From Amazon.co.uk

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, Amazon.com

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.

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.

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.

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.

I was sent the USA import and its totally uncut being 4 mineuts longer than the UK DVD version!-its proper 16;9 widscreen and the picture quality is razor sharp for such an old film released way back in 2000.And the disc has loads of bonus features to enjoy making this a true collector's item.(ive seen the rare usa import sell for as much as £50 on amazon)If your a fan of Arnie then you must get this USA IMPORT asap.

I was favourably surprised by this 2000 SF/action movie as against my expectations it was fun to watch it. Of course it is not any kind of masterpiece, but a quite honest, solid thing. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Earth, in the near future. The cloning of animals and human organs is now a routine thing and it certainly helped solve the problem of world hunger and also saved lives of countless millions of humans. However cloning entire humans is strictly prohibited by "Sixth Day" laws (because on the 6th day God created Man – and most voting citizens are still reluctant to play God). In this finally rather pleasant future world lives a certain Adam Gibson (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a pilot and owner of a small flying company (two very futuristic helicopters). The company does rather well, but still it is a small business and therefore Gibson and his business partner and fellow pilot Hank Morgan (Michael Rapaport) take any (legal) contract they can get. When the film begins, the skiing season just started and for the last couple of days Gibson and Morgan were flying experienced, wealthy skiers to the top of some harsh mountains, from where a demanding but rewarding descent can be enjoyed.

Then a special customer hires them for such a skiing trip, Michael Drucker (Tony Goldwyn), a prominent billionaire who made fortune in biotechnologies and especially organ cloning. Drucker seems to be a rather likeable fellow, albeit he is renowned for being as tough businessman as he is a great skier.
