5.0 out of 5 stars Arnold's back and better than ever February 3, 2001
Format:DVD
After watching recently a sub-par apocolyptic action thriller that will remain nameless, I figured Arnold Schwarzenegger had run his course in the action movie genre. It was a predictable action flick, with the required explosions, car chases, etc. Then I heard he was coming out with a movie in the style of Total Recall at the end of 2000, and I became interested, yet unsure what to expect. It had turned out to be one the most intellegent films to come out of a dismal year of moviemaking. The filmmaker takes a hot-button topic like cloning and turns it into a thriller with a mind and a heart. Pets in the not-too-distant future can be brought back to life in new bodies, but human cloning has been banned, for obvious moral/scientific reasons. He plays a pilot who is assigned a charter to ferry a billionare. Things after that become very intense,resulting in the cloning of Arnold, and with mind-blowing action scenes not seen since T2-Judgement Day. There is really no slow spots to the film; it moves along a fluid-like pace. The special effects are very good, and I don't need to tell you what an action movie with 2 Arnold Schwarzenegger's fighting along side is like. Watch out bad guys! This is a film on the same intellect as total recall, and with the action scenes and heart to match T2. I think this film will do much better on DVD/video now that the word is out about this film.

Format:DVD
Some of the criticism of "The 6th Day" centers on the undeniable fact that we've seen a bit of the main character, Adam Gibson, before. Was "6th Day" cloned from stuff "Total Recall" left on the cutting room floor? Well, aside from the always-appealing plot theme of "who am I, really" which is also in "Total Recall", I have to say, no, this is a good, mostly original and enjoyable science fiction thriller.
And thrilling it certainly was. Though some of the thematic material is somewhat derivative if you are a sci-fi buff, this movie delivers a goodly amount of suspense and turn-around surprises. It isn't the smartest plot in the DVD deck; I found some of the scenes predictable and there was one deplorable and totally gratuitous car chase early in the film. (Grrrrr I hate gratuitous car chases.) And later on, there is a Matrix-cloned scene involving another type of transportation, but I won't put ANY spoilers in here and tell you about it. But it's why I nicked this a star and rated it four and not five.
However, if you can shut an eye to the vehicular filmicide, you may enjoy a reasonably fast-paced, very suspenseful film with a good supporting cast, too.
Schwarzenegger has been quoted as saying he believes in delivering plenty of good entertainment value for the filmgoer's dollar, as in "Terminator 2" --a big favorite. He is a man of his word. "The 6th Day" has lots of good stuff-- thrills, suspense, special effects. It's fine science fiction and lots of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action, Sci-fi and Arnold make a great film November 17, 2000
The last few of Arnolds films haven't been that great, but this is definetly his best movie in a long time. Its starts off fast and ends just the same way. What makes me love this movie even more is that it was filmed in my hometown of Vancouver. So for me I was also playing name that location throughout the movie. Besides the awesome scenery there are great visuals in this film. The cgi effects of the helicopter/jet hybrid plane was cool to say the least, and the sound effects blow you away. There are a lot of crude humour jokes related to the cloning theme. There is also a lot of original ideas about the future which I haven't seen in a film, one of these examples is a store called Re-Pet, in which they clone the family dog or cat after it dies so there is no loss in the family. Those scenes were quite funny. This is definetly a great film to see on the big screen.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 Stars - Average Arnold Movie May 7, 2001
Format:DVD
There's no denying the movie is entertaining. An average action movie is much easier to sit thru than an average drama. I admit this movie is better than I expected, but I didn't expect that much. From reading the other reviews, you'll see that many people felt that this was a lot like "Total Recall", while some aren't facing the facts. The fact is that this movie has a lot in common with "Total Recall": a futuristic setting, the special efx, the scenario where Arnold is unsure of who he is and his world is turned upside down. The twist with this movie is that is does cover the topic of human cloning. It's an interesting concept, however the other reviews are stretching it when they call it a extremely thought provoking movie.
The short of it all, is that it is an entertaining movie that is worth the rental. However, it doesn't stand out with "Terminator", "Predator", "True Lies", or "Total Recall" as one of his best ones. Unless you own all his movies I recommend you rent it before you decide to purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars TOP NOTCH ARNIE ACTION March 18, 2001
Format:DVD
Adam (Schwarzenegger) is a helicopter pilot in the not too distant future. Cloning is still a hot topic issue and he comes home one day to find that another him is in the household. Why this has happened and what he can do to stop it are all part of the bizarre plotline.
The movie scores big where it is supposed to. The action sequences are great and the effects hold their own. Arnold does the usual job of carrying the film both with his muscle and his corny one liners. I am a big Schwarzenegger fan so I enjoyed it for the eye candy that is was.
Word of warning. This is not a thinking man's movie. There is no overwhelming dramatic acting here, even by the likes of supporting actors Robert Duvall and Michael Rappaport. The plot line is step by step and the ending is as transpartent as Saran Rap. But the film overall was an extemely enjoyable action flick and the video and sound are great. It entertains and any action fan will love it.
