Surrogates update feed

Happy Vader posted a review 1 year, 8 months ago

“Bruce Willis from the past 5 years has become more ubiquitous than Agent Coulson. Almost all of his films are watchable but he always almost hampers his characters - and the pace of the film - down by his trollish performances that give off airs as if he is completely bored by the project. Here's a friendly tip: try and watch as many sci-fi / action movies from the 80's, 90's and early 2000's as possible. Throw in a couple of Willis films in there, too. After when you've achieved that, watch The Surrogates and if you see tons of resemblances to previous sci-fi movies, don't be surprised. The setup, the story, the action, the theme is all been there, done that. In this endless explosions-era, dramatic and story driven sci-fi's are few and far in-between. Not to say I didn't fully enjoy this” read more

“This film has many messages but I'll digress, if you'll forgive me for this, into a simple interpretation of the narrative:

What does it mean to be human? What if we could exist in our 'perfect' states and live for 70+ years as the perfect young adults we all love? To feast and laugh and love and fuck and rejoice in existence as if life was a beach party from beginning to end?

Could it be any better?

Yet, heroism presupposes a significant loss else it's an abbreviation. For this I couldn't connect but the gist was enough to parlay the message of loss and sacrifice and if it didn't have the trite payload of that illusory concept of the selfless gesture then I'd have spread it on toast. But still Id've fed it to the pet.

“Went to see this at the cinema three years ago and wanted to walk out half-way through, but I was mesmerised by Bruce Willis and his blond wig, I just had to stay and laugh. Apart from that acceptably hilarious oddity, its an utterly rubbish "sci-fi flick" built around the concept of unflawed robotic versions of the human form who are not to be trusted. CLEARLY THE FILMMAKER WAS TRYING TO BE PRETENTIOUS, BUT ONLY ENDED UP BEING DULL, OVERCOOKED AND SILLY.” read more

"Ihan mielenkiintoinen idea, mutta käsikirjoitukseltaan jätetty turhan sekavaksi. Myöskään toimintakohtauksissa ei ole kovinkaan paljon kehumista, vaikkei nyt aivan kamalaa jälkeä olekaan. Bruce Willis ei tässä elokuvassa ole aivan parhaimmillaan."

"2.6. Yrittää kovasti sanoa tärkeitä asioita ihmisistä ja ihmisyydestä, mutta vääntää kaiken rautalangasta ja on kaiken lisäksi pikemminkin typerä ja yhdentekevä. Kliinisten sijaisrobottien välinen draama ei jaksa kiinnostaa tai jännittää pätkän vertaa, eikä Bruceakaan näytä kiinnostavan mikään - hänellä on kaksoisrooli eli tasan kaksi eri ilmettä. Perusvarmaa hajutonta, mautonta ja pystyynkuollutta tusinascifiä siis. Mitäänsanomattomasta tylsyydestä tulee tällä "

"30.5. Jumalauta mitä tuubaa. Tulevaisuuden ennustamisen ongelmat liittyvät usein siihen, että teknologisten innovaatioiden hahmottamisesta huolimatta emme näe, millaisia sosiaalisia muutoksia nuo tekniikkaharppaukset tuovat. Surrogatesissa yksioikoisten päätelmien lisäksi esimerkiksi ei ole luotu mitään uutta, vaikka lähes kaikki ihmiset kulkevat leffassa sijaisroboteissa. Tämä on jotenkin myös ilmeisesti poistanut maailmasta rikollisuuden, vaikka käyttötapa lähinnä lisäisi ma"

An average movie

“Even before watching this flick, I was really intrigued by the whole concept. Furthermore, I thought it was pretty neat to finally see Bruce Willis turning up in a SF flick. Of course, since we are dealing here with a Hollywood production, I wasn't expecting anything mind-blowing but, all in all, I thought it was pretty entertaining. There was a nice cast (Bruce Willis, Radha Mitchell, Rosamund Pike, James Cromwell, Ving Rhames) but, honestly, even though Bruce Willis was allright, I don't think he added much to the whole thing and any other star could have done the job but he wasn't bad either, that's for sure. So, I really enjoyed the concept (even though it seems rather unbelievable that 98% of the world population could afford such a device which seems rather pricy) and it provided som” read more
