally - like the "Matrix" follow ups.

The overall feel of this pic is of a superior quality modern "B" movie and if you take it in that spirit and you're a fan of PDK's themes, you will probably enjoy it.

A great cast for a great story with a nice twist, where the main character - a scientist specialized in weaponry in a future war against aliens, suddenly finds himself public enemy # 1 and doubting his own identity.

Gary Sinise (Mission to Mars) is, as usual, exceptional. Vincent D'Onofrio, although a bit verbose, makes a decent "bad" government agent, and the atmosphere and visual effects credibly render the Earth at war in the year 2075.

I recommend to first watch the short version of the movie, provided in the DVD as a special feature and which was the intended original version. This short film is well balanced and straight to the point: a great Philip K. Dick's story. The long version (a request from the production) has an added middle part dragging you through concrete corridors with not-quite-convincing action scenes: this breaks the dynamics and may explain the bad reviews it received.

Format: VHS Tape
There is something insidious about a PKD plot. Many of them lend themselves to movie adaptation - for instance Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Blade Runner), We can remember it for you wholesale (Total Recall) and of course Minority Report. It's been 30 years since I read the story, but it was still pretty fresh in my mind. The script seems to stick pretty close to what PKD wrote, and that may be the problem. It distresses me to admit that a movie can go wrong by being too faithful to the story on which it is based, but that seems to have happened here. The lack of insight into the protagonist's feelings and thought processes limits the empathy you can feel for him, so the plot ends up as a kind of telescoped futuristic "The Fugitive". Gary Sinise does what he can with the lead role, with Madeleine Stowe even more muted as his wife. The two most colourful characters are Vincent D'Onofrio as the ambivalent Major Hathaway of Security, and Mekhi Phifer as the streetwise Cale.
Bottom line - this is a story set in 2075 but written in about 1960, and that harms its credibility. Our surveillance techniques today are just about as good as those in Impostor - surely a dictatorship locked in a life-and-death struggle with merciless aliens, 70 years in the future, could do better when it comes to tracking a runaway? Perhaps a little more explanation and less high-speed, hard-to-follow action would have helped. When all is said and done, it's still a pleasure to follow the precise mechanism of PKD's scenario as it works itself out.

Typical of its genre, with a Good Guy mistaken for a Villain, the inevitably over-zealous Authorities crashing about in hot pursuit, a bit of a sub-Plot well integrated to good effect, some nice touches throughout to keep you guessing and surprising Finale

Thoroughly enjoyed watching this - the rotten tomatoes score is wrong. If you like sci-fi movies then you'll like this one. Is he or isn't he a replicant?

Spencer Olham (Gary Sinise) a renowned scientist is responsible for creating a weapon that may save the Earth from evil aliens. His wife is a popular M. D.

This morning Spencer goes to work and notices the he is getting the eye from suspicious people and for the first time security challenges him. Turns out based on a report he is suspect of being a bomb toting replican for the other side. Shades of Blade runner.

Now for the rest of the film Spenser tries to prove the he is who he is. Mean time the authority Hathaway (Vincent D'Onofrio) is not listening and just wants a good shot.

We go along for the ride. It is actual a fun ride as we get to guess "is he or isn't he?"

There is a tad too much CGI balanced by chases and shoot-outs.

Based on a short story "The Impostor" by Philip K. Dick, adapted by Scott Rosenberg, screen play by Caroline Case, Ehren Kruger, and David Twohy.
