At only 89 minutes, I think Surrogates could have been expanded a bit, but I really enjoy this one. It showcases a not-so-distant future where most people live through attractive surrogate bodies while their real and often unhealthy selves lie in a recliner at home. Basically, this is the concept of an avatar, and the plot revolves around the dispute over the validity of this practice. Surrogates has good concepts, story, visuals and performances. Not many people rate this among their all-time favorites and it has a middling reputation but I certainly recommend it if you're looking for a fun, compact thriller. And these "surreys" are easy on the eyes.
Special Features include the science of surrogates, lots of film related material and feature commentary. Good stuff. Rated PG-13
Even though the director thinks that, he made some sort of unique story or used unique methods of photography like Panavision lenses. I hate to tell him but it has all been done before.
After watching the coming attractions for this movie we get the while story before we start watching. Also based on a graphic novel again we just about get the whole story ahead of the film. What makes the film is the action and seeing how the novel will be adapted or ignored. The Director Jonathan Mostow is an action person so even though he claims that he is a character [person we know what he really is.
I had fun with the story and think you will. Now you can go two ways form here. For the techno-thriller, watch "I Robot" (2004). For the more human aspect of surrogates, watch "Sleep Dealer" (2008)
The story has our world in the future and most of the population runs their "lives" through surrogates,or remote controlled robots.You can be a man controlling a woman,or visa versa,or have a surrogate looking similar to yourself;the possibilities are endless.Of course there are those who do not believe that surrogates are a good thing and they are called Dredds,who live in cordoned off communities.The man who rules over these Dredds is called the Prophet(Rhames),and is quite militant when it comes to his "untouched" turf.
The story begins as the son of the inventor of surrogates is killed by a rogue carrying an awful weapon.The weapon not only fries the brains of the robots but the virus it implants also goes beyond safety protocols and fries the human brain.Greer(Willis)and his partner are FBI agents on the job investigating the crime.They soon discover the perp behind it all and the hunt is on.
Greer,in his surrogate,is in a helicopter above their man who is trapped in an alleyway,at the end of which are five cops.The cops are killed by the weapon and Greer's copter pilot also.Greer's surrogate is fried and Greer himself barely escapes getting killed.Read more ›
The future is well put and the environement is interesting.
On the down side it clearly is a response to Avatar like just unoriginal non-imaginative head-executive can make
-"20th century Fox is making this movie with remote bodies, so let's make our own"
une réalité sous jacente,et comme a son habitude Bruce Willis est a son meilleur dans l'action.
