This movie was incredible. As soon as it got boring - which was pretty early on - off I went. It's not as if I went to this movie intending to take a nap, but bam! Right out of the blue I was gone.So yeah, I was at Fox intending to see Dan Brodie, but I had got the times mixed up and was two hours early. I needed something to occupy my mind for two hours. Since most of the activities at Fox require the pillaging of a small pacific nation to raise the money to pay for them, I decided on a movie.
My two choices that would start soon and finish in time for dapper Dan, were only Vertical Limit or The 6th Day - Not exactly two films I was rushing to the cinemas to sneak past the ticket collectors to see. The coin toss came up heads and so it was The 6th Day.
The film started and rather early on I was realising how comfy those seats were and that coupled with darkness and this particular movie this setting was quite a challenge to keep unconsciousness at bay.
The film's title is a reference to the bible - That so-called, amusing collection of short stories has a part in it where on the sixth day God created man. I, instead, was skipping that day and had the far more restful day 7 on my mind.
The film's title was referring to us humans being on the verge of creating a person in our own image - all on our own with no help from God - through cloning. Simpler test on lower order beings had proven successful. Like a sheep named Dolly, and a Bush named President Of The United States. Do you think that W.'s public speech making abilities were cloned from the sheep as well?
Maybe the filmmakers could have cloned a film that could keep me interested; or attentive; Or awake. I was looking at my watch and was wondering if it was broken as time seemed to be going very slowly, The watch was new, so I knew that it was OK - It had to be the film.
Don't you hate it when you're having a nice nap and then a sudden noise wakes you up? This film had sudden loud noises in it, I noticed. Hate that.
Something else I noticed is that it seems that Schwarzenegger's emotional range as an actor seems to be limited to robot characters who don't have any emotions. Anything else seems to be a bit of a stretch for the man. Especially when there are two of him. Having twice as many Arnies doesn't double the acting ability.
I also noticed in the film that there was some cool helicopter/jets plane thingies with remote controls and that the wig worn by Wynter looked like a reject from a Rocky Horror party.
Again I'm "looking at my watch and I'm half past caring" about what was going on in the film. It's was getting close to Dan Brodie starting and I was debating over whether I should stay for the end of the film.
I waited for the end of the film and I think I missed some crucial plot points during one of my consciousness-challenged periods because I had no idea why Arnie #1 was doing what he was doing with Arnie #2. Indeed I didn't know which Arnie was which. So the ending didn't seem to really matter to me. I had obviously missed some vital moments. So I left the cinema and watched Dan.Dan was great.
