Just as the film's synopsis suggests, Surrogates looks like one heck of a sci fi thriller. Bruce Willis looks good and he seems more than comfortable back in the sci fi genre. Better yet, it looks like this film has taken the whole I, Robot idea to the next level. As in, they made it good.
FBI agents (Bruce Willis and Radha Mitchell) investigate the mysterious murder of a college student linked to the man who helped create a high-tech surrogate phenomenon that allows people to purchase unflawed robotic versions of themselves—fit, good looking remotely controlled machines that ultimately assume their life roles—enabling people to experience life vicariously from the comfort and safety of their own homes. The murder spawns a quest for answers: in a world of masks, who's real and who can you trust?
