For a movie about cloning, it's only appropriate that The 6th Day, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, is instilled with a strong sense of déjà vu, namely from Arnold's previous "Who am I?" outing, Total Recall. In that movie, Arnold is a normal Joe who discovers that his entire reality has been co-opted by an evil conspiracy, and has to take his life back by force. The same premise applies here for Roger Spottiswoode's clever if overlong sci-fi thriller--Arnold thinks he's a regular guy leading a regular life, until a twist of fate puts him on the run from a vast conspiracy that's replaced him with a clone. While he's trying to evade the evil genetics corporation--and its trendy, deadly, clone-friendly assassins (who don't care how many times they're killed: there's more where that came from)--his double is snuggling at home with his wife and daughter. And new legislation outlaws the existence of human clones, so somebody's got to go. But who gets to be live and who gets to be the dead Memorex man?

Why does said genetics corporation want to clone people? How does the kindly scientist (Robert Duvall) fit in? What's the mystery behind the slick billionaire (Tony Goldwyn) who runs everything? It's all kind of irrelevant in the end, as long as it provides a chance for Arnold to indulge in some energetic mayhem and explosive action. What distinguishes The 6th Day is its sneaky, humorous--and chilling--look at the near future, taking everyday technological advances and turning them up just a couple notches, envisioning an era with cloned pets, virtual girlfriends, and computers running most everything, from the refrigerator to your car. Arnold is supposed to be a throwback to the "real" world--you can tell because he cherishes his vintage, navigation-system-free Cadillac--but as usual, he just brings his behemoth presence to the role and not much else. Still, he's a friendly enough hero, and he rolls with the punches (literally) all the way through to the end. Too bad the film overstays its welcome by about half an hour--a little shorter and it could have been a breezy sci-fi/action romp. With scene stealers Michael Rooker, Sarah Wynter, and Rod Rowland as the trio of cloned assassins who always come back--again and again. --Mark Englehart,

Product Description

In a future world where cloned plants, pets and human organs are freely available, the cloning of entire humans remains illegal. However, this is not enough to prevent an elite corporation from performing sinister cloning experiments along those lines, one of which involves decorated fighter pilot Adam Gibson (Arnold Schwarzenegger). When Gibson returns home one day to find his family infiltrated by a perfect replica of himself, he struggles to get his life back. But with a team of deadly assassins on his trail, desperate to erase all evidence of the illegal operation, how can Gibson hope to succeed?

4.0 out of 5 stars Arnie back to his best 29 Nov 2005
After the rather disapointing End of Days Arnie returned with this impressive Sci-fi thriller. Set in the near future the film revolves around the contraversial subject of cloning. The 6th day refers to the biblical referance of God creating man on the 6th day. In the future the 6th day law forbids the cloning of humans. Arnie finds he has been illegally cloned and starts on a turbo charged mission to regain his identity and expose the organisation responsible.
The film is fast paced, while raising interesting questions about the morals of cloning. Arnies acting is as wooden as ever, but he has such screen presence this can as ever be forgiven. The special effects are good and make for a believable future.
There are a few plot twists along the way building up to a chilling climax.
The DVD features the usual extras, featurettes, making of and trailers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arnie's back where he belongs 26 Jun 2001
By A Customer
I was surprised to find myself liking this movie as my views on yet another Arnie 'action' movie are obstacled by a string of predictability. To my delight The 6th Day had everything I wasn't expecting.
Arnie plays the part of Adam Gibson, a fighter pilot and kind hearted family man blessed with a beautiful wife and sensible daughter, events unfold (sorry folks this is really a film where even the slightest plot giveaway can ruin the rest of the film) and he finds he has an illegal human clone of himself who believes has taken away his family. To protect the corporation against a law suit involving human cloning Adam and the clone are hunted.
Arnie soon ends up on the run, shooting, diving, and pounding with those one-liners to get his family and life back, sounds familiar, look no further than Total Recall, the differences in both films are paramount to The 6th Day's success, due to the film being a lot more simpler than Total Recall, thanks to the talented writing team of Carmac and Marianne Wibberley as well as the careful visions of director Roger Spottiswoode. It is is Spottiswoode that makes the film flow, it's an idea that may have turned out to be disaster but Spottiswoode has allowed space to catch up on events as well as discuss the ethical problems that cloning causes within the plot events and not just some goodie goodie mouthing off to save space for a roll of action sequences.
The effects are brilliant, with clever visual rewinds (the one that rewinds form the end to the beginning is a nice touch)makes the film more than just an effects flick but a creative one. Spottiswoode has also made sure not to overcrowd the events with visual imagery that clutters the plot nor confuse us with whats real and whats not.
The DVD is packed with features - 9 behind the scenes featurettes, composer commentary, storyboards as well as CGI storyboards are covered with The making of 'The future is Coming' and other trailers.

4.0 out of 5 stars The 6th Day 25 Jun 2006
By Dave Kraven VINE VOICE
Director Roger Spottiswoode greatly mixes science-fiction fantasy with terrific action sequences and a strong plot involving the dire circumstances of human cloning in this spectacular futuristic action thriller in which Arnold "Arnie" Schwarzenegger really shows of his potential as he finds out that he's been cloned and goes on a fully-charged mission to get his identity back. He may be getting old at playing kick-ass leads like this but he's heavily supported by a worthy cast and he shows that he's still got it after all these years. Cue in death-defying stunts, brutal fist-fights and clever witticism as this is one of the best futuristic thrillers I've seen in a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars Firmly in the above-average category 19 Feb 2004
By SG4
The title, the trailer and the subject matter (cloning) make you wanna see this film. Add to that the fact arnie is in it makes it all the better. HOWEVER, as many have pointed out already, it gently brushes over the real issues of cloning and romps on with the usual explosions, action, chessy lines and the one-man-against-the-system cliche.
It could have been soooo much better but as it is, its a good film by Arnie. Lets hope his final movie outing before politics takes over full-time is better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Arnie at it again 18 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just rewatched this because I wanted to make a comparison with Surrogates [DVD] which I recently saw for the first time.

6th Day is entertaining,with superb special effects,solid supporting actors and a believable plot well executed by the excellent Roger Spottiswoode.

This is Schwarzenegger's greatest asset:his box office appeal invites clever producers to put together a team of creative writers,directors and special effects masters to produce the goods consistently over the years.

If you enjoyed Arnie's Total Recall (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] you are likely to enjoy this.This has more twists and turns than a serpent and does need to be followed more carefully.In my view it's cleverly composed,with only a couple of plot-holes that don't spoil the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A film cloning other films 18 July 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
That film is not a masterpiece, for sure, even as an action film. But this film goes along with many films with Schwarzenegger that are dealing with the future. We of course think at once of Terminator. But it also deals with another theme that is popular with him: the use of technology and science to enslave humanity, I mean true real human beings. At times this "technology and science" is coming from outer space like in Predator. In this case, like in Total Recall or The Running Man it is coming from humans themselves. In this case it goes slightly further than in other cases. We are not speaking of robots, of the misuse of television and so on, but we are speaking of cloning. What happens when the inventor of a new technology that enables the cloning of a man in twenty minutes, including his mind, memories, etc by the recording of all that via an eye scanner, is using the technology to reproduce himself and his associates? What happens if that inventor is able to inject into each clone a fatal disease that limits his life span to five years maximum, and only the very few at the heart of the plot would be free of that fatal gene or could be cloned again without it? The story of course does not answer these questions really because Adam Gibson (a good old name for the one who will regenerate the creation of God, the creation of the first Adam on the sixth day of his work) self-appoints himself as the one who is going to clean up the plate and he does. The details are in the film. The film adds on this plate the fact that Adam Gibson had been by mistake cloned and then two Adam Gibsons have to cooperate and to survive together, a good lesson of humanity for which the family is the inalienable unit that any man in this family has to defend. Slightly man-centered, but that is no real accident. Read more ›
