Ripley's movie review

I really enjoyed this one. The premise was interesting, the acting was quite good, and the gadgets were very cool. Sure, there were problems with the plot and too many sex scenes but I still liked it. I had a hard time believing it was a Canadian movie because it certainly didn't feel like one. Warning: some of the scenes near the end were a bit gruesome.

I can't give you Ice's opinion because I watched this one without him. Yeah, he's shocked too.

One other thing... I found it quite amusing that the clones were all played by Baldwin. Kinda fitting really.

Newt's movie review

It was soooo Canadian! There is something I can't quite put my finger on that just screams Canadian here. Maybe it was all the gratuitous sex scenes and the breast fixation?

And it sucked.

The acting was appalling and Baldwin, remarkably, wasn't the worst. But I must agree with Ripley that it was amusing he played the clones.

There were some truck-sized holes in the plot, the acting was awful, it was predictable, it's an interesting idea, but I won't be watching it again.
