Overview

In this science-fiction thriller set in the very near future, DNA cloning has been perfected and has become an accepted part of everyday life -- cattle and fish are cloned for sale at the market, genetically engineered fruit and vegetables are found in most family's kitchens nacho-flavored bananas, anyone?, and if your pet dies, you can even order a cloned replacement. But laws have been passed that strictly forbid the cloning of human beings. However, helicopter pilot Adam Gibson Arnold Schwarzenegger, who believes people should live and die the old-fashioned way, discovers that someone has been violating these regulations. After Adam luckily avoids being on a copter that crashes, he comes home to discover someone has duplicated him. Now Adam is on a mission to find out who cloned him and why, as he struggles to take back his life from a scientifically created impostor, his boss Michael Drucker Tony Goldwyn, and a pair of thugs Sarah Wynter and Rod Rowland who have been cloned into near-indestructibility. The 6th Day also stars Robert Duvall as cloning expert Griffin Weir, Michael Rooker as Drucker's right-hand man Robert Marshall, and Michael Rapaport as Adam's partner, Hank Morgan.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Recent scientific advancements lend credibility to the not-so-improbable events vividly dramatized in The 6th Day, a sci-fi thriller that returns Arnold Schwarzenegger to the genre that made him a box-office monster. The film is set in a near-future America, where shopping malls have stores that clone dead pets and where human cloning -- while possible -- remains outlawed. That doesn’t stop ruthless tycoon Tony Goldwyn Ghost and rogue scientist Robert Duvall, who develop a black market in people regenerated from traces of DNA material. Arnold portrays a helicopter pilot caught up in Goldwyn’s schemes and targeted for death while a clone assumes his identity. The 6th Day offers Arnold’s fans plenty of action, albeit of a less lethal variety than found in some of his previous vehicles, while raising some interesting questions about the morality of cloning-on-demand. Director Roger Spottiswoode Tomorrow Never Dies doesn't let the big questions bog down the narrative, though, as he maintains a driving pace straight through to the closing credits. He also surrounds the histrionically challenged Schwarzenegger with terrific actors like Goldwyn, who’s a positively reptilian villain, and Duvall, whose recently widowed scientist, haunted by his conscience, strikes a poignant note. Exciting, suspenseful, and dare we say intellectually provocative, The 6th Day is a must-have item for Arnold’s admirers and sci-fi fans alike. The DVD includes a phony infomercial for the film’s pet-cloning company, RePet, along with an audio commentary by music composer Trevor Rabin, an isolated music score, talent files, production notes, and theatrical trailers.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The 6th Day is not in the same league with the great Schwarzenegger films such as Total Recall and Terminator 2, but it's a well-crafted entertainment containing enough ideas to qualify it as science fiction and not just as a futurist thriller.

    Arnold Schwarzennegger is Back!

    He's back! This time Arnold is taking on the topic of cloning. In The Sixth Day fans will get a double dose of their favorite action hero as this film speculates on a worst-case scenario about human cloning. Three years ago, the action star underwent heart surgery and took a year off from his busy film schedule to regain his health. This film definitely marks his triumphant return to his trademark kind of action film. Fans will not be disappointed.
