We're intrigued by the premise of this Bruce Willis sci-fi pic, and even more intrigued now that it's shaping up as one of the most polarizing movies of 2009.
"Fans of actual sci-fi literature will probably enjoy this more than fans of slam-bang action. But at less than 90 minutes, it's not long enough to bore the haters too badly."
— Luke Y. Thompson, E! Online
"...a smart, speculative suspenser..."
— Todd McCarthy, Variety
"...a serviceable sci-fi thriller..."
— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"In this kind of industrial entertainment, particularly one that seems to be missing some connective narrative tissue, it's hard to know if the writers, John Brancato and Michael Ferris (working from the graphic novel by Robert Venditti and Brett Weldele), or the director, Jonathan Mostow, can be credited or blamed for what's left on screen."
— Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Lame science fiction about synthetic people that lacks for logic and drama."
— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
