I loved the premise. And I thought there was so much to explore there that this movie left out. Instead, it was a pretty by-the-books detective mystery. Not much more interesting than an old episode of Law & Order. B-

It also bothered me that after the first murder they talk about how they can't even remember the last time they had a murder case. All anyone would have to do is find out where someone lives and they could kill them. If anything I think murders would go way up considering you can kill someone without having any risk of getting yourself hurt in the process.

Just watched Surrogates. Was anyone else painfully aware of how close we are to that kind of shit actually happening?

Anyway, it was ok for what it was. It also felt a bit rushed.

I picked it mainly because I read a bit of the comic. I agree, a lot more could have been done with the premise, but I still found it fun. And it's usually the main premise that gets my head buzzing when it comes to sci-fi, rather than specifically what happens on the screen. It had the potential to make an excellent TV show though.

You totally get the point of doing this.

Anyhoo, Banoobie, you pick next.

Y'know, I have yet to see The Surrogates despite the fact it's based on a friend of mine's graphic novel. Ow! my foot! Sorry, I dropped a name.



Before you ask, yes, he hated the movie.

Well get on it, pencil-monkey. Also, tell him Dave says his graphic novel is COOL, and wonders if he has been approached about TV rights.

I've chosen Banoobie to go next. If he/she doesn't show by sun-down, you're my backup.

Just finished the movie. Certainly wasn't mind-blowing, but it was better than I kind of expected. When it's sci-fi I have a hard time deciding between looking at the big picture or nitpicking it to death, this one even while looking at the big picture had a lot of glaring problems. Still entertaining enough to watch, and as an added bonus Bruce Willis with hair! 4.5/10
