A daring synthetic biologist, after a car accident kills his family, will stop at nothing to bring them back, even if it means pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force and the physical laws of science.
Keanu is fine in action flicks with little dialog. This was not one of those. He can't act. He never could. When he plays a lawyer or scientist, he's still a surfer dude with no expression and bad diction. The many close ups in this movie also show that he has a home supply of Botox. The "science" in this movie - isn't. In fact out of the blue we jump from cyborgs to cloning with no segue. Somehow he moves an entire laboratory into his basement overnight with no one noticing? The one shot of people pulling up to the lab makes it seem like it's a condo in a suburban neighborhood. The whole movie is jaw dropping ridiculous. You have one A lister, and two B listers. I only kept watching out of disbelief, nothing better to do at the moment, and some good production values. Script? Nah. Acting? The Keanu School - dude. The plot? Well, they tell you in the movie blurb he loses his family and decides to clone them. In 3 weeks, he steals all the government equipment, and totally changes all the research done to that point. And he loves the word "algorhythm". The ending makes Disney look dark. Please, go check the fridge for a beer instead. The 10 reviews? Keanu has friends.
